  1. You can get lots of decorations just for being in or going someplace. He did get a bronze star right before he retired. He served in Iraq off and on as a JAG officer, probably at Air Force HQ there. They lumped his 3 or 4 annual training trips into sufficient reasoning to give him one. Annual training is the official name for what people call "summer camp." Generally it is two to three weeks, but could be a couple of weeks longer.
  2. I find this hard to believe that an insurance company would cancel a policy over someone's political statements. Do companies cancel policies if someone is arrested? same thing.
  3. Psychological Operations is defined as the use of information and mis-information to disrupt enemy forces' operations and support. as best I remember from my military training it does not call for use of force and attacking civilians. Incidentally, one of the organizers was a Psy-Ops officer from Ft. Bragg, NC. She resigned due to an earlier incident, but had not been discharged yet.
  4. Yes, JAG. When his parents died, he became guardian for his younger siblings. Joined the USAF to get medical coverage for them and then stayed in reserves.
  5. DOD is the largest bureaucracy in the US government and probably in the world. The number of high ranking officers and civilians is astronomical.
  6. Hey, he's a decorated Air Force Reserve colonel. But I agree with you.
  7. It is sad that Trump, the Republicans and their enablers and supporters have brought America to this. The same is probably happening at many, if not all, state capitals.
  8. But will Trump pay his bills?
  9. Space Farce to spend many billions more. Great news for American taxpayers. Redstone Arsenal is a US ARMY post for the Army missile and affiliated programs. This is interesting since Space Farce is part of US Air Force. Of course, there are many joint use bases in US military.
  10. Could be wrong (have been before), but I doubt either one of these really has a political future in US. They might could win in a heavily gerrymandered GOPer district, but not a statewide, much less national election.
  11. Goods times in the Trumperbunker.
  12. Probably be better if none of the Trump family attended as they would get too much media attention.
  13. I didn't say he was sincere, just that he made a good speech for a change. Obviously somebody wrote it for him and his "advisors" coerced him into not deviating from it. I don't think he can influence McConnell at this point and probably not too many other GOP senators. I don't think asylum is on the table in Trump's mind. As for his businesses, I see very few reputable companies doing business with him in the future. His personal and corporate financial failures are coming to light and that alone will cause them to back away.
  14. Bloomberg News had a very informative report on Trump's Tariff war with China. Us lost across the board. China did not lower their prices, so American consumers paid 100% of the tariffs. American companies using Chinese components had to raise their prices losing out to competitors in other countries. American companies in China did not return to USA, but instead stayed in China. China developed closer relationships with other countries, particularly in Asia displacing the US. Add in the billions of borrowed money the government had to give to farmers and others. Chinese manufactur

  16. Just watched Trump's well scripted speech. Probably best one he ever made, but too little, too late. Should have said it two weeks ago if not after the election. Bet it was hard for him to not go off script and now he can't go back and use Twitter, etc. to counter what he said. He did not actually recognize the insurrection for what it was not take any blame for it. He did not acknowledge that Joe Biden was elected in a fair and legal manner. But he did tell his people to not do it anymore. Will they believe him? Will they believe he is sincere? Time will tell.
  17. Rep. Tim Rice is from the Myrtle Beach district in S.C. It is very pro-Trump.
  18. 20,000 National Guard troops planned for the inauguration. And the will be armed. Hopefully they will have ammo as well. Planning is taking into consideration leaving sufficient Guard troops available to each state capital. Still say there should be Active Duty Soldiers and Marines there as well. Of course, the Guard is supposedly better trained in how to handle civil disobedience, riots, demonstrations and so forth.
  19. I'm sure there are a lot of Republicans who agree with Chertoff - skip the inauguration.
  20. MI AG will probably lose, but lawyers will make a lot of money in the mean time.
  21. And 10 Republicans voted for impeachment. Impeached twice for a one term president - now there is a record.
  22. Unfortunately it is endemic to Americans in general - all political parties, races, genders, age groups, etc.
  23. 10 Republicans voted for impeachment. Not only impeached twice, but did it as a one term president.
  24. 10 Republicans voted for impeachment. Trump now becomes the only president ever impeached TWICE - and a one term president at that. He can make a new fake Time magazine cover of that.
  25. I really dislike posts such as this. There is no there to it. Abramson tweets something twice, but there is NO "analysis" and only "thread" is more tweets.
