Memorial Day 2023: Honoring America’s fallen heroes

May 29, 2023

“No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.”

– President Calvin Coolidge, August 2, 1923 – March 4, 1929

Graves of America’s military heroes can be accessed through Veterans Legacy Memorial website.

Memorial Day became a federal holiday in 1971, during the presidency of Richard Nixon, who rose to the rank of Commander in the U.S. Navy.


US Air Force Academy prioritizes race, gender instruction for cadets

March 27, 2023

We live in an increasingly hostile world as despotic China saber-rattles and war-mongering Russia invades Ukraine — prioritizing the starving and slaughter of civilians. Russia began its recent reign of terror by bombing maternity hospitals. 

Judicial Watch has evidence that there are other considerations which make wartime leaders, surpassing those that have held us in superior stead throughout numerous generations. Leadership involves communicating with subordinates, so the USAFA now has a section in “español.” That foolishness is the least of the now trendy, leftist outreaches. The following report headlined, “Judicial Watch: Records Show Air Force Academy Focus on Anti-American Critical Race Theory Training of Cadets – Academy Head Ties Cadets to Racism and Social Injustice,” is shocking in its content but a must read for those who care about the United States, our military and not falling into the unacceptable, perilous political abyss of political correctness.

American Military leaders are often trained at the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA) outside of Denver; the Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland; and the Army Academy at West Point, NY., prestigious schools most often requiring a congressional nomination, in addition to superior grades and evidence of fitness, to be considered for admission. These have long been considered crucial leadership qualities. A full list of U.S. military academies and their acceptance rates can be viewed here.

Training officers is serious business. “Political Correctness,” including Critical Race Theory, Racism and Social Injustice, have no place in the arena of protecting the USA, in ever more treacherous times.

Whatever else you do today, read the Judicial Watch report. Knowledge is power.

An incomprehensible outrage infiltrates US Department of Defense

March 23, 2023

Today we take the unusual step of sending our readers directly to anther website. Ari Blaff, writing for National Review, headlines his column, DoD Medical Staff Call Puberty Blockers, Hormone Replacement, for Kids ‘Human Rights.’

This is not a suggestion, but absolutely necessary reading — especially, but not limited to, those who have been known to regard occasional reports as “too preposterous to believe.” The leaders of communist China and Russia, neither of whom is our ally, have been holding joint meetings for days. They keep their eyes on American weakness. This report certainly details our preposterous frailties.

The importance of this report cannot be overstated. Read it, and share it with friends and relatives. It is not political. It is harsh reality. 

Ukraine: Biden’s reckless proxy war

January 31, 2023

As the war in Ukraine escalates, with Russia sending more troops and munitions to the now ravaged nation — displacing civilians who survive to wander the frozen (average Jan. temperature in Kyiv is 27°F) wasteland with the clothes on their backs. Previously a major producer and world-wide exporter of wheat and corn, displaced Ukrainians are now wondering how they will provide sustenance for themselves and their families.

According to Reuters News, Russia warned the United States on Monday that the last remaining pillar of bilateral nuclear arms control could expire in 2026 without a replacement due to what it said were U.S. efforts to inflict “strategic defeat” on Moscow in Ukraine.

We are not authorities on Ukraine and its untenable situation, but we do read and watch the news. We also remain attuned to former President Donald Trump who recently posted this on his Truth Social Account.

The New York Post headlined a recent report, ‘Biden mislabels Ukraine as aggressor while announcing tanks to Kyiv.’

Dan Steinbock, who writes for The American Conservative authored, “The unwarranted Ukraine proxy war: A year later,” which is illuminating.

Biden, outed as incoherent, cognitively impaired, now sending troops to Haiti

October 16, 2022

Biden reportedly sending US troops to Haiti, the most impoverished country in the Western hemisphere, reeling from a cholera epidemic and shortage of potable water.

Victor Davis Hanson’s recent Townhall column, titled “An Epidemic of Cognitive Impairment?” was scheduled to be our sole gift to our readers today.

Then the New York Post report on Biden’s latest gambit, “Biden admin drafts resolution for rapid military deployment in Haiti” grabbed the headlines. According to the report, “It’s unclear how many US troops will be deployed.”

Takeaway? The less than lucid democrat Joe Biden is up for engaging in war with arsonist street gangs in Haiti. Thank the democrats you know, who bear the full responsibility for skewing the 2020 presidential election.

US Military falls victim to political correctness, crucial readiness lags

October 8, 2022

It’s imperative the US intensify military recruitment

Imprimis, the free monthly speech digest of Hillsdale College is dedicated to educating citizens and promoting civil and religious liberty by covering cultural, economic, political, and educational issues. The content of Imprimis is drawn from speeches delivered at Hillsdale College events. First published in 1972, Imprimis is one of the most widely circulated opinion publications in the nation with over 6.2 million readers. It recently published a shocking report, titled “The Rise of Wokeness in the Military,” adapted from a talk by Ret. Lt. Gen. Thomas Spoehr (bio included in link).

Fox News also covered the absurdity in “The Air Force Academy diversity training, instructing cadets to use words that ‘include all genders,’ and drop the terms, ‘mom and dad.”

As we approach Veterans Day, November 11, a day specifically set aside to honor our military veterans, this is a timely reminder of the need to keep our military at full capacity and readiness. Russia’s increasingly erratic Vladimir Putin is escalating his aggressions against Ukraine, provocatively detonating bombs. In this recent edition of the UK’s The Guardian newspaper, Putin was described as railing against a “satanic” west, in what was portrayed by observers as his most anti-western speech to date. He is growing ever more aggressive, warning, his threat to resort to nuclear weapons ‘not a bluff.’

When left-of-center NBC News headlines a recent report, “Every branch of the U.S. military is struggling to make its 2022 recruiting goals, officials say,” there is reason to be concerned.

Wokeness is not on the mind of tyrannical, aggressive dictators. It also will not keep us safe.   

Biden’s “Oops moment” not covered by leftist media

March 26, 2022

The UK’s Daily Mail reports on the White House’s rush to clean up after gaffe machine Joe Biden told U.S. paratroopers in Poland, “You’re going to see when you’re there — some of you have been there — you’re going to see women, young people, standing in the middle, in front of a damn tank, saying, “I’m not leaving,” Biden said those words to the 82nd Airborne Division. Biden’s peculiar mention of “when you’re there,” clearly suggests that the U.S. troops would be deployed across the Polish border into Ukraine.

 Administration officials wasted no time attempting to clarify Biden’s remark’s insisting there has been no change in policy. “The president has been clear we are not sending U.S. troops to Ukraine and there is no change in that position,” a White House spokesperson told Fox News on Friday. Biden has stated that troops would not be sent into Ukraine under any circumstances during despotic Russian Pres. Vladimir Putin’s unprovoked invasion. The overarching concern for Americans is the actual potential of escalating into World War III. Putin has been targeting defenseless civilians as he bombs hospitals, schools, a theater with a huge signs advising there were children inside and forcing hundreds of thousands to flee their homes. Food and water are scarce and Ukrainians are terrified.

Most telling of Biden’s disconnect with Americans is this new poll from left-leaning Grinnell College which reveals that fewer than 3 in 10 Americans believe the economy will get better one year from now and just 34 percent approve of Pres. Biden’s job in office.

In a little over a year of Biden’s bumbling attempt at being president, sanity appears to be making a comeback.

Lightweight is a heartbeat away from U.S. presidency

March 13, 2022

This past week VP Kamala Harris broke into her trademark convulsive laughter when she was asked by a reporter whether America will take in refugees from war-torn Ukraine. Russian Pres. Vladimir Putin has aggressively attacked the country, ordering the bombing of businesses, homes, schools, orphanages and even maternity and children’s hospitals. Since the Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine, over a million and a half Ukrainians have fled their homes with only the clothes on their backs, seeking shelter from the murderous Russian military.

The bizarre incident took place during a joint press conference with Harris and Polish President Andrzej Duda in Warsaw. Kamala Harris was sent on this trip to Poland to stand in for the equally dense Joe Biden.

Harris’ foolish actions in the face of tremendous human suffering caused Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s former press secretary to say it would be a “tragedy” if Harris ever became president.

This is the video of the clearly incompetent Harris laughing at the large scale human suffering.

Biden’s incompetence emboldens Russia’s Putin

March 5, 2022

The world is increasingly dangerous as war-mongering Russian President Vladimir Putin no longer fears reprisals from Donald Trump. Steamrolling a weak and unfocused Joe Biden and his leftist, politically correct administration — more focused on climate change and welcoming transsexuals into our military — have placed us in a precarious position. Bidenflation has reached monstrous proportions ravaging households across America and lessening the purchasing power of the dollar to the lowest level in memory. The current economic disaster follows the soaring Trump economy with employment at record high levels and the stock market booming.

Victor Davis Hanson provides his wisdom and insight in this column,“The Biden Inflation Octopus,” posted on Real Clear Politics. His conclusion is democrats “will suffer historic losses in the November midterms.”

Conservatives trust he‘s correct and are energized to elect Republicans, but since this is the beginning of March, by November the economic damage could be irreparable, worsening beyond rational expectations. With the spineless Biden administration in control, America’s diminishing stature on the world stage is on the brink of being terminal.

The disaster taking place in Ukraine is escalating. Invading Russian forces took control of Europe’s largest nuclear power plant early Friday morning after a firefight with Ukrainian troops caused a training building on the grounds to catch fire, prompting international alarm over the possibility that nuclear reactors might be damaged and release radioactive material.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) based in The Hague, Netherlands, has opened an investigation into war crimes after Russia’s Putin approved a “special military operation” in Ukraine on Feb. 24, including the targeting of civilians, as well as indiscriminate attacks on schools and hospitals.

On Wednesday, Joe Biden refused to refer to Russia’s actions as war crimes, saying, “It’s too early to say that.” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby on Friday also declined to answer the question, saying he would leave that determination to the International Criminal Court.

Both civilian and military casualties are rising. Fearing for their lives, over a million Ukrainians have fled their homeland this past week. When Putin initially began his attacks, incompetent Joe Biden mindlessly referred to the actions as a “minor incursion.”

Pogo, a cartoon opossum who laced political satire into his speechifying, was famous for saying, “We have met the enemy and he is us.” Seeing Red AZ modifies that to, “America’s incompetent enemy is sitting in the Oval Office.”

Ukraine calamity intensifies as Biden celebrates black history month

March 1, 2022

Dragnet was a police drama in the early years of television. Most of us remember it through its reruns. It featured a detective known as Sgt. Joe Friday, who became famous for a cut-to-the-chase, one liner used when questioning female witnesses at crime scenes: “Just the facts, ma’am.”

This statement comes to mind when it comes to coverage of Russian President Vladimir Putin‘s-led unprovoked war of aggression against neighboring Ukraine. Coverage by the Trump-despising, Hillary-endorsing, Biden-supporting rapidly declining Arizona Republic newspaper has been expectedly light, until the facts proved too compelling to ignore. Today’s edition banner, bold-faced, all caps headline is “CLOSING IN ON THE CAPITAL.”

Vladimir Putin’s bloody, full-scale military invasion of Ukraine stands as another humiliating defeat for Joe Biden. When Putin initially began his ruthless moves, U.S. Commander-in-Chief Biden blandly referred to the aggression a “minor incursion.”

The most recent news from trusted purveyors of fact tell a different story. On Monday, February 28, the New York Post led with this exchange between disconnected Joe Biden and a reporter:

Biden contended that Americans should not fear Russia’s invasion of Ukraine developing into a global nuclear war despite Moscow putting its nuclear forces on high alert. A reported half million Ukrainians and others living in the nation have fled as the threats intensified.

“Should Americans be worried about nuclear war?” the reporter asked Biden following a Black History Month event at the White House.

“No,” Biden replied.

Biden’s mouthpiece Jen Psaki followed up with “We think provocative rhetoric like this regarding nuclear weapons is dangerous, adds to the risk of miscalculation, should be avoided and [we] will not indulge in it.” Ignoring facts is the Biden administration’s approach.

Reuters news agency is attuned to the urgency of the dire situation. This morning responding to a barrage of Western sanctions over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said: “They are counting on forcing us to change our position. This is out of the question.”

The Biden administration is filled with political extremists selected on the basis of filling race and gender quotas. This international recklessness is the result. Putin never made such moves when conservative Donald Trump was in the Oval Office.
