The Department of Defense just finished up its latest “Space Week” on the heels of the first congressional hearings and testimony on President Trump’s Space Force strategic objective. As Acting Defense Secretary Shanahan said at the 35th National Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, “a space architecture that is resilient, responsive, and ahead of the threat” […]

In Congressional testimony, United States Attorney General William Barr stated that he thought “spying was going on” against the 2016 Trump campaign. While a bombshell for some, this came as no surprise to many of us who’ve worked for decades in the Intelligence and Law Enforcement business. Just weeks ago, we were seeing headlines asking […]
Is the seven-year effort to care for Blue Water Navy veterans exposed to Agent Orange being torpedoed by Senate Republicans and President Trump? Where We Were December 3, 2018: H.R 299, the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2018, was passed by the U.S. House unanimously, 382 to 0, and went to the Senate […]
My family and I are so very thankful for the many blessings we receive on a daily basis. The United States provides so much for so many; it is overwhelming when we think about it. At this time of year, just after Veterans Day, we are reminded of the old phrase: “To those whom much […]
Dear Justice Kavanaugh, Congratulations on your confirmation to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). The confirmation process you and your family faced was very harsh and contentious, but you prevailed, and most of us out here in fly-over country support you firmly. However, we ask for your serious and thoughtful consideration of a […]
It’s been an absolutely crazy two weeks in American politics with the latest U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh being smeared incessantly by the Democratic party, its elected officials, and their very supportive media outlets. I am sure average Americans are appalled and disgusted by such a humiliating deformation of which many believe has […]
Illegal aliens, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), immigration policy reforms, border security, and prioritizing American citizens first are all part of a raging debate at more levels than usual these past days. On January 9th, President Trump had a great bipartisan meeting on the subject in which he opened up to the press and received rave reviews, even by some of the press he has rightly labeled fake news!
Things seemed as though our nation might actually make progress to secure our very porous Southern border, end chain migration, end the visa lottery that has enabled terrorists to attack us, and maybe even come to some sort of agreement on DACA, even though many Trump voters disagree with any form of amnesty.
Colonel Rob Maness. Over the July 4th holiday, the left-wing #FakeNews media over at the New Orleans Gambit decided they need to attack me for a second time in a week regarding my position on veterans’ organizations having their conferences in the City of New Orleans. Of course, this is not the first time the progressive left has attacked me personally over the issue.
Louisiana continues to demonstrate weakness as it tears down historical military statues.
Since the national media has given the despicable actions of the New Orleans mayor and city council almost no coverage, I am not sure how many Americans know or could understand what is happening here in our state’s best known city of New Orleans.
The iconic statues and monuments of the well known U.S. Civil War Confederate figures; General Robert E. Lee, General P.G.T. Beauregard, and President Jefferson Davis, were declared “public nuisances” by Democrat Mayor Mitch Landrieu two years ago, and subsequently voted for removal by a city council controlled by said mayor. The mayor has won approval through the courts by saying these statues are the city’s private property. Thus, they have the right to remove the monuments (without the public’s vote mind you) even though they are landmarks known to the city by tourists and locals alike for over 100 years.
The politicization of the intelligence community greatly affects the ability of the president to garner support for military action.
