Skip to comments.Mattis Was No Good

American Thinker readers were warned about General Mattis over a year ago in this article. Briefly, Mattis was and remains a supporter of global warming.
The issue of global warming continues to be a reliable and simple litmus test. If someone believes in global warming, then you can be sure he is a globalist who loathes Western civilization. (SNIP)
Since that article, Mattis's charge sheet has expanded somewhat. Trump wanted to get trannies out of the military simply because of the costs involved in having them. Mattis pushed back and slow-walked the order. Gender dysphoria is one of the worst mental illnesses, with a 50 percent suicide rate. Who in his right mind would leave people suffering from this condition near weapons or machinery? Someone who ranks ideology above effectiveness and unit cohesion would.

You disagree ? Not much of a stretch, imho.
A little bit in the weeds on the F-25, but yes, a very good article. I have always been a little uneasy with Mattis. The globull warming thing is always a sign of unbalance. The whole slow-walk of getting rid of the transvestites in the military was quite troubling.
But I have to be honest. Much of Trump’s big problems have been self-inflicted. For whatever reason, Trump has continually made a series of head scratching, flat-out, BAD hires.
There was a definite change after the lincoln fiasco; All shifted north w/a sharp left turn that never self-corrected!
EXCELLENT article. No wonder the globalist GOPe are up in arms about MATIS’s retirement.
perhaps Mattis is moving on to judge something, somewhere
Mattis was not a bad hire from military perspective which was his job. But he shouldn’t dabble in liberal ideology. Shame to see that override his military duty to country.
Make Pence Sec of Defense, Nikki Haley VP. I hear that a lot.
He served his purpose, time to move on...
Did you know:
Obama lost in first two years:
Chief of Staff
Secretary of Defense
Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers
National Security Adviser
And don’t forget that HHS-designate Tom Daschle couldn’t even make it past the Senate
Most of them are below average or average-IQ white people who advanced way beyond their abilities in "education", and their common feature is not hatred of Western civilization but the fact that they "believe in science".
Not that they "understand what science is" or "value the method" - they think the fact that they "believe in it" means they are smart, when, of course, it means the opposite.
desertification is a real world problem.
Pardon Gen Flynn and appoint him WH COS!
I have thought that General Mattis was not a Trump Supporter for some time. However, I wonder if this pull back from Syria and Afghanistan is not a response for Saudi Arabia’s recent actions. By their murder of Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi’s proved again what their true nature is. We have been guaranteeing their security for decades without them paying for it with the idea of keeping a stable oil supply. President Trump stated that their would be consequences for their actions, and he is withdrawing his military support for them. Also, in Afghanistan, it has been a money pit that we have financially supported since 2001. If you read Trump’s statements, it is obvious to me that he no longer views us as the ‘policeman’ for the world, if we are not compensated for it. I think it is strickly business. The downside is that the only country worth supporting in the area is Israel, but they are capable of protecting their own interest. In the end, they will be alone militarily, but again, they have prepared for that possibility. I sure as hell don’t believe that this is a sign of cowardice, as was the case of Obama, but in preservation of our assets and making others pay for their own interest. Just my opinion, but there is more going on than meets the eye. President Trump is reshuffling the deck and a major change is happening. I don’t know what direction he will take us, but ‘status quo’ has never been Trump’s MO...
“The issue of global warming continues to be a reliable and simple litmus test.”
All you need to know as to whether to write that person off as a rational human being.
After a while, it became futile nation building, and Obama won the WH.
Today, many of us are tired of the wasted lives and billions fighting wars which we are not allowed to win. Trump changed that and results are now evident, making this withdrawal plausible, if not wise.
Trump's instincts are right on. This article comforts me that our resources are largely unneeded today, and considering the situation at home, better spent defending our country.
But I have to be honest. Much of Trumps big problems have been self-inflicted. For whatever reason, Trump has continually made a series of head scratching, flat-out, BAD hires.
Like Tillerson who supported gays in Boy Scouts?
“Trump has continually made a series of head scratching, flat-out, BAD hires.”
Trump is coming from the business world, where he gained success from making his own decisions, as opposed to allowing others to think for him. This being the case, when he needs a position filled, he is going to grab a tool from what is in his range of view. If it doesn’t work, he can replace it.
For good or ill, this is the man we have in the White House. Remember, we didn’t want a political insider in there when we voted for him.
Good article, thanks for posting.
