Without honor

A little reminder of who they really are, and what they’re really all about.

WASHINGTON — More than 200 retired generals and admirals endorsed Joe Biden for president in a letter published Thursday, saying he had the character and judgment to serve as commander-in-chief instead of President Donald Trump, who has failed “to meet challenges large or small.”

Some of the officers who signed the letter supporting Biden had retired only in the past few years, including Air Force Gen. Paul Selva, who served as vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under Trump before he retired in August 2019; Vice Adm. Gardner Howe, a Navy SEAL leader who also retired last year; and retired Adm. Paul Zukunft, who oversaw the Coast Guard until 2018.

The retired top brass signed the letter backing Biden along with nearly 300 other former national security officials and diplomats. William Webster, the former director of the CIA and the FBI, was among the signatories, along with five former defense secretaries: William Perry, William Cohen, Chuck Hagel, Leon Panetta and Ash Carter.

By law, military service members must remain apolitical while in uniform, but most senior officers stay out of the political arena even after they hang up their uniforms. Although the number of retired senior officers wading into politics has steadily increased over the past two decades, Thursday’s letter was notable for the sheer number of top brass from every branch of the military who chose to endorse Biden.

Some of the statements in this letter are nothing short of jaw-slackening, particularly in light of recent events.

The retired officers and officials said the country needs a principled, honest leader who shows empathy for fellow citizens, values alliances, makes informed decisions and takes personal responsibility.

“While some of us may have different opinions on particular policy matters, we trust Joe Biden’s positions are rooted in sound judgment, thorough understanding, and fundamental values,” they wrote.

“The current President (ie, Trump—M) has demonstrated he is not equal to the enormous responsibilities of his office; he cannot rise to meet challenges large or small. Thanks to his disdainful attitude and his failures, our allies no longer trust or respect us, and our enemies no longer fear us,” the letter says.

Like I said, jaw-slackening stuff. But then we plummet from the dishonest, the clueless, and the downright absurd straight on down into laff-riot territory.

Climate change continues unabated, as does North Korea’s nuclear program. The president has ceded influence to a Russian adversary who puts bounties on the heads of American military personnel, and his trade war against China has only harmed America’s farmers and manufacturers,” it says.

Taking that point by point:

  • Climate change is going to go right ON “continuing unabated” too, same as it has ever since this planet first GOT a climate, and will always do. That’s what climates DO, fool
  • Ironically enough, Trump had actually made fair progress in his efforts to forge a more productive relationship with the Hermit Kingdom, all of which has now been undone
  • Sorry to be the one to clue ya in on it, guys, but that “Russian bounty” bushwa has long since been exposed as a brazen lie—another diabolical stratagem from those fine, upstanding patriots at CIA for its own nefarious purposes
  • The “trade war with China” did nothing whatsoever like what you falsely claim it did; in all honesty, though, I wouldn’t mind one little bit if those responsible for killing off American manufacturing and industry by relocating it to Red China ARE “harmed” in the end—not just financially, but physically, in a way that they’ll never forget

All in all, the Biden Bugout shows that everybody would be much better off—yourselves emphatically included—if our ass-covering, baglapping, back-stabbing Officer Class shitweasels spent way more of their time and attention on actually winning a war now and then, and way less of it pimping Woke politics. What a refreshing change THAT would be, eh?

JJ Sefton, after quoting Shakespeare’s famous and beloved “First thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers” advice, has the right of it: “Sorry, lawyers. You just lost your top spot.” Lawyers shouldn’t feel to bad about it, though; unlike US military and political “leadership” in the Ashcanistan debacle, the lawyers were supplanted fair and square, by an undeniably superior and more worthy opponent.

Those 200 retired generals and admirals are all owned. Every damn one of them is a traitor. It was nice of them to point that out with their signature.

That about says it all don’t it.

200 retired generals and admirals; nearly 300 other former national security officials and diplomats

falling all over themselves to work against our interests.

For some reason it brings to mind words & phrases like corrupt ruling class, regime change, & accountability… and those are just a few of the nicer ones.

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion.
