Marine Todd: I AM The American Flag, And You’re Disrespecting Me, AMerica
We don’t get much Mail up here at COP Freedom, which is what I call my CHU here at Bagram, because we don’t get much Islamofascism here, either. So it wasn’t till after the DFAC ceremony for my meritorious promotion to 2cond Lieutenant, The Seal Team’s (honorary), that I was shocked to learn from the TV that football players are refusing to stand for the National Anthem on Sunday, GOD’S day, before they do their jobs for this country. (The promotion had to be Honorary, because I am MARSOC all the way through, and also because The Seal Team’s don’t need me making them look bad any more.)
They say its to protest police killings of people, and I am the first to agree with them on this, because theres too much shooting and not enough Marshall Arts being used on Bad Hombres who might just need some extra vitamin T - Todd fists. (Or Vitamin D, “Deportation” lol)
1. Listen to Me
But that’s a distraction from the real issues, here, which are so-called Americans offensing the Flag, and by extension, My Service. I may be late to this debate, but I believe I have a unique insight into this treason, because I am Marine Todd, and I have Fought for your Right to listen to Me.
You see, I defend America from all enmities, foreign and domestic. My Air Force friends know, they call me the Red Falcon. They said it used to be Blue but the changed it to Red to Honor the Color of my Blood, which also is the Color of Free America, on account of the Democrat Party being Blue. (Of course the Democrats would of Dishonored our real Blue Falcons like that.)
But I’m no perfect. I just barely scrapped through College with a 5.0 that my Liberal Professors tried to fail me on, until I bested them at combatives while proving Jesus divinity in a debate using MRE Crackers and Cheese. My point being, I’m not a Smart Man, but I’ am a Man, as sure as I pin myself with my Bronze Stars every morning until my Chest hurts and I need to change my bloody Web Belt, because if that’s what It Takes, I will do It, and That’s what It Takes. To do It. Every Morning..
B. Be Patrioutic!
So maybe I don’t have all the Facts, but it sure seems to me like NFL footballer players are making Baby Marine Jesus cry on purpose, and my military occupational specialty is Oh-no-I’m-not-gonna-let-that-happen, three hundred.
That’s why I’m proud too stand with Presidents Trump and Pence against the Disrespectors and the haters (I can never bring myself to capitalize that word) who Hate America with so much disrespect. Trump and Pence respect my Onion because they know it is the Opinion Of A Veteran, and I respect them so much for respecting my Onion. If I had been a Younger Marine Todd in 1969, I wouldve been Honored to leave my hooch full of Vietnamese Combat Victory Trophies to train Cadets at New York MIlitary Academy and call Cadet Trump Sir.” If the Marines had embedded combat grunts with conservative radio hosts, it would of been an Honor to call Young Matt Pence “SIR” too.
So I dont see why everyone is getting up on Pence for leaving a Football game early because kneeling 49er’s players offensed him. WE need leaders who will Pay any cost for Freedom, and if Freedom costs $250,000 for a 5,000 mile military plane trip to be offended for 70 seconds, who are you going to trust with that kind of trust, Hillarys email’s? Take it from me, a Combat Veteran, with a 170% Disability Rating: I am the Flag, and You are dissing Me.
4. Uniting against the Common Enmity
Its not just the NFL thats making brave combat-blooded wallstanding warriors like me cry. Theres so much Blue on Blue violence, and we vets have to start taking care of each others. LIke when I see Dakota Meyers and Dan Blizzarian attacking each other for whose better at killing active shooters at home in the states:
How about in the wake of a tragedy you actually do something to help instead of vlogging critiquing the people involved

This whole argument is like Angel’s dancing on the Head of a pin — a pin I’m holding between my Teeth as I adjust My windage on the Bad Guy’s with Guns, like I do when I’m MARSOCing or on loan out to The Seal Team’s. I mean, those other guy’s are good — Dakota Meyers can be my wingman anyday, and without Dan Blizzarian we wouldnt have my favorite refreshment, the Dairy Queen Blizzard. But lets just all agree that guns dont kill people, I kill people. Bad people, mostly.
Can we all get along? We have a Common Enemy: the dishonest Media. And football players burning The Flag, which, again, is burning Me. And Hillarys email’s. But mostly the Flag Kneelers who, by kneeling during the Anthem, are burning Flags. It’s all very complicated, but it Hurts the Flag. That’s all You need to know.
I could say more, but its time to get back to The War. Plus, I do all my best posting on Patrols, which are boring for Me, as there aren’t many Enemies left. I’ve killed a lot over the years. Just rember: America is All of Us, especially Our Heroes like Me. Until then, be good to each others, be vigilant against Tyranny, and stomp anyone who Disrespects Our Flag!
The FBI is treating the recent shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida, as a terrorist attack, several media outlets reported on Sunday.
"We work with the presumption that this was an act of terrorism," USA Today quoted FBI Agent Rachel Rojas as saying at a news conference.
WASHINGTON/SEOUL (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un risks losing "everything" if he resumes hostility and his country must denuclearize, after the North said it had carried out a "successful test of great significance."
"Kim Jong Un is too smart and has far too much to lose, everything actually, if he acts in a hostile way. He signed a strong Denuclearization Agreement with me in Singapore," Trump said on Twitter, referring to his first summit with Kim in Singapore in 2018.
"He does not want to void his special relationship with the President of the United States or interfere with the U.S. Presidential Election in November," he said.
The three sailors whose lives were cut short by a gunman at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida, on Friday "showed exceptional heroism and bravery in the face of evil," said base commander Navy Capt. Tim Kinsella.
Ensign Joshua Kaleb Watson, Airman Mohammed Sameh Haitham, and Airman Apprentice Cameron Scott Walters were killed in the shooting, the Navy has announced.
The Pentagon’s troop deployment denials means nothing when the White House screams ‘fake news’ all the time
The Pentagon has a credibility problem that is the result of the White House's scorched earth policy against any criticism. As a result, all statements from senior leaders are suspect.
We're beyond the point of defense officials being unable to say for certain whether a dog is a good boy or girl. Now we're at the point where the Pentagon has spent three days trying to knock down a Wall Street Journal story about possible deployments to the Middle East, and they've failed to persuade either the press or Congress.
The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday that the United States was considering deploying up to 14,000 troops to the Middle East to thwart any potential Iranian attacks. The story made clear that President Trump could ultimately decide to send a smaller number of service members, but defense officials have become fixated on the number 14,000 as if it were the only option on the table.

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. – Gen. David Berger, the US Marine Corps commandant, suggested the concerns surrounding a service members' use of questionable Chinese-owned apps like TikTok should be directed against the military's leadership, rather than the individual troops.
Speaking at the Reagan National Defense Forum in Simi Valley, California, on Saturday morning, Berger said the younger generation of troops had a "clearer view" of the technology "than most people give them credit for."
"That said, I'd give us a 'C-minus' or a 'D' in educating the force on the threat of even technology," Berger said. "Because they view it as two pieces of gear, 'I don't see what the big deal is.'"
