On June 10, 2020 President Donald Trump declared that he “will not even consider” renaming Army bases that use names from Confederate military leaders after leading Pentagon officials floated their support for the idea.
In several tweets, Trump contended that the bases form an integral part of American history and should not be “tampered with.”
“These Monumental and very Powerful Bases have become part of a Great American Heritage, and a history of Winning, Victory, and Freedom,” Trump tweeted. The president highlighted how “HEROES” who participated in America’s victories in both world wars received training on the “Hallowed Grounds” of the bases.
“Therefore, my Administration will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations,” Trump added.
The Hill reported that “Minutes after Trump posted his comments, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany began Wednesday’s briefing by distributing them to reporters and reading them in their entirety from the podium.”
“That was directly from the president. We spent some time working on that, and I wanted to deliver that to you,” she stated.
Trump’s tweets came two days following an Army spokesman declaring that Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy and Defense Secretary Mark Esper are “open” to giving the bases new names.
During discussions about the Army bases, other military branches have banned the display of the Confederate battle flag over the past week.
On June 5, 2020, the Marine Corps issue guidelines which banned public displays of the flag, “including on clothing, mugs, posters and bumper stickers, following up on Commandant Gen. David Berger’s February commitment to do so.”
The Navy announced on June 9 that it would also ban the flag on bases and ships.
President Trump understands the Left unlike most of his Republican colleagues.
Their push to destroy American history is part of a larger plot to undermine American civil liberties.
Think about it, the Left is on the warpath against historical figures who were slaveholders or held racist beliefs. By the Left’s logic, not only do these individuals’ memories merit erasure, but their concepts should also be discredited. From there, American civil liberties established during the early years of the Republic are fair game for the iconoclasts because a few of them were slave owners or who held unconventional views on race.
America is entering uncharted waters and the Right cannot afford to get caught flat-footed in this battle.
The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him
Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.
President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.
On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”
An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.
The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”
In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”
“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.
Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.
Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
