Some Vietnam Vets Commiserate over Trump

VET1 POSTS -- Here's why I believe that Donald J. Trump will be a one term president.
His money and his over-inflated ego have become stumbling blocks for him. He has surrounded himself by choosing his cabinet which consists primarily of nothing more than a bunch of his so called cronies...that have no respect for him or the office he holds. 
His rudeness and his very abusive mouth have offended people and foreign dignitaries around the world. Trump has lost respect from most of the human race. His insults and derogatory remarks on Twitter has shown the world his lack of intelligence and competency to run this country for another 4 years. 
I voted for this man...now I have to live with that the rest of my life. I believed he was a refreshing change in the oval office...how wrong I was. Do I want Biden as our president...hell no...but when you see Trumps track record in just over 3 years...its deplorable. Never has there been so much turmoil in that White House than what he brought through the front doors.
Comments
  • Vet2 I’m voting for him this year if I vote at all.

  • Vet3 I’m so surprised! I thought you were a diehard Trump supporter. I agree with everything you just posted.

  • Vet4(me) No alternatives offered. I'll take the jerk that gets results under treasonous pressure vs the continuation of dead 1970 policies to cripple the poor and maintain a profitable state to "care" for them.

  • Vet1  "vet1"..Chappy...I believe in Trump when he took office and noticed how the economy started to improve under his leadership...brought industry back to the states...re-built our military where Obama let it go to hell...he's done an awful lot of good...but I've always said his big...fat...mouth would be his downfall. Looks like its true...seeing how Biden has taken a double digit lead in the polls. It's sad to think he cant act like a president should. I'll still vote for him...like I did for Obama...regretfully.
    • VET2 --  "vet1"  you voted for Obama?

    • VET4- ME --  Vet 1 did -- he did, ( against Bush policy) but likely Russia would be our capitol now, had Gore or Hillary been in the white house (or some nukes would have spoken).

    • We often only get to choose the least worst choice in balance against a shifting congress majority. It is easier to get 3 steps forward if you only drop back two steps. But 6 steps back is a game changer.
  • Friend1 "Vet 1" , you have gone off your rocker. And that's all I'm saying about your post! Period!

  • VET4 (Me) Um. The spin on the polling is now warp. The di-lithium crystals are overheating, Scotty. No headline is safe. No story has more than 2 facts of 10 available because there is A STORY to tell you but not THE STORY. I also use Parler.com now to secure more voices.

  • VET1  "Friend 1" ...Trump has shot himself in the foot so many times since becoming President...its ridiculous. He uses Twitter like it's going out of style. His 1st day in office he called the prime minister of Australia and insulted the man. I hope he's re-elected...but as it looks now...its very doubtful. These next 4 months will tell the story. Isn't it great to be able to disagree ?

  • Friend2 I didn’t vote for him because I thought he was nice. I voted for him to get things done ... which he has. You only need to see how the other side is working against him to know that a “nice guy” would have accomplished nothing. I’ll post some accomplishments here in a bit.
 ASIDE -- VET4 (me) Not sure VET1 realizes the turmoil of Trump is about CHANGE.  A HALF CENTURY of a single mindset and still producing policies from 1970 .  Trump had his work cut out for him and NObody else -- especially from government experience - was going to break up the party.   

MY BRILLIANT FORECAST --- AT least a couple months old. I want to put money on this option in Vegas....

Biden won't be on the ballot. He is a Forlorn Hope to get to the starting gate. Hillary is the Dark Horse and a demographic female will be the VP pick. It will raise massive left excitement but Trump may still win.

*Trump did all of this while fighting flagrant abuse and impeachment charges.

At least Trump wasn’t involved in killing Americans, shipping weapons to terrorists, funding terrorists, manipulating the FBI and God knows how many other agencies. 

The left started trying to impeach before he was ever sworn in!!

Obama is to this day trying to undermine OUR President by underhandedly dealing with foreign leaders and has involvement in this Flynn situation ~ both of which (and more) make him a TRAITOR!

Please explain to me why you have a problem with OUR president? Because he has misspoke a few times? Tell me when you find a perfect person, please....I’ll wait!

I’ll tell you why, because the media has skewed him in such a negative light and unfairly report his accomplishments to undermined those achievements! Why? Because the media is complicit in every single thing this man is trying to undo! 

Start thinking for yourself!

A Problem in River City - VIRUS mismanagement

https://www.bitchute.com/video/rs4kgRfC4BlY

This video may be a bit accusatory but a lot of doctors are tired of being told how to manage an epidemic by generic rules from a bureaucracy.  Most doctors are doctors because they are experts in many of the same fields as the bureaucrats. SO ...there is push-back.  The Facebook police have already buried this video and Twitter is right behind.  BUT ...a voice needs to be heard.  If it is silenced - there is great distrust of the filter police.

This doctor has a grudge -- but she also makes as much sense as any of the career bureaucratic doctors in government.

More from this Phd Virologist

NOTES:  She says she is not an ANTI-VAXER --  she very much FOR Vaccines.
.................... but vaccine production methods can bring more problems...

She notes the use of Mouse Brains to grown the virus for attenuation so a vaccine can be produced that is not deadly but will still force body defenses to produce antibodies against the disease in question.  I connected with this- recalling a RABIES vaccine I marketed for veterinary use years ago. It was produced by growing the virus in  BABY MOUSE BRAINS which were harvested and then treated to "kill"the virus but leave an intact shell that would stimulate antibodies in the vaccinated animal.    THAT is indeed how it is done.  It is done for MANY VACCINES this way. So -- the stray virus that is harmless to a mouse -- at some point or several points - has transferred to the vaccine product along with the intended virus transfer.  
...............   Makes you THINK....   

From Baby Grapes - comes juice of the grape and the wine of the gods.  Biology makes it happen.   (see rebuttal below)

Under this fb post Oscar Garza offers several rebuttals. One is included here.
( https://www.facebook.com/1547196025/posts/10221987530027808/ )

Judy Mikovits 🤦‍♀️
"1) Is not and has never been a leading HIV/AIDS scientist. She has three first-author papers related to HIV/AIDS. The one with the most citations was published in 1998 has 167 citations. If you did *anything* related to HIV/AIDS that was revolutionary or even really important 22 years ago, you'd be looking at a paper with 10's of thousands of citations.

https://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C32&q=+judy+mikovits&oq=mikovit&fbclid=IwAR263AubND_cUBMP8TLFKcjLKpX4VUEncQbuXhHkpYUoc7tNyoFk-I0pwvE

2) Her most "influential" work was in a Science paper on retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Other labs tried to reproduce the results and were completely unable to do so. She admitted to having worked with contaminated samples, but then she was also caught having manipulated data published in that paper on multiple occasions in presentations. The Science paper was fully retracted, has never been reproduced, and was shown by further experiments to be completely false. When it became clear that she manipulated data in the publication and other instances, she was fired. She stole her lab notebooks and data to cover up her fraud, and a warrant was issued for her arrest. All scientists sign contracts with their employer stating that raw data and notebooks are the property of the institutions for just these reasons. It's exactly what should have happened in this case.

https://www.chicagotribune.com/lifestyles/health/chi-chronic-fatigue-syndrome-paper-10032011-story.html?fbclid=IwAR2umeDuj_lj29jdmAcL0ejYGTO5O4aw__n-gOnyfp9R8dOLcXDPP6a0nfs

3) She has no idea what she's talking about half the time. Here's a video of her talking about SARS-CoV-2, in which she blames "5G" and "6G". Watch around 2:50 where she says that ferritin in the blood "can happen through 5G and 60 [6G?] gigahertz literally releasing the iron from the hemoglobin." She clearly thinks that the "G" in "5G" means gigahertz, which it doesn't. It means "generation" (5G = 5th generation). She's just making things up, and not even intelligently enough to make it sound believable. Also, the energy of photons at the frequencies used in 5G are many orders of magnitude smaller than the binding energy of iron in hemoglobin. Also, most places with SARS-CoV-2 do not have 5G. It's barely been rolled out. It's all pure nonsense, which she says with absolute conviction, indicating just how big of a moron she is.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8rbY7ampII

So let's all please stop acting as though Judy Mikovits has anything impactful to say about anything, let alone SARS-CoV-2. She doesn't."

Here's another thorough obliteration:
