Colonel's Column

November, 2019


The Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) so prevalent in the socialist/ communist democrat party, far left progressives and the main stream media was brightly displayed in two incidents this week.  First, that President Trump could not get the credit deserved for the elimination of the worst terrorist in our time, al-Baghdadi, leader of ISIS, and his second in command demonstrates the total illogic and depravity of the left.  The world has been made safer by the deaths of those animals, yet no praise for that fact from the TDS patients.  President Trump displayed courage and fortitude in ordering the strike, and the Special Forces complied with precision and effectiveness.  The backlash against the President only stiffens the resolve of true American Patriots to see that the objectives of the radical left never materialize and that our President remains in office for a second term.  The second incident occurred at the fifth World Series game in Washington when some idiots in the crowd shouted “Lock him up.”  This displayed the total disregard for the dignity of the Office of the Presidency.  I encourage anyone who participated in that display of low mindedness to move to Venezuela, Cuba, China or some other communist regime where dignity is nonexistent.  As much as I detested the policies of the Obama Administration, no Republican during Obama’s term so openly denigrated the dignity and value of the Office as did these fools.  We are in a war for the very heart of the American ideals, dreams and values.  We cannot afford to lose this fight and our Constitutional Republic!

Now that I have vented, my true intent is to remind you that November is for the celebration of our honored Veterans.  Veterans Day recognizes the value, dignity and worth of those still with us who now stand or who stood in the gap for our country to assure that evil did not and does not come our way, and that our citizens sleep well and protected.  The date of November 11 marks the end of World War I.  The official celebration is at 11:11 a.m. being the exact time of the official close of hostilities in 1918.  In Waco, we are proud to have one of the largest Veterans Day parades in the Nation.  Take time to go to the parade and celebrate with those who have served.  Then, whenever you encounter a veteran, shake his or her hand and thank them for the sacrifices they endured for you.  God Bless all our Veteran heroes!
