Censorship At DIA, No Wonder We Lost Afghanistan

27 08 2021

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

I spent two years working in the Pentagon, where I served as an Army officer assigned to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).  When I finished my service there—as a Captain—I received the distinguished Joint Service Commendation Medal, before going to work in the U.S. Senate.[2]

Like many organizations, DIA has an alumni group, which ostensibly posts comments about timely issues.  None is more important today than the collapse of our great nation’s presence in Afghanistan, and the loss of American, allied and Afghan lives.  It is front and center globally.  Yet, a former DIA employee, James Beirne—who presumably was a civilian when he worked there—has decided to ban my comments, which constitutes gross and unconscionable censorship.  Americans have fought and died for our freedoms; and they are dying in Afghanistan today, to preserve them.[3]

No wonder Afghanistan constitutes a colossal defeat for the United States, which may surpass the fall of Saigon and Vietnam, and the Bay of Pigs fiasco, in terms of its national gravity.  Presumably Beirne is part of the reckless “cancel culture,” which has no place in America today.  He is a stain on the DIA where I worked before him, with outstanding co-workers who contributed greatly to our national security.

Beirne should resign in disgrace.  Our nation is not well served by the likes of him.  Indeed, the association’s motto is “Still Serving in Defense of the Nation.”  Clearly, Beirne is not doing this, especially in crucial times like this when China’s Xi Jinping and Russia’s Vladimir Putin—and our other adversaries globally—are watching every move that we make, and gauging their responses accordingly.[4] 

America does not need traitors at this critical juncture in our history.

On August 26, 2021, Beirne posted the following notice:

“You can’t post or comment in this group.
“The admin has temporarily turned off your ability to post or comment in the group until September 23, 2021, 2:07 PM.”

Needless to say, by late September, the world will know in meticulous detail what an unmitigated disaster Afghanistan has become for the United States, our friends in Afghanistan, and our allies globally.

The Biden-Harris Presidency Has Ended

26 08 2021

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Yes, it hasn’t come to an end officially, yet.  But for all intents and purposes, it is done.  Lyndon Johnson’s presidency was finished after the fall of Saigon and Vietnam.  He was hated, and could not run for reelection.[2]

The tragedy of epic proportions that is emerging in Afghanistan and the fall of its capital Kabul, and America’s humiliation at the hands of the Taliban, has trumpeted the end of the Biden-Harris presidency to the world—to friends and foes alike.[3]

Is Joe Biden “Brain Dead”?  All indications are that this is true.[4]  But in a sense, it is irrelevant.  The world has watched the only true superpower disgraced like perhaps never before.[5]  And the ripple effects will spread far and wide.[6]

The rise of Coronavirus hospitalizations in the United States adds an exclamation point to this.[7]  Needless to say, China’s Xi Jinping and Russia’s Vladimir Putin are watching these developments closely.  As “chess masters,” they will be calibrating their moves accordingly; and they are observing America mired down, like Gulliver and the Lilliputians.[8]

Will The Coronavirus’ Mutations Cripple America When It Is Becoming Clear To The World That Joe Biden Is Not Fit To Serve As President?

26 07 2021

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

There is little question—at least on the part of our enemies—that Joe Biden is not fit to serve as our President. As one female wag from Los Angeles has noted:

Watching the Dems twist themselves into knots pretending Joe isn’t practically brain dead would be entertaining if it wasn’t so dangerous for the country.[2]

China unleashed the deadly Coronavirus on the world—either inadvertently or as a bioweapon—and it has been reaping enormous benefits ever since. The United States is fractured politically; and China’s communist rulers expect to be the dominant force in the world by the end of this decade.[3]

Indeed, former White House physician to Presidents Obama and Trump, Ronny Jackson, has tweeted:

Something is SERIOUSLY wrong with Biden – and it’s only going to get WORSE! [4]

All of this is occurring as the Coronavirus’ “Delta variant” mutation is producing havoc in the United States; and more Americans are refusing to be vaccinated.[5] And Willie Brown’s ho Kamala stands in the wings, waiting to take over.

China’s economy was languishing/faltering before it unleashed the Coronavirus. Its effects, and the election of Creepy Joe and Heel’s-up Harris, has given Xi Jinping “check,” as he and China’s other leaders move to “check-mate.”

If Biden is forced out, and Harris takes over, may Heaven help us.

The Democrats are in the process of subjugating their opponents, with the help of our media—as George Orwell predicted in his prescient “Animal Farm.”[6] At some point, China may make significant strategic moves . . . or its leaders may decide to sit back and let the West really fall apart first.

Under Ronald Reagan, the United States won the Cold War, as the Soviet Union collapsed without a shot being fired. China may be hoping for a similar result.
