    I suppose we should not wonder any longer at how the left and Democrats have become the war party and MIC propagandists.

    Man, if this is true, there is no wonder why they wouldn't "investigate" the election mayhem.

    124 retired military officers penned this letter: https://img1.wsimg.com/blobby/go/fb7...=1620643005025

    Too bad he waited for the 13th hour before he became a real President. He could have stopped all that lockdown madness, he could have brought our sons and daughters home, he could have cut the government's spending, he could have done lots of things that I would have respected. But alas, he was a conman.

    You cannot give Reputation to the same post twice.

    I'm going to have to watch this more than once to digest it. Not just the report itself, but all of the vectoring in it. So.....to keep people from watching this and thinking "Hey...maybe this is a good idea" and the end CNN throws in a "Trump supports torture and the generals he surrounded himself didn't" unsourced hand grenade. Ummm....if these long time generals were against torture, why didn't they stop it under Bush? Trump wanted to pull all of the troops out of Africa? Sounds good to me. Same for pulling them out of Germany and Afghanistan. And yeah..."diversity" isn't the job description of a military.

    You really think he just changed at the last minute??

    The elite could have released the COVID virus any time they wanted.. several years ago, several years from now... certainly it helps them with many of their goals, but there is only ONE goal it served by releasing it at that specific time. They released it last year to help ensure Trump lost the election.

    First of all, he was against the lockdowns. He supported a short lockdown at the beginning when we didn't know what was going on, then after that he promoted opening up the country like Florida did. But he didn't want to overstep his Constitutional bounds. The media would have treated him like a dictator, and that would have been bad for the election. He reacted to COVID the way he did, because anything else would have just made everything worse in terms of the election and we would have certainly ended up with Biden in the White House. One thing many people learned form Trump is that the media has a lot more power than the President. Trump still won the election, they are still doing audits. He did everything he could to expose the cheating.

    He tried that multiple times as well.

    Congress did all the details on that, there was some spending he believed he needed to turn things around which is why he couldn't just veto it, he was making some deals. He wanted to do infrastructure before the dems did. This country is not going in the direction of libertarian, we probably only have maybe 1-3 Senators who would go along with a spending proposal that includes large cuts to pretty much everything in government.

    However after his initial goals, which were all hindered by Russia, impeachment and COVID, I believe Trump would have come down hard on spending. Don't believe me? Well, I was one of the people here laughed at for saying that after Trump took care of ISIS, which was a mess Obama created and funded, and Trump felt was our responsibility to clean up, that he would have pulled our troops home. Or at least tried. And he did. So...

    He did do a lot of things you respected. He cut massive regulations, lowered taxes and tried to get us out of the middle east. The only people he was trying to "con" were the elite establishment.

    Pulling all troops from around the world is going to meet a lot of resistance from a military strategy standpoint . Pulling troops from Afghanistan , Iraq , Africa , South Korea and the middle east should not really meet resistance and if it does there is a problem.
    Do something Danke

    I started questioning my current views on Trump after I saw that report. Just when you think you've figured Trump out...

    So if this reporting is factual, there was some sort of 'rebellion' and a sitting Prez & Commander-in-Chief's orders were disobeyed?

    If so, who is/are the supreme leaders who are in reality the final deciders and can supercede orders of a sitting POTUS & C-in-C?

    Not looking for scapegoating cartoons or memes based answer, serious plain answer if anyone has full grasp of the situation.
