Retired Military Brass Seek to Rally a Grassroots Movement to ‘Save America’

AmericaWASHINGTON, DC, May 12 — Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.  That’s the gist of the appeal scores of America’s military elite made in a new clarion call to citizens who care and are engaged.

An open letter from the Flag Officers 4 America Web site, signed by 124 Generals and Admirals, warns that if you are a citizen who cares and is engaged, you must get involved “at the local, state, and/or national level to elect political representatives who will act to Save America, our Constitutional Republic, and hold those currently in office accountable.”

The letter describes the urgent need for action.  “Our Nation is in deep peril. We are in a fight for our survival as the Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding in 1776. The conflict is between supporters of Socialism and Marxism vs. supporters of Constitutional freedom and liberty.”

It focuses on several key issues, starting with the need to ensure “fair and honest” elections in order to save our Representative Republic.  We must be ever watchful and act “swiftly when election irregularities are surfaced and not ignore them as was done in 2020.”

The letter cautions that Socialist, Marxist and Progressive extremists need to be checked lest they divide our nation into “warring factions.”  It takes aim at the calls for open borders, warns that the freedoms we receive thanks to the First Amendment are sacred and in need of protection, and reminds us that the “Rule of Law” — not anarchy — is the basic premise of our Republic.

In conclusion, the letter states that “Under a Democrat Congress and the Current Administration, 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.”

The missive focuses on a number of key issues, including China, which the generals and admirals who signed the letter say “is the greatest external threat to America.”  Not far behind, it adds, is illegal immigration and resuming U.S. participation in the Iran nuclear deal, two of President Biden’s top agenda items.

The letter goes on to slam Mr. Biden’s decision to stop the Keystone XL Pipeline project. “Stopping the Keystone Pipeline eliminates our recently established energy independence and causes us to be energy dependent on nations not friendly to us while eliminating valuable U.S. jobs. We must open the Keystone Pipeline and regain our energy independence for national security and economic reasons.”

The generals & admirals see the entire picture & I can only hope & pray our US military command structure hasn’t been completely feminized as some articles are stating as factual, i.e. CRT for starters. Critical Race Theory has NO place in our military, period. It does not belong in Federal Gov’t & it most certainty does NOT belong in our schools classrooms at any grade level, including our colleges. I tip my hat to these patriotic retired officers for speaking their minds. Is the US military listening to the peoples voices? We The People of this nation are the employers of all those serving in Washington, DC. We The People can have all of you REMOVED as well that have failed to live up to your obligations as public servants, remember this the next time any of you enrichen yourselves at the taxpayers expense…
God Bless America…

I wish there were someone to get us past these 4 years. I see nothing good and positive to happen with this administration. The only ones who will benefit are those holding all the B.S. cards. It’s all about THEM! Always has been and always will be! God help us.

If the Dems/leftists have their way, these retired military will have their retirements taken away – no doubt for some hyped-up charge. They like to throw the word “treason” around toward any who do not agree with their leftist mantra & push.

Let us not give the Democrats any ideas they may not have already thought of. It is very dangerous to express thoughts about what they might do, because they then will. We are at war, so don’t aid the enemy by giving them ideas.

I fear we don’t have a sufficient number of true patriots in Congress today to stop these treasonous Dems. Shame on the Republican party “leaders” of the past to have proffered up so many swamp rats as our only alternative. Reagan and Trump had to overcome the party rather than being the example of what they look for. I no longer donate to the RNC but have to look for the individuals and organizations to support separately.

Until there is another party opposing the Democrats it is necessary to vote Republican. That does not mean you should support the Republican party with donations, but rather support the individual candidates and organizations that truly support Conservatives and America.

RINOs like the Bush-Cheney-Romney-et al cabal, and Lincoln Project, are equally as much undermining our Republic by enabling the Progressives and the Democrats as junior partners of their coalition, masquerading as “Moderates.”

Time to rock and roll before socialists gain control over elections like the last one. Sleepy Joe magically got more votes than any president in history. I do not believe there are that many informed Americans that hate America so much.

This is a great call but I might suggest instead of fractioning (as I see it) the power we have in subgroups of patriots that a majority of us should be concentrating on the real source, which is to cut the heads off this existing government. Join your CONVENTIONS OF STATES. While it is admirable to put out fires as they come, our government is so deeply entrenched with this globalist ideology that by the time we rally and remove one impediment to our right to self governance they will have increased agendas 3 fold.

Research about the Dangers of opening a Convention of States. Dangerous Move!

Ron Howard

Reply to  Bonnie

I agree whole heartedly! I originally supported the Article V Convention of States until listening to educated opposition pointing out the real dangers of it. Until, and unless there is a way to hold delegates to their commitment to consider ONLY the proposed Resolutions, the Convention of States would throw open the entire Constitution to change. That would be like opening Pandora’s Box, and the great Constitution we have enjoyed for well over 200 years, that many died to defend, could be turned into something most Americans would not want to see. So, unless, and until we can absolutely hold the Delegates to the Convention to their oath to address only those prior agreed to resolutions, it is definitely not worth the risk. What really changed my mind about supporting Convention of States was after listening to the reasons to oppose it, then the leader pushing Convention of States refused to publicly debate the issue. Very telling situation. If someone believes in what they are supporting why would they refuse to debate the issue?

The people in Charge should show the stats on Foreign Aid, the amount of Philanthropy, the programs that exist for opportunity for all in our country, how sanctuary states and cities are hurting those programs, start arresting Politicians that are traitors to the country and violate the Constitution.

Because most Americans are good and kind people we are also very naïve, thinking all other peoples of the world are the same. That was very apparent during the Cold War. Many Americans just could not believe the warnings of the threats of Russian aggression because they could not believe that the Russian people were not just like us.

I believe that most Conservatives were baffled and shocked to find out how well organized the prepared the Socialist/Communist Democrats were when they pulled off the stealing of the 2020 election, and how quickly they have put their anti-America bureaucracy, rules, and laws in place. It has been overwhelming, because of the collusion between the Democrat party, mainstream news, Big Tech, and Communist China. But now we must stop being naïve, we MUST see evil for what it is, and never allow ourselves to be so deceived again. Communism and the Left have established a strong foothold, but not one that good, honest, patriotic American Conservatives cannot overcome.

We have to boycott China products and services, and Big Tech. We have to make our voices so loud in Congress and the Senate that it is deafening, Vote Conservative, run or support Conservatives for office, organize, protest, take back Congress in 2022, the Presidency and Senate in 2024.

If HR-1 and S-1 are passed through Congress, we have given up our Republic for a Socialist/Marxist form of govt that ONLY a blood shedding war will eliminate and allow us to return to the freedoms we all hold dear. Keep your powder dry and your flag high. Blessed day to all the patriots!

Fate whispered to the warrior, “You cannot fight the storm.”
The warrior whispered to fate, “I am the storm.”

Thank God I am finally hearing, reading, some voices of reason. There are some brave warriors out there. When I read the letter from the Flag Officers of America I breathed a sigh of relief. Is help on the way? Will the voices in the wilderness be heard? The more entrenched this travesty becomes the more difficult it will be to correct. Some voices come through but the follow up never follows. This time I’ll pray a little harder. This purge of freedom is happening all at once all over the world. The bio weapon seems to have succeeded at the first shot.Let’s hope the damage is not irreparable. .
