America Needs a Real Leader

By | August 27, 2021

[August 27, 2021]   America is pointed in the wrong direction.  Only a sycophant, willfully blind to reality and acting the part of useful idiots, believes otherwise.  And this is no temporary misstep or just a fluke.  America is headed in the wrong direction because Marxist leftists run it. Now, more than ever, America needs a real leader.

The history of Marxists and the human condition is there for the lesson we should have been taking for it.  What happened recently and is unfolding today in Afghanistan is a feature of what is wrong with President Biden’s Administration.

America’s reputation is blemished; the scar will be there forever.  Moreover, what leftists have done to the U.S. military is, frankly, unforgivable.  The purpose of our Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force is to protect and defend the United States.  Since World War II, we also help stabilize the world by contributing to international organizations such as NATO and the UN.

The French, Dutch, and British armies orchestrated a well-organized rescue effort of their citizens with militaries smaller than ours and with fewer resources.  Even worse, our bumbling political bureaucrats told these nations to stop their rescue efforts because they are embarrassing to the United States.

“Biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.” – former Secretary of Defense Rober Gates

America needs a real leader.  No more cutsie time for us to use a phrase Dan Bongino likes.  President Biden says he is in charge.  Great, but that means is that he must take the blame for his epic strategic blunders in Afghanistan, the open Southern border, spiking economic inflation, out-of-control crime, and a divided nation.  He has, so far, failed to do so.

“Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to F*** things up.” – then-President Barack Obama in 2020

We see with our own eyes, through the tinted lenses of a pro-Biden, pro-leftist press, the disasters produced by leftist thinking.  Even they cannot hide it from us.

America needs to find a President like “Mad” Anthony Wayne, Ulysses S. Grant, John J. Pershing, George Patton, “Chesty” Puller, or Bull Halsey.  Then, of course, we would have a lot of house cleaning to do in Congress, as well.

The Biden Administration lacks the intelligence, moral character, and fortitude to correct the disasters they’ve put in place.  Images coming in over the past few weeks show us a leadership gap that must be filled with competent, solid and real leaders.  Joe Biden and his sycophants have failed that test.

    Gen. Satterfield, very well written and thought out. Yes, America does need a real leader. The problem? Too many of us are sucked in by the Marxist ideology that the government is Santa Claus. Give me Give me Give me…. the refrain of a lost soul.

      I’m new here, so thank you all for your comments. I’ve been reading this leader blog for a few months and enjoy it immensely. American Girl, well said. I agree we are suckered into believing in Marxism. The reason is that we no longer teach history.

    Yes, excellent article, Gen. Satterfield. To the point and you sure did put a wrecking ball on Biden’s attempt to be a leader.

    This crushing disaster in Afghanistan is also a sign of things to come. In these parts of the world, “honor” is power. You are honored if you are strong and can humiliate and defeat your enemies. Nice guys don’t just finish last; they are ground into the dust.

      Right, either you have it or you don’t. Team Biden doesn’t have it and never will, regardless how feckless or demented he becomes. Forever, Biden will be known as the worst president the United States ever elected. Jimmy Carter is still alive and is thanking the heavens that he was finally surpassed by someone dumber and less worthy of holding the title of President of the United States.

    You have to give President Biden credit for consistency. Unfortunately, he has been consistently wrong.

    Biden is a cross between a head-in-the-sand ostrich and a low-life snake. Yet, he fooled millions to vote for him. What’s up with that?

      I can only say that Americans are some of the dumbest people on earth. They are no longer taught history or economics. They study the shopping mall. And, the love the glare of the television and movie theater. No real training in leadership. Cheers.

          Yeah, but still an insult. However, I have to admit success when I see it. The Brits are evacuating their people out now and are being rather good at it. Now that our Marines and Army are more interested in white supremacy and right wing terrorists, it is okay for the Taliban to take over and humiliate us. Look the other way, folks.

    Great opinion article, Gen. Satterfield. I love the way to tell things the way they are and don’t pull punches at all.

    If you read this blog site often, you will come to the conclusion that Gen. Satterfield tries hard to be diplomatic but when issues boil up like this one in Afghanistan, he reaches a point that he tells us the real poop and gives us a no-s**t look into his thinking. That is what real leaders do.

      You got that right, Jonnie. That is just one of the reasons I read this website on leadership. I also wait for a gem like the one we have today. Go Gen. Satterfield. Kick ’em in the balls. Ha Ha. Leftists world dominating wannabes have stumble up the stairs once again.

      She ran away to get the frick out of the US so she won’t be blamed for the carnage Joe wrought upon the world.

      Runs away like any coward. If she had any brains – all betw her legs now – she would make a firm comment on the disaster unfolding in Afghanistan. Gen. S. has given us a great summary of this thoughts in today’s article. Folks, take it to heart.

        Another smack down of Kamala Harris. Is she really the VP of the US? She surely does not act like it. She is another embarrassment to AMerica. Now we know why so many people don’t believe women should be in politics, because they run at the first sign of trouble.

          Excellent point, Mr. K III. I miss your articles, BTW. Please give us another one. We want to read about you and others kicking commie booties.

        Yep, she’s a real coward all right. Just look at her and the southern border how well she handled that fiasco.
