On Monday, May 10th, over 120 retired military flag officers encouraged Americans to get more politically involved, and to act against the fact that many people in this country are believing in socialism and Marxism. They went on to say that this country is in “deep peril” and under “tremendous assault” by those believers.
The retired officers wrote:
“Our Nation is in deep peril. We are in a fight for our survival as a Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding in 1776. The conflict is between supporters of Socialism and Marxism vs. supporters of Constitutional freedom and liberty,”
The officers went on to lambaste the 2020 election process and argued that election fairness would be destroyed and the Democrats will be allowed to remain in power forever if the Democrat House bill H.R. 1 and its Senate companion bill S. 1 are passed and put into effect.
The retired officers wrote:
“Without fair and honest elections that accurately reflect the ‘will of the people’ our Constitutional Republic is lost. Election integrity demands insuring there is one legal vote cast and counted per citizen.
Legal votes are identified by State Legislature’s approved controls using government IDs, verified signatures, etc.
“Today, many are calling such commonsense controls ‘racist’ in an attempt to avoid having fair and honest elections. Using racial terms to suppress proof of eligibility is itself a tyrannical intimidation tactic. Additionally, the ‘Rule of Law’ must be enforced in our election processes to ensure integrity.
The FBI and Supreme Court must act swiftly when election irregularities are surfaced and not ignore them as was done in 2020. Finally, H.R.1 & S.1, (if passed), would destroy election fairness and allow Democrats to forever remain in power violating our Constitution and ending our Representative Republic.”
Breitbart reported that they also slammed the Biden administration for acting in a “dictatorial manner” by bypassing Congress with more than 50 executive orders reversing Trump administration policies and blasted excessive lockdowns, school and business closures, and censorship of written and verbal expression as direct assaults on Americans’ fundamental rights.
The officers said:
“We must support and hold accountable politicians who will act to counter Socialism, Marxism and Progressivism, support our Constitutional Republic, and insist on fiscally responsible governing while focusing on all Americans, especially the middle class, not special interest or extremist groups which are used to divide us into warring factions.”

They also weighed in on national security issues from the southern border, China, and energy.
“Illegals are flooding our Country bringing high economic costs, crime, lowering wages, and illegal voting in some states. We must reestablish border controls and continue building the wall while supporting our dedicated border control personnel. Sovereign nations must have controlled borders,”
The officers called China “the greatest external threat to America”. They went on to say that the Biden administration is establishing cooperative relations with the Chinese Communist Party, and by doing such, it is encouraging the Chinese Communist Party to continue progress toward world domination, militarily, economically, politically and technologically.
“We must impose more sanctions and restrictions to impede their world domination goal and protect America’s interests,”
The officers also encouraged opening the Keystone Pipeline, and how it needs to regain energy independence.

They discussed that topic, saying:
“Stopping the Keystone Pipeline eliminates our recently established energy independence and causes us to be energy dependent on nations not friendly to us, while eliminating valuable US jobs. We must open the Keystone Pipeline and regain our energy independence for national security and economic reasons,”
They argued that the military should not be used as “political pawns” to protect the Capitol against a “non-existent threat,” and should not be forced to accept politically correct policies or critical race theory into the military at the expense of war fighting, Breitbart reported.
“We must support our Military and Vets; focus on war fighting, eliminate the corrosive infusion of Political Correctness into our military which damages morale and war fighting cohesion,”
The officers went on to denounce the chaos that is plaguing the streets of this country since the death of George Floyd, and asked that Americans support law enforcement officers.
According to reports, they insisted that district attorneys, courts, and the Justice Department enforce the law equally, fairly, and consistently toward all.
They also argued that the mental and physical condition of the Commander-in-Chief “cannot be ignored.”
The officers said:
“He must be able to quickly make accurate national security decisions involving life and limb anywhere, day or night,”

Former police chief: Cop-hating Joe Biden can’t even commemorate National Police Week without slamming police
May 10, 2021
The following editorial is written by a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.
WASHINGTON, DC- If you want to know why police officers across the country overwhelmingly supported President Trump over the feckless Joe Biden, look no further than Biden’s insulting statement “commemorating” National Police Week.
As police officers across the country continue to be used as target practice for violent thugs, Biden blamed cops for fueling “distrust” in minority communities during his proclamation declaring Peace Officers Memorial Day and National Police Week, Breitbart reported.
Color us “shocked.”
May 15 has been celebrated as Peace Officers Memorial Day for decades, while National Police Week typically sees ceremonies taking place in Washington, DC and across the country to remember the sacrifices made by police officers and their families across the United States.
On Saturday, Biden released a statement in which he claimed to express “gratitude for the selfless public servants who wear the badge,” but like a true law enforcement-hating left-wing hack, he made sure to qualify that statement by taking a direct slap at every man and woman who pins on the badge, as well as those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
As Steven Crowder would say, “What a piece of sh*t!”
Biden’s statement read:
“This year, we also recognized that in many of our communities, especially black and brown communities, there is a deep sense of distrust towards law enforcement; a distrust that has been exacerbated by the recent deaths of several black and brown people at the hands of law enforcement.
These deaths have resulted in a profound fear, trauma, pain and exhaustion for many black and brown Americans, and the resulting breakdown in trust between law enforcement and the communities they have sworn to protect and serve ultimately makes officers’ jobs harder and more dangerous as well.
“In order to rebuild that trust, our State, Local and Federal Government and law enforcement agencies must protect constitutional rights, ensure accountability for misconduct, and embrace policing that reflects community values and ensures community safety. These approaches benefit those who wear the badge and those who count on their protection.”
So, how do we respond to Biden’s insulting statement?
Not for nothing, Mr. “President,” but have you made a similar statement toward the thugs in cities across the United States who have been destroying those cities, attacking our citizens, and targeting those same police officers? Have you taken steps aside from platitudes to get the violence under control?
We remember last summer, as cities across the United States burned and as police officer after police officer was assaulted, some dying and some suffering career-ending injuries, you were silent.
It was only when it became politically expedient that you issued tepid statements and then blamed former President Trump for the violence being perpetrated by your voters.
Well guess what? Donald Trump is no longer president…you are. And still, cities such as Portland are seeing nightly riots, children are being gunned down on a regular basis in cities like Chicago and Philadelphia, and all you can do is parrot Black Lives Matter talking points.
To make matters worse, you have opened our borders to drug cartels and criminal gangs to prey upon American citizens, once again making the job of law enforcement more difficult.
So, what is your solution? Tie the hands of law enforcement, kowtow to the far-left neo-Marxists in your party who want to defund the police, eliminate qualified immunity, and basically remove any incentive for anyone to either become or remain a police officer. Maybe that’s the end game, who knows?
We have seen the talking points coming out of state-run media outlets such as the alphabet networks, CNN, MSNBC and of course state-run newspapers such as the Washington Post, the New York Times and others, telling us that “reform” may not be possible because there are too many “small agencies” in the United States.
What that sounds like to anyone who is paying attention is perhaps the federal government, already mad with power, would like to federalize all law enforcement. We’ve seen how well that has worked out for your political enemies, such as…oh.. Rudy Giuliani for example.
Meanwhile, your son…a perverted meth head escapes any scrutiny over what are clearly questionable documents on his laptop, including some which indicate human sex trafficking, possibly including minors. One can imagine that a federal police force…oh let’s call it the Gestapo would work out well for doing the bidding of the Democrat Party. Just look the other way when it comes to family members of Democrats committing criminal acts…or Democrats themselves.
It’s ironic that at the same time you are propping up violent left-wing groups, your administration, along with the Marxists in Congress are trying to defund and demoralize the police and take guns away from law-abiding citizens, possibly removing their only line of defense against your out-of-control criminals.
Add in the refusal of George Soros-funded district attorneys to DO THEIR JOB and this is a recipe for disaster. As fast as police officers arrest the criminals, your DAs let them out to offend again.
The fact that you chose to include Black Lives Matter talking points in a statement in which you are supposed to be honoring not only police officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice, but the mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, children, brothers and sisters they left behind is an insult.
More than that, it is evil. While most police officers always knew you didn’t support us, your tone-deaf statement confirms it.
We can imagine that on this upcoming Memorial Day, when we honor our fallen heroes who bravely served in our military, you will issue a similar statement and invoke, oh maybe the My Lai massacre in Vietnam or maybe excoriate the military for their participation in dropping the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Because of course, you have to placate your lunatic base, who hates the police, hates our military and hates everything that our United States stands for. Meanwhile, you lionize lifelong criminals…the list is long and notorious.
How refreshing it was over the past four years to have a commander in chief who respected our police officers and never would have thought to use the occasion of National Police Week to slam the very people the week is meant to commemorate.
In 2020, President Trump wrote:
“We must continue working toward a time when all people respect and understand the important work that law enforcement officers do,” he said. “Unfortunately, our law enforcement officers do not always receive the respect they deserve.”
Absolutely true, President Trump. Especially from the 46th “President” of the United States. To Joe Biden, hear this- we have as much respect for you as you do for us…NONE.
