Obama and his Marxist cadres were a disaster for the republic, it pains me to think that the US’s enemies are only biding their time for the next round of similar caliber leaders heading the nation once again.
TRUMP CONFRONTS RUSSIA WITH THE FLEET OBAMA ‘SANK’
What real power and national greatness look like.
On October 1962, destroyers from the Second Fleet streamed out to intercept Russian vessels suspected of delivering missiles to Cuba. Under the shadow of DEFCON 2, Vice Admiral Alfred Ward, commander of the Second Fleet, watched over a blockade of Cuba. The Navy men putting Russian ships under their guns knew that they were the tip of the spear in what might at any moment become the next world war.
The Russians had ordered their ships to keep going. It was up to the Second Fleet to hold the line.
“Admiral, it looks as though this is up to the Navy,” President Kennedy told Admiral Anderson.
“Mr. President,” the admiral replied, “the Navy will not let you down.”
On September 2011, under the leftist politico whose admirers tried to sell him as another JFK, the flag of the Second Fleet was taken down. The fleet that had taken point against the Russians was no more.
The justification for the disestablishment of the Second Fleet was the diminished threat from Russia. The Navy was being cut to pieces while Obama focused on boondoggles like the “Green Fleet”.
“Our Navy is smaller now than any time since 1917,” Mitt Romney had objected next year during a presidential debate. “We also have fewer horses and bayonets,” Obama sneered, to the cheers of the media. “The question is not a game of Battleship where we’re counting ships.”
When Romney brought up the Russian threat, Obama sneered some more. “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”
These days, Obama’s party is mired in a haze of Russian paranoia. But it was their leader who dismantled our first lines of defense and Trump who is restoring our military deterrence.
Seven years after Obama shuttered the Second Fleet, its flag is flying again. The fleet isn’t green any more, it is mean. And it will watch over the East Coast and the Atlantic to checkmate Russian subs.
The shutdown of the Second Fleet was part of Obama’s failed pivot to Asia which ended with a humiliating apology to China for flying a plane too close to one of the Communist dictatorship’s fake South China Sea islands. (Trump has since dispatched B-52s, outraging China, with no apology.)
That was December 2015.
