Trump now says he probably caught Covid-19 from somebody in the Gold Star families, from "having" to interact with the people who had lost a Military Family Member. CLASSY!

He also blindsided the Pentagon and Military Planners by claiming all troops would be out of Afghanistan by the end of this year! GOOD LUCK NEGOTIATING PEACE TERMS WITH THE TALIBAN NOW BOYS ANND GIRLS!

And yet his acolytes and worshippers keep claiming he hasn't weakened our Military and that he respects them. GUTLESS COWARD!

Oh, and if you disagree, post your MOS as well.

Lying Democrat trolls.

Trump said he loved our soldiers and gold star families.

Biden / Obama cut aid to Veteran's Hospitals and allowed them to deteriorate.

President Trump has increased funding for Veterans Hospitals and removed the bureaucrats that disrespected our wounded veterans.

Marxist Democrats and BLM kneel and disrespect the national anthem and our flag giving support to our Communist enemies.

Hillary Clinton, Biden, James Comey and Obama should all be thrown in prison for wire-tapping President Trump and his family under the false pretenses of the "Russian Collusion Conspiracy" concocted by the Clinton campaign. Treason.

President Trump is bringing our boys home from Iraq and Afghanistan after Biden / Clinton / and Obama left our troops hanging for 8 years with no clear direction regarding their objective.

Our troops love President Trump and hate the commie Marxist Democrats.

Democrat Party has become a party of haters; hating the Constitution, hating the American National Anthem, hating the American Flag, hating law enforcement, hating our military, and hating working class Americans as these Marxist elitists think they are superior with their Communist ideology.

Joe Biden is a sell-out to American workers of all professions with NAFTA and favorable trade deals on China's behalf in return for bribes laundered through Hunter Biden's firm.

Biden has been in political office for 47 years spanning the migration of high-paying American jobs to China, Mexico and India in exchange for slave labor wages for the elite.

I saw Trump in a news conference telling people to liberate Michigan against the governor. Now 13 Trump supporters tried to kidnap her and overthrow the state and 3 other states too?

Execute those 13 traitors tomorrow. If their families complain, hang them the next day. They are violating the CONSTITUTION!

@6:35, MOS 13 Foxtrot the "pussy-assed REMF Bitch" here.

In late October & early November of '68 I was with the 15th cranking out deflections and quadrants for M110s in Quan Tin as support for the 1st Cav during Op. WHEELER WALLOWA. Then in Jan. '69 I got to push some steel into the bushes during Op. MACARTHUR supporting II Corps.

RA, not NG and believe me I would rather have been spending weekends at home, even if my wife wouldn't let me have a Gay Boyfriend.

Sounds like I threw some steel fairly close to where you were, and at about the same time you were there, sorry I missed you.

But at least neither of us had the dreaded Bone Spurs.

5:48 hey good buddy you may want to check your political history, remember the dixicrates, the southern racists that joined the Republican party in mass in 1968.

The States' Rights Democratic Party dissolved after the 1948 election, as Truman, the Democratic National Committee, and the New Deal Southern Democrats acted to ensure that the Dixiecrat movement would not return in the 1952 presidential election. Some Southern diehards, such as Leander Perez of Louisiana, attempted to keep it in existence in their districts.[16] Former Dixiecrats received some backlash at the 1952 Democratic National Convention, but all Southern delegations were seated after agreeing to a party loyalty pledge.[17] Moderate Alabama Senator John Sparkman was selected as the Democratic vice presidential nominee in 1952, helping to boost party loyalty in the South.[17]

Regardless of the power struggle within the Democratic Party concerning segregation policy, the South remained a strongly Democratic voting bloc for local, state, and federal Congressional elections, but increasingly not in presidential elections. Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower won several Southern states in the 1952 and 1956 presidential elections. In the 1956 election, former Commissioner of Internal Revenue T. Coleman Andrews received just under 0.2 percent of the popular vote running as the candidate of the States' Rights Party.[18] In the 1960 presidential election, Republican Richard Nixon won several Southern states, and Senator Harry F. Byrd of Virginia received the votes of several unpledged electors from Alabama and Mississippi. In the 1964 presidential election, Republican Barry Goldwater won all four states that Thurmond had carried in 1948. In the 1968 presidential election, Republican Richard Nixon or third party candidate George Wallace won every former Confederate state except Texas

So funny Whitmer is accusing Trump of trying to kidnap her through a militia. Unbelievable.
BTW has Cleaver burned down anymore houses of people who speak out against him?

@8:50 My primary MOS was 13F Field Artillery Fire Control and Direction.
I also carried 13B FA Crewman (of course) and 13S FA Survey, but mostly spent my time pointing the damned things in the direction they were supposed to be firing.

I will admit your MOS is much more "macho" than mine, but a 203 lb. hunk of steel carrying 73 lbs. of TNT can mess up the morning for a few of our "little brown brothers", and I tried to do my bit.

Now, go F**k yourself Punk! Assume a PLF position and roll left.
We both went, so why are you defending that gutless wonder?

Anonymous said...

Thanks 9:02 for reminding me that Segregationist and Democrat Party Political Candidate George Wallace was a Democrat Party leader as well.

Democrat George Wallace was a big racist.

Democrat Party is full of segregationists, racists, and Ku Klux Klanners.

Joe Biden was best buds with Robert Byrd who was Indiana's Democrat Senator and Grand Cyclops of the Indiana Ku Klux Klan.

Joe Biden, the racist and friend of the Ku Klux Klan, voting against desegregation because he didn't want his kids attending a "racial jungle" as Biden described the black schools.

I voted for Obama, but after watching the Democratic Party harass and try to take out a duly-elected president and his staff during the last four years with false charges and lies, they are now the most dishonest and despicable party in American history. Adam Schiff is the poster child of their dishonesty, saying he had direct evidence of Trump-Russian collusion for years, yet he knew he had nothing. The Democraps are the party of open borders, weak police and military, not holding criminals accountable and letting them out of jail or post bond too easily, job and big city destruction, high taxes on our paychecks, aborting babies even after birth, and violent lawlessness. No thank you!

@9:38, a bit of a problem with your posts - the 11B1Y MOS designation for Pathfinders didn't exist until 1982, at the time you are claiming the suffix was "Mike", the same as for Jumpmasters.

You might want to do your internet searching a bit more carefully when you are putting your troll personas together.

5:28 here. No MOS. Just a civilian, but in our country, I have as much right to an opinion as anyone.

However, the "fake news" wasn't reported by me. The source reporting that Trump said people that served and sacrificed are losers and suckers is a US Marine Corp general. His son died while serving. He heard the quotes when Trump skipped WWI ceremonies in France because he didn't want to get his hair wet and again later when Trump dissed his son at Arlington.

Remember, Trump very publicly said POWs aren't war heroes. He said he would disown his son if he enlisted. He now claims Gold Star families gave him the China virus. Trump hates the military.

If you believe Trump's fake patriotism, maybe Trump is right. You just might be a loser and a sucker.

22 Retired 4-Stars and 500 NatSec Leaders said...

Vote for Biden.

22 Retired 4-Stars Join Nearly 500 NatSec Leaders in Letter Endorsing Joe Biden

We are former public servants who have devoted our careers, and in many cases risked our lives, for the United States. We are generals, admirals, senior noncommissioned officers, ambassadors, and senior civilian national security leaders. We are Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. We love our country. Unfortunately, we also fear for it. The COVID-19 pandemic has proven America needs principled, wise, and responsible leadership. America needs a President who understands, as President Harry S. Truman said, that “the buck stops here.”

We the undersigned endorse Joe Biden to be the next President of the United States. He is the leader our nation needs.

We believe that Joe Biden is, above all, a good man with a strong sense of right and wrong. He is guided by the principles that have long made America great: democracy is a hard-won right we must defend and support at home and abroad; America’s power and influence stem as much from her moral authority as it does from her economic and military power; America’s free press is invaluable, not an enemy of the people; those who sacrifice or give their lives in service of our nation deserve our respect and eternal gratitude; and America’s citizens benefit most when the United States engages with the world. Joe Biden will always put the nation’s needs before his own.
