Candidate Joe Biden: President Trump “is not fit to command our troops”…

Former Vice-President Joe Biden doesn’t necessarily write his tweets.  The political careerists within his campaign are the ones who construct his messaging; however, the content is an accurate representation of where Biden stands on the specific issue:

(Tweet Link)

The Joe Biden campaign objective is to delegitimize President Trump.  Aside from the reality that Biden has just positioned himself outside the mainstream military, his position serves purposefully in using the military as a political weapon.

Politicizing the military is the same sentiment behind the impeachment crew instructing Lt. Col Alexander Vindman to wear his uniform for an impeachment hearing.  Same goals; same intents; same purpose.  {Go Deep}

(White House) – Executive Clemency for Army First Lieutenant Clint Lorance and Army Major Mathew Golsteyn, and the Promotion of Special Warfare Operator First Class Edward Gallagher

Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) for Army First Lieutenant Clint Lorance, an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) for Army Major Mathew Golsteyn, and an order directing the promotion of Special Warfare Operator First Class Edward R. Gallagher to the grade of E-7, the rank he held before he was tried and found not guilty of nearly all of the charges against him.

♦ In early July 2012, only days after Lieutenant Lorance had taken command of his platoon in one of the most dangerous battle zones in Afghanistan, a motorcycle with three men approached him and his men with unusual speed. Under difficult circumstances and prioritizing the lives of American troops, Lorance ordered his men to engage, and two of the three men were killed.

Following these events, Lorance was convicted of several charges. He has served more than six years of a 19-year sentence he received. Many Americans have sought executive clemency for Lorance, including 124,000 people who have signed a petition to the White House, as well as several members of Congress, including Senators Bill Cassidy and John Kennedy, and Representatives Steve Scalise, Garret Graves, Duncan Hunter, Paul Gosar, Adam Kinzinger, Scott Perry, Brian Babin, Neal Dunn, Michael Waltz, Louie Gohmert, Daniel Webster, Steve King, Ralph Norman, Mark Meadows, Clay Higgins, Ralph Abraham, Mike Johnson, and Jody Hice.

♦ Major Mathew Golsteyn, an officer of the United States Army and graduate of West Point, is currently set to stand trial for an allegedly unlawful killing in connection with one of the largest battles of the Afghanistan War.

As our forces cleared the Taliban from the city of Marjah, an Improvised Explosive Device detonated, killing two Marines. The terrorist bombmaker, as identified by an Afghan informant, who had killed our troops, was detained and questioned. Golsteyn was compelled to release him, however, due in part to deficiencies within the fledgling Afghan detention system. Golsteyn has said he later shot the terrorist because he was certain that the terrorist’s bombmaking activities would continue to threaten American troops and their Afghan partners, including Afghan civilians who had helped identify him.

After nearly a decade-long inquiry and multiple investigations, a swift resolution to the case of Major Golsteyn is in the interests of justice. Clemency for Major Golsteyn has
broad support, including from Representatives Louie Gohmert, Duncan Hunter, Mike Johnson, Ralph Abraham, and Clay Higgins, American author and Marine combat veteran Bing West, and Army combat veteran Pete Hegseth.

♦ Before the prosecution of Special Warfare Operator First Class Edward Gallagher, he had been selected for promotion to Senior Chief, awarded a Bronze Star with a “V” for valor, and assigned to an important position in the Navy as an instructor. Though ultimately acquitted on all of the most serious charges, he was stripped of these honors as he awaited his trial and its outcome. Given his service to our Nation, a promotion back to the rank and pay grade of Chief Petty Officer is justified.

The United States military justice system helps ensure good order and discipline for our millions of uniformed military members and holds to account those who violate the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Due in part to this system, we have the most disciplined, most effective, most respected, and most feared fighting force in the world.

The President, as Commander-in-Chief, is ultimately responsible for ensuring that the law is enforced and when appropriate, that mercy is granted. For more than two hundred years, presidents have used their authority to offer second chances to deserving individuals, including those in uniform who have served our country. These actions are in keeping with this long history. As the President has stated, “when our soldiers have to fight for our country, I want to give them the confidence to fight.”

      As I have said elsewhere, as Commander in Chief the President is the military justice system any time he wants to be. Any military man or woman who thinks otherwise can and should be courts-martialed. The communists are trying to turn America upside down. Stalin would approve.

      When you reject other American values, of course you reject All Men Are Created Equal. You return to a society of strict hierarchy. Those are fundamentally the only two options for organizing a society. All else is smoke and mirrors.

      Hierarchy betrays itself most starkly in military conflict. The enlisted man becomes cannon fodder. The Democrat’s desire to leave a handful of men in Syria is a desire to make them sacrificial lambs. To offer up their lives to advance the political goals of their betters.

      The impulse to fiercely impose, or re-impose hierarchy, will be a prime driving, motivating force in American politics in the coming years. Political correctness is the imposition of a new hierarchy. So is affirmative action, speech codes: the list is nearly endless. The left-right political divide is very much a divide between two completely different visions of America: human equality or neo-feudalist hierarchy.

    All I got out of that is that Joe Biden wants to punish American soldiers for doing their jobs.

    People like Joe Biden are the reason why the rest of society is teetering on the brink of revolution right now, with riots already ongoing in nations around the world. People like Joe Biden don’t have the good sense to shut up when it’s time to shut up.

      It was Biden that outed Seal Team 6. He’s not fit to even run for Commander in Chief, let alone be the Commander. Plus, if he were ever elected, it would be Valerie Jarrett commanding the troops anyway. Sit down and shut up, Creepy Joe.

      The joy these 3 military families are feeling, the happiness that will surround their Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations are what matters, not leftist political attacks. Truth and justice matter. God bless these patriots and may others that are wrongly imprisoned also be set free.

    GREAT Strategy Joe! Remind the American voters of the difference between how YOU and traitorous Barry treated our military, slashed their funding, kept them in endless wars and honoured deserters compared with how President Trump treats them. He’s restored their funding, gives the military control of conflicts, and now he’s bringing them home from the endless conflicts that only YOU and the DEEP STATE love. Compare the LOVE & Respect that DJT shows the troops compared with Bathhouse Barry’s “Latte’ Salutes”.

    Tell ya what Joe, let’s just poll the current troops and the veterans and see who THEY support.

    Biden is a disgrace as is his idiot son who was a failure as a naval officer. The elites of both parties will never identify with brave people such as Golsteyn, Gallagher and Loranz. Thank God we have a Commander-in-Chief who backs the rank and file troops, the super courageous operators like those mentioned above and everyday people who make this country work. President Trump has the courage of a lion!

    Oh yeah…for the disdainful elites, just remember; its a rich man’s war and a poor man’s fight fought disproportionately by people from fly-over country.

    Clinton pardons by year: https://www.justice.gov/pardon/clinton-pardons
    Roger Clinton, Jr., was granted a pardon after serving his full sentence of one year in federal prison for cocaine possession
    Susan McDougal, a business partner of Bill and Hilary Clinton, served 18 months in prison for her involvement in the Whitewater scandal. She was charged with contempt of court for refusing to testify about the Clinton’s role in the scandal.
    Melvin Reynolds, a fellow Clinton Democrat, was a congressman from Illinois who was serving time in prison for sexual assault, obstruction of justice and solicitation of child pornography.
    Harvey Weinig was a Manhattan lawyer who pleaded guilty to laundering $19 million made from illegal drug sales by Colombian drug traffickers.
    Marc Rich, who was indicted for evading $48 million in taxes and illegal oil deals with Iran during the time Iran was holding US hostages.
    The most criticized and publicly alarming clemency of the Clinton administration was the pardon of 16 members of the FALN, a violent Puerto Rican terrorist group that set off 120 bombs in the United States.

    President Trump has the backs of the military and police officers. Obama and Biden did not. President Trump did the right thing and I would venture to say that a large majority of Americans agree.

    An examination of the circumstances surrounding the incidents for which the pardoned service members were prosecuted under the UCMJ, indicates that there was extreme overreach on the part of the military prosecutors. But it’s the Commanding General who authorized the prosecutions. So the CG is ultimately responsible for what could have been a miscarriage of justice. There needs to be some Swamp Draining in the military too.

    Lt. Lorenz was on Fox and Friends this a.m. (Don’t know how to send the link) If you can find it, it is well worth watching. He is young, too young not to know what not to say, and he came out with one of the most profound statements I’ve heard in a long time. He said when military people have to go before Congress to get their star, they no longer represent the military but rather have become a politician. SO RIGHT.

    If President Trump is reading this, I have a few things to think about

    Find out the names of all the military officers purged by the Obama administration, and see if you can talk them back out of retirement and surround yourself with them. They will have your back.

    Look at putting Scooter Libby on your law team. He knows how dirty the other side plays. He has experience with Comey and Fitzgerald (Comey’s lawyer) and Mueller (though I’m not sure Mueller is still “in there” (in his mind) these days). He might not be experienced enough to do a lot of the heavy lifting, but he certainly can inform Sekalow et al just how dirty the other side plays.

    Biden knows crap about the military. What about the ROE and the 200 or so senior officers purged from the military because they were not loyal to the Administration. At one point a portion of the Army in Afghanistan required our patrols NOT to be locked and loaded to limit civilian casualties by slowing our guy’s reaction time.
    I contacted Col David Hackworth after my Journalist friend Michael Yon contacted readers about the policy and the Col wrote me that it would take up to 5 seconds to respond to an attack if NOT locked and loaded. Michael received actionable death threats.
    Lt. Lorance tried to have the riders stop since he had replaced an officer who was killed in such a sitution; they didn’t so he ordered his men to open fire, just as I would have done. These men were not armed, but they had disobeyed an order in a combat zone and thus placed themselves in jeopardy.

      Biden wouldn’t last 2 days in a combat zone. Snipers, IEDs, suicide bombers riding motorcycles, put enormous stress on the infantry soldier or Marine. Biden couldn’t handle it, but he thinks he’s qualified to pass judgement on those who lay it on the line to serve our Country and protect our freedoms.

    President Trump intervened in a deliberate and thoughtful manner, and no wrong is too small for a commander to correct. Deployed service members want clear goals and realistic ROEs that do not impose unnecessary risks for the operators. Where were the commanders up the chain of command? The lasting presence of the previous ROEs make it apparent too many flag officers cared more for their careers than the wellbeing of their charges. As a commander, I grasped the fact there is a difference between a mistake and a crime. Believe me, so do the troops.

    This disparaging statement from Joe Biden exemplifies previous socialist administrations attitudes towards our military services. Throughout Biden’s overlong political career, he has been party to all the Hillary Clinton State Department’s gun running that culminated in the Benghazi tragedies and led to the woeful exchange of Bergdahl for five captive Taliban terrorists, a quid pro quo if ever there was such. HRC already has 56 deaths to her credit, how many was she responsible for through Benghazi? Please can we have some justice for all those good people who needlessly perished by her scheming hands.
