Never is that statement more accurate than during political season. There are certain commentators and networks saying the left is truth. There are other commentators and networks saying the right is truth. You have fair and balanced networks with one of each side on the screen yelling at each other with their ‘spin’ and talking points.
The truth is not supposed to be that elusive.
In all honesty, I have never been political. I always thought I would do my job – be a U.S. Marine, a husband, a dad – and let the right and left slug it out.
I knew Washington was a mess, but I just didn't know how F-up it was – until September 11, 2012.
The 13 Hours where me and 5 of my brothers defied a stand down order and rushed in burning buildings to defend the Consulate and later defended the Annex in Benghazi, Libya. The 13 Hours where drones flew overhead, allowing the Administration to watch as 2 of my fellow brothers died. Allowing them to see 2 State Department leaders die, including the American Ambassador.
That night ‘politics’ greatly affected my life.
It left me with a lot of questions. Such as… why did we decide to overthrow the regime to begin with? Why were 600 requests for more security for one of the most dangerous regions in the world on the anniversary of 9/11 unanswered? Why did Hillary focus on making up a protest and finding a video to blame for the attack, lie to the families of the fallen over their coffins, lie to America, then delete thousands of emails?
Why didn’t the FBI, Congress, the Justice Department do their f’ing job? Why did no one answer for this debacle?
Well in my search for answers, it occurred to my team and I that there are 13 weeks left in this election. So look out libs, we decided to build and launch a truth initiative – an effort to try and influence this election for good by getting out the actual truth.
I hope you will join us. Stay tuned!
