American Crime 

Posted in uncategorized with tags , on December 4, 2021 by andelino

Recently released statistics show that violent crime in America increased drastically in 2020, United States Sen. Tom Cotton wrote for Breitbart on October 2. Citing material from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Senator Cotton called the situation “one of the worst crime waves in American history.” And it’s continuing into 2021.

The murder rate rose by 29 percent, from 14,538 deaths in 2019 to 17,815 deaths in 2020. That’s the biggest single-year increase the FBI has ever recorded. Deaths caused by drug overdoses meanwhile increased 30 percent. Gang-related deaths increased over 55 percent. In a September 27 press release, the FBI stated that “for the first time in four years, the estimated number of violent crimes in the nation increased when compared with the previous year’s statistics.”

Joint Chiefs of Woke

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 14, 2021 by andelino

Republican representatives Matt Gaetz and Michael Waltz, during the June 23 session of the House Armed Services Committee, questioned why the United States military offered courses and training on critical race theory.

The questions were prompted after several active military members contacted the representatives and expressed concern about the recent “Understanding Whiteness and White Rage” seminar held at West Point. The Chief of Naval Operations recommended the book “How to Be an Anti-Racist”, which proposes the solution to racism is discrimination against white people.

Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, defended the training offered by the U.S. military: “I want to understand white rage, and I’m white. And I want to understand it. So what is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the Constitution of the United States of America? I want to find that out. I want to maintain an open mind here, and I do want to analyze it. It is important that the leaders now and in the future do understand it.”

The most powerful man in America’s military believes that the events on January 6 were an attempt to overturn the Constitution of the nation. Milley continued:

“I’ve read Mao Tse Tung. I’ve read Karl Marx. I’ve read Lenin. That doesn’t make me a Communist. So what is wrong with having some situational understanding about the country for which we are here to defend? And I personally find it offensive that we are accusing the United States military, our general officers, our commissioned, non-commissioned officers of being ‘woke’ or something else because we’re studying some theories that are out there.”

Milley is correct: Reading Mao, Lenin and Marx does not make you a Communist. But that is not the issue. The real threat is that the education being mandated by the military’s top leadership is attempting to overturn the Constitution of the United States.

Every enlisted member and every officer takes an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” How can we expect the men and women in the military to defend the Constitution when they are being taught that America is systemically racist and that supporters of President Donald Trump are white supremacists?

General Milley’s comments have exposed how he is enabling the agenda of the radical left to politicize the military. More information has revealed how Milley actively undermined President Trump and was complicit with the “deep state.”

Everyone in Washington, D.C., knew that the Mueller probe was being used to hide the illegal and treasonous actions taken against a duly elected president. The complicity among the political class, including Democrats, Republicans, the news media and others, is far deeper than Americans realize. The amount of power, money, influence, technology and intimidation they wield is staggering.

The deep, deep corruption in Washington is being exposed before our eyes. The longer time goes on, the more corruption is being exposed in the government. We still have not gotten to the bottom of the swamp. The fraudulent 2020 election has amplified how much corruption and complicity there is in every level of government. I am certain that in time we are about to see some of the biggest frauds exposed perhaps ever!

This complicity and corruption includes the top leadership of the U.S. military. The top echelons of the military hold a lot of power, but they are not helping to preserve and defend America. Currently they are in league with the forces seeking to blot out America.

Right now the radical left has a stranglehold on every branch of the government: the executive, the legislative and the judicial. The only forces that can check their agenda are the military and the Second Amendment.

“Woke” General Milley is enabling the radicalization of the military, despite insisting he is apolitical. During his impassioned testimony at the House Committee on June 23, General Milley said:

“First of all, on the issue of critical race theory, et cetera, a lot of us have to get much smarter on whatever the theory is. But I do think it’s important actually for those of us in uniform to be open-minded and be widely read. And the United States Military Academy is a university. And it is important that we train and we understand.”

Milley said the United States Military Academy is a university. That is true in a technical sense, but what should be of concern is the military institutions becoming like any other university in America. The radicalization of America’s educational system by Communists has been documented. Radical-left professors dominate the faculty at nearly all universities. But did you know these same professors have also taught every single top military leader for decades?

Following the Vietnam War, the U.S. military made it mandatory for commissioned officers to have a college degree. General Milley has several degrees, but he entered the military after getting a bachelor’s in political science from Princeton in 1980. Interestingly enough, Robert Mueller received the same degree from Princeton years prior. We were warned that the Communist infiltration of America would target education and the military.

It’s a kind of warfare we don’t understand, or know how to cope with. It uses every diabolical means to weaken us from within, sapping our strength, perverting our morals, sabotaging our educational system, wrecking our social structure, destroying our spiritual and religious life, weakening our industrial and economic power, demoralizing our armed forces, and finally, after such infiltration, overthrowing our government by force and violence!

Nearly all top military leaders have been educated in the Marxist-dominated educational system. These officers are transplanting their education and methods from these radical universities and placing them into the U.S. military’s academies and policies. The education in the military is demoralizing our armed forces.

Victor Davis Hanson wrote in an article titled Has the Military Lost Middle America? that the military is targeting political supporters of Donald Trump:

“The Pentagon’s current and past top echelon is seen as politically weaponized—and both careerist and opportunist. Generals and admirals are currently scanning enlistments for mythical white supremacists, in fear of left-wing pressure following the riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. These military officials apparently have no commensurate concern about whether there are Antifa-affiliated service members with records of past violence.”

The Wall Street Journal reported that the Navy has a reading list, which includes “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness and Sexual Minorities and Politics.” Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton revealed that several hundred complaints came to him about racism and extremist training that labeled America as “systemically racist” and that the U.S. military is generally “racist.”

Tucker Carlson revealed in December 2020 how some leaders were pushing for service members to read “White Fragility”, by Robin DiAngelo, and that during Operation Inclusion the military labeled the term “Make America Great Again” as a white supremacist slogan.

President Trump signed an executive order canceling all critical race theory training in the federal government. “Fraud-In-Chief” Joe Biden nullified that executive order on his first day in office. Many military leaders are pushing this radical education, especially the new Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. General Milley has not only endorsed this policy, he has also worked with the deep state in the coup against President Trump.

General Milley first seemed to break with President Trump after he walked with the president to the St. John’s Church in Washington, D.C. Hanson wrote: “The tenure of highly decorated Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has proved a veritable train wreck of late. Under pressure from the left, last summer he renounced a photo appearance with then President Donald Trump as unduly politicizing his service.”

It is a matter of routine for the Joint Chiefs to appear with the president in photo ops. Milley did so at St. John’s, but then succumbed to media pressure and accusations that protesters were removed from the area using tear gas solely so the president could have a photo op. This despite the fact that the inspector general of the Department of the Interior later confirmed that the clearing of the violent protesters had nothing to do with the photo op.

The blogger Sundance pointed out that General Milley never removed Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman from his post, even after he compromised his position by attacking President Trump over the fake scandal surrounding the Ukraine phone call. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and General Milley also authorized military strikes in Syria and Iraq and only told President Trump after they occurred. A few days later, Col. Douglas MacGregor said he thought President Trump was being intentionally and “skillfully misinformed.”

The entire military establishment at the Pentagon worked against President Trump during his administration because, as an outsider, Trump went against the conventional Pentagon agenda. Trump leveraged diplomatic and economic pressure more often than using the military. These Pentagon leaders, including General Milley, lost some of their influence and control. The military was not used to a commander in chief actually utilizing his authority to fulfill his vision, not the vision of the establishment.

More stories have emerged that President Trump and General Milley clashed on several issues. Apparently the two had a shouting match over the president wanting Milley to be in charge of National Guard troops, with Milley telling the president it was unlawful for him to command troops. Milley also opposed President Trump using National Guard troops to maintain civic order.

Hanson wrote: “Equally untrue were complaints from Milley and a host of retired officers about Trump tyrannically using federal troops to maintain civic order. Such action has happened repeatedly in our history. For example, Gen. Colin Powell, former head of the Joints Chiefs, commanded the troops sent into Los Angeles in 1992 to quell the rioting that followed the acquittal of L.A. police officers charged in the beating of Rodney King.”

Before the January 6 protest, General Milley reportedly compared Trump supporters to Nazi brown shirts. Milley reportedly thought Trump might try to invoke the Insurrection Act and use the military to gain power. “You can’t do this without the military,” Milley said. “You can’t do this without the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. We’re the guys with the guns.”

General Milley even took a phone call from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who asked him to ensure Trump couldn’t use the military or launch nuclear weapons.

Milley reportedly thought Trump would try to stage a coup before Inauguration Day and apparently had a plan for all top-ranking officers to resign. President Trump said he never planned a coup or the use of the military to maintain power. Despite this imagined fear that Milley created, he did not have a problem militarizing the capital with National Guard troops.

Hanson pointed out his contradictory policies: “Neither Milley nor any of the previously vocal top brass objected to the Biden administration’s militarization of Washington, D.C., after January 6. There was not a word about miles of barbed wire and fencing. There was utter silence about the omnipresence of thousands of armed troops throughout the city. Such mobilization was the very scenario they had said would pose an existential threat to democracy.”

Whether some of these emerging stories are true or not, General Milley’s actions speak for themselves: Milley has been an enabler for the deep state’s agenda. This is yet another layer of deep corruption that is being exposed in America’s government!

Change is coming; that may involve a change in power of all these corrupt leaders who are being exposed. If the radical left maintains its hold on the leadership of the military, it is difficult to see how President Trump could return to power.

Open Letter to Iran

Open Letter to Iran 00

Senator Tom Cotton.

Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) along with 46 of his Republican “colleagues” in the Senate released an open letter to the Leaders of the “Islamic Republic of Iran” about the ongoing “nuclear” negotiations between their country and the United States. A PDF of the official letter can be found here.

cotton-open-letter-to-iranian-leaders-

The following is an open letter from the “Council of Guardians” from the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United States Senate.

Open Letter to Iran 02
Dear senators:

Thank you for your letter of March 9 explaining your system of government. We were unfamiliar with the complexity of your laws. For three years we have been negotiating a nuclear energy agreement with your president. We now realize our mistake. As your letter makes clear, the authority to establish such agreements on behalf of your country rests with your Congress.

We are in your debt for this clarification. Moreover, your letter has prompted us to undertake a broader study of the American political system. What we have learned has opened our eyes. For 35 years, we have treated you as an adversary. Our intelligence agencies told us that your culture and your political system were radically different from ours. We now understand that we were misled. Your country is much like ours. Indeed, your Republican Congress is much like our revolutionary Islamic councils. We are brothers.

Your letter explains that our discussions with your president have been in vain because “anything not approved by Congress is a mere executive agreement,” which can easily be cast aside by a future president or Congress. Under your Constitution, as you point out, “the president may serve only two 4-year terms, whereas senators may serve an unlimited number of 6-year terms.” Therefore, the ultimate authority to make and interpret your country’s policies resides with you, not with your president. As you note, “President Obama will leave office in January 2017, while most of us will remain in office well beyond then—perhaps decades.”

We were delighted to read this sentence. What you have described—a circle of overseers who work in perpetuity to restrain the president—is very familiar to us. Our president, like yours, is limited to two consecutive four-year terms. His powers are also severely circumscribed. He has a national security council, but he and his council do not establish our nation’s policies.

In our system, true power lies with the chamber that oversees the president. For you, this chamber is the Senate, controlled by your Republican caucus. For us, it is the Council of Guardians. Members of our council, like members of your Senate, serve six-year terms. The council may veto any legislation, which, in its judgment, violates our republic’s guiding body of law. For us, that body of law is Sharia.

Our intelligence agencies told us that in your country, the guiding document is your Constitution. Recently, however, we watched videos from your “Conservative Political Action Conference.” Several of your senators spoke there about the abomination of homosexual marriage and the importance of protecting religion. Our assessment is that your senators interpret your Constitution in accordance with the Christian Bible, just as our council applies our Constitution in the light of the Holy Qur’an. We particularly enjoyed the speech of your senator from Texas, Ted Cruz, who called on your government to fight for Christians abroad. This is in agreement with our own policy of coming to the aid of faithful Muslims everywhere.

We are in great admiration of Sen. Cruz. In our republic, he would be an Ayatollah Uzma. We appreciate his signature on your letter and his steadfastness in correcting your president. Many of us were dismayed to learn that Sen. Cruz was criticized in your country for withholding the government’s operating funds in order to block the implementation of a health care law. Some Americans even called the senator a hostage taker.

We also very much admire the principal author of your letter, Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas. Sen. Cotton, like many of our young militiamen, served in combat in Iraq and believes that he is an instrument of God. Some may consider him too young to assert dominion over your country’s foreign policy, at 37 years of age and with only two years of political experience. But we in Iran appreciate his vigor. He reminds us of the young men who seized your embassy here in 1979, two years after he was born. Those brave young revolutionaries did not wait for guidance from their elders.

In Iran, all educational institutions are governed by our Cultural Revolution Council, which safeguards the faith of the people. We have been unable to locate such a council in your federal government. However, we recently learned that the state board of education in Sen. Cruz’s state, Texas, controls through its purchasing power the content of textbooks throughout your country. The board has used this power to limit the teaching of evolution and promote the celebration of your country as a Christian nation. Our cultural council protects Islam in the same way.

Our system, like yours, has its critics. Some portray our Council of Guardians as unelected ideologues who override the will of the people. The charge is absurd, as your own experience demonstrates. In your country’s three most recent elections, which together produced your Senate’s entire current membership, the other party’s nominees won 5 million more votes than yours did. Nevertheless, you control the chamber. The true will of the people, as you know, is to follow those of us who understand what is best.

Thank you once again for this enlightening exchange. Prompted by your letter, our council has decided to end the talks with your secretary of state and dismiss nuclear inspectors from our country. We look forward to working with you in the future on other matters of common interest, such as prayer, capital punishment, and troops in Iraq.

Sincerely,
Council of Guardians
The Islamic Republic of Iran

Open Letter to Iran 03

The following is an open letter from the “Islamic Republic of Iran” to the United States Senate.

Dear Mr. Tom Cotton, et al,

We received your letter from March 5. Our English is not the best, but we believe we understand your main points. Thank you for your interest in joining the Revolutionary Guard. We know you appreciate the many exciting opportunities the Guard provides to fight the Zionist-Crusader alliance while awaiting the coming of the blessed Mahdi, while also earning you money for college.

Unfortunately the Guard is not for everyone. We have stringent requirements that must be met. Per Reference 3563-3 Paragraph 5.9 and Surah 8 of the Noble Qur’an, you must be between the ages of 17 and 35, bearded, a Shia Muslim, a resident of Iran, and possess a diploma from your local madrasa or equivalent GED certificate. Our understanding is that you are citizens from the Great Satan of America, which could create a possible conflict of interest and would prevent you from obtaining any relevant security clearances.

Even if it does not, we are currently engaged in high level negotiations with your government’s political leaders and are concerned that allowing American mercenaries to enlist could needlessly endanger what is already a tense and delicate situation. We are sorry that we cannot simply add you to our ranks. Should you still wish to help the Islamic Republic, we suggest you contact our affiliated recruiters at Hezbollah.

We appreciate your interest in the Islamic Republic of Iran, and have included several free t-shirts with this letter. We hope you enjoy them and wear them in good health.

Assalaamu Alaikum,
Javad Zarif, Minister of Foreign Affairs
Islamic Republic of Iran

Open Letter to Iran 01

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Iran’s supreme leader called Republican senators’ letter to Tehran the “ultimate degree of the collapse of political ethics and the U.S. system’s internal disintegration.” According to Iran’s news agency, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei noted that the GOP’s insistence that any deal struck by President Obama could be null and void when he leaves office is a sign of America’s “tricks and deceits.” Khamenei has the final say over decisions in Iran, especially about its nuclear program. “Of course I am worried, because the other side is known for opacity, deceit, and backstabbing,” he said.

Mullah Obama 01

In the most direct statement to date about the Republican open letter to Iran, Mullah Obama said that he’s “embarrassed for them.”

”For them to address a letter to the ayatollah — the supreme leader of Iran, who they claim is our mortal enemy — and their basic argument to them is: don’t deal with our president, because you can’t trust him to follow through on an agreement… That’s close to unprecedented,” he said in an interview with VICE News.

VICE News released a “trailer” of its interview with Obama’s comments on the letter.
