President Trump should have fired Milley when he apologized for standing with him in opposition to the senseless violence at St. John's Church. I suppose that squishy – dare I say back stabbing – Pence is responsible for the appointment of the oh-so-enlighted General Raymond to head the Space Force. The left always has plans prepared ten steps ahead, each one worse than the last. They believe that they have every future election sown up because the election system as it is must be "protected" as part of the "critical infrastructure". And we thought that England slept.
Happy Fourth of July, Patriots! 🇺🇸 🎉🎉🗽 After all that has happened this past year, my appreciation of this important day is more informed and impassioned. God continue to bless America!

I truly enjoyed President Trump's rally last evening although it's so difficult to realize that he's not in office. Those who conceived and brought about that absurd theft must be brought to justice if we are to survive. One of them is General Mark Milley. Michael Yon nails it in this article which I highly recommend.

Identifying Lt. Colonel Matthew Lohmeier’s real sin By Drew Allen American Thinker May 19, 2021 Lt. Colonel Matthew Lohmeier, who commanded the 11th Space Warning Squadron at Buckley Air Force Base in Colorado, was recently relieved of command. Why? The Communist News Network, or CNN, reports that a Defense Department official told them that “Lt. Gen. Stephen Whiting, Space Operations Command commander, relieved Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier of command…due to loss of trust and confidence in his ability to lead.” What did the lieutenant colonel do to betray trust and confidence? Did Lohmeier sleep with a Chinese spy, making him a National Security threat? That would certainly result in a loss of trust and confidence in his ability to lead. No, but Democrat Congress-pronoun Eric Swalwell did. Swalwell was rewarded with an appointment to the House Intelligence Committee following revelations that he was compromised by a sexual relationship with a known Chinese spy. Did Lohmeier receive questionable payments from shady business dealings with the Communist Chinese? Was he compromised by financial ties to China? That would certainly be suspicious and result in a loss of trust and confidence in his ability to lead. No, but Joe Biden and Hunter, his immoral, useless, criminal embarrassment of a son, did. Joe Biden is unpopularly believed to be the “President.” Did Lohmeier encourage rioting and mob rule? That too would result in an erosion of trust and confidence in his ability to lead. No, he didn’t do that either. But Congress-pronoun Maxine Waters did when she called on protestors to “stay in the streets” and “demand justice” during the Derek Chauvin trial. Maxine Waters is still in Congress. How about “ratting out Israeli covert operations in Syria directly to the Iranian foreign minister.” Nope. That was John Kerry when he was Secretary of State. Lohmeier wasn’t in bed with the communist Chinese — literally or figuratively. Nor did he encourage violence or spill an ally’s secrets to a shared foreign enemy. Lohmeier’s crime was much worse. Lohmeier went on a conservative podcast called “Information Operation” to promote his self-published book, Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military. In the interview, Lohmeier discussed the impact of “a neo-Marxist agenda at the ground level within our armed forces.” He condemned Critical Race Theory, explained its Marxist roots, alerted the American public to its proliferation within the American military, and warned that this agenda “will divide us; it will not unify us.” In other words, Lohmeier told the truth. This is verboten — illegal in our post-constitutional America. Lohmeier’s words were reminiscent of the words and warnings of two great Americans -- George Washington and Abraham Lincoln; in other words, the words of an enlightened patriot and statesman. Washington advised in his Farewell Address that, “in proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened.” Lohmeier sought to enlighten the American public and was punished for it. Enlightenment is verboten. Abraham Lincoln warned that “if destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.” Lohmeier presciently gave the same warning when he said, “There’s nothing more -- personal view -- that Xi Jinping would like to see more than to win a war against the United States without shedding blood…. Xi Jinping would love for nothing more to watch us rot like this from the inside.” We are indeed rotting from the inside and the Marxist Democrat party is to blame. Whether it’s the incentivized invasion at our southern border, the proliferation of mob rule by anti-American Americans, profligate spending resulting in inflation and government dependency, or the introduction of anti-American Critical Race Theory within our schools and military, the Democrat party is intentionally dividing and destroying America. “We face our greatest threat right here at home at the moment,” Lohmeier pointed out. He’s right. The Democrat party is the most existential threat to America and Americans are duty bound to oppose them. But Lohmeier was relieved of duty for defending America. Patriotism and common sense are both verboten. In fact, being an American is now forbidden. George Washington said, “The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism more than any appellation derived from local discriminations.” The Democrat party forbids pride, patriotism, and unity are. Shame, self-loathing, hatred, and division are now prerequisites to enjoying our unalienable Rights. A new dark age is upon us. The message from the Democrat party is clear — our Rights are no longer unalienable but come from them. The recent attack on Lohmeier is an attack on America and Americans. The leftists sent a clear message to get ‘woke’ or shut up — either to participate in the destruction of our Nation or be punished for defending it. Lohmeier isn’t the first American patriot the Democrat party attacked; only the most recent. His punishment is tantamount to the Democrat party declaring war on America. That isn’t hyperbole. Eric Swalwell, Joe Biden, Maxine Waters, Lt. Gen. Stephen Whiting, and the Democrat party are a disgrace to this nation -- not worthy of the title of American. We must all send our own message: We stand with Lt. Colonel Lohmeier. We must all be courageous and speak the truth. And we should buy Lohmeier’s book. I’m grateful for Lohmeier. Let’s make him rich. To hell with the Marxist Democrat party.

Narciso, The court system is defunct. President Trump did his best to restore it, but perhaps even two terms would not be enough to achieve that goal.

Btw if we thought chris miller was true blue well lets revise that Posted by: Narciso | May 12, 2021 at 12:40 PM Narciso, I missed the background on this although I don't doubt it. Do you have a reference?
Great article by VDH! I love this quote from his father: “Whoa, son, slow way down, and learn. Don’t talk when you can listen.”

John, Perhaps it's a bit of both. California has so many issues and people want leadership like we had in the days of Reagan, Dukmejian and Wilson. The population has also changed dramatically with the build up of Silicon Valley. They are now moving into the southern part of the state and gobbling up beach towns. Liberals in Santa Monica are furious.😬 There have been reports that I can't confirm that much of California went Red in 2020. If that's true, then perhaps with the right candidates the State could turn around. It's a long shot, I know. I don't see Jenner as that person, however.

Considering the california board of education is encouraging aztec blood rites well its not far off. Narciso, Are you kidding me?!!! I remember the impression that I had when we visited the ruins in Tulum. I think they were Mayan, but the concept is the same. We climbed those tiny steep stairs to the top of the temple where the enemies or losers in their game similar to Jai Lai met their end on this little altar. Outside that small room you could look over the cliffs to an absolutely gorgeous blue ocean. Such a contrast. Our society is reverting.

Davod and John, I agree that the California State Legislature is a disaster. In part, that's due to a lack of leadership in the opposition and changes in the population specifically in Northern California and Silicon Valley. Given the activities in this last election, I have to wonder how certain politicians were reelected. Even now we can't be certain that the recall election will produce the results that Californians hope for. What we need is real leadership like we haven’t seen for over 25 years. The California Republican party certainly isn't providing it.

Those are excellent reasons, Davod. I look forward to the day when censorship for political viewpoints is not allowed.

The problems in California are far more serious than "reopening". Jenner talks about reclaiming the California dream, but what exactly does that mean?

Not recommending the expansion of the Court. Just anticipating how bad, bad can be if Biden has his way. It would be like the Ninth Circuit on steroids.

The Supreme Court has outlived it's purpose. It is so politicised that it no longer even takes up issues/cases based on the views of a eunuch of a Chief Justice. These aren't unbiased judges. They're terrified lawyers who are value their prestigious lifetime positions more than the law or the concerns of Americans. Expanding their numbers will only magnify the problem. I doubt that the Founding Fathers anticipated the disaster that the Court has become. Just a thought.

Rush Limbaugh came along at the right time — just after Ronald Reagan and as the Bush-Clinton cabal began its run. He had over 30 years to inform America and define what is at stake. President Trump served for four remarkable years, and changed the country and the world beyond anything I could have hoped for. He won a resounding victory in 2020. Now they want him out of the picture? What mealy mouthed, brain fogged politician do they want to replace him with? Ted Cruz? Mike Pence? No one has the stature, knowledge, vision of America or respect of the American people that Donald Trump possesses. In the old day they had a saying: "you leave with the guy that brung you to the dance." Ronald Reagan was said to be too old and Donald Trump too brash. Trump is the guy that brought us prosperity and hope for the future. He reestablished America's place in the world, and worked to secure a prosperous future free of endless, needless wars for ALL citizens. Yes, he can be brash and is in his 70's, but I can't think of a single leader who could or should take his rightful place. I'm staying with the guy who brung me to the dance.
