from – Washington Examiner – by Jacqueline Klimas

Retired Gen. James Mattis said Thursday that he does not believe the U.S. military is strong enough to deter Russia and China.

The Enemy IS within and it starts with the corrupt news media brainwashing our citizens. Can America be saved or is it too late already considering our $20 billion dollar debt accrued at the hands of the Democrats.

Well!!! Welcome to the Trump Administration. Brutal truth from our new Secretary of Defense (not yet confirmed). Finally, we hear the stark, unvarnished truth about the current state of our Department of Defense and its capabilities. Downsizing our DOD by roughly one-third of its manpower and military hardware, failure to recapitalize our entire defense hardware fleets for the last 25 years, and fighting a war for roughly 15 consecutive years did have a massive cost to our Defense Department’s ability to protect our people, our culture, and our land space. For the last 8 years, the American public was deceived by Trump’s predecessor when we were told that our military was the strongest it had ever been and could defend against all foreign enemies. It was a bald-faced lie, and we Cold War vets (retired Lt Col, USAF) knew it to be a lie. Now, the truth is out and the American public needs to take heed. As for the country’s new leadership come Friday–Great Start and Amen!!!!!!

It’s too bad every American who cares about our country hasn’t gotten AND watched “The Enemies Within” being the third installment of the
“Agenda” series. This totally left me cold with shock, awe and wisdom. The first two: “Agenda” and “Agenda 2” by a former congressman are
in themselves stunning, but this third one is incredible. Should you order it, get it and watch it, at least twice, I’d seriously suggest you better
be sitting down & then SHARE IT with other more than concerned true Americans & watch *their* reaction(s).

Profoundly sad is the fact I’ve heard NO advertising of this on ANY of the conservative talk shows or here on AMAC which would make a
magnificent magazine article. Respectfully submitted ………………….

Well,  Gen. James Mattis, you can thank obama for dumbing down our military, weakening it to the core, whittling down the budget for national defense over the last 8 yrs, while killing morale & treating our troops like dirt. Now he can hold his own damn umbrella. He will go down in history as the only one who treated our military with so much disrespect it’s shameful.
May God Bless President Trump, and Vice President Pence. They have “a lot” of obama’s messes to clean up! And at least they love our country and her people…

The Russians, Chinese and Muslims are all running loose now comfortable with the knowledge that Barack Obama has virtually destroyed OUR military. They are no longer afraid of us.

What’s worse, what few friends we still have left after Obama’s 8 years know that.

Did that come about because Obama was stupid? Ignorant? Incompetent?

NO. He knew exactly what he was doing and why. It was his mission to take us down from withing and he has done a wonderful job.

It will take time and a lot of money to fix the damage. Time we don’t have and money no longer exists after Obama doubled our national debt and downgraded our credit rating not once but twice.

Yes, he knew what he was doing and deserves to tried for treason for it!

Yes, it needs to happen, but until RINO’s like McCain are gone, too, it’s not going to happen!
