“He’s basically taking Article Two of the Constitution under his own wing and did not do proper service to the President of the United States,” Gen. Kellogg said.

From Fox News:

Former Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, who led the Pentagon from the period after the 2020 election through Inauguration Day, said that he “did not and would not ever authorize” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley to have “secret” calls with his Chinese counterpart, describing the allegations as a “disgraceful and unprecedented act of insubordination,” and calling on him to resign “immediately.”

In a statement to Fox News, Miller said that the United States Armed Forces, from its inception, has “operated under the inviolable principle of civilian control of the military.”

“The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is the highest-ranking military officer whose sole role is providing military-specific advice to the president, and by law is prohibited from exercising executive authority to command forces,” Miller said. “The chain of command runs from the President to the Secretary of Defense, not through the Chairman.” MORE

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley released a statement through a spokesman that confirmed the reporting in the new book Peril by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa that stated Milley had two conversations with his counterpart in the Chinese military that undermined President Trump and also a meeting Milley had with military leaders to insert himself into the nuclear launch command to subvert Trump’s authority as commander-in-chief after January 6th. MORE

Multiple news sources (including the mainstream media) are reporting that JCS Chairman General Mark Milley took President Trump out of the chain-of-command.

The reports originated from the book “Peril” written by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.

In the days after January 6, 2020 Gen. Milley held a top-secret meeting with senior military officials. He ordered his staff to ignore all orders except his .. meanwhile held secret talks with China and House Speaker Pelosi.

“No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I’m part of that procedure,” Milley ordered. The General then demanded each person in the room verbally confirm they would only follow him.

According to the Washington Post, Milley made a secret phone call to China stating he would give them advanced notice if the US was going to attack. MORE

Joe Biden, Democrats Think They Rule Over U.S.

 -- Government agencies mandating vaccines violates Florida law

Cities, Counties That Require Employees to Get Vaxxed will Be Fined $5,000 Per Infraction

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Monday fought back against Joe Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandates. DeSantis announced cities and counties that force employees to get vaccinated will be fined $5,000 per infraction.

“We are here today to make it very clear that we are going to stand for the men and women who are serving. We are going to protect Florida jobs,” DeSantis said during the news conference. “We are not gonna let people be fired because of a vaccine mandate.” 

DeSantis also spoke about natural immunity and how it offers more protection against Covid variants, citing the study out of Israel. MORE

During his most recent detestable address, Joe Biden said, “If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic, I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way.”

Clearly, he was targeting Governor DeSantis, who was asked about the threat ..

On Sept. 10 DeSantis’ legal team won a victory in appeals court.

One day after a state judge ruled against a ban on school mask policies, a Florida court has reinstated the stay, upholding Gov. Ron DeSantis’ ban preventing rules requiring face coverings from being implemented in schools across the state. MORE

9.11

"I grew up with you, and you are New York's finest."

President Trump stopped at police and fire stations in honor of first-responders’ heroic effort 20 years ago rescuing victims of the terror attack on the World Trade Center.

"It’s a sad day. It’s a very sad day for a lot of reasons, and we just added to that reason last week. It  should never have happened. We’re going to have to live with that for a period of time."

***********

The stirring response of Americans everywhere to the 9/11 terror attacks is a reminder of what the country used to be .. and can be again.

The city’s firefighters rushed headlong into those burning buildings388 of them gave up their lives in doing so. As terrible as their loss was, we must never forget how successful the rescuers actually were. Nearly 30,000 people escaped before the towers fell. 
.
Of their valor and sacrifice, Victor Davis Hanson wrote
In the tradition of all great American armies in battle, officers—47 lieutenants, 20 captains, and 21 chiefs—died alongside the rank and file, heroic death requiring no prerequisite of class or color. Indeed, the magnitude of the terrorist-inflicted disaster rivaled that of a fierce battle, where the enemy overruns and annihilates an entire military unit—paramedics, a fire marshal, even the fire department's chaplain were engulfed.
Thousands of mourners packed churches as the bodies were laid to rest in one transfixing funeral after another. Impromptu memorials to these heroes sprang up around New York, featuring photos of the dead, flowers, messages, and always—American flags.

Seen from today’s perspective, the months and years after 9/11 seem to belong more to an old America than a new one. The question is whether that America of heroic cops and patriotic songs, of ordinary Americans rolling up their sleeves, is gone forever or poised for a comeback. 

Is the old America really still out there, waiting to come out of hiding? If so, then this 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks—evoking, as it will, memories of how New Yorkers and their countrymen responded—would be a good time to reemerge. MORE

Endorsement of Joe Kent

Joe Kent is a retired Green Beret and Gold Star husband running against RINO and incompetent Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler in the 3rd District of the State of Washington. Joe served his country proudly for many years and understands the tremendous cost of America's wars in the Middle East, and elsewhere. In Congress, Joe will be a warrior for the America First agenda, unlike Jaime Herrera Beutler who voted, despite the facts, against the Republican Party and for the Democrats' Impeachment Scam.

Joe Kent is strong on Crime and the Border, loves our Military and our Vets, and will protect our Second Amendment, which is under siege. I met Joe at Dover Air Force Base on the evening that his wife was being brought back from the Middle East, where she had been killed in combat. It was a very sad moment in Joe’s life, but I was incredibly impressed with him and told him that he should someday run for office—we need his voice and leadership in Washington, D.C. Now he is running, and Joe Kent has my Complete and Total Endorsement!

Sean Parnell is running for the United States Senate to serve the Great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Sean bravely fought for our Country as a Captain in the U.S. Army and was awarded two Bronze Stars (one for valor) and the Purple Heart. Unlike our current administration, he never left anyone behind.

Sean is a great candidate, who got robbed in his congressional run in the Crime of the Century—the 2020 Presidential Election Scam. He will make Pennsylvania very proud and will fight for Election Integrity, Strong Borders, our Second Amendment, Energy Jobs, and so much more. Sean Parnell will always put America First. He has my Complete and Total Endorsement!

"The miracle here is that the faster Florida grows, the redder it gets"

POLITICOreportsthat “Florida has gained nearly 3 million people since the last redistricting process a decade ago,” and that expansion has “set the stage for a remaking of its political lines headed into a 2022 election likely to determine control of the U.S. House.”

The paper’s Gary Fineout and Matt Dixon remind readers that redistricting “will be controlled by Republicans, who already hold 16 of the state’s 27 congressional districts.” Democrats worry that “the new maps will only further banish them in Florida’s political desert.”

Florida will gain a 28th seat in the next Congress, not to mention a 30th Electoral College vote in the 2024 presidential election. That nicely matches the losses suffered by New York State, and ironically enough, New Yorkers fled their own COVID lockdowns for Florida.

It isn’t due to redistricting dirty tricks in Florida, either, even though you can expect Dems to scream bloody murder about them anyway. Governor Ron DeSantis revealed this spring that an “overwhelming” number of new residents are registering R instead of D.

AsDeSantis told Sean Hannityat the time:

The lockdowns turned them into Republicans because they say ‘I cannot fathom,’ people say, ‘I was a Democrat because of education, and I’m in California and they’re locking my kids out of school. I come to Florida, they’re in school, people are free, people are happy.’ So I think this whole process has caused some people to reevaluate some of their prior commitments. (More)

The caning of Sen. Charles Sumner

(politics is not a pillow fight)

The sudden dip in Joe Biden’s poll numbers in the wake of his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan + the utter abandon with which the Democrat Congress is throwing away trillions of dollars on infrastructure and relief programs (which are aimed at rewarding Democratic constituencies) would suggest that Biden’s party is headed for a fall. But other factors may be at play here:

First, the Democrats intend to exercise fully whatever power they can grab. That’s because Democrats view politics as more than a parlor game. The Democrats have well-coordinated plans to take over the government permanently and run it as a one-party state. H.R. 1 and H.R. 4 (bills intended to federalize elections), statehood for the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, maintaining an open border with Mexico, and providing $107 billion for legalizing the status of illegal residents as part of the latest Democratic spending bill are not random acts of kindness.
.
Second, and even more significantly, the Democrats have at their disposal a vast array of powerful allies, including the mainstream media, government surveillance agencies, educational institutions, and the permanent government administration. The electronic media will be able to shut off criticism of the Democrats. Since the power constellation that assisted the Democratic Party back then will still be around in 2022, the Republicans will still have to address the problem of hostile reporting. 
We'll win by having leaders who will fight for U.S.

August 24: Biden takes a knee - photo-op with WNBA Champions (LINK)

Later on Aug. 24: Joe Biden finally gave his big Afghanistan presser this afternoon. What then transpired was one of the most insulting, tone-deaf spectacles I’ve ever seen from a president. 

He continues to act as if everything is going well, reciting his talking points. In fact, much of today’s speech was lifted from the speech he gave a week ago. He blamed Trump and he insisted that our allies were absolutely fine with everything occurring.

His eyes were bloodshot and glazed over. His presentation was cold. Upon finishing his teleprompter reading, he simply stumbled out, taking no questions, clearly unable to physically and mentally do so. 

But what I took the most from this presser is this: Biden is sick. (LINK)

DeSantis promotes lifesaving COVID-19 treatment - Associated Press tries to smear him*

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is Following The Exact COVID Protocol Recommended By U.K. Senior Vaccinologist Sir Andrew Pollard - The Last Refuge

*SEE: AP HIT PIECE ON DESANTIS PROMOTION OF REGENERON TREATMENT FOR COVID

Ron Fires Back At AP

A series of tweets from the governor’s press secretary Christina Pushaw criticizing the story (Twitter then suspended her account) led the AP to send a letter to DeSantis’ office accusing her of a “direct effort to activate an online mob to attack” their reporter, as well as calling on him to “eliminate this attack strategy from your press office.”

“I assumed your letter was to notify me that you were issuing a retraction of the smear piece you published last week,” DeSantis began in his Monday letter responding to the AP. “Instead, you had the temerity to complain about the deserved blowback that your botched and discredited attempt to concoct a political narrative has received. This ploy will not work to divert attention from the fact that the Associated Press published a false narrative that will lead some to decline effective treatment for COVID infections.”

“That the AP has received vigorous pushback is something that should be expected given the brazenness of your political attack and the fact that your false narrative will cost lives. You cannot recklessly smear your political opponents and then expect to be immune from criticism.” (MORE)

uh .. Fake News again

The AP's story headline, "DeSantis top donor invests in COVID drug governor promotes," implied he was promoting Regeneron's COVID antibody treatment because a Chicago-based hedge fund that donated to a pro-DeSantis political committee also owns shares of the company.

The AP acknowledged in the story that it's "not unusual for hedge funds to have a wide range of investments" and admitted that medical experts agree with DeSantis on the effectiveness of Regeneron, but published the story with the damaging framework anyway.

"You can tell that the 2024 election season is in full swing when the major media try to nuke top GOP candidates. It's almost a badge of honor when the press piles up hit job after hit job against you," Media Research vice president Dan Gainor told Fox News. (MORE)

"I spent enough years in journalism to still recall when the Associated Press meant a level of professionalism. That's no longer true. This is the kind of journalism they are associated with. They should be embarrassed."

President Trump Rally in Alabama - Saturday Aug. 21

 “Biden’s botched exit from Afghanistan is the most astonishing display of gross incompetence by a nation’s leader perhaps at any time that anyone has ever seen. Name another situation like this. Vietnam looks like a masterclass in strategy compared to Joe Biden’s catastrophe. It did not have to happen that way, this is not a withdrawal, this was a total surrender."

“This is a disgraceful thing, the most embarrassing thing that we’ve ever seen in this country.The nations of the world, both friend and foe, are looking at us and saying, ‘what the hell happened so quickly to the United States of America."

President Trump campaigned on a commitment to bring troops home from the two-decade war in Afghanistan. He signed a peace deal with the Taliban in February of 2020 and withdrew thousands of troops from the country, though stopped short of a full withdrawal as the Taliban violated several terms of the agreement. “We had a conditions based agreement, and they didn’t meet the first two conditions, and we hit them hard, and then they, and then they had a couple of other conditions that they were ready to meet."

Joe Biden Directs Secretary of Education To Use ‘Legal Actions’ Against Governors Who Support Parental Rights re: Masking of Kids

Aug. 18, 2021: Joe Biden addressed the nation on the topic of the coronavirus on Wednesday, going a step further in his battle against specific Republican governors who have pushed back against mask mandates in schools. (Link)

“For those who aren’t eligible for the vaccine yet — children under the age of 12 — masks are the best available protection for them and the adults around them. That’s why we need to make sure children are wearing masks in school.”

"Some politicians are trying to turn public safety measures — that is, children wearing masks in school — into political disputes for their own political gain. Some are even trying to take power away from local educators by banning masks in school."

 “Today, I am directing the Secretary of Education to take additional steps to protect our children. This includes using all of his oversight authorities and legal actions, if appropriate, against governors who are trying to block and intimidate local school officials and educators.”
