President Donald Trump hammered the military-industrial complex during a press conference on Labor Day.
Trump talked about his foreign policy agenda at the press conference in reference to recent fake news reports that he called dead military personnel “losers” and “suckers.” The president noted that his policy to bring the troops home have offended military brass in the national defense swamp.
“I’m not saying the military’s in love with me — the soldiers are, the top people in the Pentagon probably aren’t because they want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy,” Trump said to the reporters.

This is not the first time that President Trump has exposed the military-industrial complex. He has frequently expressed a view of foreign policy that has been echoed by former President Dwight D. Eisenhower and former Texas Congressman Ron Paul.
“I’m the one that talks about these wars that are 19 years and people are just there, and don’t kid yourself, we do have a military-industrial complex. They do like war!” Trump said during an interview on “The Next Revolution” with Steve Hilton.
“You have people here in Washington, they never want to leave!” Trump continued.
“If it was up to them, they’d bring thousands of soldiers in. Someday, people will explain it, but you do have… you do have a group, and they call it ‘the military-industrial complex.’ They never want to leave. They always want to fight. No, I don’t want to fight,” the president said.
Big League Politics reported on the origin of the unverified smear against President Trump regarding military personnel and how the falsehood came from a man who was one of the propaganda masters behind the Iraq War:
The latest phony media controversy to malign President Donald Trump and impede his “America First” agenda is pertaining to comments he allegedly made to disparage military personnel in 2018.
The claim, published in The Atlantic, is that Trump called fallen soldiers “suckers” and “losers” when opting not to attend an American military cemetery in France. The article is based off of nothing but anonymous sources and has been rebutted on the record by many individuals who were on the trip with Trump.
The author of the article is long-time journalist Jeffrey Goldberg, a notorious war hawk who has a vested interest in keeping U.S. forces deployed overseas. He opposes President Trump’s non-interventionist foreign policy to bring the troops home and stop being the world policeman.
Goldberg was one of the chief propagandists who duped the American public into supporting the Iraq War. He was responsible for publishing the fake news that Iraq had connections with Al Qaeda.
He wrote an article in the New Yorker back in 2002 arguing that Iraq was the “great terror,” Saddam Hussein was guilty of genocide, and Iraq had “possible ties” to Al Qaeda…
After publishing his piece in the New Yorker, Goldberg made the media rounds to sell the public further on the necessity of the war effort.
The military-industrial complex is trying to destroy Trump’s reputation before November’s general election because they want a pawn in the White House who will make sure that the U.S. occupation of the Middle East never comes to an end.
Sen. Josh Hawley Folds? Blames Trump for ‘Inflammatory, Irresponsible, Wrong’ Comments
Hawley is no leader.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has been criticized for leading the GOP’s electoral college objection amidst widespread allegations of voter fraud, and he has responded by throwing former President Donald Trump under the bus.
Hawley issued a statement to oppose the impeachment of Trump following the conclusion of his presidency, which is unprecedented and unlawful, in which he threw Trump under the bus and essentially blamed him for the violence in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
HAWLEY: "I think ex-president's rhetoric on the day was inflammatory. I think it was irresponsible. I think it was wrong. But I think that this impeachment effort is, I mean, I think it's blatantly unconstitutional. It's a really really, really dangerous precedent."

In the aftermath of the violence, many left-wing voices accused Hawley of sedition and treason for asking for an investigation into a laundry list of irregularities that have been widely ignored by authorities.
There have even been calls by Democrats to revoke the will of the people by ejecting Hawley from office in order to punish him for drawing attention to voter fraud, as Big League Politics has reported:
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
Hawley finally caved under the pressure, and he has shown he is not the man to take the reigns to lead the America First movement after Trump.
