Bernie Sanders Reaches a New Level of Depravity

I’m not sure calling those pushing climate hysteria a cult is enough anymore. We are at the full blown human sacrifice stage.

Last night, CNN decided it’d be a good idea to a seven hour long “town hall” on the “climate crisis,” because the liberal cable network has basically become a full blown apparatchik of the DNC. While the ratings weren’t good (I’ll have a piece on that later tonight), what we saw were many clips end up viral because of just how insane they are.

While others were arguing over straws and eating meat, Sanders said hold my beer and gave this “solution” to climate change.

I almost feel bad for joking about this because it’s not really a laughing matter. This is a level of depravity that you’d expect to see in 1930s Nazi Germany. It’s sick, sick stuff that should be immediately disqualifying.

The idea that people must be culled in order to “save the environment” is not a new one. It has its roots in eugenics and the ridiculous musings of Malthusian theory, which has been proven be absolute horse crap over the decades. The planet is not nearing peak population, nor resource use. There is simply no science to back up such craziness.

But with climate change, that kind of garbage has seen a new rise because it’s no longer about resources for these people. Now they claim it’s about too many people emitting carbon. Climate change has went from just being overwrought insanity to a death cult.

You want to know why I don’t care much about Trump’s tweets? Why his decade old affairs are something most conservatives look past? Because this is the alternative. The Democrat party has gone absolutely insane and they are only getting worse. Trump can tweet every five minutes for the rest of his life if it means someone like Sanders is denied power.

Sitting on the sidelines may be acceptable to some, but for others, it’s simply not. This stuff has to be combated head on. It can only be defeated with counter votes, not just abstaining, because the left’s base is energized. Their view of abortion and climate change is heading in a very, very dark direction.

There’s a certain conservative group that likes to make fun of the Flight 93 election reasoning, but I’d love to hear how they plan to stop this in lieu of keeping Republicans in power. Shouting on Twitter isn’t going to do it. Just as bad, no major media has pushed back on what Sanders said, largely because they agree with him.

Don’t be fooled either. Sanders is not the only Democrat candidate who thinks this way. Every major candidate has gone on record against the Hyde amendment and rescinding the Mexico City policy (which bans taxpayer funded abortions in foreign countries). They all want this. The question is, will Republicans join together to stop it or will we keep sniping about irrelevancy.

Chicago Mayor Tells Sen. Ted Cruz to Shut up About Her City’s Gun Problem, but He’s Not Backing Down

As Alex Parker wrote Tuesday, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) took to the Twitter machine to angrily tell Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to shut up about Chicago’s well-documented gun problem earlier this week. In the process, she also tried to blame the city’s gun violence epidemic not on the Democrats who have run the city into the ground, but on … pro-gun rights Republicans.

To briefly recap, here’s what Lightfoot tweeted in response to a Twitter post from Cruz on Labor Day in which he referenced Chicago’s long history of gun violence as evidence that gun control doesn’t work:

Unfortunately for Mayor Lightfoot, Cruz didn’t back down, and later explained his position to her in a Twitter thread:

Cruz also retweeted this tweet from talk show host Joe Pagliarulo, who correctly pointed out that Lightfoot was completely missing the point:

Lightfoot responded by demanding Cruz get Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to pass an assault weapons ban and universal background checks. She also invited him to take a tour of Chicago with her in order to get him to stop the “dishonest use of our city as a cheap symbol to cover for the GOP’s unwillingness to protect their constituents.”

Cruz didn’t take the bait:

Though the Senator didn’t take the Mayor up on her offer to tour Chicago, he did agree to meet with actress/hacktivist Alyssa Milano to discuss gun rights after schooling her on the correlation between the Bible and the right to use a gun for self-defense.

Stay tuned.

Black Republican Terrence K. Williams Goes Off On Debra Messing

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-1-620x481 Black Republican Terrence K. Williams Goes Off On Debra Messing Terrence K. Williams republicans racism Politics Hollywood Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats debra messing black community Allow Media Exception 2020

The tired and abused lie that the Republican Party is a party of racism and keeping minorities down has been disproven so many times that it’s a wonder it still thrives. This is, in part, thanks to a media that keeps the lie fresh in the minds of the public, and even makes any minuscule thing out to be a grand racist act.

Take, for instance, the Baltimore controversy where President Donald Trump highlighted the rat and trash infestation the city suffered from. While Democrats made carefully shot speeches about how Trump and Republicans are racist, Trump supporters went down to Baltimore to help clean it up.

(READ: Trump Supporters Clean Up West Baltimore As Thankful Residents Defy Media Narrative)

Hollywood celebrities are also in on the narrative, too. Debra Messing, one of Hollywood’s most vocal anti-Trump twitter accounts, has gone so far as to say that Trump is a white supremacist who is attempting to suppress “POC” and Jewish peoples. Funny enough, the only person insulting black Americans is Debra Messing.

The actress, in a now-deleted tweet, said “THANK YOU #Alabama” last Saturday in response to a tweet of a Baptist church in Birmingham that displayed a sign reading: “A black vote for Trump is mental illness.”

Terrence K. Williams, a black Republican, became upset at Messing for this incredibly racist remark that essentially put black voters into a column of either belonging to Democrats or being mentally unfit.

In a video where he was clearly very angry, Williams told Messing that, as a black man, he can think for himself and that the Democrat party doesn’t own him. He also made it clear that Messing was out of line for suggesting Hollywood players voting for Trump should be put on a blacklist.

“Why are you targeting innocent Americans? What is wrong with a bunch of American citizens supporting the President of the United States of America. What is wrong with that?”

“You have lost your ever-lasting mind,” said Williams.

Messing replied to Williams saying she regretted promoting the Alabama sign, but that Trump was a white supremacist targeting people of color and Jews. She then also said that she has never supported a blacklist.

This is demonstrably false. As I wrote on yesterday, Messing and her “Will and Grace” co-star Erick McCormack clearly supported the idea of a Hollywood blacklist as they asked for The Hollywood Reporter to compile a list of people going in and out of a Trump fundraiser in Beverly Hills so that “the rest of us” know not to work with them again.

Messing and McCormack attempted to do some damage control by denying that they’re to create a blacklist without providing any real defense of it, instead, saying she has a right to not work with people. She’s not wrong, but as McCormack pointed out, the list was intended for public release so that everyone else in Hollywood would know to avoid working with them.

That’s called a blacklist.

(READ: Debra Messing Thinks You’re Stupid)

Williams wasn’t done. In response to Messing trying to lazily convince Williams that Trump hated minorities and Jewish people, Williams posted a video an entire room filled with black Republicans, many of them wearing MAGA hats.

Messing, like Alyssa Milano and Bette Midler, all fire from the hip when it comes to their hatred of Republicans and Donald Trump, often tweeting before they think. Middler was recently in hot water for a racist moment similar to Messing. Seeing black people in the background of a shot from a Trump rally, Middler dismissed them as paid actors and referred to them as a “blackground.”

Middler’s stereotyping black Americans as Democrat voters made many black Americans very angry, and she soon deleted the tweet.

All of this stems from the idea that the black community is somehow owned by the Democrat party, with many Democrats making the argument that a minority voting for a Republican is voting against their self-interest. As such, many black Republicans and libertarians have been labeled as “Uncle Tom” or “House Ni****s” by the left.

Democrats seem to forget that black people are individuals, not a voting bloc to be claimed.

Julian Castro Saves the World, One Psychotic Problem at a Time. Previously: Pregnant Men; This Week: Racist White Weather

You know what the most terrible kind of environmental horror is? The racist kind.

And you know how to make racism worse? Make it environmental.

I can barely believe those two things can even go together. Someone needs do somethin’.

I cherish my sigh of relief, knowing Julián “Men need to have taxpayer-funded abortions” Castro has volunteered.

Shew.

During CNN’s town hall Wednesday, a male nurse in the audience claimed his patients “suffer the most from climate change” as victims of “environmental racism.”

Fortunately, Julián was already all too familiar with the malady. So he jumped right in.

With dumbness.

And — as a bonus — he included the 1940’s viewpoint that there are only two races: white and non-white (currently “people of color”).

“I know that too often times it’s people who are poor, communities of color, who take the brunt of storms that are getting more frequent and more powerful.”

So if a Chinese guy moves into a white Texas neighborhood, his house will be targeted by the cyclone? What a racist jerk of a tornado.

Thankfully, that poor Saginaw soul — a very distant relative of a native Beijinger — can rest easy.

Say it, Julián:

“My plan actually calls for new civil rights legislation to be able to address environmental injustice.”

YES!!!!

And woe unto that afflicted Asian, by the way, if he might also be impregnated through his penis and need an abortion. Oh, wait — Julian’s got him there, too!

Castro also let everyone know he can “connect the dots to places like Flint, Michigan,” and he’s intent upon giving folks the “tools to fight back” where the “tremendous injustice” of environmental racism is concerned.

God Bless Julián Castro — a great American. And a man who seems fiercely determined to stay humble by never, ever becoming the President of the United States.

Joe Biden Just Lost Any Claim to Being a Moderate With His Embrace of the Green New Deal

Westlake Legal Group joe-biden-620x349 Joe Biden Just Lost Any Claim to Being a Moderate With His Embrace of the Green New Deal socialism Politics Joe Biden Green New Deal Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 2020

We hear a lot about former VP and 2020 candidate Joe Biden’s “electability.” This so-called electability stems from the idea that Biden is a return to a more moderate Democratic party, and away from the infection of radicalism that has seized it.

But anyone who was leaning on Biden for centrism is gravely mistaken, and it’s proven with his nod toward Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal.” In fact, Biden not only thinks it doesn’t go too far, it doesn’t go far enough, according to the Daily Wire:

Biden made the remarks during a CNN town hall event on climate change that was set up in a way that sensationalized the issue with hysterical claims and featured numerous false claims from candidates.

“Do you think it goes too far?” CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked Biden about the Green New Deal. “Is it unrealistic promising too much?”

“No, no it’s not,” Biden responded.

Biden continued by suggesting that the plan actually did not go far enough in terms of laying out specifics for how it would be implemented.

The problem is that the “Green New Deal” is essentially a socialist takeover of the United States more than it is a climate bill. It calls for a massive restructuring of America’s infrastructure that is, frankly, so unrealistic that even Democrats were laughing at it. Even environmental groups are distancing themselves.

To this day, Ocasio-Cortez still hasn’t told us how we’re going to pay for it. What’s more, AOC herself has more or less admitted that it’s an avenue to a social justice driven society and the advancement of its agendas. What she’s not telling you is that her plan would also require a lot of materials we can only get from places like Russia and China, who would indebt us deeply that they’d essentially own us.

Embracing any of this isn’t a sign of centrism. This is radicalism, plain and simple. If Biden is embracing this kind of thing and even saying it doesn’t go far enough, then Democrats would do well to distance themselves from Biden as fast as they possibly can.

At this point, America has two options in 2020. It’s either Donald Trump or socialism. There doesn’t seem to be an option outside of these two.

Daily Beast: The opponent Trump is increasingly worried about is…

Westlake Legal Group ew Daily Beast: The opponent Trump is increasingly worried about is… Trump The Blog sanders populist Native American Elizabeth Warren democrats biden

There’s only one Democrat who’s risen steadily in the polls since summer began, only one who’s getting buzz for the enthusiasm with which she’s received at events. She also happens to be running on populism, muscling in on Trump’s pitch to the working class.

Coincidentally, she’s also the member of the Democratic field who’s taken the hardest shots from Trump to date. Except they haven’t seemed to hurt her much.

Go figure that a president who places great stock in crowd energy, in draining the swamp, and in his own ability to tear down opponents is a little nervous about the rise of Elizabeth Warren.

The frustration Republicans are beginning to feel about Warren’s non-stick nature was picked up repeatedly in interviews with 10 Republicans, including Trump campaign and White House officials, associates of the president, and other GOP operatives with knowledge of the situation. These sources stressed that the anti-Warren effort within GOP circles hadn’t fallen off since the DNA snafu. Indeed, everyone from officials on Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign, to the Republican National Committee, to a select group of opposition researchers have been sifting through her record in search of vulnerabilities. But with few punches landing, the worry is that Trump may have already taken his best shot, and that Warren will end up looking increasingly formidable for having bounced back.

“Sure the Republican base will ultimately loathe Warren, but she doesn’t inspire the same kind of historic vitriol that Hillary Clinton did,” a separate Republican strategist said. “That, combined with fact that SCOTUS isn’t on the line as it was in ’16, and remembering that Trump needed the perfect inside straight to barely win last time, and any Democrat is going to be tough to beat, Warren included.”…

According to three people who have spoken to Trump about Warren over the past two months, the president has specifically highlighted what he views as her surprising political and populist talents during the Democratic primary, and has told multiple advisers and associates that he hears she could be “tougher” in a general election than many initially expected. One of these sources said Trump asked the room if they thought Warren was a “fighter.”

One Republican told the Beast that right-wing think tanks may have been caught flat-footed by the sheer number of policy plans Warren has introduced, unable to analyze and critique them as quickly as she’s rolling them out. That assumes, of course, that (a) anyone on either side cares what think tanks say and (b) a conservative critique of the cost of Warren’s agenda would resonate with centrist Dems. Would it? How many Biden fans are with him because they worry about the budget and how many are with him simply because he’s familiar and seems electable?

There isn’t much Trump or the GOP can do to hurt Warren right now. If anything, Trump attacking her regularly again would gift-wrap a talking point for her that she’s the candidate whom he really fears, which would be catnip to Democratic voters. If anyone’s going to take Warren down, it’ll be her rivals in the primary. That’s coming soon, of necessity — if they don’t start chipping away at her, she might just run away with this thing.

Aides to three rival candidates confirmed in interviews they’re revving up opposition research on Warren in preparation for the next debate on Sept. 12. Still others privately complained she’s gotten fawning treatment in the media as she unveiled a litany of ambitious plans without being pressed on where the money would come from to pay for them…

“She’s promised about $50 trillion worth of benefits in the last 30 days. Her economics are fraud and at some point someone is going to point that out. She’s a multimillionaire professor at Harvard. She can’t rail against the 1 percent — she is one of the 1 percent,” [Biden organizer Dick] Harpootlian said…

In an interview, [Harris advisor Bakari] Sellers complained that Harris has battled sexism, racism “and the Russians” while others in the race, including Warren, have had an easier ride, including on the debate stage.

Mm yeah, that’s the good stuff. Sellers’s point in particular may resonate: Although the latest poll of South Carolina had Warren inching into second place, she’s a distant second due to how poorly she performs with black Democrats there. Among white SC Democrats Warren actually leads the field with 26 percent; among blacks, who are a majority of the primary electorate, she’s in fourth behind Biden, Harris, and even Bernie Sanders. Winning Iowa and New Hampshire would do *a lot* to change that for her next year, but maybe not quite enough to completely erase Biden’s advantage in the state. Doesn’t mean she won’t be the nominee but it does mean that the primaries could go on much longer than she’s hoping and end up with black Democrats no more enthused to turn out for her in the general election than they were for Hillary.

The X-factor is Bernie. For all the hype about Warren’s surge, and despite the narrative that she’s pulling away voters from Sanders, his own numbers have barely budged this summer. He was at 17.0 percent on June 5, when her rise began. Three months later, she’s gained nearly 10 full points in the average while he’s lost less than one, landing at 16.1 percent. Warren isn’t cannibalizing longstanding Bernie voters — but she is almost certainly depriving him of undecideds who are in the market for a progressive candidate. What’s he going to do about it? Politico notes in the story above that he and Warren have had a nonaggression pact thus far, with neither wanting to antagonize the other’s base by attacking their favorite. Warren voters are potential Bernie voters, after all, and vice versa. Some progressives think the nonaggression pact should be maintained no matter what, in the belief that nominating Sanders *or* Warren is what’s most important for progressivism.

But how does Bernie feel about that? If he agrees that it’s essential to have a progressive nominee, even if that comes at the cost of his own defeat, then the way forward is clear. He should drop out, endorse Warren, and campaign aggressively for her. There’s a risk of backfire in that since some Sanders fans have Biden as their second choice but an aggressive effort by Bernie to steer them towards Warren would doubtless pay off with some. At the core of Sanders’s ideological base, though, is the belief that he alone can rescue America from its capitalist excesses. He’s the only candidate with the stones to label himself a socialist, the only one to refuse to call himself a Democrat (until recently). Warren and Sanders may be indistinguishable to right-wing eyes but they certainly aren’t to left-wing ones, in which case how can Bernie pass on the opportunity to attack her? He owes it to the Cause to try to convince her voters that she simply won’t deliver on her promises like he will — but if he does that, he risks an embittered progressive schism that’ll benefit Biden long-term. What does he do?

This Feb. 28, 2018 photo released by ABC shows Meghan McCain on the set of “The View,” in New York. McCain brings a feisty spirit to the conservative commentator role where predecessors frequently seemed overmatched and overlooked. (Lou Rocco/ABC via AP)

The ladies of ABC’s “The View” were back from summer break on Tuesday and it didn’t take long for the fireworks to start as a discussion of mass shootings and gun rights got underway.

CBS News reports on what co-host Meghan McCain said in response to her colleagues’ suggestions that gun confiscation programs like the one 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke proposed were the way to go:

During the show, co-host Whoopi Goldberg pointed out the suspect in the shooting was able to purchase his assault-style rifle through a “loophole.” As co-host Sunny Hostin pinned blame on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s lack of action on any assault weapons legislation, McCain chimed in the debate as “the chick on the panel that spent most of her break shooting.”

“This is a ground-level issue for me,” she said, targeting 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s mandatory buyback plan. “If you’re going to be a gun-grabber, you don’t get my vote, period. We got to have a different conversation.”

Longtime host Joy Behar brought up the federal assault weapons ban in 1994 under former President Bill Clinton. “If you keeping rooting for Republicans, you’re going to get nothing done.”

“The AR-15 is by far the most popular gun in America, by far,” McCain said. “I was just in the middle of nowhere Wyoming, if you’re talking about taking people’s guns from them, there’s going to be a lot of violence.”

“But they lived without them for many years during the ban,” Behar replied.

“I’m not living without guns,” McCain responded. “It’s just that simple!”

Watch the segment below:

Eric Swalwell (D-CA) who, fresh off of mocking “good guys with guns” after Saturday’s Odessa/Midland mass shooting, lied about McCain’s position in an attempt to score cool points on social media:

She didn’t “threaten violence.” She predicted there would be violence. Big difference. Even though Swalwell has proven to be a miserable failure when it comes to debating female Second Amendment supporters in the past, he should at least try to get the basic facts right in the future.

Disgraced attorney and fraud Michael Avenatti commented on McCain’s remarks as well in a desperate attempt to deflect from his serious shortcomings:

Some even called for McCain’s removal from the show over her remarks.

But as 2nd Amendment activist Stephen Gutowski notes, liberals have a serious problem with the truth – because McCain wasn’t wrong:

Tucker Carlson made a similar argument to McCain’s on his program Tuesday night, noting that there was no such thing as a “gun buyback”:

“Now you will hear propagandists, and you often do hear propagandists, describe that as a ‘gun buyback.’ But that’s nonsense, of course,” Mr. Carlson said. “Americans didn’t buy their guns from the government in the first place. They’re not buying them back. This is gun confiscation. It’s nothing but that.”

“So, this is — what you’re calling for is civil war. What you’re calling for is an incitement to violence. It’s something – I wouldn’t want to live here when that happened, would you?” Mr. Carlson said later in the segment.

[…]

“He’s going to confiscate firearms from tens of millions of law-abiding Americans whether it works or not, and he doesn’t care what you think about it,” Mr. Carlson said.

In response to all of this, here was the garbage take from the far left moonbats at Media Matters, an organization that exists purely to destroy Fox News and conservative media so only liberal viewpoints are allowed:

Conservative pundits floating violent reprisals as a response to gun safety legislation are echoing far-right extremist and militia rhetoric

It’s always fascinating to me watching unhinged liberals who have called for “revolutions” when they lose elections, who threaten to violently “take to the streets” in response to legislation they don’t like, who urge supporters to “get in the faces” of Republicans because Orange Man Bad, defend violent Antifa thugs, and who were perfectly content with the militant tactics of Occupy Wall Street as a way of forcing comformity complain when conservatives talk about what might happen in response if the government starts forcibly taking away guns that they legally own.

Do they even listen to themselves?

Media Cancel James Mattis After They Learn His Book Criticizes the Wrong President

Westlake Legal Group ap-james-mattis-steely-gaze-620x411 Media Cancel James Mattis After They Learn His Book Criticizes the Wrong President the washington post The Atlantic resistance Politics media bias Mad Dog James Mattis Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Eric Holder donald trump democrats Barack Obama

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis listens to a question about Russia from the media at the Pentagon, Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017, in Washington. Senior American and Russian military leaders met for an unprecedented, face-to-face session somewhere in the Middle East this week to discuss the growing tensions in the competing battles to retake one of the remaining Islamic State strongholds in Syria. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon)

When it comes to foreign policy, the President has the final say, no matter how strongly his advisors feel. The media didn’t seem to understand this and constantly portrayed any decision Trump made as dangerous and illegitimate. Somehow, the world hasn’t gone into a nuclear meltdown though. It’s almost like they have no idea what they are talking about?

One such decision was Trump wanting to pull out of Syria. It was enough that James “Mad Dog” Mattis resigned over it. That’s fair. If he couldn’t do the job anymore, I’m not going to criticize him for deciding to move on. The irony of the entire situation is that Democrats, who cheered Obama’s disastrous pull-out from Iraq, suddenly become the hawkiest of war hawks, but I digress.

The current story is that Mattis is writing his memoir and that got the media press corp really excited. You see, because Mattis left on rocky terms from the Trump adminiatration, including a fairly forward resignation letter, the expectation was that he was going to blast Trump.

So you got headlines like The Man Who Couldn’t Take It Anymore from The Atlantic and The Man Trump Wishes He Were from The New York Times. You could almost see the foam forming around their collective mouths. They were about to get another tell all they could fluff for weeks, and if that meant rehabilitating a person they used to hate in James Mattis, then that was a price they were willing to pay.

Then something happened. While Mattis’ book laid into a President, it just so happened to be the wrong President in the media’s eyes. That would be Barack Obama.

The National Review provides some excerpts.

When the Arab Spring came to Egypt in 2011, “I thought we should use quiet diplomacy to urge inclusive government.” Obama instead called for Hosni Mubarak to resign. Mattis writes:

President Obama came out vocally against Mubarak, insisting that in Egypt, “we were on the right side of history.” Having read a bit of history and found that events, good and bad, had been “written” by both good and evil characters, I put little stock in the idea that history books yet to be written would somehow give yearning Arabs what they fervently desired today.

In the spring of 2011, Attorney General Eric Holder revealed an Iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador on U.S. soil. Mattis urged the White House to make the public case for reprisals against Tehran. He was rebuffed. “We treated an act of war as a law enforcement violation, jailing the low level courier.”

Obama was essentially willing to let Iran get away with anything to preserve his doomed nuclear deal. Mattis also points out his incredible naivete when it came to the Arab Spring, which turned out to be one of the worst things to happen to happen to the Middle East in regards to stability, as fundamentalist Muslims were further empowered.

Mattis was informed he would be relieved of command in December 2012. He writes:

I was leaving a region aflame and in disarray. The lack of an integrated regional strategy had left us adrift, and our friends confused. We were offering no leadership or direction. I left my post deeply disturbed that we had shaken our friends’ confidence and created vacuums that our adversaries would exploit.

The following year, Barack Obama failed to enforce his “red line” against Syrian dictator Bashar Assad’s use of chemical weapons against civilians. “This was a shot not heard around the world,” Mattis writes. He continues:

Old friends in NATO and in the Pacific registered dismay and incredulity that America’s reputation had been seriously weakened as a credible security partner. Within thirty-six hours, I received a phone call from a friendly Pacific-nation diplomat. “Well, Jim,” he said, “I guess we’re on our own with China.”

What is so ironic about all this is that the left, including their media mouthpieces, now constantly attack Trump for supposedly not supporting our allies or causing “confusion.” Yet, when Obama was President, you never heard a peep about that despite the fact that he was consistently selling our partner nations down the river for his own personal delusions and showing absolutely no salient strategy at all.

The Washington Examiner provides another piece from the book.

“While I fully endorse civilian control of the military, I would not surrender my independent judgment. In 2010, I argued strongly against pulling all our troops out of Iraq,” Mattis writes. (Earlier in the book, he recounts a discussion he had on the subject in Baghdad with Vice President Joe Biden, who was in charge of Iraq policy but “ignoring reality” and uninterested in the considered opinion of the general in charge of operations there.) “In 2011, I urged retaliation against Iran for plotting to blow up a restaurant in our nation’s capital. In 2012, I argued for retaining a small but capable contingent of troops in Afghanistan. Each step along the way, I argued for political clarity and offered options that gave the Commander in Chief a rheostat he could dial up or down to protect our nation.”

The commander in chief chose another option: fire the CENTCOM leader.

“In December 2012, I received an unauthorized phone call telling me that in an hour, the Pentagon would be announcing my relief,” Mattis writes. “I was leaving a region aflame and in disarray.”

Isn’t it odd that the media found no fault with how Mattis was dumped, only being given an hour before the Pentagon would relieve him, yet they lost their minds of Comey’s unceremonious firing? It’s almost like there’s bias there, and because Mattis didn’t end up hitting the “right” target, the excitement for his book vanished overnight. Worse, they are now attacking him.

USA Today ran with a story titled James Mattis Promotes a Book that Is Silent About Donald Trump. It’s a Disservice.

Mattis, who left the Pentagon last December after clashing with President Donald Trump over Syria policy, used the phrase in addressing U.S. troops in the field, reminding them of their duty as guardians of the nation’s nearly 250-year-old democracy.

It remains Mattis’ duty as well…

…But Mattis won’t tell us, though his book doesn’t shrink from criticizing past presidents such as George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Because if there’s anyone who knows about service and duty, it’s some “journalist” desperate for another dose of Trump bashing.

And just like that, Mattis is cancelled.

No doubt, one day Mattis will choose to talk about his time in the Trump White House. Until that time though, he can look forward to many more chastising editorials accusing him of letting his country down because he refuses to kneecap a current President. Whether you agreed with Mattis’ take on Syria or not, he did the right thing in stepping down and he’s doing the right thing now. None of this is a game. There are real stakes in the world and burning that down simply to give Joe Scarborough, Rachel Maddow, or whoever another hit to keep their TDS high going isn’t the priority.
