Lets face it. What do you expect to happen with the total disrespect for Law, Order and the Constitution being broadcast daily, and if any of these brave men go to their superiors for marching orders or the assurance that they will be kept in the loop they are derided and threatened by political carpetbaggers. The stress on men like this must be phenomenal! We need to make it clear, we support them, and we will have their backs in what is to come. Don't depend on those career colonels. Trust in the American People! Come out and talk with us! Don't limit yourselves to Democrat boot-lickers who demand diversity and all sorts of immorality. They are nothing, and they'll be less than nothing once the ball starts rolling. Don't shut yourselves away from your roots: AMERICA!!

This is very sad indeed. Someone who had accomplished so much in his military career, and husband and father as well. Unfortunately, suicide is becoming all too common with our veterans, who in most cases have served WAY too many tours in the muslim hell holes. They need to be breaking things and killing people, not playing traffic cop for a bunch of worthless muzzies.

War (fill in the blank) you up. It can dig in deeply. My analogy is stereo speakers, no matter how good, how expensive, push too much electricity through them and they will blow.

Personally, I'd place 'blame' squarely on the mis-managed administration of the Politically Inept Pentagon management Team put in place and left alone by the Obama-biden Administration... They had no concept of what war fighting means...Setting in place contradictory Rules of Engagement, and then letting their political Officer Corps administer them was virtually TREASONUS. Those actions were political and administrative IEDs planted to screw up the Military for on-coming generations...And then they allowed the Veteran's Administration to mis-manage their care of Vets in favor of the Union and Politics within the Federal Bureaucracy....Again, administrative IEDs, planted to sabotage the American future.... Some of that promised "...FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE..." OBlameless promissed America.... President TRUMP has his work cut out in the next four yars, to give usp back America..... My dream is to see Obama perp-walked into some courthouse, somewhere. One of Pres. Trump's biggest agenda tasks in his next term; is to re-build the futures [ and their future] of our Veterans, and the Veteran's.Administration... All those 'other'[ Political] changes will most likely be easier done!

Having served in Viet Nam, I have always had feelings of being a Pawn in a much bigger game of dishonesty and power players that USE the military to make lots of money dishonestly. I have no doubt Master Sgt. Marckesano, after putting his life on the line many times finally realized he was serving Dishonest Monsters as Masters. That realization takes everything you believe in and trashes it in the most nasty way. Thank YOU for your exemplary service and RIP Master Sgt. Marckesano, they can't abuse you any longer! I got past that and fight every day to get rid of the Ba$tards that run our government in dishonest ways!

More than two dozen shootings across New York City over the weekend left a one-year-old dead and at least 34 others injured, some potentially fatally, dwarfing the number of people killed there by the coronavirus during the same period.It appears that over the weekend, particularly that fateful Saturday that left the one-year-old dead, NYC residents had a higher chance of getting shot than dying from coronavirus.While NYC has largely tamed the lethal and highly contagious coronavirus, another epidemic is starting to rear its ugly head in the city once again — violent crimes.

Ashburn, Va.—Washington’s NFL team will get rid of the name ‘Redskins’ on Monday, according to multiple reports. It’s unclear when a new name will be revealed for one of the league’s oldest franchises. USA Today, ESPN, The Washington Post, Washington Times and Sports Business Journal reported Sunday night that owner Dan Snyder is set to “retire” the name. Yahoo, on Saturday, reported a name change was imminent. The team launched a ‘thorough review’ of the name July 3 that the NFL supported. That came in the aftermath of prominent sponsors FedEx, Nike, PepsiCo and Bank of America asking the team to change the name.

As for baseball, let’s be honest. It’s boring to watch and it’s even boring to play. Ordinary people who aren’t being paid to play baseball cannot endure it except by playing it co-ed with beer, which makes practically anything endurable including watching paint dry. About 90% of baseball consists of the players standing around while touching their privates whenever the TV camera is pointed at them or sitting around the dugout pretending to watch the other team while touching their privates. They often spit. Why do people pay to see millionaires lolling about in a park and hiding in a little concrete bomb shelter while spitting and touching their privates?

On Friday, the teachers’ union in Los Angeles, the nation’s second-largest district, demanded full-time remote learning when the academic year begins on Aug. 18, and called President Donald Trump’s push to reopen schools part of a “dangerous, anti-science agenda that puts the lives of our members, our students and our families at risk.” Teachers say crucial questions about

During the 1930s and 1940s, there were many genuine communists, as well as fellow travelers, working in Hollywood. Once the Cold War began, Hollywood turned against those people and instituted its blacklist, which made it impossible for anyone with communist sympathies to work openly in Hollywood. Of late, the further left you lean in Hollywood, the more you are to be applauded. That’s why it’s incredibly ironic to realize that Hollywood is once again blacklisting people – only this time, blacklisting means that the only people listed for employment have to be black.

The U.S. Army sent an email to its military and civilian members after the Fourth of July that included a graphic that claimed innocuous words and phrases like “colorblind,” “all lives matter” and the Trump Campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” are evidence of “white supremacy.” The graphic also listed “Celebration of Columbus Day,” the “Denial of White Privilege,” “Talking about ‘American Exceptionalism,’” and saying “There’s Only One Human Race” as behaviors that are indicative of white supremacy. After Army personnel brought the offensive email to the attention of a U.S. Congressman, the Army said the material was “unapproved” and sent out “in error.”

Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was lampooned for suggesting that the recent 130% spike in deadly NYC shootings was due to coronavirus-induced unemployment — and not on her and other Black Lives Matter operatives’ reckless campaign to “Defund the Police.” AOC (aka – “Bronx Bolshevik“) made the disingenuous comments to deflect blame for the mass slaughters of black people occurring in Democrat-run cities around the country. In a virtual town hall meeting on Zoom, AOC desperately tried to shift the blame for the alarming surge in shootings and murders in Democrat-run cities where police have been pulled back.
