That bogus news story about Trump ‘hitting peaceful protesters with rubber bullets for a photo op’ sure tore the masks off of some supposed friends. They lashed out… and are paying a price for it.
When ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis was brought in to Trump’s inner circle, most of us were thrilled at the news. It was good that we had someone willing to kick ass and take names, such a refreshing change after years of ‘leading from behind.
For whatever reason, he wasn’t a good fit and didn’t last. Under normal circumstances, that would be the last you would hear from a General who had served in the White House. Today’s politics are anything BUT ‘normal circumstances’.
Mattis has chosen the moment of a national crisis (or latest in a series of 2020 crises) to undermine Presidential Authority… in the guise of ‘National Unity’.
Trump replied by posting a brief but scathing letter written by top Lawyer and Marine John Dowd. It read:
I slept on your statement and woke up appalled and upset. You lost me. Never dreamed you would let a bunch of hack politicians use your good name and reputation-earned with the blood and guts of young Marines. You did what you said you would – engage in this discourse.
Marines keep their word.
The phony protesters near Lafayette park were not peaceful and are not real. They are terrorists using idle hate filled students to burn and destroy. They were abusing and disrespecting the police when the police were preparing the area for 1900 curfew. Jim, this is the new nihilism. See Dan Henninger in WSJ today.
Marines support the police in harms’s way.
Did you forget that President Bush used active duty Marines to quell the riots in LA? President Trump has countless cities and some snowflake governors and mayors wetting themselves in the use of force to protect innocent lives and property. The AG of Massachusetts thins burning property is good protest. Three more policemen were stabbed and shot in NYC last night.
Think about it. Should he be upset about the obvious failure of leadership? Where are you Jim?
Marines go to the fight.
No one divided this country more than Obama. He abandoned our black brothers and sisters. He gave guns to the cartels. He apologized for our precious sacrifice and generosity overseas.
You remember. He fired you.
President Trump has done more to help our minority brothers and sisters in three years than anyone in the last fifty. Ask the black pastors. Ask the leaders of the black colleges and universities. He got them funded. Ask them about the prison reform which ended the draconian sentences imposed on young black men by the laws enacted by Biden and his hacks.
You need to bone up on your homework and stop listening to Uncle Leon.
I understand, you had to stick to the assigned narrative which did not include three years of corrupt investigations and evidence to destroy this President, his office, and his lawful free election. Nancy has no tolerance for dissent in the ranks — including those with stars.
You said nothing of the ugly hate filled, disgraceful comments of Pelosi, Schumer, Perez, and other Democrat hacks defaming the President and his office. You said nothing of the unlawful sanctuary cities and the unlawful release of hoodlums. You said nothing of the resistance movement to paralyze our courts and our government operations. You said nothing of the obstructio and subversion of our immigration laws. You said nothing of MS-13 killers and the drug cartels who own huge sections of our major cities. Jim, do you think that hateful rhetoric and those corrupt actions were inspiring and unifying? Do you think the DI’s at Parris Island would find such behavior as unifying?
Maybe, your problem is a lot deeper. Perhaps you ought to explain how and why you (and Johan Allen), as CG Central Command, did not engge and take out Iranian Major General Solemani who roamed the middle East and wreaked havoc and death of our American boys with his infamous IEDs?
Why did it take President Trump to have the instincts and balls to take him out (of course over the objection of the geniuses in the Pentagon)?
Looks like the Persian mullahs were a one horse sleigh and Trump nailed the horse … forever. It has been quiet ever since. Perhaps, you anger is borne of embarrassment for your own failure as leader of the Central Command. Did you applaud when the President recognized the central problem in the middle east? Did you applaud the President when he wanted to save American lives by bringing them home in one piece?

And if Trump’s hitting back at a rogue General, do you really think he’s scared of a couple of rogue politicians and bureaucrats?
Buckle up folks, 2020’s shaping up to be a free-for-all.
