President Donald Trump shared a letter on Thursday afternoon from famed attorney John M. Dowd attacking former Secretary of Defense James Mattis, who made a vicious attack on the president this week.Mattis’ statement claimed that the numerous violent rioters represented only “small number of lawbreakers,” which does not square well with numerous videos that have emerged showing widespread looting, attacks on law enforcement, and the destruction of businesses in the nation’s inner cities. Mattis’ statement also appeared to claim that Trump’s desire to restore law and order was somehow an attempt to divide the American people.Trump shared the letter from Dowd to Mattis late on Thursday, which stated: Jim:

Publicly shaming someone NEVER works. Such letters should be known only to the sender and the recipient. Only then might one actually hope that a quiet rebuke might work.

Criticizes a standing US President, only a few months removed from serving on his cabinet. If for the preservation of military decorum, Mad Dog can take a page out of the General Jeremy Boorda method of dealing with personal disgrace.

Geez, not long ago he was "Mad Dog" and an indispensable man. Guy who was going to straighten everything out. Now he's a bum. PDT's problem throughout his administration has been personnel. Mattis is another example of why retired Generals should be kept out of the civilian SecDef's chair, and how PDT has chosen badly in the past. And where is Rex these days? Waiting to hear yet from him, too.

When President Trump was elected by the American people to take on the corrupt DC UniParty and bureaucratic DC Deep State he was a one man show, and did not have big political machine behind him. So many people who Trump really did not know were recommended to him, mainly by establishment Republicans, and took high level jobs in the new Trump Administration. Some were actually never Trump Republicans and liberal Democrats who were never allied to Trump’s political agenda and the promises that Trump made to the American electorate during Trump’s presidential campaign. In reality some of those people were out to sabotage Trump from the get-go. Clearly it was a very bad move to bring insider retired military General Officers, who were actually unelected liberal Democrat politicians who came up in rank during the Obama era, into the new Trump Administration. Those retired General Officers who were used to everyone below them in rank just saying “Yes, Sir” as they commanded military bureaucracies, and it has become clear now that those retired General Officers considered Trump to be an outsider “recruit” because of his lack of establishment elected political experience, turned their noses up at Trump, and one by one were forced out of the Administration. During his campaign, Trump promised to get the US military out of the endless Middle East wars that those General Officers were unable to win over almost twenty years. When Trump started planning on quickly removing a small number of US troops from Northern Syria where they could have been overrun along the Syria-Turkey border during a known coming Turkish incursion into Syria those retired Generals immediately opposed Trump and certainly oppose generally getting the US military out of the endless Middle East Wars which has been a “rain maker” that expanded and elevated a lot of General Officers military careers.

General Officers should keep their mouths SHUT and only answer when asked for their opinions. In that way the POTUS can use them as wise counsel, but this wannabe politician opened his mouth and erased any doubt as to the President's wisdom to excrete him.

I wish Mattis had not taken the bait to write or maybe sign his name to, this really offensive letter. A bigger man would have asked to speak with the President to share his thoughts and counsel. That is, he would have, if his intentions were noble, if he loves his country, the country he donned a uniform and faced many dangers for, ...he should not have sullied his own service. It does sadden me.

The last five minutes of a basketball game often stretch out in a logarithmic fashion. If one team is far enough behind to be desperate, the players will begin committing intentional fouls simply to force a free throw from the foul line. To be sure, the fouled player on the leading team may end up scoring an easy two points. He may just as easily miss the shot, allowing the fouling team to recover the ball. It's a risk for all concerned.Personally, I view this tactic as a pathetic delay of the inevitable. But there are plenty of people who will disagree, especially those

Three years ago, the inauguration of the forty-fifth president of the United States was commemorated by a concert featuring Lee Greenwood and Jon Voight, a parade, three official inaugural balls, massive women’s marches, the writing of a fishy e-mail to herself by outgoing National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and the January 17 publication of David Horowitz’s Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America. The book, a comprehensive account and vigorous vindication of Trump’s platform, became a New York Times bestseller.Now, with the 2020 elections approaching, Horowitz has published a follow-up book entitled Blitz: Trump Will Smash the Left and Win.

Violence is the point.Protests responding to the cruel police killing of George Floyd have been turned into nationwide riots and looting. This is not about Floyd anymore.

If you thought “abolish the police”—or it’s more moderate iteration, “defund the police”—was just some asinine slogan blue-check journalists, woke academics, and pandering public officials post on Twitter to show they support the Black Lives Matter movement, then you’re not keeping up with the revolution.This week Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, announced the city would be slashing the police department’s budget by $100 to $150 million and instead “reinvesting in black communities and communities of color.” The cuts to the LA police will make up the bulk of $250 million in funds to be reallocation to “end racism in our city,” Garcetti said.

The Daily Wire reports that Joe Biden is expected to attend George Floyd’s funeral. Biden, however, is not expected to attend the funerals of any of the innocent Americans murdered during riots over the past two weeks. Nor will he be attending the funerals of the black men killed by other black men every day in cities across the country.Floyd’s funeral provides the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee a political opportunity that the others do not. And that, of course, is all this is. Biden is using Floyd’s dead body as a campaign platform, just as he used Floyd’s dying words as a fundraising gimmick. It’s crass, disgusting, and offensive.

Writing at the Washington Post, author Alyssa Rosenberg has a unique solution for the problems with our policing: Cancel all the cop shows on television. She argues we need to do that because there’s a “reactionary streak” behind the “surface liberalism” in these shows. For a century, Hollywood has been collaborating with police departments, telling stories that whitewash police shootings and valorizing an action-hero style of policing over the harder, less dramatic work of building relationships with the communities cops are meant to serve and protect. There’s a reason for that beyond a reactionary streak hiding below the industry’s surface
