Trump Decries Lee Statue Removal, Says General Could Have Won Afghanistan

The 12 ton statues was cut into pieces and mothballed.

If there was any doubt left that Donald Trump was still very much a part of the American political ecosystem, it was washed away this week after the former President made a stunning statement regarding the removal of a major Civil War monument.

Over the course of the last 18 months, America has undergone a bit of a transformation in regard to the national view of the Civil War, and, more specifically, the Confederacy.  This has led a number of municipalities to remove or destroy Confederate monuments, statues and memorials.

One of the most prominent displays in this debate was a 12-ton visage of Confederate General Robert E. Lee that has adorned downtown Richmond, Virginia or decades.  That piece was removed earlier this week, cut into pieces, and shipped off to storage until some plan is developed for it.

Trump was none too pleased with the situation.

Former President Donald Trump issued a statement Wednesday condemning the removal of a 131-year-old statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee in Richmond, Virginia, calling the Confederate commander “the greatest strategist of them all” and admiring the statue’s artwork.

“Just watched as a massive crane took down the magnificent and very famous statue of ‘Robert E. Lee On His Horse’ in Richmond, Virginia,” Trump wrote. “It has long been recognized as a beautiful piece of bronze sculpture. To add insult to injury, those who support this ‘taking’ now plan to cut it into three pieces, and throw this work of art into storage prior to its complete desecration.”

But then things got a little…odd.

“Robert E. Lee is considered by many Generals to be the greatest strategist of them all,” Trump continued. “President Lincoln wanted him to command the North, in which case the war would have been over in one day. Robert E. Lee chose the other side because of his great love of Virginia, and except for Gettysburg, would have won the war. He should be remembered perhaps as the greatest unifying force after the war was over, ardent in his resolve to bring the North and South together through many means of reconciliation and imploring his soldiers to do their duty in becoming good citizens of this Country.”

Trump went on to claim Lee was more skilled than current U.S. generals, writing, “Our culture is being destroyed and our history and heritage, both good and bad, are being extinguished by the Radical Left, and we can’t let that happen! If only we had Robert E. Lee to command our troops in Afghanistan, that disaster would have ended in a complete and total victory many years ago. What an embarrassment we are suffering because we don’t have the genius of a Robert E. Lee!”

The statement, while undeniably bombastic, likely accomplished what Trump hoped that it would:  Sending a message to rural southerners that he’ll need their votes again soon.

FBI Informants Stormed Capitol on Jan. 6th, Muddying MSM Narrative

The infotainment industry is going to have a hard time spinning this one.

Published

on

For months on end, those who stormed the Capitol on January 6th claimed that there were interlopers among them, possibly even working to incite the violence and bring trouble to their ranks.

Of course, the mainstream media wasn’t having it.  They had the MAGA Movement right where they wanted them, and there was no scenario in which they were going to let this precious attack on the far-right go to waste.  No, they had decided that this was purely an incident of their own doing, and that they should be punished and ostracized ad nauseam on account of it.

But new reports seem to indicate that yes, indeed, there were some double agents among the throngs of Americans who stormed the building, and it’s putting the infotainment industry in a real bind.

As scores of Proud Boys made their way, chanting and shouting, toward the Capitol on Jan. 6, one member of the far-right group was busy texting a real-time account of the march.

The recipient was his F.B.I. handler.

In the middle of an unfolding melee that shook a pillar of American democracy — the peaceful transfer of power — the bureau had an informant in the crowd, providing an inside glimpse of the action, according to confidential records obtained by The New York Times. In the informant’s version of events, the Proud Boys, famous for their street fights, were largely following a pro-Trump mob consumed by a herd mentality rather than carrying out any type of preplanned attack.

And that’s not all:

After meeting his fellow Proud Boys at the Washington Monument that morning, the informant described his path to the Capitol grounds where he saw barriers knocked down and Trump supporters streaming into the building, the records show. At one point, his handler appeared not to grasp that the building had been breached, the records show, and asked the informant to keep him in the loop — especially if there was any violence.

The FBI has long been considered one of the shadier branches of federal law enforcement, often resorting to these sorts of tactics and infiltrations in order to achieve their mission.

Vaccine Mandate Cold Cause Healthcare Worker Shortage in Major City

This is WILD!

Published

on

With the number of Americans concerned about the potential side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine remaining steady, establishments that are now dealing in vaccine mandates are in for a rude awakening.

For months now, the vaccination rate has remained steady here in the United States, despite full FDA approval for some of the inoculations, and a steady stream of pressure from the Biden administration.  The issue is that, of all the folks who want to receive a vaccine, nearly all have.  Those remaining unvaccinated are doing so by choice.

And that’s why a coming vaccine mandate could wreak havoc on the New York City healthcare worker population.

New York state officials are bracing for staffing shortages when the state’s health care worker vaccination mandate takes effect on Monday, and could be looking to the National Guard — as well as medical professionals from other states and countries — to help address them.

Gov. Kathy Hochul released a plan on Saturday, outlining the steps she could take to increase the workforce in the event that large numbers of hospital and nursing home employees do not meet the state’s deadline.

“We are still in a battle against COVID to protect our loved ones, and we need to fight with every tool at our disposal,” she said.

That could mean declaring a state of emergency to allow health care professionals licensed outside of New York, as well as recent graduates and retirees, to practice there. Other options include deploying medically trained National Guard members, partnering with the federal government to send Disaster Medical Assistance Teams to local health and medical systems and “exploring ways to expedite visa requests for medical professionals.”

And, to make matters worse, those who find themselves terminated for their choice to remain unvaccinated will not be eligible for unemployment benefits, further infuriating those who believe that waive their cache to receive an inoculation are being discriminated against.
