The Trump Presidency...

Killing British soldiers with USA Boston IRA funded Barretts from south of the neutral border is not war, that's terrorism...... sorry Goldbricker, you will now have to google all that to produce at least one coherent comment today..

It was actually a republican

Dwight Eisenhower in late 1944 initiated the 5th platoon concept

Black soldiers would be able to serve in White infantry units. NCO's would take a bust to Pvt. Ike needed 1,500 men, he got 5,500 volunteers from rear area quartermaster and signal, truck units

53 rifle platoons were formed. in some units they fought as a homogenous platoon, in others they were put into squads with the white soldiers





As to Truman-

View attachment 540043
Ike’s measures were driven by the need for infantry and were mainly limited to the ETA. Truman’s EO in 1948 applied to the entire military and was rightfully seen as a major blow against segregation. The two acts are not comparable.

And yes, as a southerner Truman was raised a racist. Like many people of that time, he eventually recognized the evils of racism and changed his views. His insistence on a civil rights plank in the 1948 Democratic Party platform energized the civil rights movement and laid the groundwork for the Civil Rights Act.

The problem is that the Americans don't have a small middle ( Indepentent) party.... left or Right, but they could be the rudder that guides the ship.

Kill the idiot before he does more harm.
 
That's the socialist way surely?
For shame, Helm! Don't you know that a government job with healthcare and perks [aid for by the state and withheld from the common citizen is the very definition of manly capitalism and self-reliance?

Georgia has one of the largest serving and ex military populations, they just elected two democrats, a balck pastor and a Jewish man. One of the early debunked claims of election fraud was the number of postal votes for Biden coming in from service personel overseas. They thought they were fraudulent because the Republicans expectation was that the military would vote Trump.
 
Did you read his book or listen to his Oxford Union address?

I listened to the Oxford Union Debate on YouTube year ago. It was interesting to hear his side of the story without the usual media sensationalism.

I think things would have turned out better for him if he had not acted like an utter tw4t.

From The Washington Post:

As Americans prepare for President Trump to leave the White House, they face a sickening reality: Nearly 400,000 people have died of covid-19 under his watch.

His administration led a bungled response from the start, health experts have repeatedly said, for which the nation has paid a devastating price. American deaths make up 20 percent of the global toll which just crossed 2 million — despite being just 4.25 percent of the world's population.

The coronavirus is putting an early end to more than 3,000 lives per day as the country focuses on threats of more political violence in Trump's name following the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. In the most alarming announcement on mutations yet, experts at the CDC said Friday that they expect the spread to get much worse. In every scenario the CDC examined, it found the highly contagious U.K. variant will become the dominant source of infections in the United States in March.

The nation needs a coherent vaccination strategy now more than ever. Production at Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna is increasing enough that more than 70 percent of adults could be able to get the two-shot vaccination by the end of July. But, as we have learned, the existence of doses does not guarantee shots in arms.

A promising announcement earlier this week from Operation Warp Speed — that the government would release more vaccine doses that were being held in reserve — was dashed when the group admitted to states that the reserves never existed. Officials had hoped to expand access to millions of elderly people and those with high-risk medical conditions. One state health official called the revelation “extremely disturbing.”

Actually, I think the military became pretty jaundiced with Trump. But, that does not necessarily translate to being card-carrying Democrats. I suspect that the US Armed Forces still sit predominantly in the Republican camp, but with a strong minority on the Democrat right (I understand Tulsi Gabbard has quite a steady following, being one of the few contemporary US politicians who has served).

Whether anything happens on 20 Jan or not, this is going to get ugly as the US authorities trace and track down Steamboat's FB buddies.

'Neo-nazi groups have called on US troops to join their cause and murder politicians just hours after the Pentagon reminded its soldiers to “defend the constitution”.

'The Joint Chiefs of Staff know they have a hate-group crisis in their ranks. They just don’t know how bad. And putting thousands of armed men and women in and around the Capitol on inauguration day could explode in their face.

'Ousted from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, neo-Nazis have turned to encrypted instant messaging service Telegram to urge their followers to seek out and assassinate politicians. “Strike the iron while it’s hot. The rats have addresses,” one post declares. In particular, they’re targeting National Guard reservists and active-duty members of the military. “Gather your local trusted militia and do what you must to save this country and our people from their hellish claws that clamp down on the souls of us all,” another neo-Nazi account implores.

'Now the FBI has formally warned state Governors of armed groups planning attacks in all 50 state capitals. Some 20,000 National Guard from across the country is mobilising within Washington DC for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. They’ve been authorised to carry loaded weapons. But will they be a help – or a hindrance

“The goal of those in DC should be to make turncoats of all those national guardsmen,” reads a neo-Nazi Telegram post uncovered by Vice. “Many have anonymously expressed their support. Take advantage.”
