In order to establish my credibility, expertise, and truth detecting abilities regarding the following post, let me reiterate, I’m a bus driver. People, whose daily existence depends solely on their innate ability to deceive, lie to me every day in a vain attempt to avoid paying theirfare share. We call them passengers.
Now for the post:
Everybody always says it: I hate to tell you that I told you so but— and then they go on telling you. Of course, it’s a blatant lie. If they hated to tell you something, they wouldn’t, and that would be the end it. That said. I’m here to break with tradition and pretense; I’m going to publicly relish and admire my prescient abilities by proclaiming
I Love to Say I Told You So.
Check out my post The Tail is Wagging the Dog. It’s a little long but it has a big picture that takes up a lot of space. It’s one of my more important posts given the situation our military leadership is in today. And make no mistake; it is our military, not the leadership’s. This is an excerpt to whet your appetite.
“General Milley-mouse is the Chairman JCOS and as such, is the man, the last man in the military hierarchy with the responsibility to put himself between danger and the American people. Somewhere along his career path, he forgot that he’s a soldier and became a politician. When President Biden ordered a full-scale retreat from Afghanistan prior to securing the safety of our American citizens and allies, Gen. Mouse had a duty to say NO. I will not give that order. At that moment, while not risking life or limb, Gen. Milley would have become a national hero. But because his career is more important to him than his duty, he became what he is today.“
So here’s the I Told You So part. According to published reports, and this includes some liberal-leaning publications, General (Milley) Mouse found it necessary to contact his counterpart in China and discuss a preemptive (against the US), cowardly, and treasonous act. Imagine the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff warning the enemy before an attack. It’s difficult for me to contemplate. Besides—where would Gen. Milley-Mouse, a pusillanimous backstabber, ever find the intestinal fortitude to do something so egregious?
The answer is. He doesn’t need intestinal fortitude because he doesn’t think warning the enemy of an attack is egregious; it’s smart politics (at least he thinks so). He sees himself as a politician, not a soldier and that’s why he did what he did while serving President Trump. Could you imagine what would happen if he made that call while serving Presidents Obama or Biden? Or wait … wait for it … waittt … I’m having a prescient moment.
Maybe—just maybe, he is serving Obama/Biden.

Trump about Milley
Beauty and Brains (never commingled on CNN or MSNBC)
The image of Joe (checking his watch) while standing on the tarmac during the transfer of the last 13 soldiers lost in Afghanistan, is burned into my memory. In a rare moment, Biden’s actions spoke the truth.
I have a unique connection to those parents who’ve experienced the instantaneous vacuum and extreme sorrow of surviving a son or daughter. Where pride, joy, and unconditional love remain forever, so too, does the vast cavern. I won’t repeat Joe’s mistake by saying any more about me because this is about thirteen heroes and their families.
After the transfer home and Joe’s obvious detachment, there were reports that many family members of the Heroic 13 refused to meet with the man that caused their pain, and it’s completely understandable. But there were family members, who, despite their loss and anger, decided to see the man face to face. I can only imagine the experience; somewhat like confronting the murder of your child in a courtroom, after an acquittal.
Of those that decided to hear what the Commander-in-Chief (by name only) had to say, it’s been reported that the experience was disappointing. Joe said little about the heroes who lost their lives, and instead, spoke a lot about his son Beau (a Bronze Star recipient). I found that curious and wondered if Beau was a hero too. So I decided to do a little research.
While actual Gold Star families lost loved ones in battle, Joe and Jill lost their son to cancer. True, cancer is a battle and a horror all its own, but it isn’t service-related. Joe was on the tarmac to honor heroes and later met with grieving family members to comfort their loss, not his.
Joe is always eager to point out that his son was a decorated soldier. I assumed the Bronze Star was evidence of Beau’s bravery. Though, I don’t remember any campaign speeches or fellow soldiers speaking publically of specific deeds. And if you think about it, I seriously doubt anyone in politics named Biden would be able to keep heroics like that a secret. So I kept digging.
As is usual, my research showed that Joe and his son Beau, in true Biden form, come up more than a little short. Without going into a long, drawn-out explanation, officers deployed to an area of conflict are routinely awarded a Bronze Star for demonstrating valor, merit, and achievement. Beau spent one year in Iraq serving as an officer in the Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps. I wasn’t able to find out any specifics as to what he did to earn the BS (Bronze Star) other than show up. But I was able to find out that he remained the Delaware Attorney General (AG), while at the same time serving as a JAG officer in Iraq. Which job do you think he was truly dedicated to?
I understand that military service is honorable at any level, but do you seriously think that our woke military would ever put one of their own: a serving AG and JAG lawyer anywhere near an active front line—especially, a Vice-President’s son? NO! I doubt that Beau ever had to fire a rifle except during basic training. The woke brass did nothing but cheapen an honored military award meant for those who demonstrate (I know I’m repeating this) exceptional valor, merit, and achievement. I couldn’t find any documentation as to which of these criteria Joseph Robinette “Beau” Biden, III satisfied. After stripping away the platitudes and superficially grandiose complements of people like Gen. Ray Odierno (his commanding officer), there’s nothing of substance you can point to, not a single thing.
So back to my original curiosity—Did Joe have just another lapse in judgment, a brain-fart, a temporary lack of compassion and decorum during his conversations with grieving family members? Or was there an underlying method to his madness; an agenda all his own, meant to draw an analogy between true heroes that gave all, and his son Beau who gave some (the documentation is lacking as to how much some really is).
In a rare instance, The Washington Post initially got it right when they issued a statement criticizing Joe Biden for his insensitivity to the families of the Heroic 13. Focusing on Beau was inappropriate. But then, the WP retracted the statement by saying something to the effect that Joe still mourns too.
If you live long enough, we all suffer loss. The focus is the here and now, not the past. Our heroes and their families deserve much more than Joe.
PS – Just like the time-check faux pas, the truth about the Biden Clan leaks out every so often. All we have to do as Americans is look for it, and see it for what it is—fact. But then, we have to act. It’s the least we can do for those who serve.
If you serve in any branch of the military, no matter your rank, you are expected never to speak out publically in opposition of your commanding officers or your commander in chief. If you do you suffer the consequences as did Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller. While to those outside the military, this might seem wrong and counterproductive, it is necessary. The point of such a rule is this. Only those who lead have all the facts, the big picture. And just because an order may seem wrong, it isn’t necessarily wrong, therefore orders must be followed, not questioned. It’s the only way a well-functioning military works.
Orders given—orders followed. There is trust on both sides of the equation. Leaders trust that their orders will be followed and those who are ordered trust that their leaders are doing what is right and just. Under normal circumstances and with competent leadership, the system works as it should. But there is an exception to this rule and there is only one solution: albeit a drastic one. If an order is so blatantly wrong that it can’t be obeyed, a soldier has a responsibility to his or her God, country, and fellow soldiers to disobey. But the cost is high, as it should be. It literally means losing everything.
You can see samples of this over and over in Hollywood productions both movies and TV where a junior officer refuses to carry out an order that a commanding officer issues. Usually, the commander has a personal agenda that doesn’t include the best interests of their country. Other times the leaders in charge are just bungling (woke) fools who are a disgrace to the uniform they don. But when push comes to shove and the cataclysmic end is near there’s always that lone soldier who stops the excrement from rolling any further down the hill, stands on principle and risking it all, disobeys an order. That’s the moment he or she becomes a true hero. In Hollywood it’s just a script, in the US armed forces, it means the end of your career.
Lt. Col Stuart Scheller had enough. There wasn’t one bad order or one bad commanding officer in Washington, the Afghanistan retreat is a hornet’s nest full of both. The list must be a mile long and at the top is Joe (the buck stops with me if I can’t find a way to blame Trump) Biden. Next comes Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley (mouse), then there’s the rest of the JCOS who have been conspicuously silent. Amongst all these decorated commanders, we have to go down the chain of command to Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller to find a man willing to risk it all.
That’s true heroism. But hell, what do I know, I’m just a bus driver.
For more perspective regarding the subject of me saying what those in the military can’t, please reference my previous posts The Tail is Wagging the Dog, where you’ll hear more about Gen. Milley (mouse) and also Shoes Before Socks, where some of the weak links in the chain are exposed.
PS – If by chance you are an active soldier and you like what you read, please do NOT share or retweet this content. You’ll probably get in trouble. But if you’re retired military and you like this stuff, feel free to spread the word.
Starring in no particular order of relevance: DOD Press Secretary John Kirby, JCOS Gen. Mark Milley (mouse), Maj. Gen. William ‘Hank’ Taylor, Sec. of Defense Lloyd James Austin III, and last but not least US Sec. of State Antony John Blinken.
For the past few weeks (and probably more) these are the people responsible for the Afghanistan debacle. Joe Biden is just the fall guy. All you need to do is listen to a Joe Biden press conference and if you can make it to the end, the proof is in the pudding. The tail is wagging the dog.
Last week John Kirby said he had no indication that the Afghan Army would fall so fast. But the good news is our mission to secure the airport is a success.
Also last week, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley (mouse) took every opportunity to say that we had no indication the Afghan Army would fall so fast and the Taliban would take over equally as fast. But our mission to secure the airport is a success. Does this sound familiar?
It seemed as though Maj. Gen. William ‘Hank’ Taylor was a one-trick pony as well. Every question was answered pretty much the same way. Our mission was to secure the airport and the airport is secure. Wait, isn’t that what the other two guys said?
Sec. of Defense Lloyd James Austin III, in a total lapse of judgment and completely off the reservation, told the truth. He stated that regarding the ability to go out and rescue our citizens and allies the way the British, French, and even the Germans were able to do, we had no capability. I haven’t seen or heard from him since.
And Sec. of State Antony John Blinken who still thinks the best way to get our hostages (oops), I mean Americans and allies out of harm’s way is to negotiate with the Taliban. By the way, in case you don’t already know, the Taliban is harm’s way. You don’t negotiate with the Taliban. You tell the Taliban how they will die if they don’t comply.
Suffice it to say, if Blinken’s lips are moving, he’s lying.
If I were allowed into the Pentagon Briefing Room, I would have only one question for each of our illustrious stars. Why?
Why Mr. Kirby did you not have indications? Is it because Gen. Milley (mouse) didn’t inform you?
Why Gen. Milley (I’ll explain the mouse thing shortly) did you not have any indication whatsoever that the Afghan Army wasn’t up to the task? Isn’t it your job to know this fact? And isn’t it a dereliction of duty that you didn’t? Or maybe you were too wrapped up in Woking our military. How’s that working out for you?
Why Maj. Gen. Hank, didn’t you know? Gen. Milley (mouse) is far removed from boots on the ground but in a real way, aren’t you his backup? Why Maj. Gen. Hank Taylor didn’t you have any indications — oh wait. I already know the answer. The mission was to secure the airport and the airport is secure.
Why Sec. of Defense Austin III, did we not have capabilities similar to the British, French, and Germans? Is it because our Woke Generals in Washington and our Wokepolitical leadership suck Taliban donkey-di … Kong?
Why Sec. of State Antony (I don’t have an H in my first name because …) Blinken are you letting the Taliban … Oh never mind. If I ask you a why question your lips would move and quite frankly, I’ve had enough of the lies.
So the Tail is Wagging the Dog. It’s been that way since Biden took office and it will stay that way until we do something about it. If Joe gets impeached or removed from office because he’s incapacitated (physically and mentally), then Kamala becomes President and the Tail Continues to Wag the Dog (it’s called a sequel).
We need to reelect President Donald J. Trump if only so we can hear those immortal words, You’re Fired.
Now! For the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Why Gen. Mark Milley (mouse)? What gives me the right to criticize JCOS Gen. Mouse? Aren’t I not only disrespecting the man but also the uniform and this country? I submit to you that the answer to these questions is an emphatic NO. Read the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Joe Biden blows monkey-chunks as President of the United States. This statement disrespects the man, not the office he holds. General Milley-mouse is the Chairman JCOS and as such, is the man, the last man in the military hierarchy with the responsibility to put himself between danger and the American people. Somewhere along his career path, he forgot that he’s a soldier and became a politician. When President Biden ordered a full-scale retreat from Afghanistan prior to securing the safety of our American citizens and allies, Gen. Mouse had a duty to say NO. I will not give that order. At that moment, while not risking life or limb, Gen. Milley would have become a national hero. But because his career is more important to him than his duty, he became what he is today.
Gen. Milley-mouse I have another question for you. How do you find the courage to stand there at the podium in the Pentagon briefing room while wearing that uniform — and lie? I suppose I can understand why you would lie to the American people and even the world; hell … you’re a politician. But wearing that uniform implies that first, you are a soldier. How do you lie to the men and woman you command?
There are pictures of soldiers at the closed airport border gate that Joe Biden said was open and free-flowing … Sir, there are pictures of soldiers defying your orders and pulling women and children over the top of this gate. These Sir, are the heroes. Any one of them could take a sniper bullet at any moment. Yet they risk their lives, and yes, even their careers to save those who are innocent. My words don’t disgrace that uniform, Sir, you do. It’s time you do what you should have done before you gave the order to retreat, you should resign.
Prologue: I’ve been noticeably absent from posting lately. In the past, it would be attributed to my becoming lazy, but that isn’t the case this time. It’s because I’ve been fighting off the dastardly Covid-19 variant D (for Democrat). My intention was to reenter the blogosphere by posting about my experience and to disseminate a lot of the information the mainstream and social media giants are trying to censor. But my priorities have changed as only they should, when the lives of so many others need to come first.
Socks Before Shoes
Do you remember when your four-year-old put on shoes first, and then socks? If you don’t then you remember something similar and just as odd. Your child does this for two reasons. The first is humor. Your four-year-old knows it’s wrong and the logic incongruity is what makes it funny; your child is consciously aware of this fact and therefore, motivated. The second reason your four-year-old does this is curiosity. He or she wants to confirm that it isn’t right to put socks over shoes. By experimenting and observing your reaction as a parent, a child gets this confirmation, and learns. The first attempt usually results in laughter, as it should. Any subsequent attempts — not so much … Regardless, by the time our kid goes to first grade, socks come first, then shoes. It’s a fact.
As an adult, we can use life experiences and the lessons that we learned as a child, to work our way through real-world situations. I don’t have to be a military strategist and I don’t even need a military background to know that the current retreat from Afghanistan is all wrong. As a civilian, I don’t need the alphabet soup agencies (NSA, DOD, CIA, etc.) to advise me of this fact. As a free-thinking adult American, I can look at a military situation such as Afghanistan and know intuitively, you remove all Americans and SIV (special immigration visa) applicants before you remove your ability to defend them. It’s a fact.
President Joe Biden (said as I choke and gag), I have one rhetorical question for you. Are you smarter than a first-grader?
And now, to make things worse. According to the State Department website: The Emergency Security Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021, as enacted on July 30, 2021, authorized 8,000 additional Special Immigrant Visas (SIVs) for Afghan principal applicants, for a total of 34,500 visas allocated since December 19, 2014. SIVs include Afghan allies and their family members. This process was started over six years ago. Why are Americans and our allies still in Afghanistan with absolutely no means of defense? The ESSAA of 2021 is prima facie evidence of a promise. If you help us, we will help you.This isn’t just a promise our country made — it’s a promise you and I made as American Citizens who supposedly elected our representative government. We made this promise to our Afghan allies.
The Biden administration is inept: we need no more examples. The current President is an unadulterated embarrassment to every American today and for decades to come. It’s time we do something about it.
