Top Army General Just Threw Obama Under The Bus, Trump’s Plan Worked Perfectly!

Published

on

If you really want to know how a Commander-in-Chief is doing, listen to how the military talks about him. They adore President Trump and have done so since the beginning. Trump has given military personnel their dignity back once again. A ton of money is being spent on beefing up and restoring our military these days and our warriors are getting more pay and benefits as well. In Trump, they find a decisive and courageous leader… something all soldiers need and want in a time of war or conflict. The same cannot be said of Barack Obama when he occupied that position. Not even close.

The outgoing commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, Army Gen. John Nicholson, just told reporters that the South Asia Strategy put in place a year ago by President Trump is not only succeeding, it’s bringing the 17-year war to its closest reconciliation point yet. “The strategy is working,” Nicholson, commander of NATO’s Resolute Support mission, told reporters. “Reconciliation progress is significant, and ultimately, wars end with a political settlement. So the progress toward reconciliation is key.”

Everyone hopes for an end to the Afghanistan conflict very soon so our boys and girls can come home from the battle theater. Trump has increased our troop presence there from 8,400 in the waning days of Obama’s presidency, to approximately 16,000 today, according to congressional statistics cited by the Military Times. And of course, you have the Secretary of Defense James Mattis overseeing military maneuvers etc. and he’s doing a fantastic job of it.

By roughly doubling the number of troops in the region, the Taliban has been set back on their heels. They know they can’t overwhelm Afghan forces and in the end will be forced to negotiate a form of peace to end this. “We were on a glide path to reduce our forces, and eventually to close down the mission,” stated Nicholson, who was appointed by Obama.

“At that time, the enemy had no incentive to negotiate, because we were leaving … the enemy believed we had lost our will to win. And all they needed to do was wait us out.” That is demoralizing for our troops and invigorating for our enemies. “We have an unprecedented opportunity for peace now,” Nicholson said. I think it’s what he doesn’t say about Obama here that speaks volumes. This also makes it clear how key negotiation is in all of this.

Nicholson is reporting that there are now two peace offerings that have been proposed within six months of the South Asia Strategy being implemented. That is a testament to success for Trump’s strategy here. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani offered a three-day ceasefire. That’s not all either. Evidently, the U.S. and the Taliban have also reportedly opened a bilateral channel with Ghani’s blessing. “We’re seeing progress toward reconciliation,” Nicholson stated. “What I would say is focus on the talking part of this…given that the traditional metrics of fighting are not explaining why the Taliban are willing to talk now.”

The Taliban, however, are not defeated yet by any means and they are still a force to be reckoned with. They are still striking and killing many, many civilians. Nicholson pointed out that the Taliban is still capable of launching deadly attacks, but not necessarily capable of taking control of key areas of the country. “This was not a military victory by any stretch. They were driven out of the city, and it was done in about four days,” he said. “Can they launch an attack for four days? Yes. Do those attacks succeed in gaining and holding ground? No.”

“There will be ups and downs,” Nicholson remarked on the fight against the Taliban. “There will be leaps ahead; there will be frustration; there will be two steps forward, one step back from time to time. But the process has started and it wouldn’t have happened without the South Asia Strategy.” And he will never guarantee an end date for the conflict, but it seems that our military is making great progress towards ending the conflict nonetheless.

Nicholson admitted that despite the progress, “We certainly wanted to see this war be over many years ago.” I think we all did… but war is fickle and you can’t just pull out or walk away. Someone should tell Obama that. President Trump certainly understands this military precept.

With approximately two dozen terrorist groups based in the country, Nicholson really believes the presence of U.S. and NATO forces would “prevent the emergence of some new threat to the homeland.” “Our presence here does protect the homeland and prevent another 9/11,” he said. “I firmly believe that.” I would agree wholeheartedly on that point.

Afghanistan has been the beating heart of where much of the world’s terrorism is born. This general is making it clear that Trump’s plan and strategy are working perfectly. And as a bonus, he quietly threw Obama under the military bus. He may not have even meant to do it, but still… nice.

Lt. Gen. Austin “Scott” Miller is slated to succeed Nicholson and take command in the fall. Miller, who is the 17th commander to oversee the Afghanistan mission, most recently commanded the Joint Special Operations Command.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
