A Conservative View

Praying that Donald Trump can save Americas freedoms!

Archive for the tag “freedom”


We all need to help Trump start and maintain the pumps.

Congresspersons have become nothing more than greedy power whores, thriving with the lavish gifts from the hoard of  lobbyist that did not even exist until after WWII. Although there are no numbers to evaluate I suspect that there are more lobbyist in Washington D.C. and the 50 State capitols than there are members in all of our military services. Money and other presents may not buy everyone but you can be certain if it is enough it will to buy a majority of votes.

It took a while longer but next they bowed to the unions and allowed our Federal Government employees to be protected by unions. When Congress allowed this monster to be created they really started the deficit alligator to join in on the downhill slide. If our Congress and Presidents can’t be fair to its employees they should resign. It would be interesting to see how the costs of government employees has increased in relationship to industrial workers

Another interesting comparison would be to see another cost breakdown. This would be the nonmilitary government employee cost to purchase and provide everything necessary to support the military today, versus what it costs in 1945 during a world war. Where did the thousands of Defense Department employees work during WWII when there was no Pentagon. Never forget all money needed for every Government Agency is provided by Congress.

Until Congress authorized the Department of Energy(DOE) all Government oversight and control of the Petroleum industry was part of the Department of the Interior (DOI). This happened while I was deeply involved with the energy industry. In fact I chaired a quasi Government/Industry Program for several years that was administered by the Minerals Management Service of the then (DOI) and was Policed/Audited by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. This program required in some cases a lot of wasted time and records. Another peculiar requirement was it only affected two kinds of safety valves out of the hundreds of other failure modes. The one thing even bothered me more was this requirement was only required on oil and gas wells in Federal Offshore waters. After the BP blowout my first thought was they should have required this control on blowout preventers.

The DOE now has 220,000 employees and I would bet my house that the (DOI) has as many or more employees than they had when the the two were separated. Only Congress could have stopped this but they will never understand the game played by Government employees. When you can’t get bigger in bad times then turn the lobbyist loose to create a new Agency. Study how the Department of Education became one of those boondoggles.

Congress makes its own rules, why?

Congress sets its own salaries, why?

Congress determines its own pensions, Why?

Congress determines its own ethics, Why?

Congress establishes its own budgets, Why?

Congress refuses to set term limits, Why?

Finally we elected a President who likely know many more Why’s than I do. Unfortunately Congress entices the media to keep him involved with defending his every decision that he will never have time to fix Congress. The only way Congress will ever get stopped from spending is for the people to stand behind our man. If the people stay divided the America I love so much will disappear.

Do you support open borders with useless control parameters? The Democrats do, why?

Do you support confiscating all weapons and ammo owned by citizens? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you support having to print all Government requirements in as many as 20+ languages, including ballots? The Democrats do, Why?  

Do you want to reinstate the hundreds of unnecessary Government regulations Trump had cancelled? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you want illegal aliens and prisoners to vote in our elections? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you want to keep the treaties that have caused our companies to move the millions of our workers jobs overseas? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you support the Sanctuary Cities and States that hide illegal aliens from deportation that violates Federal Laws? The Democrats do, Why?

Democrats, if you hate our country and our laws so much it would be easier to immigrate to Canada, Australia, England, Germany, France who have Socialism you so dearly desire. If you want to fight for something try immigrating to Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Yemen and help these people kill each other. Leave freedom loving Americans alone.

A bunch of us are happy to be free and we support our President to please don’t stop draining the swamp. We appreciate his vigor and reluctance to keep the pumps draining. Someday our Federal employees will have the same benefits that all of us have, including Congress. If they are elected to support the people they should have pay and benefits that we have. If they want to be equal to the leaders of industry then go to work and earn the benefits like we have to do.

All America needs are jobs and put welfare army back to work. They can replace the illegals that took their place as Americans were put on welfare. The biggest need is term limits and no Tenure for any elected or Obsessionally appointed Government Official.

I challenge anyone to prove me wrong.

“The Last Six Seconds”



Believe it or not if you have a device to connect you with the internet You can read about anything, especially American politics, and never read it all. By the time you think you have read every word there will be more to read than you had when you started.

I will share an old story I heard about fifty years ago.

“A business owner was convinced that his CPA was no longer capable. He invited three new potential accountants to come for an interview.

The first was invited in and was asked a simple question, how much is two and two. Without hesitation he answered “four”. He was excused.

The second one was invited in, asked the same question and provided the same answer, “four”. He was excused.

The third was invited in and asked the same question. Much to the owners surprise he answered  “What number do you want it to be? He was hired immediately.

This story exactly describes our entire government and how it operates. If you take enough time you can get statistics to support any position or answer you are looking for. The amount of honesty, ethics and performance of everyone with power in Washington and the elected officials in every Democratic controlled State is questionable. I believe it might be just as bad in every State because politics controls every aspect of our lives today.

When the powerful can tell you what bathroom you can use you should know ethics have been discarded by one or a group of perverts. Politicians who scream about global warming are being paid to support anything questionable with power and money. Again statistics can find any answer you want if you selectively try long and hard enough.

Anyone who has watched our Federal Judges including the Supreme Court as long as I have and believes they render decisions that meet our Constitution and other laws need to visit a “shrink”. They get nominated and appointed for life by elected officials to support the political party in power. If you care, take time to ask why every political decision by the Supreme Court usually ends with a 5 to 4 decision. Occasionally like Roberts decision on Obamacare when his tie breaking vote smelled like a dead rat. Did he get paid, we will never know?     

To make my point I will share some statistics gathered from the Internet for January 24th. With all of the massive amount of money used to skew facts I question political honesty of these supposedly factual numbers. Most of the data presented is supposedly generated from calls to actual voters. There is no way to guarantee they are actual voters. I am 87 years old and I have never been contacted by one of these pooling companies.       

First look at the President’s performance.

President Trump Job Approval Harvard-Harris Approve 44, Disapprove 56
President Trump Job Approval Reuters/Ipsos Approve 37, Disapprove 59

After nearly every poll in America predicted that Hillary would be elected I have no confidence in anyone anymore. If 56% or 59% of our voters are anti-Trump, America is in deep dodo. We have this one chance to clean politics and the big money will decide this year’s elections just like they have until Trump beat the money powerful in 2016.

Now look at now look over Congress approval rating.

Congressional Job Approval Reuters/Ipsos Approve 18, Disapprove 72
Congressional Job Approval FOX News Approve 15, Disapprove 70

With the growth in the army of people who are required to support one Congressman. The 15% and 18% figures could be the individuals who must number in the thousands and their families and close friends. That is if any of the 535 have a friend? I have found no one who thinks Congress can do anything correct and if they make a decision no one agrees but them.

Look over the right or wrong direction we are headed.  

Direction of Country Reuters/Ipsos Right Direction 30, Wrong Track 58
Direction of Country Harvard-Harris Right Direction 35, Wrong Track 54

When I saw this result these polls reveal they must be rigged with the same people who the pollsters used to report that Hillary would win in a cake walk in 2016.

Real Americans are sick and tired of watching our government grow, create regulations, wreck entire industries like Coal and end up with a welfare army of Aliens, illegal Aliens and far too many Americans unemployed. Watching jobs leave for foreign countries by the millions and our factories boarded up has been miserable.

Fellow Americans we have a new leader in the Washington “Swamp”. He has rolled up his sleeves donned waders and is kicking ass to help Americans. He is fighting the Demoncrats, nearly alone, fighting the RINO’s like John McCain and Lindsey Graham who have tried to torpedo his Presidency along with Chuck “Slimey” Schumer, the Clinton Machine and Nancy, “Face lift Queen” Pelosi.

The primary enemy of the Conservatives and the people is the large networks and news networks including far too many liberals at Fox News like Juan Williams and Shepard Smith.

It is refreshing to see how many companies are bringing back jobs and parked profits from overseas and reopening facilities or building new ones to hire American workers. Drying up the welfare army and putting lifetime welfare leeches to work for their benefits like Roosevelt did in the 1930’s when I was a boy. Why are the Demoncrats pushing to increase the volume of illegals to put on welfare when Americans need the better jobs?

Stop listening or reading the rigged news being spewed from the media supporting the liberal movement to Socialize our Country. Socializing America is a step to remove freedoms millions of Americans have died to protect.

God bless Donald Trump who is our last chance to remain free.

You comments are appreciated in helping me know the subjects you would like to know more about.

My friend, Peter Forrest, sent me these questions and it seems more than interesting to ask your “Liberal Friends” to see if they can explain even one. I want to ask you to please share any answers you might receive as I don’t have even one Liberal” that will speak to me. Even my own liberal family members no longer speak to me. I promise to print any answers but I doubt I will get any feedback as Liberals” never have an answer to anything I ask them. They just shrug their shoulders and walk away. I have no idea who compiled these questions and if anyone knows, tell me so I can give them credits.

Since only 8 million people have ObamaCare, how will 24 million people die after it is repealed? Will 16 million people be randomly shot?

If Donald Trump deleted all of his emails, wiped his server with Bleachbit and destroyed all of his phones with a hammer, would the Mainstream Media suddenly lose all interest in the story and declare him innocent?

If women do the same job for less money, why do companies hire men to do the same job for more money?

If you rob a bank in a Sanctuary City, is it illegal or is it just an ‘Undocumented Withdrawal’?

Each ISIS attack now is a reaction to Trump policies, but all ISIS attacks during Obama’s term were due to Climate Change and a plea for jobs. Why?

After the London ‘Lone Wolf’ terrorist attack government officials have arrested at least eight other ‘Lone Wolves’ who had conspired with the original ‘Lone Wolf’ in planning the ‘Lone Wolf’ attack.  Even though all involved are Muslims, you can be assured, the ‘Lone Wolf’ attack has nothing at all to do with Islam, just like the other 1000 plus ‘Lone Wolf’ attacks by Muslims, are completely unassociated with Islam. Why?

We are scolded every day to stop calling “Freebies” ‘Entitlements’. Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC, ad nauseum are not entitlements. They are taxpayer-funded handouts, and should be called, What?

Social Security and Veterans Benefits are Entitlements because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients. Why does the Media keep listing them with other Freebies?

If Muslims want to run away from a Muslim country, does that mean they’re Islamophobic?

If Liberals don’t believe in biological gender then why did they march for women’s rights?

If Trump was involved with the Russians hacking the Presidential election. How did the Russians get Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC to steal the Primary from Bernie Sanders? How did Russia get Donna Brazile to leak debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of the debates?

Why is it that Democrats think Super-delegates are necessary for their nominations, but they have a problem with the Electoral College? Aren’t they used for the same reasons?

If you don’t want the FBI involved in elections, why did the Democrats nominate someone who’s being investigated by the FBI.

If Hillary’s got paid $250,000 an hour for her speeches, how come no one showed up to her free ones?

The DNC is mad at Russia because they ‘think’ they are trying to manipulate our election by exposing that the DNC was manipulating our election, why?

Just one more thing on Trump’s ‘Locker Room Vocabulary’. Why is it that Liberals and the Media are upset about the words Trump used 11 years ago but they are comfortable with strange adult men using the Ladies Room with your Wives and Daughters?  ANON

I feel sure I could keep adding more questions but the Liberals will ignore theses as no one forces them to follow the rules. If we has an honest media and Federal Employees that were not biased it would be nice to watch closely if any of these questions ever appear again. When the FBI can’t be trusted who can you trust?

If the Democrats were made to follow the rules and laws they would never get anyone elected at the national level again. Draining the swamp has been found to be wider and deeper than even Trump expected. Let’s all try to help.

For the past several months possibly billions of dollars of Liberal money has been spent hoping to defeat the recent tax reduction. They have bought 100% of the Democrats in Congress to scream at the top of their lungs that we need tax increases to keep funding our new segment of voters, the unemployed and underemployed welfare army, WHY?

The primary reason is that the over educated, uneducated and under educated  American voters coupled with the welfare army can continue the Liberal/Progressive march to Socialism. The really sad thing to watch, if you care, is the and 95% Socialist and Communist professors in our higher education system that poison every day the young minds with their hate for freedoms. The really stupid part is the same professors can easily be imprisoned once they win their mission.

I received the following message from multiple sources that every American with any intelligence should read.

“The Trump administration released their annual Report to Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status, salary and position title of all 377 White House employees”.

“The report also said that Trump decided not to take a dime of his salary, instead he donated it to an amazing cause! (see below). I was able to check was true, plus Ivanka and Jarred are paid zero”.

“The report also showed that President Trump is far better at saving money than Obama was. The total annual White House salaries under Trump are $35.8 million vs. $40.9 under Obama, a savings of $5.1 million. Here are Some other key findings”.

“There are 110 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies”.

“Nineteen fewer staffers are dedicated to The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS). Currently there are five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump vs. 24 staffers who served Michelle Obama (FY2009)”.

“However, it’s what the report said Trump did with this salary that has everyone talking. Instead of taking his salary, Trump donated all $400,000 to the Department of the Interior where it will be used for construction and repair needs at military cemeteries! AMAZING! It’s so great to have a President who loves our brave military men and women so much”!

“Oh, and where’s the media coverage of this? Oh, that’s right, they don’t cover anything good that the President does”.                   ANON

Watching the news “FOX” today it was refreshing to see Walmart share their tax savings with their millions of employees. Since the tax relief legislation was enacted by Congress, without a single Democratic vote, in the House and Senate we watched an amazing number of American companies give significant bonuses to all employees.

Unless you watch Fox News you would never know the real value and help for the average working American. CNN and the other major networks have had lockjaw and little has been shared unless they could possibly gerrymander the facts into a disadvantage for Donald Trump.

I have a suggestion to make to the entire Democratic Party who opposed this help for everyone who works for a living. Let me propose a Democratic program to help all of those on welfare, every prisoner in America, 13 million illegals, 800,000 DACA aliens and the students who have been radicalized by Socialists Professors

Starting with the wealthy Democratic donors, some who hide from exposure, 100% of the Democratic Congresspersons, all liberal Government employees, all Progressives and every liberal employee in the Mainstream Media. You have to a person stated that the tax legislation would only help the rich. If everyone noted above would promise to donate every new dollar they will receive in the tax legislation decrease it could help the designated poor people in America including the aliens they love so dearly.  

A picture of Pelosi and Schumer serving T Bones to the prisoners of a Federal “pokey” would be great publicity. A picture of George Soros lounging around with some inner city gang leaders would be dynamite. Watching Bill Clinton marching with a promo sign at a House of Ill Repute would really help show support for the working woman.

Should the “Donkey Party” accept my above challenges it might actually gain enough votes to get control of Congress again.  

Let the 2018 political games begin. Trump is leading us to  an America that will work for a living again. Then we will have no needs for the army of illegals who get welfare to exist.                          C Brewer  1-11.18


Stay with this — the answer is at the end.

One evening a grandson was talking to his grandfather about current events.

The grandson asked his grandfather what he thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general..

The Grandfather replied, “Well, let me think a minute, I was born before:

‘ television

‘ penicillin

‘ polio shots

‘ frozen foods

‘ Xerox

‘ contact lenses

‘ Frisbees and

‘ the pill

There were no:

‘ credit cards

‘ laser beams or

‘ ball-point pens

Man had not invented :

‘ pantyhose

‘ air conditioners

‘ dishwashers

‘ clothes dryers

‘ and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and

‘ space travel was only in Flash Gordon books.

Your Grandmother and I got married first,… and then lived together..

Every family had a father and a mother.

I called every woman older than me, “mam”.

And after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title, “Sir.”

We were before gay-rights, computer-dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy.

Our lives were governed by the Bible, good judgment, and common sense.

We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.

Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege.

We thought fast food was eating half a biscuit while running to catch the school bus.

Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.

Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze started.

Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends-not purchasing condominiums.

We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.

We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President’s speeches on our radios.

And I don’t ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey.

If you saw anything with ‘Made in Japan ‘ on it, it was junk the term ‘making out’ referred to how you did on your school exam.

Pizza Hut, McDonald’s, and instant coffee were unheard of.

We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.

Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel.

And if you didn’t want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.

You could buy a new Ford Coupe for $600, … but who could afford one? Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.

In my day:

‘ “grass” was mowed,

‘ “coke” was a cold drink,

‘ “pot” was something your mother cooked in and

‘ “rock music” was your grandmother’s lullaby.

‘ “Aids” were helpers in the Principal’s office,

‘ “chip” meant a piece of wood,

‘ “hardware” was found in a hardware store and

‘ “software” wasn’t even a word.

And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby. No wonder people call us “old and confused” and say there is a generation gap or from the archives.

How old do you think I am?

Are you ready ?

This man would be only 70 years old today. ANON  


Can you image that I am 87 when we did not have many other things. C Brewer 12-27-17


I wonder if anyone but myself is sick of politics? We elected a non-politician to drain a swamp and the swamp is so huge and spans the entire United States, not just Washington DC. The problem is after nearly a year we are finally being treated to a journey back to “Peyton Place”.

We have seen the Russians blamed for Hillary’s demise when they were actually paid by the Democratic National Committee to build a clandestine plot to defeat Donald Trump. We have a “Search and Destroy” mission within the Justice Department to ruin the life of anyone close to Trump or his family. They are being fed by the mainstream media with every piece of fake news possible to get Trump ejected. They know when the swamp is drained they will be drummed out of the country by the people.

Washington DC is so scared of the mass of illegal actions that Congress is actually forcing some to resign before they are under oath. Our justice Department is so rife with hate, bias and liberals it would likely fold up if all of the cowards were dismissed. The bias and hate of the Federal Judges has even surprised me. Even the Supreme Court now makes decisions based on politics rather than the law.

If the truth was known and every member of Congress was forced to take a lie detector test no one would pass. If any of the males were asked if they ever made a pass at a woman and if any female were asked if they ever tricked a man all would fail if they said no. If 100% were asked if they ever padded an expense report all would fail if audited. None would pass if asked if they ever lied in their life as all would fail if they said no.

What we see happening in both Congress and all government employees is a race to survive and a good cleansing would be most refreshing.

Hopefully after Tuesday we can hear the news again as Mr. Roy Moore will be elected or defeated. In my 87 years I have never watched a “Lynching” of an American without his day in court. He has been labeled guilty by the media, Republicans and Democrats in Congress without a fair trial. To me the women who were obviously sought out by the Democratic Party to scream harassment now, were paid. Why did they not come forth when he was elected Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, not once but twice, 2000-2003 and 2012-2016.

What the media has omitted was at the time of every accusation he was a Democrat. Who is Roy Moore? He graduated from the US Military Academy with a BS in 1969 and served as a Captain in the US Army. He received his JD from the University of Alabama in 1977. He is married with four children and five grandchildren.  

Not having or caring to learn more the only thing I would condemn Moore for is being a lawyer. I would be first to admit we have far too many lawyers, especially in Congress. Even if Moore loses his opponent is also a lawyer and the people can’t win either way. I know nothing about Doug Jones or really care to. He is a liberal and enemy of common sense.

Clyde Brewer  12-10-2017




“For many years the House and Senate built a great wall.

While fighting over health care they had a great fall.

All the bureaucrats, Democrats and the lobbyist men,

Never want Congress to work together again”.


“America is filled with hate and ill will that has divided us,

By people like Schumer, Obama, Pelosi and George Soros.

After eight long years of destroying our freedoms and peace

America with Clinton faced another eight years of fleece.”


“Despite the hate, venom and desires of a biased media,

Unhappy American voters finally elected a leader.

Trump was his name and a Swamp he discovered,

With the people’s support our freedoms will be recovered”.


“We are at war with enemies both within and world wide,

Both hate our freedoms and Americans must decide.

The Socialists Demoncrats with Obama in charge.

Opened the door to the Muslims, world’s enemy at large.”


“If enough real Americans support Trump in his drive,

To provide jobs and stop welfare from being our strive.

America will return to its place as a leader so desired,

And prove that free people are that asset required.”


Happy Thanksgiving from a freedom loving 87 year old veteran and now a Poet who loves this Country so dearly.

News Article on Military Justice

Nov 7 at 1:38 PM My friend Ron Jenkins sent me this article that I feel needs to be read by every military veteran and those Americans that still support our Country, our Flag and our National Anthem and our veterans.  C Brewer

Bergdahl and Military Swamp Holdovers

Susan Stamper Brown
Nov 06, 2017

“I am a soldier. I fight where I am told, and I win where I fight.”  — Gen. George S. Patton.

Americans are outraged over the Bowe Bergdahl sentencing November 3 that should have led to serious prison time, or worse. But, face it, we now live in a country where deserters who cause fellow soldiers to be maimed or killed are treated as heroes if weak leftists are in charge.

He should be in prison. The only difference between Bergdahl and the guy who used a Home Depot truck to mow down and kill people in New York recently is that Bergdahl displayed his allegiance to the enemy on foreign soil.

Bergdahl walked because the military swamp remains filled with senior leaders who climbed the ranks curtseying to former President Obama’s social experimentation and his upside-down value system whereby one treasonous deserter is worth five senior Taliban terrorists.

Obama exchanged five of Gitmo’s finest for Bergdahl, then hosted a sickening spectacle at the White House Rose Garden where a touchy-feely Obama spoke to Bergdahl’s parents “courage.” Meanwhile, Obama’s favorite fact-twister, former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, made her rounds, propagandizing that Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction.”

Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers had a different story to tell on the Fort Richardson, Alaska Facebook page.  Time.com
recorded comments which included: “I say we welcome him home with a firing squad,” and “He’s a piece of trash and everyone from [Fort Richardson] knows it – the only person less American than that man is the president for giving up 5 hvt’s [High-Value Targets].”

Another said: “Maybe if you knew the truth and the sacrifices made from people in our units in Alaska to find this douche… I feel worse for the kids who have to grow up fatherless cause their daddies died looking for this punk.”
Now, “this punk” walks, thanks to, in part, the judge in charge, Col. Jeffrey R. Nance, who once said at a Fort Bragg hearing: “I will consider the president’s [Trump’s] comments [regarding Bergdahl] as mitigation evidence as I arrive at an appropriate sentence.” Nance was referring to Trump’s less-than-complimentary comments about Bergdahl.

Obviously, Col. Nance did just that, essentially presenting Bergdahl a snowflake award, punishing him with the equivalent of a hand slap, despite six soldiers killed and others permanently maimed.

In my opinion as a retired military officer’s wife, Bergdahl’s dishonorable discharge devalued my husband’s honorable one.  I also believe Obama’s and Rice’s comments about Bergdahl helped to tip the scales of justice in the wrong direction, not Trump’s.   Furthermore, as a military wife during wartime, I attended way too many funerals for those who gave their all for something that had meaning and purpose. Not searching for a selfish son of a gun who thought only of himself, not the lives and families his actions might destroy.

At times and when politics are not in play, military justice can be swift, painful and fair. Not this time, and especially not for the brave warriors maimed and killed while searching for Bergdahl.

Col. Nance rewarded a traitor and Obama freed dangerous enemies most likely to face us once more in some future battle, plain and simple. It’s fair to say the Taliban interprets Obama’s prisoner exchange and Nance’s decision to let Bergdahl walk as weakness to be exploited.

Even this columnist understands Americans are safest when our enemies see strength. Let them hate us, but they darn sure must respect us.

On a side note, given his rank, odds are, Nance is close to retirement, especially after trashing the Uniform Code of Military Justice, as many in the military community suggest. One can only pray.

Anyhow, it’s a sad day in America when a traitor is freed from a life sentence, while fellow soldiers risked their lives searching for him. What an insult to every veteran who served honorably.

From A Marine General:

My friend, Ron Jenkins shared the following message from Geffrey B Higginbothal, Maj. Gen USMC (Ret.). I have not seen a better message to the youth of America and I am proud to share this. I have made some minor changes to keep from embarrassing anyone but anyone can see exactly what General Higginbothal expressed to the ungrateful youth of America that need their brain engaged.  

C Brewer


I’ve been asking two simple questions lately;  

  • When do “we” get mad?   

  • When do we stop being passive

“If you are paid $25.00 an hour to show up to a rally to “counter” the other party using physical force and violence, you are not a “counter protester.”  You are a mercenary.  There is no need for further debate on this. You were paid to attack someone you don’t know for reasons that you couldn’t care enough about to go there for free. You did your “job” and collected your check and your reimbursement of expenses.  You’re a mercenary.  Not a Patriot. Not a Social Justice Warrior. Not a Defender of Freedom or Liberty. Not an upholder of Truth or Justice. None of those things you claim to be.  You are a mercenary.  And mercenaries are not lawful combatants and deserve whatever comes their way at the hands of the people they are attacking.

You have no 1st Amendment rights when you’re a mercenary.  Doesn’t matter what side you’re on. Doesn’t matter what cause you’re showing up to disrupt.  If you can’t express yourself peacefully through diplomatic means, then you better be prepared to meet your maker at the hands of someone who is only barely keeping their own violent tendencies at bay through a massive exercise of self-control.

I know it sounds romantic to attend these rallies and get s**t started with the other side. And when you’re young and passionate, it’s really easy to get whipped up into a frenzy of raw emotions. There is a reason why young people are preferred when it comes to warfare. They are easy to manipulate and control and set off.  But I’m telling you all this right now; you’ve got no idea what road you are starting down.  Romance and idealism wears off really fast when you’re laying in a pool of your own blood trying to stuff your intestines back into your torn abdomen.  I’ve been lucky enough to go forty-two years without having to put the skills I learned in the Marines to use.

I continue to train and keep those skills up to date because I see the madness that is happening all across this country.  I don’t train to attack others like you do.  I train to defend others FROM you. I’m not alone either.There are thousands of men and women in this country who have seen war and death and don’t want any more to do with it.  They want to live in peace.  They want to forget the things they’ve had to do in the service of their country.  They want to raise their kids and have family BBQ’s and build tree houses and soap box derby cars and have tea parties.  They don’t want this s**t that you’re selling.  You have the extremist left and the extremist right that are doing their best to get something started.  To force us into a Civil War.

Even in the 1860’s, the violence between the North and South was nowhere near what we see today.  Not even close.  And yet we still had a war of ideology that consumed hundreds of thousands of lives.  All you young and naive kids on both sides of this equation who think that having a Civil War will advance your agenda or restore your vision of what you think is America, just remember this… Those of us older generations aren’t having any of this s**t.  And if you jump off, you better be prepared to deal with US.  We don’t care what color you’re wearing or what sign you’re holding if you come after us, our friends, our family, our co-workers, our neighbors, etc.,  WE WILL KILL YOU.

So remember that when you’re thinking that it’s just Left vs Right, or Liberal vs Conservative, or Commie vs. Fascist.  We are the variable you’re not considering.  That “Silent Majority” that you pretend does not exist is getting really sick and tired of your bulls**t.
