  3. Who ever coined the terminology "The cream rises to the top" must of have had General James Mattis in mind, what a Marine, what a man, what a gentleman, what a leader SEMPER FIDELAS carry-on Marine OORAH With President Trump's choices for his cabinet he definitely had a pretty big learning curve I believe was due to the fact he is not a politician (precisely why we elected him) I Also believe in the beginning of his term he had picked some individuals purely out of loyalty but three individuals really stand out that is General Michael Flynn, General John Kelly & General James Matt is all three are the opitomy of of always faithful, I know perhaps some may question Michael Flynn however I do not think he lied history may bare witness to that, he fell victim to the incessant political attacks from the deepest darkest depths of the DC swamp.

  4. IF YOU ARE WONDERING WHY HE HAS SUCH BAGS UNDER HIS EYS , ITS BECAUSE HE HAS NOT SLEPT IN 40 YEARS . HE HAS SPENT HIS LIFE ! PROTECTING A UN GRATEFUL LEFT WING NATION . BUT DO NOT THANK HIM FOR YOUR FREEDOM. JUST WISH YOU COULD BE HIM . AND SLEEP IN PEACE. HE HAS KEPT THE MONSTER UNDER YOUR BED , AT BAY FOR ALL OF HIS WATCH ! SLEEP IN PEACE LEFT WING LIBERAL. !
