In service to our country, my wife and I lived most of our adult lives in foreign countries. As a result, we like to travel. As I write this article, we are not in a foreign land, but we are in one of our favorite places. We are on the island of Maui, in the state of Hawaii.
A few weeks ago, I wrote that fortress America was protected on the east side by the Atlantic Ocean, by Canada on the north side, by Mexico and the Gulf of Mexico on the southern side, and by the massive Pacific Ocean on our west coast. My presence in Hawaii has reminded me of the need to add an amendment to my previous comments. I failed to note that both Alaska and Hawaii, our 49th and 50th states, serve as early warning sentinels of an attack on the United States. With emerging reports declaring the existence of sonic missiles now in the military arsenals of at least one of our major enemies, I am unsure of just how much warning we would be afforded.
Adding to my overall concern for the continued existence of our great country as a constitution-based Federal Republic is the ineptness and obvious lack of cognitive skills on the part of Joe Biden, our in-name-only president. He is clearly a puppet controlled by a committee of Marxists and hard-core Democrats. The disastrous last 14 months have earned Biden some of the lowest ratings every assigned to a U.S. president.
With Biden clearly the owner of increasing inflation, the decreasing worth of the U.S. dollar, planned tax increases, having to beg other countries for oil and gas, flooding our country with illegal aliens, not supporting the U.S. Border Patrol, violating U.S. laws, ignoring Supreme Court rulings, defunding the police, nominating biased and unqualified individuals to cabinet level and other prominent government positions, uncalled for COVID-19-related mandates, the unnecessary closure of schools and masking of our children, the humiliating surrender and retreat from Afghanistan, loudly passing gas in front of dignitaries on a world stage during a televised event (yes, that is true), and the list goes on and on.
If the foregoing list of disasters and non-achievements do not concern you, let me ask you this question: How would you like to go to war with Russia, knowing that part of the war casualties and massive damage would be incurred on U.S. soil?
If you believe that can’t happen, then consider the fact that Biden’s overall ratings are in the toilet, and, when they are flushed, the Marxist Democrat Party goes down with him. The majority of current polls are already - and thankfully - indicating a landslide Republican victory in the November 2022 mid-term elections as Americans are rejecting the Marxist agenda and a puppet president. The Marxists’ only chance of holding on to power is to divert the public’s attention to something more pressing, like a war or the threat of war with Russia.
Neither Russia nor China respect or fear Biden nor do they fear our most senior military leaders who looked incompetent and foolish in their badly-botched withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. At the moment, it appears that Russia’s Vladimir Putin is enjoying making Joe Biden look foolish. I do not have enough information to make an educated guess as to what Russia will or will not do regarding Ukraine. It would not surprise me to see a Russian attack on Ukraine at the same time China makes its long anticipated attack on Taiwan. Do you really believe that Biden and the political generals in the Pentagon can effectively orchestrate a two-front war? Let’s hope that need does not surface.
Let me leave you with this glimmer of hope and a happy thought. After leading Biden and the crew of McHale’s Navy on a masterful chase and guessing game, it would not surprise me if Putin suddenly laughs and withdraws his troops from the Ukraine border. This could happen if NATO gives Russia assurances that Ukraine will not become a member of NATO. God Bless America!
