(Nov. 24, 2019) — “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to yet another informative episode of ‘The Pulse of the Nation,’ the place where your mind tells you to go for the truth. That’s right: what you learn here may not be to your liking but, hey, learn to live with it. Did I read that right? Who writes this stuff? How about we start over?

“Good evening, and this is your effervescent Roving Reporter (RR) reporting from the — by the way, what is this place?”


“Headquarters? Why, this is just a regular house on a regular street.”

“You’re wrong about that, soldier, on so many counts I couldn’t even begin to count them. You’re out of uniform; you don’t say ‘Sir’; you walk like a civilian; your hair is too long; and you look like you didn’t shave this morning. Unacceptable, but since we made the biggest mistake ever in the history of our country, I guess we have to be satisfied with what we have and learn to live with it.”

“This time in English, please, Sir. What mistake?”

“We did away with the draft, that’s what I’m talking about. We lost our civilian military, is what happened. But don’t get me wrong, the troops are okay; the real problems lie at the top, and there’s no better example of how the Joint Chiefs of Staff has messed up the works, almost to the point of being beyond redemption, irrespective of how Trump keeps saying that he’s ‘rebuilt the military.’ Give him credit for trying, for sure.”

“That bad?”

“Yes, I’m afraid so and it hurts me to no end. The Army let one of its own down, and whenever that happens – which never should happen in the first place – it puts everyone in uniform on notice that we DON’T HAVE YOUR BACK.”

“Care to give us an example, Sir?”

“Let me throw out one name: LTC Terry Lakin, that Army doctor who asked to see Barry Soetoro’s (aka Barack Obama’s) BIRTH CERTIFICATE. You see, Lakin didn’t believe that the cheap suit (Obama) was eligible to be president; didn’t buy what Nancy Pelosi was selling. Trouble is, the Joint Chiefs of Staff went along with the charade of Lakin’s kangaroo Court-Martial to the point where Lakin was railroaded straight into a Dishonorable Discharge and a cell at Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary.”

“Refresh our memory on how that happened, Sir.”

“Lakin was denied his Constitutional rights, is what happened. And talk about the word ‘ironic’: Lakin took the Oath to ‘defend and protect the United States Constitution’ and look what they did to him: they stabbed him in the back, is what they did. Bottom line? They denied Lakin his Constitutional rights for fear of embarrassing the president.

“Yet many of those very same people are still in the military, still at the Pentagon.”

“You are 100% correct, Roving. But you know what?”

“No, what’s that, General?”

“The worst of them, the bottom of the barrel, the epitome of them all, so to speak, is the NAVY. The Navy is the biggest backstabber of them all, after the Army.”

“A tie, General.”

“I think all the services are corrupt beyond redemption; I mean, each of them have accepted Muslims, haven’t they?”

“I’m afraid so, General. Is this what this is all about?”

“And it starts with Obama’s BIRTH CERTIFICATE. Russian Collusion; intimidation; quid pro quo: and every made-up excuse to make our country in the image of any other Communist failure, and it all starts and ends with the corruption that is Obama.”

“You targeted the Navy; any particular reason?”

“How about ‘posing for a photo with a casualty’; is that good enough for you?”

“You have got to be kidding. Why, me and all the rest of us who were in-country in Vietnam would be rotting in prison if that were the case.”

“And that’s my point. Why, from the time of Alexander the Great, warriors have been celebrating the death of the enemy. Golly, but hasn’t anyone heard of the Arc de Triomphe in downtown Paris?”

“And Eddie Gallagher did what he was over there to do: kill the enemy. If you fire at me from a house, I’m calling in artillery; if you fire at me and run into a mosque, I’m throwing in grenades; and if you fire at me from a cemetery, I’m calling for a tank with a righteous flamethrower: an M-67.”

“Yes, also known as the ‘infantry’s best friend,’ but they don’t have those in service anymore, General.”

“Yet another reason why the Joint Chiefs of Staff are worthless. Look, I’m not going down the list, because we just don’t have enough time — or space — to list all of the failures, starting with not having any hand-to-hand combat training with knives* (bayonets), or else very little. So, getting back to the bad guys firing at me from a cemetery, I’m going to use either a flamethrower or napalm: period. End of story.”

“I’m afraid not, General. The Navy wants to demote and embarrass Gallagher as much as possible, even with the president telling them to lay off. All Gallagher was doing was killing the enemy.”

U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were murdered during a terrorist attack on a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012

“Here are the facts: the Navy we could have gone in and blown the bad guys to smithereens when Ambassador Stevens was being tortured and murdered (in Benghazi). The job of our troops in the Middle East is to kill Muslims, and if anyone doesn’t like it, like the Navy doesn’t like it, then get the heck out and go and play in a schoolyard sandbox.”

“I see you feel pretty strongly about this.”

“It comes down to one thing: lack of leadership starting with the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Chief of Naval Operations.”

“So, what do you suggest?”

“Fire them all and put people in who actually understand how the world works, and none of this Textbook Academy Political Correctness philosophy that’ll get us all killed. And get rid of the Obama holdovers; put all those who testified against Gallagher in prison for life and let’s start acting like warriors instead of worrying about offending some crybaby. Either we do what has to be done, or our Navy will float itself right down the drain.”

“And the Muslims in our military?”

“Maybe the Navy can redeem themselves by putting their Muslims ashore in Tripoli.”

“Got it, and you’d be pleasantly surprised how many of us get the message, Sir, but we have some intellectually-deficient people in our country who still think that it was Trump who was guilty of the Russian collusion and not Obama and Hillary**.

“Well, General, I see that our time has expired and it’s time for me, on behalf of the crew, to say goodnight to our viewers and readers alike: Goodnight.

“Good show. Burger time: my treat.”
