Pentagon officials confirm break from tradition,
will not host Armed Forces Farewell
tribute to Trump

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 1/16/2021 8:09:12 PM

This year, for the first time since its inception in 1989, the Armed Forces Farewell event will reportedly not be held for an outgoing president.“The Pentagon, in a break with recent tradition, will not host an Armed Forces Farewell tribute to President Donald Trump. … Two senior defense officials confirmed … Thursday that no military farewell is being planned for the commander in chief,” Defense One reported Thursday.No reason was specified for the break in tradition. It’s also not clear whether the event was canceled by military brass or by the president himself. The latter scenario seems unlikely given his love for the military.

FTA “Trump, who had already said he will not attend President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, is planning a ceremonial farewell at Joint Base Andrews, the base outside Washington where Air Force One is headquartered,” Wanna bet there will be thousands of troops there to send him off, not because they were ordered to, but because they wanted to. The generals and admirals would rather be giving Sleepy Joe a tongue bath and will not be there.

" ... Two senior defense officials confirmed … Thursday that no military farewell is being planned for the commander in chief ..." The two senior defense officials are likely what's left after Obamas's PURGE of the military's free-thinking conservative officers. Just the people America needs now to stand up against her adversaries today. Play taps for America folks.

These morons don't get it. President Trump agreeing to this ceremony would be another acceptance of the stolen election. He is making sure that he does not participate in any formal ceremony that would signify his acceptance of NMP (Never My President) Biden's stolen election coup. What am I saying - Biden didn't steal the election, he can't even clothe himself, his wife and fellow communist death democrats engineered the coup.

The White House released a list of President Trump's accomplishments. Long list. You can find it today on Gateway Pundit, "White House Releases List of President Trump's Accomplishments." Just one part of it is headlined: COLOSSAL REBUILDING OF THE MILITARY 1. Completely rebuilt United States military with over $22 trillion in defense spending including 738 billion for 2020. 2. Secured three pay raises for our service members and their families. 3. Established the Space Force - the first new branch of the U.S. Armed Forces since 1947. 4. Modernized and recapitalized our nuclear forces and missile defense to ensure they serve as a strong deterrent. 5. Upgraded our cyber defense by elevating the Cyber Command into a major warfighting command and by reducing burdensome procedural restrictions on cyber operations. 6. Vetoed the FY21 National Defense Act, which failed to protect our national security, disrespected the history of our veterans and military and contradicted our efforts to put America First. (That's just some of the things President Trump has done for our military.) And yet the Pentagon has made a decision not to have a fly-over ! ! ! That's sad. Not for Trump; but for our country.

The decision likely pushed by CJCS Gen. Mark A. Milley, the one who complained that he had been "set up" to walk with the Trumps and White House officisla to little St. John's Episcopal Church after the rioters tried to burn it down. He's the one who resembles Leonid Breshnev.

President Trump loves the military, but the military doesn't love him back. Is that what they want us to believe? It's okay to cancel inaugural events for basement without negative commentary, though. How soon they think we forget. President Trump received wild cheers from cadets not much more than a month ago. There must be some psyops going on here; they want US to believe the military is on their side.

This is why those who criticize elected leaders on wanting "endless wars" only understand less than half the problem. The flags have always been given a pass for their malfeasance and incompetence. Having been there I can truthfully say it would make you sick. In fact, when it comes to losing and then pretending otherwise, they make the careerists of VN look like pikers in comparison.

Despite a level of condemnation by the media that dwarfs anything to which Nixon, Clinton, Hoover or Grant were subjected, Donald Trump ranks as one of our great presidents.As Richard Nixon once said, “history is written by liberals,” so don’t count on any objectivity. But we, Trump’s supporters, need to keep the memory of his record in mind so we can unpack it for the next election.Here’s my take on what he did: He defied almost every vested interest group in the country — and in the world — to achieve his ends. And in 2020, those interests took their revenge.He began by defying the almost-royal power of the economic establishment

Nothing would make them happier than to see Republicans tearing each other apart in a fight over President Trump and the future of the GOP. However, this will not happen. It is a sign of how self-delusional the anti-Trump forces are that they could look at the House of Representatives vote on impeaching President Trump (for the second time) and convince themselves this is the harbinger of a Republican civil war. The House voted 232-197 Wednesday to impeach the president. Every
