Thirty House Republicans signed a letter to top military leaders, demanding the release of Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, who was thrown in the brig for publicly calling on the top brass to accept accountability for the tragic botching of the Afghanistan withdrawal. I just want to know why it’s only 30.

Also, Rep. Louie Gohmert visited with Scheller and had some encouraging news to relate afterwards.

As if to hammer home that the only people the DC liberal establishment think deserve jail are those who disagree with their politics, an investigation has been launched into Lance Cpl. Hunter Clark. He’s the Marine who was seen in a viral video saving a baby by pulling it over a barbed wire-topped wall at the Kabul Airport during the botched Afghanistan evacuation. His alleged crime: he accepted an invitation to speak at a rally from former President Trump.

Note that he was not in uniform and made no political statements. He was invited up by Trump as part of a public show of support for US troops, and he thanked the crowd for their support and said it means a lot and he’s glad to be home. For that, he’s now under a command investigation to see if he violated any Department of Defense policies.

So to recap so far: Ask for accountability from failed leaders, go to jail. Get thanked in public by a former President for saving a baby, go under investigation. Preside over the worst strategic disaster in modern military history, keep your job and get praised by CNN.

Idiocy: National School Board Association president sends a letter to Biden asking him to use federal law enforcement to investigate parents

By Mike Huckabee

Keeping up the theme that the only crime Democrats care about is the thought crime of disagreeing with them, the president of the National School Board Association sent a hysterical letter to President Biden, urging him to use federal law enforcement to deal with the “imminent threat” of angry parents who are showing up at school board meetings to protest their kids being forced into draconian mask mandates and indoctrinated with racist “Critical Race Theory.”

She wants these parents investigated and their angry complaints at school board meetings treated as threats and intimidation that are “equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.” That's right: if you complain about how your kid is being mistreated or indoctrinated at school, then you just might be a terrorist.

Sounds as if she’d be a supporter of Terry McAuliffe’s bid to become Governor of Virginia again. At a recent debate, he said, “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”

As noted at the link, Virginia law on parents’ rights reads, “A parent has a fundamental right to make decisions concerning the upbringing, education, and care of the parent’s child.”

But teachers’ unions might want to think twice before they start treating parents like terrorists. They believe Democrats will protect them out of gratitude for everything they do to get them elected, from campaign donations to misleading a generation of children into embracing socialism.

But when a group of New York teachers appealed for the same “regular testing” exemption from Democrat Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s vaccine-or-else mandate that other city workers get, liberal SCOTUS Justice Sonya Sotomayor rejected their appeal with no comment. Well, these are the people their unions wanted in office, and they got ‘em. Unfortunately, so did the rest of us.

That ruling means any New York public school teachers who weren’t vaccinated by 5 p.m. Friday (even if they have natural immunity from prior infection) will be put on unpaid leave for at least a year (so much for “My body, my choice.”) And that could spell a loss of up to 7,000 teachers from the New York school system.

Combine this with the potential loss of thousands of desperately-needed healthcare workers for the same reason, and you can see why I say that in all cases, Democrat cures are worse than the disease.

    Again, Mike, It's that Village that Hillary hailed so proudly: They'll raise your kids (despite your opposition), prosecute our military and first responders - if they don't hew to Demo standards, and do just about anything they damned well please. After all, THEY are D.C., Democrat City.

    "Righteousness exalts a nation..." " but the nation that forgets God will be turned into hell". We are currently standing on the threshold of that door way. Our nation and too many of those people who call themselves Christians have forgotten God. He will only constrain those evil ones for a while, but because he is a just God he must reprove and ultimately punish the evil doers.

    I get news from Open Doors, and Voice of the Martyrs. Over the past three years, they had told that members of the Taliban had been coming into hundreds of rural communities and making it clear that they were in charge, with bullets when necessary. These villages ranged from a few dozen people, to villages of several hundred. These villages had no communication with the outside world as they have no electricity, radios, TVs, phones and they were unaware of any proceedings in and from the "government". As a result the Taliban was growing stronger every day and would soon have adequate strength to over throw the so called "government". If I knew that three years ago, how is it that the US government with all its resources did not know this? Obviously they did and this was a planned disaster.

    The whole Democratic administration is a total lie and God help us get through the next three years.

    Isaiah 5:20 "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"

    In God's plan and timing, His woe will fall on those in this nation who persist in doing these things. I would not want to be in their shoes when that happens. My consolation is knowing He is just, fair, and righteous.

    Ok Governor here I go again, on top of all this our commander in chief has declassified our nuclear Arsenal numbers. Why that is important for the entire world to know is beyond me. The powers to be in all armed countries already knows this, now the entire population of our planet knows. Things that make you go DUH!

    Regarding the commentary "We Are Holding, etc.", I must say that only have one slight disagreement and that is regarding Lt. Col. Scheller. The Uniform Code of Military Justice is quite clear and states that to do so is a serious violation of said code.

    Do I disagree with him, my heavens most certainly not but respectfully, he sadly got the cart before the horse.

    Had he submitted the resignation of his commission and brought that action to fruition prior to his comments, while not guaranteed, would have most probably been far less than that which he now faces.

    As a former Airman in the United States Air Force, I must say that today's services have, in my opinion, become so politicized and their management so indoctrinated in the quests and theories of the left that our Nations future is in serious peril.

    Let's see, since our venture into WW II in 1940-41, we have been involved in six serious Military engagements, three of which are considered to be of a major nature. They include Korea (We basically surrendered), Viet Nam (We basically surrendered), Iraq (We did depose Sadam Husdein, a mini success) and the twenty years that we just concluded in Afghanistan (We surrendered once again) and worse yet, threw many of our citizens, many Green Card holders and even more SIV holders, totally under the wheels.

    My point being is that our Military has been very well trained in fighting wars, but sadly, no mention is ever made of how to actually win them.

    We have become a paper tiger and our enemies, I can assure you are very aware of that fact.

    I guess it is only to be accepted patriots are under attack. The worst traitors in the history of our country are in control of the government at present. I pray daily that our nation will survive this present administration and that these people will be removed from any influence over the American people whatsoever. If this doesn't happen we are lost. The next direct attack is going to be on the Constitution and if the American people do not have the will to stand up and demand their rights under the Constitution then the nation will fall and we will have anarchy in the streets.
