This is from last month, but didn’t get much if any airtime in the mainstream media, or even Fox News for that matter. The gutless establishment RINOs had a great opportunity to do SOMETHING right for the first time in the Obama presidency. But, of course the spineless, democrat-lite, self-serving RINOs led by John Boehner 2.0 (a.k.a. Paul Ryan), and Mitch “The Turtle” McConnell folded like lawn chairs on the deck of the Titanic.
They could have easily stopped most of the Obama tyranny had they been concerned about honoring their oath of office more than they were worried about keeping their seat at the table of power with their perks and salaries.
This is why ALL of Washington DC needs to be COMPLETELY reset.
Senate Republicans caved on everything in the budget

A leader cannot lead without the trust and loyalty of those who are being asked to follow him. Such is the case with Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. Mark A. Welsh III. He has come to epitomize the type of “leader” remaining in our military following the Obama purge. Leaders who refuse to do anything other than salute smartly and say “YES, SIR!“, even when the orders being followed are blatantly destroying the nation and Constitution they have sworn to defend. There is no conceivable way Welsh could NOT have known the enormity of the problem we were facing, yet he went ahead with, and even accelerated the mortal wound of a manpower cut. Now, in the face of a tsunami largely of his own creation, he seems to grow a spine and a pair of open eyes. My only question is WHY NOW??? Is this like a deathbed confession? Does he actually possess the character to do the right thing even at the risk of throwing away his career and retirement? Based on what I have seen from the “leaders” groomed for senior positions by the system created and perpetuated by these same people, you can just say I’m skeptical. The usual pattern for these cowards is to sit and twiddle thumbs until they retire, move on to some cushy consulting job, and suddenly develop enough of a conscience to start sniping from the outside where they have little to no effect. I’m sorry, but if our “leaders” aren’t willing to fall on their sword for what is RIGHT while they are still in a position to effect change and INSPIRE FOLLOWERS, they are not the kind of people our military, or our nation need.
In Total Reversal, Welsh Admits Air Force is On Verge of Manpower Collapse
“Virtually every mission area” faces critical manning shortages, and the Air Force risks burning airmen out. “We’re at 82 to 85 percent manning levels in virtually every mission area,” Welsh said during a discussion Tuesday at the Atlantic Council in Washington, D.C. “We can’t reach in someplace and grab more manpower to fix a problem anymore. And so we have got to figure out different ways of using our people in a more efficient way or we will wear them out. And if we lose them, we lose everything.”
