Over 120 generals and admirals warn that administration policies are 'national security threat'
A day before the Senate markup of H.R. 1 on May 11, 2021, (the Democrats' power-grab to federalize election laws in favor of progressive candidates), 124 retired admirals and generals issued an open letter to the American people warning that "[o]ur nation is in deep peril. We are fighting for our survival as a Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding in 1776."
Among the dangers facing the nation created by the administration's policies, the retired flag officers singled out H.R. 1 and S. 1. Without fair and honest elections, they warn that "our Constitutional Republic is lost." Under our federal system, the states and not the federal government set the controls to ensure election integrity: that there is one legal vote cast and counted per citizen. State legislatures are tasked by the Constitution with setting the election rules.
Using government IDs and verified signatures are just commonsense controls, the flag officers argue, to ensure honest elections. But today, many are calling such commonplace controls "racist" in an attempt to avoid having fair and honest elections. The flag officers blasted as a "tyrannical intimidation tactic" the use of racist slurs to stop criticism of the Democrat power-grab. The flag officers compared these tactics to those used by fascist and Marxist regimes to silence their critics. The flag officers warn that H.R. 1 and S. 1, if passed, would destroy election fairness and allow Democrats to forever remain in power, "violating our Constitution and ending our Representative Republic."
The retired generals and admirals cited the administration's appeasement of China as the most important external danger, but they also decried the administration's determination to return to the disastrous Iran nuclear deal.
But the flag officers focused on the numerous internal threats created by administration's policies like the destruction of our border security, condoning anarchic violence, politicizing our military to create the illusion of right-wing threats, spreading the divisive Critical Race Theory, and undermining our energy independence.
It is highly unusual for retired generals and admirals to engage in political actions. But these retired flag officers signed this letter because they still felt bound by the oath that they had taken "to support and defend the Constitution of the U.S. against all enemies, foreign and domestic." The retired flag officers acted because "our Constitutional Republic is under tremendous assault coming from those believing in Socialism and Marxism which is the opposite of the freedoms, liberty and Bill of Rights that form the basis of our Constitution and our traditional values."
They call on the American people to become engaged in political activity to confront these dangers by throwing out these left-wing politicians in the 2022 elections in favor of representatives at the federal, state and local levels who will act to save America.
"Under a Democrat Congress and the current Administration," the flag officers lament, "our country has taken a hard left turn toward socialism and a Marxist form of tyrannical government which must be countered now by electing congressional and presidential candidates who will always act to defend our Constitutional Republic. The survival of our nation and its cherished freedoms, liberty and historic values are at stake."
