Hello again to all you Vets in the Fight, this is David Miller with your weekly Special Operations Speaks Vets in the Fight SITREP.
Well, here we go again. Midterms. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. When we cut through all the clutter, the blue wave, the red wave…whatever, the fundamental point is that midterms are always important. Important to the citizens and important specifically to the sitting president. Important to us, the people whom the Constitution identifies as those from whom the government derives its just powers. Government must have the consent of the governed. Obviously, a large part of this is direct participation: voting, running for office and holding those in office accountable.
That accountability extends to how our elected officials keep the deep administrative state in bounds; a distinct shortcoming that has proved insidious to the Republic.
The sitting president also follows midterm elections very closely if he cares at all about continuing his agenda. Unless, of course, he tramples the Constitution underfoot and has a pen and a phone at the ready to pronounce edicts to his subjects from the throne room, er, I mean the Oval Office. Having a majority in the Senate and House is no guarantee that the right things will get pushed through, but it sure helps. Especially if the public stays on the case of those in office to let them know we are watching and listening. We make life much easier on ourselves if we put the right people in office in the first place. Again, no guarantees they won’t be lured into the rocky shores of corruption by the siren’s tony Capitol Hill song, but we can only take them at their word. If they turn away from their promises, we throw the bums out, with decisiveness.
This leads us to a couple of candidates we would like you to know about, if you don’t already. We offer these two fine men for your consideration in the upcoming primaries held in MO on August 8th. We recommend a visit to their sites and choose as your research and conscience leads you. Special Operations Speaks applauds and encourages both candidates, each a sound Vet in the Fight.
Courtland Sykes: Mr. Sykes joined the U.S. Navy following the September 11, 2001 attacks and served as an intelligence analyst with the, Navy Special Warfare Unit 3, and the Defense Intelligence Agency. He is running for U.S. Senate for Missouri. We believe Mr. Sykes’ positions on gun control, immigration, the border wall and the military are what America needs in Washington and are in keeping with the Founders’ original intent. He is also pro-life and has pledged a two-term limit of service, a rarity in today’s political careerist environment. Please go to https://sykesforsenate2018.com/ and find out for yourself.
Next is LTC (Ret) Tony Monetti. LTC Monetti spent over twenty years in decorated military service. He flew a B-52 to destroy infrastructure in Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. He later joined elite airmen to pilot the then-new B-2 Stealth bomber in global combat operations. Along with his wife Penny, Monetti founded Big Brothers Big Sisters of Johnson County, Mo., started a successful Italian restaurant and, after being recalled to active duty and serving for an additional three years, accepted the University of Central Missouri’s invitation to serve as Assistant Dean of Aviation. He stands for core conservative values: The Constitution and Rule of Law, Immigration reform, a strong economy, religious rights and, of course, the right to own and carry guns. Special Operations Speaks recommends that you visit his site, http://monetti4senate.com/ to help with your decision making.
Choices to be made, for sure. But one choice is abundantly clear: Claire McCaskill must go. Now. Freedomworks gives her a lifetime conservative score of just 14%, and 23% during the 115th Congress, lower even than Bernie Sanders! Missouri deserves much, much better. Go and vote!
Lastly, Dinesh D’Souza is back again with another myth- shattering, bare-knuckled look at the progressive left with “Death of a Nation” which opened last night across the U.S. Not since 1860 have the Democrats so fanatically refused to accept the result of a free election. Their target then was Lincoln. They smeared him, went to war to defeat him. In the end, they assassinated him.
Now the target of the Democrats is President Trump and his supporters. The Left calls us racists, white supremacists and fascists, charges used to justify discrediting us “by any means necessary.”
But which is the party of the slave plantation, white supremacy, that praised fascist dictators and shaped their genocidal policies and was in turn praised by them?
Which is the party of racism today?
