Army Officer Becomes a Media Hero for Breaking Federal Law Endorsing Joe Biden at a Rally

Yesterday, Joe Biden was on the the campaign trail in South Carolina. As part of his campaign rally, a US Army officer, in uniform, addressed the crowd and expressed her admiration for the leadership of Obama and Biden when she was in Afghanistan.

I’ve been saving these coins for six years to meet you and President Obama so if that I ever met you, I would give it to you. I’m so honored to have served under your administration and your leadership and I hope and pray that you will be our next president.

This is wrong on so many levels that one doesn’t even know where to start. It is a blatant, in-your-face, f*** you of Army Regulations and DOD policy for a member of the Armed Forces to attend  a partisan campaign rally in uniform. It is a bigger screw you to speak at the rally and to endorse a candidate for president. The fact that she’s a commissioned officer compounds the matter because she has now brought her political loyalties into her organization and that will have an effect of readiness. A soldier who is a Trump supporter would have every right to be concerned that if she had so little regard for Army Regulations and the traditions of the service as to pull a clown stunt like this that she’d probably have little compunction about punishing him for him being opposed to her politically.

But, unlike the treatment the media dished out to young enlisted men who accepted signed MAGA hats from their Commander-in-Chief (read this by Bonchie back when he was a mere diarist), they are utterly swooning over this lawless act:

So far not a single Twitter blue-check personality has called for her to be punished. Think about this rank hypocrisy of this. Junior enlisted guys get a signed hat regardless of their political affiliation and the media demands they get punished. Commissioned officer attends a political rally in uniform in direct defiance of regulations and it is “bold” and “moving.”

One of the things that sets the US military apart from most other militaries in the world is that ours has never actively participated in partisan politics. Most other nations have had some point in their history where their military either ruled or were the power behind the throne. For that tradition we have exactly one man to thank, a wealthy, white slaveowner named George Washington, for how he responded to an impending military coup by the Continental Army. We can also thank him for establishing the tradition of presidents voluntarily leaving office after two term until that was thrashed by FDR. Maintaining that distance from politics is not easy and it is much harder today than it has been since the eve of the Civil War. It cannot be maintained if commissioned officers start visibly taking sides in political campaigns and endorsing candidates. And the only way you stop this kind of existential rot of the institutional soul is by hammering the living crap out of people who knowingly and willfully break the law.

The Army knows what she did.

Now let’s see if they have the guts to act. My bet is that they don’t.

Don Jr: Thanks to Their Deployment of Troops to the Border, Mexico is Doing More to Protect America Than Democrats

On Monday, I covered Mexico’s deployment of 15,000 National Guard members to the U.S.-Mexico border (see much more here).

Well, leave it to Donald Trump Jr. to tweet out a zinger lambasting the Left in the light of Mexico’s assistance.

As news of the country’s move broke, Jr. posted the following:

“Mexico doing more to protect America than Democrats. The Dems have lost their way… they are not your grandfather’s Democrat party any longer and haven’t been for far too long.”

He’s certainly right that what defines the Democratic Party has changed to a jaw-dropping degree.

For an easy view into the Dems of yore, just check this out:



And that guy, at the time, was considered a very Democrat Democrat.

So what the heck happened?

It seems to me that, in addition to moving toward open borders ideologically and maneuvering for the sake of acquiring the Hispanic vote, the party has traded principle for politics. In my opinion, congressional Democrats have decided their responsibility, above all, is to be the opposition party to the Republican presidency. He wants border security? No way, no how, no matter how it affects the nation.

That’s the way it appears to me, from the bleachers.

Am I right?

Either way, Don Jr. has an interesting point. And Mexico’s decision is a victory lap for Trump:

Yep.

Major Move: Mexico Deploys 15,000 Troops to the U.S. Border in Order to Stop Illegal Immigration

On Monday, Mexican Secretary of Defense Luis Sandoval declared the deployment of 15,000 soldiers to the border in order to stave off the enormous amount of illegal immigration into the U.S.

CNN reporter Nick Valencia tweeted:

“Mexico has deployed almost 15,000 troops to the US-Mexico border to curve migration flow. An additional ~2,000 National Guard elements have also been deployed across the country’s southern border with Guatemala & Belize.: MX Secretary of Defense Luis Sandoval.”

As per CNN, the announcement was made in Cancun.

The 2,000 National Guard members serve to bolster the 4,500 troops already at the Central American border.

The news comes at the end of a long line of efforts by the Trump White House (here) to engage Mexico’s assistance in quelling America’s border crisis (here and here).

Of course, Trump hasn’t just been fighting our neighbors to the south in order to secure America; he’s been battling Democratic congresspeople elected by Americans to secure America in order to…secure…America (here).

As for Mexico, most recently, The Donald laid a 5% tariff on ’em:

But that was called off:

So what’s next? It remains to be seen. For now, presumably, the 15,000 soldiers will help reduce the influx of those coming into the U.S illegally. But there’s still certainly a whole lot more work to do and changes to make.

And the promised wall is yet to stand.

What are your thoughts on all this? Do you believe the deployment will help? Let us all know in the Comments section.

Gov Abbott orders additional National Guard troops to Texas border

Westlake Legal Group 62e68731-9b6b-4767-992d-a36a5b763eb8 Gov Abbott orders additional National Guard troops to Texas border The Blog Texas national guard Illegal Immigration Governor Greg Abbott border crisis

Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced Friday that he will order 1,000 National Guard troops to the state’s southern border in response to an “escalating crisis”. He assured Texas taxpayers that the federal government will pick up the tab.

Joining Governor Abbott for the announcement were Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and House Speaker Dennis Bonnen. Abbott blames Congressional inaction for the necessity of the additional troops on the Texas border. He said that 45,000 illegal immigrants have been apprehended by federal authorities as they crossed the border in the last three weeks. There are 1,200 National Guardsmen serving at the Texas border already.

Abbott faulted Congress for refusing to pass laws to overhaul the nation’s immigration system and for not dealing with what he called a “humanitarian crisis” at the border.

“It leaves states like Texas fending for themselves,” he said. “While we wait for Congress to act, Texas will do all it can to protect its communities and to secure the border.”

An Abbott spokesman said the U.S. Department of Homeland Security would pay for the deployment, which Abbott characterized as a “short-term mission.” There are 1,200 National Guardsmen already working along the Texas-Mexico border.

The overall numbers from the crisis at the border are staggering. 133,000 illegal aliens were apprehended or surrendered to border agents along the southwest border in May. Since April, the number of those crossing at El Paso jumped 43% and at Del Rio the number jumped 46%. How, exactly, can one state keep up with that kind of escalation on its own? It can’t.

Governor Abbott outlined the role of the National Guard as he claimed that the mission is a short-termed one that will be paid for by the federal government.

Abbott said the troops will have two main roles: to help at temporary holding facilities for single adult migrants in the Rio Grande Valley and in El Paso, and to help Border Patrol units along ports of entry. The federal government, he said, will pay “100% of the costs of this short-term mission,” which will roughly double the number of Texas troops currently stationed at the border.

The elected officials in Washington, D.C. are not looked upon favorably in their handling of crisis on the border by Texas state leaders. Governor Abbott had some choice words for them. National Guardsmen on the border is nothing new but the numbers of those apprehended at the border in recent months are at a level not previously seen.

“Congress is a group of reprobates for not addressing a crisis on our border,” said Abbott, who signed a 2020-21 state budget earlier this month that has $800 million earmarked for border security operations.

National Guard deployments at the Texas-Mexico border have become relatively common in recent years. President Donald Trump sent troops to the border in 2018 after saying Congress wasn’t acting on border security.

Trump’s two predecessors, Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Barack Obama, also temporarily sent guard troops to the border. Bush sent about 6,000 National Guard troops there in 2006. Obama deployed 1,200 in 2010.

And Abbott’s predecessor, Republican Rick Perry, deployed state guard units as tens of thousands of migrants from Central America began crossing illegally into Texas, mainly in the Rio Grande Valley.

It may not surprise you to know that Texas Democrats object to the additional troops being deployed to the border.

“Deploying 1,000 new troops to the border is reckless, unnecessary, and further serves to harm our relationships with our strategic allies in Central America and Mexico,” said Gilberto Hinojosa, chairman of the Texas Democratic Party. “Trump, Abbott, Patrick, and Texas Republicans continue to demonize our border communities with their actions and rhetoric while pushing forth policies that will upend our border families’ entire way of life. Deploying new troops to the border solves nothing.”

Hinojosa called for immigration reform and for working with Central American countries to tackle the extreme poverty and violence that leads people to migrate to the United States.

Rep. Rafael Anchia, a Dallas Democrat who leads the Mexican American Legislative Caucus, said in a prepared statement that he welcomed “a shift that recognizes a need for humanitarian assistance and keeping trade flowing with our neighbors to the south.”

“Last summer, we saw the Trump Administration open a ‘tent city’ in an attempt to circumvent the care provided to migrant children in their custody,” Anchia said. “We will not accept a repeat. It’s the duty of the Texas Legislature and all levels of government to ensure that the highest levels of care and standards are followed in every detention center operating in Texas.”

The troops will assist federal immigration authorities at ports of entry. New holding facilities will open in the coming weeks in the Rio Grande Valley and El Paso. Governor Abbott wants Congress to increase funding for Border Patrol handling the influx of asylum seekers. He is particularly concerned about the safety and well-being of the children being brought over the border.

“Every child that’s not being taken care of adequately at the border, Congress is an accomplice to any harm they suffer,” Abbott said.

State Democrats may complain about the actions of the governor but they offer no solutions. The open borders crowd never does much more than criticize those who are working on the problems as they present themselves. Securing the border is not ethnic cleansing and the detention centers are not concentration camps. Catch and release is not a sustainable solution. The flow of those who attempt to enter the U.S. illegally must be stopped.
