Silence is Consent
Because I proudly worked in the Intelligence Community for nearly thirty years before catching a nasty cold called leukemia, out of a sense of duty and obligation I rarely discuss publicly matters that involve it.
However, because of my complete and utter disdain for Trump’s ascendency to the presidency, from the very beginning of his campaign to this very moment, it is hard for me to remain silent as he, to serve only his self-interests, politicizes the national security of the country he’s been voted in to protect by dismissing assessed serious acts of aggression by a foreign power and, while doing so, denigrates and shows a complete lack of understanding and respect for a community I know to be amassed with good, honest folk who want nothing more than to serve their country honorably in their humble efforts to keep it safe.
Because of Trump and his self-serving interests, we are a less secure, more vulnerable nation.
Even before taking office, Trump has failed us as Commander-in-Chief of the United States.
