Are Retired French and
American Military Generals
Standing Up against Tyranny?

Original Article

Three weeks ago, over a thousand active and retired members of the French military (including twenty retired generals) signed their names to a letter warning President Macron that "multiculturalism," "racial war," and "fanatic partisans" are destroying French society and leading the country to "civil war." The blunt message caused a tizzy (snip) Now we have a letter in the United States from 124 retired generals and admirals warning Americans in a strikingly similar tone: "Our nation is in deep peril. We are in a fight for our survival as a Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding in 1776.

Retired military do not command troops. It would be much better to have active brass say the same thing.

They can stand up to tyranny all they want... It's the men that command the heavy equipment that would count. That is actually our only realistic hope to get our country back.

Of course they aren’t. Most flag officers have jobs in the defense sector and don’t want to upset their primary customer-the federal government. They know that by doing so they can easily be replaced as a fresh batch retires every year. A perfect example is former Marine Corps Commandant Chuck Krulak who was once a Republican but is now a major Biden - China suck up. Sold out his country for a few bucks.

The citizenry made the same decorations to the tune of chirping crickets in thir varied audiences - or worse expressions of bigotry and disdain. The generals are LATE to the game.

Our two countries now have the same problem, ignorant children in positions of leadership. Nobody learns from history any more, they just want to change it. In Joke Biden's case he was around when most of our history was being made and he still doesn't catch on.

Most civilians don't understand that Generals and Admirals (in the U.S.) still have a lot of power over the military. They may be ''retired'' but they stay involved in military matters and have a great deal of influence. Unlike a retiring civilian, they don't take the watch and go away.

This is the WWIII we have all feared. Just as WWII was an extension of WW I, so it is now. We are dealing with the totalitarian Marxist ideology we allied with to save the world from a competing brand of totalitarianism, differing primarily in vocabulary pretending to differ in ideology. Only half of the job was complete in 1945 and we are suffering the consequences.

They are talking and writing about it. And they are right. The destroyers are wrecking both of the nations. And it is likely that the only way back will require force and bloodshed. I hope very much that a peaceful solution can be found, but it is seeming less likely all the time.

Desperate Don Lemon 'apologizes'

Is planting misleading innuendo about oneself a good tool to sell the services of an information provider? In what other product category does one openly debase the quality as a means of gathering attention? Tucker Carlson, whose viewership is more than 4 times that of Don Lemon’s, likes to characterize the CNN host as stupid. That label certainly applies to the publicity stunt trick Lemon pulled on Friday night: “CNN Tonight” anchor Don Lemon announced Friday that “this will be the last night” of the show he’s hosted since 2014 (snip) "I’ll be back on Monday with my newly named show Don Lemon Tonight. See you Monday at 10pE."

The biggest loser from the ongoing Hamas rocket barrage is not Israel. It’s Mahmoud Abbas. He was already losing before Hamas opened fire. He is now down and out. A totally irrelevant figure in the recent unrest. What was the spark that lit both the violence on the Arab street and the Hamas rockets? It was the decision of Mahmoud Abbas to, once again, call for a Palestinian election. What else is new? He has been doing it regularly ever since he lost the initial Palestinian election in 2006.

Is Kamala Harris in open rebellion against Joe Biden? Sure looks that way. Seven weeks after being named Biden's border czar, she's in some sort of defiance against the job Biden gave her and racking up failures. (snip) Why does it look like rebellion? Start with the fact that he fobbed that job off onto Kamala quite possibly as a sort of payback to President Obama, who during a previous border surge, dumped that job onto him. He knew how hard it was, and how lazy and incompetent she was.

Tou Thao, one of the four Minneapolis police officers charged in the “murder” of George Floyd, filed a motion on Wednesday accusing the State of Minnesota with “prosecutorial misconduct stemming from witness coercion.” If Thao’s accusations are true, and they certainly seem to be, the State has allowed this trial to drift irredeemably far into the brave new world of mob rule. The charges center on the testimony of Dr. Andrew Baker, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner. Baker conducted an autopsy on Floyd on May 26, 2020, the day after Floyd’s death. As yet unaware of the politics of the case, Baker reported his findings honestly

Here are some facts you may not have known. (snip) Floyd died of a heart attack about two and a half minutes before the ambulance arrived. Had the ambulance arrived three minutes earlier, would Officer Chauvin have been charged with murder? Had Mr. Floyd not battled officers, even while handcuffed and on the ground, would his heart attack have happened three minutes later than it did? Had Officer Chauvin not been distracted by the crowd who was taunting him, or by the two rookie officers who were observing, would Officer Chauvin have been more aware of how long he had been kneeling on Mr. Floyd

What was once old eventually becomes new, from fashion and hair length to music and economics. As they say, history may not repeat itself, but it often rhymes. Today we are seeing events that rhyme with events of a few decades ago. The rhyme is held together by the single commonality of which party is running the country. This week has the distinct smell of Democrats in charge. We have gas lines again, more cars waiting to fill up their gas tanks (snip) The rhyme these days is something older readers may remember, the “Misery Index”. One can hearken back to the days of President Jimmy Carter

Herman Melville’s novel Moby Dick is one the finest books ever written for many reasons, but the main theme is obsession. The captain of the whale ship Pequod is obsessed with hunting down and killing the white whale, the giant mammal that cost the captain his leg. Despite his having lost the last battle with the whale, Ahab is filled with a terrible resolve that is frustrated by his megalomania, his hubris and overconfidence. (snip) Doesn’t that character description sound exactly like Liz Cheney, just-ousted from her House GOP Caucus leadership slot? She is obsessed, overconfident and hubristic to the point of insanity.

In a bizarre “Complaint” filed against recently-elected Vermont School Board member Elizabeth Cady, two citizens allege Cady’s inquiries about the introduction of Critical Race Theory (CRT) constitute a “clear breach” of School Board Operations Policy. As in many states, this controversial ideology is seeping into Vermont’s curricula. Cady’s case is instructive of the coercive pressure exerted by CRT radicals against those who dare question the hasty implementation of this novel, race-based “theory.” Laura Taylor and Emily Franz allege that Cady “gave the impression that… she would represent special interests or partisan politics for personal gain.” No monetary “personal gain” is identified.

Joe Biden wants to present this image of himself as the congenial moderate who wants to unify everyone. As we’ve seen so far, his first few months have been anything but. It’s apparently not great for the folks working with him behind the scenes either. As we saw during the campaign, Biden lost his temper multiple times with voters and reporters, two groups you would think you’d be trying to court while you’re running, not yell or scream at. He called one girl a “dog-faced pony soldier,” insulted another man with “Look, fat,” even challenged a voter to “go outside” and told him that he was

Liz Cheney has claimed some Republicans voted against impeaching Donald Trump because they were 'afraid for their lives' as she admitted she regrets voting for him in the 2020 election and warned he poses an 'ongoing danger' to America.Cheney told CNN's Jake Tapper Friday that several GOP members of Congress told her they feared for their safety in the lead-up to February's vote to impeach Trump for inciting the January 6 Capitol riot. The Wyoming Representative said she believes some fell in line with the wider party because of these concerns and insisted more lawmakers were in favor of his impeachment 'than are willing to say so'.

Just after midnight on Friday morning, Israel announced that "air and ground forces from the IDF are now attacking in Gaza. More details to follow." The military columnists in Israel understood that this meant the armored corps and artillery deployed near Gaza will attack, but the unclear notice led foreign reporters to report the beginning of a ground operation in Gaza. Now it has been clarified that the unclear announcement was a planned trick by the IDF to eliminate a large number of Hamas terrorists within a short time.

Rep. Liz Cheney’s ouster proved Republicans are a bigger threat than the 9/11 hijackers who killed thousands of Americans, according to a USA Today editorial.The removal of Cheney from her leadership position suggests that the GOP has endorsed election fraud conspiracy theories, USA Today editor David Mastio wrote in a Thursday editorial. Endorsing such conspiracy theories, which allege that President Joe Biden didn’t actually win the election, poses a bigger threat to the U.S. than 9/11 hijackers ever did, he said.“The fact that the majority of Republicans believe our election was stolen is a sure sign that more violence is to come,”

Florida might as well be known as the sixth borough.New data from the Sunshine State’s Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles offers the latest glimpse of just how many New Yorkers fled south during the COVID-19 pandemic. At least 33,565 New Yorkers exchanged their NY drivers licenses for Florida credentials between September 2020 and March 2021.That’s a 32% increase from the same period the prior year, when 25,370 New York driver’s licenses were traded for Florida ones.Florida officials said a major cause of migration was parents looking to get their kids back in full-time, in-person school.
