Utah Sen. Mitt Romney said President Trump was "wrong" to claim that U.S. military generals want to be at war to help bomb manufacturers make money. Romney, a Republican, told CNN that he was disappointed in Trump's remarks about the top generals at the Pentagon. He said it was "offensive" for Trump to suggest that generals are trying to keep wars alive to make defense suppliers happy.

Offensive, but true? Romney would side with rogue warmongering generals, wouldn't he? Just like John McCain, Romney was picked by the establishment, not the people in the GOP. Just like John McCain and biden, he was a throwaway candidate. Nobody expected him to win. He has a chip on the shoulder, and he can't put the fake Romney back in the closet. He's too sorry to make his way off that darn fence. Jump, Romney, jump!

The military/industrial complex has been an issue in the US political arena since 1961 when it was raised by Eisenhower, the top Military leader of the Combined Allied Forces in Europe himself and later a two term Republican President receiving advice on US military policy and issues concerning overseas military engagements from the top ranks of the military leadership himself. Since that time it has been a major Demonrat and hard left apparatus and media talking point every time the USA was considering or got engaged in foreign military engagements, Therefore it is quite extraordinary that the most outspoken criticism of the Trump comment on the issues is being carried out by the hypocritical Demonrat left apparatus and media complex. Trumps remarks can be seen as a stratagem to bring the left hypocrisy further out into the open. BTW the Industrial Military complex achieves two objectives for those engaged in it: More "fruit salad" on the uniforms of the Military Brass and more green backs into the pockets of the armament corporations.

President Trump is not afraid to speak the truth. The vast majority of Americans love and respect our military, but anyone can see that we have been fighting wars not to win but to continue warring. The world knows we have the ability to crush our enemies but since WWII we have been fighting not so much to win but to make a statement and sometimes the statement is unclear. Had we continued our philosophy of war after WWII, the world would be a different place. The President is right, enough of our men and women have been sacrificed upon the altar of war for profit. President Eisenhower warned us of this because he knew the lure of massive profits would result in endless conflict. He was right and the President knows it. Pierre Delecto has one driving force in his life and that is the rabid pursuit of making money any way he can. He and his boys bought and sold companies with little thought to the lives they were destroying in the process, therefore, his self-righteous moralizing is especially despicable. He believes himself to be far and above morally superior to this President which I find extremely disgusting. His preening sanctimony is hiding a very dark heart. Give me Trump who calls out the military industrial complex that has had far too much influence in Washington for far too long.

Generals also like limited wars because they believe there should always be many combat tested troops in the services. Remember that President Kennedy's generals convinced him to try to invade Cuba in the "Bay of Pigs" operation. That operation was a total failure. After action reports concluded that the Bay of Pigs operation had no chance of success and resulted in many casualties. As Kennedy was in Navy combat in the Pacific during WW2, he was not a novice regarding the military, but nevertheless he was fooled by those generals. Kennedy learned a valuable lesson as follows: "Be very wary of Generals who recommend military operations that are not responsive to hostile military acts against the interests of the United States." Kennedy never recovered from the damage to his presidency caused by his Bay of Pigs decisions, which in retrospect were generally considered to be ill-advised if not reckless.

Yep, it started in Korea, then Vietnam, then the Cold War, then Lebanon, (during Lebanon, the ONLY war we won since WW2, and that country is STILL liberated from Marxism and celebrates their national Thanksgiving on 25 October is Grenada), then the First Gulf War, 9/11, then Afghanistan, then the Second Gulf War, then Syria. Except for one tiny island in the Lesser Antilles, name one victory resulting in unconditional surrender or complete defeat since WW2. In Lebanon in the 80's, it was the State department running that s*** show, requiring State's permission for the Marines guarding the barracks to GET ammunition, then permission to LOAD their weapons, then permission to return fire. Reagan was president at the time but guess which State Department pogue forced their policy on Marines, forced the Marines to live in ONE building and then blamed the barracks bombing on Col Geraghty, 24 MAU CO? Former Marine Donald Rumsfled, that's who. Reagan summarily fired Rumsfled and replaced him with another milquetoast, Bartholomew, but at least Reagan told State that from then on, Marines will defend themselves. It's both parties but it's mostly Republicans like Mitt, Graham, McConnell, McQueeg, and MOST others. They get away with fooling us by calling military-human-sacrifices-for-nothing, "national security" crises. Follow the donuts. Thank God Trump is finally doing something about it and being honest about it because for the FIRST time in my lifetime, Trump knows "that Tommy sees." Mitt can sit on it and spin.

If military brass do not lead armies nobody will know their names. Most men don't join the military to sit behind a desk and fill out paperwork. That's why they need a Commander in Chief.

Right on, #15. JFK started that war, let the CIA run it and after the ground troops were committed, withdrew the air support before they dropped the first bomb. Total clustercluck by an egotistical Harvard man.

#15, Kennedy chickened out on the promised support in the Bay of Pigs fiasco. The promised air support was never supplied at the last minute, leaving the Cuban freedom fighters to be slaughtered on the beach. As far as his naval service, how could anyone allow his small boat to be run over by an enemy destroyer, unless he and the crew were all drunk and sleeping. Any other captain would have been court-martialed for losing his ship, as was the captain of the USS Indianapolis, whose ship was sunk by a torpedo from a submarine. Talk about rich privilege!

It's easy to send young Americans to war, when your children are not any of those young Americans. Bidens vacuum nosed son didn't go in harm's way, at least not any from an enemy combatant. VP Pence is not pushing for war, he has skin in the game. I've never understood why Songbird McPain was always looking for a war to get us in. By rights, he should have been the biggest anti war member of congress.

So, how many businesses are involved with Bain that are in the military industrial complex? How much of Delecto's pocket is hurting thanks to Trump being the first president to not get us into a fresh new war? Romney just needs to button it, because somebody is going to start thinking he has some financial dealings in that military industrial complex. Even Eisenhower warned against the MIC back in his day. He knew exactly who and what they were, even then. When Generals throw our boys in front of the cannons, all to feather their retirement, those Generals need to be dealt with.

Poster #17 forgot Grenada. We did have a victory there (over Cuban troops). But it was a "play" war. The military had all these nice toys, there were no wars going on, and nothing to use the new toys on. There was no military action to help promotion and commendation. So we used our atomic flyswatter on Cuba in Grenada

Mittens Romney is of the big time international investor class, so it stands to reason if his past investments were closely scrutinized that one would find that he has made a lot of money through investments in corporations that have profited greatly through contracts relating to the endless Middle East Wars. Of course not every Admiral or General wants the seemingly endless wars to continue so that certain corporations and themselves could benefit financially, but it is a matter of fact that a lot of those high ranking military bureaucrats, after they retire from the military, end up with an inside track to very lucrative employment opportunities with defense contractors who have benefited greatly from the seemingly endless wars.

Here’s a contrary opinion not about Mitt the Weasel but about Trump making these public statements in the first place. Of course defense contractors are in business to make money, but Pentagon officials only get to spend the money that congress authorizes, and as a percentage of the DOD budget procurement is consistently far less than personnel costs in our all volunteer military. That said, here’s what wrong with vilifying unnamed military officers and civilian DOD officials: 1) Another unforced error, politically speaking, especially as it will be used to extend the news cycle lifespan of the absurd story that he disparaged dead servicemen. 2) Perpetuates the age old accusation – libel, really - from enemies of America at home and abroad that the military is filled with trigger happy Dr. Strangelove characters eager to start wars, and that war profits drive our defense acquisitions and foreign policy. Folks, in our history our military leaders have often given bad advice to presidents and the congress alike, but the military has no power to declare or conduct war on its own. On the other hand, presidents and congress have frequently ignored sound military advice in the conduct of wars, such as LBJ personally approving what targets in North Vietnam would be hit while our fighter bombers were waiting on the runway to launch, or, in retrospect, allowing the Korean War to end in a draw that left the Kim dynasty in power and resulting in the nuclear threat presented today. 3) Trump’s words will be used by Democrats as an argument to suppress the Pentagon’s budget for some system we may really need. China is already overtaking us in some areas, with no letup in sight for their expansion. The military budget as a share of GDP is currently about half of what it was during the height of the cold war; despite this the Democrats are eager to cut it further to fund more social(ist) programs. This language gives them even more cover to do so. 4) I do not believe that keeping Lockheed happy is part of the decision making process when we go to war. If we’ve learned anything, it’s that the best way to avoid war is to be so well equipped and trained as to deter any enemy. Erwin Rommel was in awe of America’s capacity to produce overwhelming numbers of tanks, planes and munitions, and warned his fellow generals after the invasion of Normandy: “Our friends from the East (Russian front) cannot imagine what they are in for here. It’s not a matter of fanatical hordes to be driven forward in masses against our line, with no regard to casualties and little recourse to tactical craft; here we are facing an enemy who applies all of his native intelligence to the use of his many technical resources, who spares no expenditure of material and whose every operation goes its course as though it had been the subject of repeated rehearsal”. Achieving THAT kind of readiness and dominance on the battlefield is what motivates most of our military, not sucking up to defense contractors. OK, I’ve got my MAGA hat on and will vote for Trump again whatever he says or does - but this kind of talk drives me crazy.

32, READ my post, I was there, and the island was freed and occupied by the Marines BEFORE the 82nd got there. Please tell the the families of Jeff Sharver, Jeb Seagle and Pat Guigerre that they were just atomic fly swatters to get generals more ribbons. The Cubans were called Unarmed Construction Workers. They were the ones who shot down Jeff, Pat and Jeb with their construction equipment. You also don't know that the ten thousand foot runway built by the Chinese, Cubans, Russians and Czechs who were in uniform, on the island when we invaded that the American press forgot to tell you, was a tactical air base under construction and NOT a tourist airport. Then we got to go to Beirut.

I'm all for sending the military in if our national interest is at stake, but only if we go in guns blazing and to win. Not since WWII have we gone into a military conflict to actually win something. Everything has been a holding action, or to prop up some corrupt regime. If we're not going to use the weapons we have to win, then don't send troops in to get killed and then just leave. The troops do their job extremely well. Seems those in charge don't. The last 65 plus years proves Trump's point.

Unlike Roger Dangerfield, Mitt deserves little respect. The military industrial complex has always been there. JFK died because of Johnson and his military industrial complex donors, who wanted war in Vietnam. If Trump has gotten wind of them, and is going after them, I hope the Secret Service likes overtime, because those guys won't announce themselves, but they always have a nice little cover story about who's to blame.

COVID is not the first viral flu pandemic America has faced, yet the reaction is unprecedented. The entire economy has been shut down for months, some sectors still closed. Elective yet necessary medical care has been postponed leading to excess sickness and death well beyond that caused by the Chinese virus. Many schools remain closed, as do restaurants, hair salons, and churches. We are forced to keep six feet away from each other at all times and are expected to wear masks, whether outside and alone or inside sharing an intimate moment with a loved one.

Mitt Romney (R-Utah) accused President Trump of attempting to “further inflame racial tensions” with his response to unrest in American cities. “The comments and tweets over the past few days, including a retweet of a 2019 video clearly intended to further inflame racial tensions, are simply jaw-dropping,” Romney told The New York Times.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), acting chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said congressional oversight is facing a “historic crisis” after the Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, notified Congress on Saturday that the intelligence community will be scaling back in-person congressional briefings on election security. “Congressional oversight of intelligence activities now faces a historic crisis,” Rubio said in a statement. “Intelligence agencies have a legal obligation to keep Congress informed of their activities.” In his letter to Congress announcing the change, Ratcliffe said that the intelligence community would switch over to written updates on election security issues to ensure that intelligence information “is not misunderstood nor politicized.”

More than 30 former staffers from Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign are signing onto an effort to elect Joe Biden — the same man they worked to defeat during the 2012 campaign. The latest initiative launched by Republicans eager to unseat their party’s presidential nominee comes as Romney is increasingly viewed with scorn by President Donald Trump’s fervent base.

The Democratic Party propaganda machine, more commonly known as the mainstream media, has been gushing over the establishment Republicans who appeared at the Democratic National Convention to denounce President Trump and endorse Joe Biden, but as last night’s Republican National Convention showed, the days of the Republican Party being a pale shadow of the Democrats are over.

Former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele has joined the Lincoln Project, a group of “constitutional conservatives” who oppose President Trump, the organization announced. Steele, who served as RNC chair until 2011, will join the “Never Trump” group as a senior adviser, the group said Monday. In a statement, the former party bigwig justified abandoning the GOP, arguing that “The chair behind the Resolute Desk has always been bigger than any political party.

In mid-March of 2020, the United States of America became a socialist country, despite President Trump's promise in his State of the Union address one year prior. To those who lost their non-essential jobs, those who met empty shelves, those who discovered that their "free" education was too costly, those driven insane by incessant fear-mongering, and those faced with capricious and nonsensical restrictions — welcome to socialism. Deceived by the arrogance of science and appeal to authority, or perhaps with false science to mask nefarious motives, public health and safety were used as a contrivance to replace liberty, freedom, and democracy with the Game of Socialism

A group of community activists implored Gov. J.B. Pritzker to declare a state of emergency and have the Illinois National Guard deployed to Chicago on Sunday, just two days after Mayor Lori Lightfoot and her allies stymied a similar push during a special City Council meeting. In calling for the assistance, the activists pointed to the city’s surging summer gun violence as they urged both members of the City Council and Congress to rally behind police officers they claim have been outnumbered and attacked at recent protests.

Utah Sen. Mitt Romney said President Trump was "wrong" to claim that U.S. military generals want to be at war to help bomb manufacturers make money. Romney, a Republican, told CNN that he was disappointed in Trump's remarks about the top generals at the Pentagon. He said it was "offensive" for Trump to suggest that generals are trying to keep wars alive to make defense suppliers happy.

Target Corp. plans to increase its number of Black employees by 20% over the next three years as part of its growing efforts to build a more diverse and inclusive company, executives said. The Minneapolis retailer on Thursday announced its latest commitment to racial equity as it also made public more detailed information about the ethnic and gender makeup of its employees and leaders. Target’s total workforce last year was 360,000, with 25% of employees Latino, 15% Black, 5% Asian and 5% people who identified as mixed race, American Indian or other underrepresented groups. However, the diversity is less the higher the position,

The University of Rhode Island recently announced plans to remove two murals depicting the events of World War II due to their lack of diversity. The decision was prompted after students complained that the mural was not compatible with the university’s values of inclusivity. According to the school’s Vice President of Student Affairs, “Some of our students have even shared with us they didn’t feel comfortable sitting in that space.”

Ever since Attorney General Barr appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham to investigate the origins of the Russia collusion probe, Trump supporters have been waiting for the bomb to drop. And waiting. And waiting. But nothing ever happens. Judicial Watch’s founder Tom Fitton thinks that conservatives are being scammed. Instead of an investigation, it’s just another Washington cover-up. I suspect (or, maybe, hope), though, that Barr and Durham are holding their fire because of the election. Tom Fitton, whose organization doggedly uncovers documents the Swamp wants to hide, was on Fox News’ Lou Dobbs Tonight. He is concerned that the John Durham investigation is a sham

According to last February’s ratings, 93 percent of us are already not watching the Academy Awards. Now Oscar is wondering: How do I whittle down that last 7 percent? Answer: woke quotas. That thunk you heard coming out of La-La Land on Tuesday was the sound of the Academy grandly planting its face in the sidewalk by announcing it was formally rejecting the pursuit of artistic quality in favor of a byzantine quota system. Starting with 2024 films, your project can’t even be considered for a Best Picture Oscar unless it meets a set of diversity targets

Just weeks after helping to broker peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), President Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. The nomination submitted by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, lauded Trump for his efforts toward resolving protracted conflicts worldwide. “For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde, a four-term member of Parliament who also serves as chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, told Fox News in an exclusive interview.

An American Civil Liberties Union official in Kentucky chastised Transylvania University over the weekend for accepting Nicholas Sandmann as a student, calling the move a “stain” on the institution.Sandmann made headlines back in January 2019 when a Native American activist stood in front of the teen and began chanting in his face during a pro-life rally at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Sandmann, who was wearing a MAGA hat at the time and is a supporter of President Trump, held his ground and smiled at the man as he continued to talk in his face.“Does anyone else think it’s a bit of a stain on Transylvania University

This year was scary enough. Traditional Halloween activities won't be allowed for residents in Los Angeles County this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to local health officials. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced a ban on door-to-door trick-or-treating, carnivals, festivals, live entertainment and haunted houses. "Door to door trick or treating is not allowed because it can be very difficult to maintain proper social distancing on porches and at front doors especially in neighborhoods that are popular with trick or treaters," officials said in a news release detailing guidelines for the annual tradition.

A Rhode Island professor with a history of incendiary comments against conservatives is under fire this week for appearing to suggest that the fatal shooting of a Patriot Prayer supporter during unrest in Portland last month was morally justified. The comment from Erik Loomis, a history professor at the University of Rhode Island, came in response to a comment on his blog post: “Why Was Michael Reinoehl Killed?” The post questioned whether police deliberately “murdered” 48-year-old Michael Reinoehl, the man who fatally shot Aaron “Jay” Danielson on Aug. 29, the night Trump supporters clashed with backers of Black Lives Matter in Portland.

Backlash against the French film “Cuties” continues to escalate, with objectors now demanding Netflix be canceled in response to the movie’s perceived sexualization of children. “Unbelievable that they released ‘Cuties’. So child porn is ok now Netflix? Raise your hand if you agree this is disgusting,” wrote one Twitter user, using the hashtag #CancelNetflix. The Twitter campaign against the streaming giant follows its release in August of a heavily criticized trailer and poster for the flick. The online outrage continues despite Netflix releasing a statement saying “we’re deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork that we used” to promote the film. “Netflix is comfortable
