POTUS AT THE ARMY NAVY GAME: IN COMMAND

TRUMP AND AMERICA

Never saw this with the other fellow: Trump's the man.

Saturday, 8 December:

The day after the attack on Pearl Harbor was eerily quiet.

Outside of the sounds of desperate rescue attempts on the capsized USS Oklahoma as jackhammers pounded on the hull. They were hoping to get out trapped men now terribly short on breathing air.

One of the first of many unsung heroes of that war was a local civilian yard worker named Julio DeCastro. He organized a team that rescued 32 sailors. Overall, though a sense of dread fill the air, there was what Admiral Isoruku Yamamoto correctly predicted:

A 'terrible resolve'.

Once again, the American people were sadly underestimated by a deliberate foe. The country went from a second world largely agricultural society to the mightiest nation since ancient Rome in just about 44 months.

Big mistake attacking America while asleep. We historically like our leisure time, and will basically do anything to keep it. That's the price of a meritocracy; lazy and shiftless need not apply.

We'll still take care of them. Just don't import the whole world to join in.

However, these people, these Americans, have a point of no return. There does come a time when the decision to fight for not ony what you want, but what is good for your children's children.

The best way forward for the planet. It needs to be defined by personal freedom and acceptance of responsibility that goes with it, guided by a gentle, benign government.

This feeling, this ideology if you want, is rife within the growing -and it is growing fast- support for the 45th president and the worldwide movement the media desperately tries to ignore. The simple fact that the human soul yearns to be free is not a fiction.

For the True Believers among us, the idea of 'collective salvation' is not only absurd, but evilly so.  That would amount to spiritual fratricide. Dark places await.

Not good. Particularly right now, with the celebration of the Prince of Peace close at hand. The time when people of all stripes can unite in a harmony found nowhere else. It is the most precious of times because it threatens the most.

You can't commit to a secular state if you choose a Higher Authority.

You can work together with one, but only on an agreed set of rules, and that IS the 'Judeo-Christian' ethos of laws that bind us as a nation. Which, of course, is only as good as the enforcement arm that protects it.

In the United States we elect a president who's first duty is to protect the nation.

We then trust this individual to make decisions in our name to advance the commonweal of the body politic. Meaning, 'America First'. The author here will add 'Last, and Always' to the saying as well.

Call it editorializing if you want. Fine.

Over the past decades this trust has been eroded. Badly. Endless wars, profligate spending, nebulous activities with foreign subjects, an erosion of ideals and values. This was why the current president was elected against all odds.

It's a matter of trust. One of 'Q's favorite words. It means a lot of different things that all end up in 'honor'. POTUS has pledged this to the country, and if you know one thing about the man at all is he takes this stuff deadly serious.

It is the most Christian of concepts, although not exclusive to it.

If you cannot trust your neighbor, your co-worker or your government the system is in deep trouble. This is now being addressed. It explains why the people who got us all here in the first place are so desperately unhappy.

For this 'sacred trust' to exist you  still need arms and Armies to protect it.

Today our country put on it's finest display of why the US is the envy of the world. The event? The annual Army-Navy football game. One of the best athletic sporting events to be staged. 

Any great athlete can play in a SuperBowl, or World Series. But not everyone can adhere to strict military discipline, play a superb brand of football, maintain a code of conduct second to none while getting a 4.0 GPA.

In advanced curriculum; not Sociology 101.

They meet in a festive atmosphere that respects the game, the traditions, and each other. The cleanest brand of competition is always on display, the handful of penalties all minor. It is simply, a symbol of America at it's finest.

These kids, soon to be soldiers and sailors are also America's future. They also act the quintessential American; in spite of the spit and polish there was plenty of hooting and hollering.

The occasional goofy sunglasses on a Middy or a Cadet with the 'hang loose' hand sign snuck in. Just in case you didn't think them still college students. The energy and atmosphere are electric.

This is also because of just who was there.

The last 10 presidents have attended these games although Teddy Roosevelt attended his first one in 1903. The two acadamies have been grinding this out since 1879.

There was a difference this time. When President Donald J Trump walked out onto the field the place burst forth in a controlled, but deafening roar. Flanked by his military hierarchy and Sec Def Mattis at his side, he strolled out, well, like he owned the joint.

One thing was readily apparent: 

He was among friends. That was obvious. To say this particular president is beloved by his military is a massive understatement. THEY are the reason he's there in the first place. They know instinctively that he is there for them, their families, and this country.

Meanwhile, a superb and exciting game was there for all fans of the sport.

Army moved the ball well but had trouble scoring against a flexible but still tough Navy defense. Army showed quickness and agility; their pursuit on defense the highlight. Lot's of future Ranger and Green Beret officers on that field.

Navy had a great story as well. Linebackers Hudson Sullivan and Taylor Heflin are both playing their last football game. The two met at a Navy prep academy 5 years ago and have been best friends since.

They are also two of the best out there. Certainly Division 1 types with possible pro careers.

Instead these two will become Marine Corps officers. They will have a 100% chance of being deployed to a hostile region while they could have gotten a nice look at a NFL combine. 

The two combined for a big sack on Army QB Kelvin Hopkins that stopped a real TD drive.

Defensive coach Dale Pehrson simply said this of Heflin:

'He will make an excellent Marine' Of that there is little doubt, as will Sullivan.

The good stories don't stop there.

When CBS came back from break they paid tribute to retiring cameraman Neil McCaffery. Nicknamed 'Sarge', he joined the Marines in 1963 and saw combat in Vietnam.

The burly, broadshouldered McCaffery, now in his 70's, has been a fixture at CBS for 44 years and won 8 Emmys as well. CBS gave him a first class farewell. Thanks, Sarge and God bless.

Welcome home, too.

Navy made it interesting with a field goal with 30 seconds left to make it 17-10. But the Navy onside kick failed, and West Point wins for the third year in a row, Guess what else?

They will finish in the top 25 ranking of the NCAA. First time since 1996. There are BIG football schools out there that would have traded. Navy played well and acquitted themsleves beautifully.

Understand that many of these kids, among our best and brightest may either come back broken or never come back at all. 

This is 'Trump's America', it is our America. The one the Founders envisioned, sharp, motivated, dedicated and ready to lead. What has made us the envy of the world. Why we take more immigrants than any other nation because they WANT to avail themselves of this.

This Christmas season is a time for many things. 

To rejoice in the message of 'Peace on Earth', for sure. To understand that although goodness is expected, evil does indeed exist. That vigilance is required, and that a common thread has to unite us.

The country was on the verge of losing that thread.

No longer...
