Such pettiness. Such political pettiness because it was President Trump who pardoned him. Read Victor Davis Hanson’s essay, just posted, on our so-called “elite” top brass and what they have become. Going after Tucker Carlson. That feckless (former admiral - seriously?) John Kirby tells you what they are all about. He is their toady, the guy who goes out and does their communications dirty work, and has no shame.

It is interesting that the prior post asks the question "who is our Military's enemy?" The answer is the upper echelon of the Military who were installed during 8 years of the anti military Obama regime. Our military has been politicized.

The military is famous for being petty and vindictive. If they cant get you for whatever their reason is, they'll get you some other way way. Thats one of the reasons whistleblower protection laws are such a joke. They may not get you for blowing a whistle, but they will get you for something else, later. They have very long memories.

For those of you that are under the illusion that the Military is going to come in and right the wrong in the 2020 election, actions such as this are all you need to know it ain’t gonna happen.

If you have a DD214, you can get lost medals replaced. We had our Navy pilot's medals duplicated at his death. I wonder how much of this article is anti-military hype.

I received a military catalog with every medal, unit patches with much more from a surplus store I purchased military camping gear. I lost all my medals but could have purchased more but chose not to. Stolen valor people do it all the time. I have my DD-214 but didn't know you could get them replaced.

#5 That is why President Trump could not activate the insurrection act. He knew the military was against him. From colonel up, the military wants perennial wars. It is the only way they get a promotion and the troops be dammed. Add to that the military industrial complex that wants more multi million dollar contracts. War is a lucrative business. Trump wanted peace.

Pelosi is basically making the case that everyone on the planet is entitled to what the ancestors of many American citizens bled and died for.Pelosi made her claims as the Democrats prepared to vote through an amnesty for at least three million migrants.
