More troops say they'll vote
for Biden than Trump: poll

Original Article

More active-duty U.S. troops say they’ll vote for former Vice President Joseph R. Biden than President Trump in the November election, a new poll shows, continuing a steady decline in the commander in chief’s favorability ratings among service members. A Military Times survey released Monday found that if the election were held today, 41% of active-duty troops say they’d vote for Mr. Biden, compared to just 37% for the president. Another 13% said they intend to back a third-party candidate, while 9% said they’d skip the presidential election altogether. The Military Times surveyed 1,018 active-duty troops for the poll.

Comments:

Must be fake news. They want more transgenderism and Diversity training? They want more inept, politically appointed leaders like Barry installed? They want their loved ones at home to live amid endless violent Peaceful Protests while they engage in endless interventions that do us no good overseas?

I don’t believe this for even a minute. But If it is somehow true, we as a nation are in terrible trouble because of what the “education” system has done to our young people. I don’t see antifa types joining the military. Unpatriotic leftists signing up in any numbers for service is far fetched.

Two questions. Could this reflect the racial composition of the armed forces? Can Biden voters be trusted to defend the country?

It wouldn't surprise me. The services are filled with African Americans who enter solely for the benefits and pick career fields that assure them sedentary, no-risk office jobs. My entire admin staff in service was African-American. The guys who were in jobs that deployed first were all White. The "tooth-to-tail" ratio of the services is probably well beyond 1-10 at this point. Special forces are largely white and Hispanic troops. It's a fact. Nobody talks about it. They wear the uniform, vote for rainbows and unicorns, and never fire a weapon.

as an enlisted Navy man back in the 70's, we would always try to screw with "the system"...if some guy walked on our ship with a clipboard to ask us who we were voting for, we would all say "Howdy Doody" if he were on the ballot. We would never tell the truth.....

I wouldn't dismiss the report so easily. #6 has it right. There are many blacks in the Armed Forces. The benefits part of it is true . But their main fear is being ordered to fire upon fellow blacks. They know the rioters are going to be mainly African Americans. I think PDT is sensitive to that. But if protecting life and property comes down to it, he will do what is required.

Comparing blacks in the military to blacks on the street of NY City or Chicago is a mistake. Those in the military are just as patriotic as anyone else, of any color. There are a few bad apples, same as for any group, but they are good people. Ask any military person, not some fake news outfit!

Buy it! Sorry but having seen this first hand now, doesn't shock me at all. The Army in particular has turned into a make work program for single Millennial moms who want the benefits and the officer corps are a bunch of overeducated, egghead academics who want to work until they are in their 40's (with one year's overseas duty under their belt), get their Masters and PhD on the military's dime, and then retire with an amazing pension and benefits until they die. Government employees to the core.

Not buying it for a minute. The communists in the military are louder and more emboldened, but far fewer than patriots. One of the many downsides of the military is that they make everyone exactly the same. They dress the same, walk the same, run the same, eat the same and even turn wrenches the same. As a consequence some troops will do anything they can get away with to stand out from the herd.

I had the great displeasure of serving along side a black female commissioned officer with a chip on her shoulder almost as big as Michelle Obama. This was circa 1988. Everything was racial/racist to her. And my experiences in those 5 years of active duty were similar to poster #6's observations and this was 20 years ago. Yeah, we all know about the only color in the USMC is green but not sure when Condor44 served but his beloved Corps isn't so all green as it was during his years of service.

What troops said that? Not the Air Force guys servicing the A-10 Warthog refit & upgrades. Not the grunts who's lives were saved by NOT deploying them to Syria. Not the Navy guys building the Virginia class attack subs. And not the guys fitting out the USS Gerald R. Ford and John F. Kennedy aircraft carriers at Newport News. All of that activity courtesy of Trump, rebuilding the military and pulling us out of conflicts. The only ones who are against it are the Hawks like Mattis, Clinton, the clowns in NATO like Merkel, and all the others who need to see the US involved in foreign wars. Our troops LOVE this President.

Graceland, the Elvis Presley estate that is Memphis' signature landmark and most popular tourist draw, was hit overnight with "Defund the Police" and "BLM" (Black Lives Matter) graffiti. Vandals also struck the Levitt Shell in Overton Park, spray-painting scrawled obscenities—"F--- TRUMP" and "F--- STRICKLAND," a reference to Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland—alongside "BLM," "Defund MPD," "EAT THE RICH" and other phrases. The Graceland vandalism was more elaborate, with "DEFUND MPD" and "BLM" painted in thick black letters on the sidewalk along Elvis Presley Boulevard, alongside "#DEFUND THE POLICE," "ABOLISH ICE" (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and other slogans sprayed in black and orange letters

Levittown, NY—In the U.S. Declaration of Independence, the phrase "created equal" is followed by the passage that Americans are "endowed… with certain unalienable rights," including "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." The writers and signers of the 1776 declaration were white, male property owners who extended those unalienable rights only to people like themselves. It wasn't until 1856 that all U.S. states allowed non-property owners the right to vote. Even that milestone allowed only white men to be full U.S. citizens, but the precedent had long been set—that ownership of property could be the root of inequity in the U.S. The discrimination and segregation

Joe Biden, who claims he wants to fact-check Donald Trump in real time during the presidential debates, told a real whopper on Thursday during his visit to Kenosha. “People fear that’s, which, that which is different. We gotta, for example, why in God’s name don’t we teach history in history classes? A black man invented the light bulb, not a white guy named Edison.”(Snip for tweet) Fact check: False. Make no mistake about it, Thomas Edison invented the light bulb. Joe Biden presumably was referring to Lewis H. Latimer, a former slave who worked as a researcher under Edison,

A Washington Post op-ed published Thursday suggested Americans should prepare for war if the election result is anything but a landslide for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.The op-ed, titled “What’s the worst that could happen?” is written by Rosa Brooks, a law professor at Georgetown University. In it, Brooks notes that the Transition Integrity Project, which she co-founded, “built a series of war games,” gathered participants “and asked them to imagine what they’d do in a range of election and transition scenarios.” “A landslide for Joe Biden resulted in a relatively orderly transfer of power.

There is new evidence supporting President Trump's public call for drug testing before the all-important presidential debates. (snip) As Joe Biden’s mental acuity seems to be declining rapidly, his ability seemingly to rise to the occasion when in a high-visibility public appearance does appear suspicious. Now comes something else suspicious: a bruise and swelling on Biden’s left hand right where an intravenous drip needle is customarily inserted when administering drugs (such as amphetamines).

Despite publicly living as a black woman for years, George Washington University associate professor Jessica Krug admitted Thursday that she is actually a “culture leech”—who is white. “For the better part of my adult life, every move I’ve made, every relationship I’ve formed, has been rooted in the napalm toxic soil of lies,” Krug, 38, writes in a brief but life-shattering Medium post titled “The Truth, and the Anti-Black Violence of My Lies.” The self-proclaimed “historian of politics, ideas, and cultural practices in Africa and the African Diaspora” goes on to detail a lengthy trail of public deception.
