After nearly 20 years of fighting, for many americans these are the images of war. American troops battling terror groups Al-Qaeda and the Taliban, in the mountains and caves of Afghanistan Isis in Iraqi towns and villages and throughout the Syrian desert, but the way that we fight the next major war is going to look very different from the
way that we fought the last.

Serving in
the United States military was the best time of my life the sense of duty the brotherhood the camaraderie the sacrifice the separation the pain even the injuries I loved every second of it I loved everything about being a soldier for the exception of one and that it that I missed out on the opportunity to watch my kids grow.
 
There's a reason why they call it sacrifice and that's one I'll be honest still stings to this day when i see new parents with their young children that's what I think about and the time that I miss with my kids, but it comes with the territory if we don't serve and spend extended time away from our families our homeland would be at
risk. So that is what it gives us as soldiers the idea that we serve so that our children can grow up in a safe environment. No amount of money in the world can make up for the time spent away from our family. Fifty thousand dollars sign on bonus to join the military.
 
When I joined I was told I was lucky that I could get in, and you know, many of the people that I served with are probably now thinking, maybe we should try to re-enlist assuming that we could pass the physicals. Ladies and Gentlemen look I understand that the
majority of people that are going to be getting the $50,000 bonus are people that probably would make more money if they stayed on the civilian sector. People like doctors, engineers lawyers and what not.
 
But the idea that I want to focus on in this video is that our military is willing to give someone $50,000 to join but what do we get when we leave how are our veterans being treated? The ones that have already served and sacrificed? Where's our fifty thousand? Now I'm glad to see new recruits compensated because the extra money and
knowing their families are taken care of financially at least is one less thing a soldier has to worry about and having said that the soldier that only enlists for financial motivation is called a mercenary and we don't want our military to turn into that that is the only thing
that gives me pause when I see a headline like enlist today and earn up to fifty thousand dollars what I also think about is the makeup of our military and how unfortunately the majority of recruits come from lower income backgrounds.

That join because
they have no other choice, in Logan county West Virginia 30 years ago when I enlisted it was dig coal, sell dope or
join the army. Guess what in 2022 nothing has changed. Those are the same three options that our next generation has and that bothers me. Truth be told, that's why I went into politics in the first place.
This is what I hope you take away from this video, it is great that the military is incentivizing new recruits with sign-on bonuses that they deserve, but think about their sacrifice and how money really doesn't even come close to making up for what they're about to go through. 
 
For the new recruits you are about to embark on a journey of a
lifetime one that will set you apart. Teach you discipline and life skills that you will carry with you long after you take off your boots. Enjoy your time stay safe and let me be the first to say Thank You for your service. 
 
Sappers clear the way Airborne all the way!  
 
 

 

Would you join the Army today? 

 

 

I know when I was very young I thought I would like to, but as I aged saw I really do not enjoy being told WTF to do, so I grew out of that right quick. Is it fair to those who have already served, is it fair to those who walk our streets with no home? Last Question: Would it be Fair if they reinstated the Draft.?

Meanwhile it isn't just the former president it's cheering when folks like congressman Katko say they aren't running he is wielding his power through endorsements which can in some cases
reorient an entire field or make a politician bend his or her positions to the former president's will. So who is the former president endorsing? What does
he want the future of the republican party to look like?
 
Our political unit ran the numbers and here's what we found. This is basically a census if you will of the 93 candidates that the Trump has endorsed. So far since leaving office 73 are men 20 are women 35 are running for u.s. house seats 15 are running for u.s. senate seats 12 are running for governor
about half are incumbents running for re-election, but a notable flanks of 15 Trump-backed candidates are challenging sitting republican office holders who the former president once replaced many of them for what he perceives as disloyalty and you know what disloyalty means.

It means somehow believing not the
results of the 2020 election as we've noted before the emerging litmus test for the future republicans is simply an adherence to the former president's lie about 2020. Not surprisingly but importantly 59 of the 93 candidates he's endorsed have questioned the 2020 results some of them voted against the electoral college certification, in congress a total of 10 candidates that has been that have been endorsed by Trump attended his rally in Washington on January 6 of last year. Former president will hold his first rally of the year by the way tomorrow (today) in Arizona and joining him on stage will be his endorsement picks for governor Kari Lake and his pick for secretary of state Mark Fincham. Both candidates who've said they want to decertify Arizona's 2020 election. There will be more endorsements likely to come from the former president as he continues to reshape the republican party in his own image. Will voters like what they see or not? 
 
That's one of the bigger questions as the midterms start to heat up, perhaps the only thing that could hold republicans back is Donald Trump?
 
 

 

I gotta tell you Folks, it really pisses me off this Fool is not in Jail, even more so that he caused the insurrection and free to go about his daily life, what do you folks think, are we seeing Justice or will it be denied us.?

A look back now at the year in politics. 2021 started with the deadly January 6 capital riot lawmakers including the
vice President ducking for cover as we
all watched it unfold that day marking one of the most divisive periods in
recent history ABC's MaryAlice Parks
has the story.
 
As violent rioters rammed past security and broke into the U.S. capitol congressman Dan Kildee was right there in the house gallery those balconies over the house floor this was one of the most dramatic things I've been through and then we could hear
this noise the sound of a crowd at the main lectern.

The
Sergeant-at-Arms told them the capital had been breached, still Kildee could not fathom so many were inside and that their lives were in danger. What in the hell is going on why isn't this you know why isn't this being put down more quickly how could this happen right it's and it's obviously it still bothers me and that place felt like untouchable yeah I mean the safest place you could imagine with the mob closing in the congressman
tried to take cover. 
 
I called my wife and as soon as I heard her voice it just hit me that I was having that phone call you know that you hear about a phone call from the building that's about to collapse or from the airplane that's going down, worried about his wife watching it all on TV. 
 
Kildee lied he told her that he was ok but moments later this, nobody ever thinks there's going to be one gunshot and no more I figured well this is it this is going to be a shootout of some kind. Kildee laid low on the floor remembering visiting those
very balconies as a teenager, his first introduction to capitol hill. Now he wondered if it would be his last view too. I grew up loving this institution
wanting to be a part of it finally getting here feeling this incredible honor every time i walk into it.
 
And then to have people who are also American's
who not only don't feel that who desecrated the place who tried to literally try to tear it and what it stands for apart.

That hurts me even now Kildee tells me
that he has changed and that the capital has changed he says he's lost respect for many of his republican colleagues who told lies about election fraud and
objected to fair election results he says he plans to be back on January 6 this year because the most important thing last year was that they came back
and certified the results we finished our work over the objections of a majority of one of the two political parties in this country if that if they had had their way.
 
We would not have certified that election the insurrection would have succeeded. Five people died that day more than 150 officers were injured many hospitalized seriously wounded unable to return to work for months. 
 
Marlon Dubisson remembers finally calling his mom to tell her that they were safe he has worked for congressman Jerry Connelly, for four years. Did you think for a second about just leaving being done with this place? No, you know I think leadership is important that day he was huddled here with his colleagues for hours. 
 
What do you want people to remember about that day as we come up on the anniversary? That it shouldn't be normalized the United States is a pillar of Democracy for a reason, so to attack our Democracy and for the world to see that it's, you know it did damage to our reputation and we have to build that back but I think when I wake up on January 6 2022, I'm going to think about the purpose that I have doing this job for Good

Manchin Throws West Virginians Under The Bus

Breaking news this morning:

Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia has just said he is a no on President Biden's
cornerstone legislation Build Back Better.
 
Take a listen. I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation, I just can't I've tried everything humanly possible. I can't get there.
 
You're done this is this is a no?
 
This is a no, on this legislation I have tried
everything I know to do.
 
I think he's going to have a lot of
explaining to do to the people of West
Virginia. 
 
What's up everybody retired major Richard Ojeda here. 
 
You want to know the number one question I get asked every single day, it doesn't matter if I'm at the grocery store or the airport visiting my doctor at the VA? 
 
It's always, will you primary Joe Manchin?
 
Not to mention hundreds of messages I get every
single week on social media asking the same question. I shake my head every time and here's why.

As democrats were
short-sighted, republicans play the long game. They think five to ten years ahead and with that logic that's what they've been able to do to. Completely control the federal benches all the way up to the supreme court, meanwhile democrats chase the shiny object and I'll be Honest sometimes I do that as well. We are willing to raise half a billion dollars to defeat Ted Cruz who gets one vote in the United States Senate and then we disregard Senator Dan Sullivan from Alaska who also gets one vote. We could have won and picked up a Senate seat in Alaska have we invested just a
little bit more in all gross last cycle. (?)
 
Now I don't want to harp on the past I'm
frustrated and so are you but to answer
everyone's question.
 
No I don't plan on running against Senator Manchin in 2024, and even if I was thinking about that it
wouldn't help us today, what we need to be focused on today is controlling things that we can control.
 
This year we have some outstanding democrats many of whom I've endorsed for the United States
Senate in states like, Ohio,  Pennsylvania
Wisconsin and Florida.
 
We need to win those four seats and we can win all four. Don't listen to the crap you're seeing on cable news that says otherwise and we can forget about Manchin and Synema and their votes.

Senator Manchin has
abandoned the Democratic party, but more importantly he has abandoned the good people of West Virginia. Senator Manchin
drives around the poorest state in the nation in his Maserati SUV and lounges around with his 
republican Senate colleagues in his multi-million dollar yacht, he does not understand the poverty
that the children of West Virginia suffer from or maybe he does and he just doesn't care I don't really know and I don't really care about Joe Manchin
anymore.
 
Look as far as I'm concerned Manchin works for McConnell, it's funny because he brags all day about being his own man when in reality all he does is exactly what his billionaire donors tell him to do. He is a slave to their dollars and that is his legacy.

I need everybody
to listen up and listen up right now. We cannot lose this fight if we do it will
be the American children that will suffer, so for everybody crying about how they will no longer vote for Democrats I want to ask you, what it is exactly in the republican party that you believe in?
What do they stand for? Why do you think that McConnell and McCarthy running the show will be better for America? 
 
It is time we stop whining and get to work!
Mobilize, Organize and bring back the same level of energy that we had in 2016 or we will be living 2016 sooner than you think.
 
Sappers clear the way, Airborne
all the way! 
 

 

 

Crazy Chit, No...? What's your take on a Clinton 2024 Bid...?

 

 

Personally I would prefer a Gabbard/Ojeda ticket 2024...
