The highest decorated officer still living, 4 star General Barry McCaffrey has publicly declared that the republican President Donald J. Trump is a serious threat to US national security. He is seeing what many of us have observed. The president walks, talks and acts like a Russian asset to where it is influencing his policy making. He has great difficulty when it comes to taking action against Russia interests when it conflicts with US national security interests.

Short History of General McCaffrey (Source:Military Times Hall Of Valor)

Barry McCaffrey graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Class of 1964. His combat tours included action in the Dominican Republic with the 82d Airborne Division in 1965, advisory duty with the Army of the Republic of Vietnam from 1966-67, and company command with the 1st Cavalry Division from 1968-69. He earned TWO Distinguished Service Crosses in Vietnam, in addition to TWO Silver Stars as well as other awards including 3 Purple Hearts. He retired as a U.S. Army (4-Star) General and, at the time of his retirement, was the youngest General in the Army. In retirement he gained notoriety as a news commentator, as well as in taking an active role in American Politics. He also returned to the Military Academy as an adjunct instructor.

On March 16, 2018, Jaqueline Thomsen of the Hill penned the following report, “Retired four-star Army general: Trump ‘serious threat to US national security’

A retired four-star Army general said that he believes that President Trumpis a “serious threat to US national security.”

“Retired Gen. Barry McCaffrey tweeted Friday that he reached the conclusion about Trump because the president “is refusing to protect vital US interests from active Russian attacks.”

“It is apparent that he is for some unknown reason under the sway of Mr. Putin,” he added. McCaffrey has also worked as an adjunct professor at West Point and led the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy for five years during the Clinton administration.”

“Trump has come under fire for his response to Russian interference in the U.S. election. The president has repeatedly hit the probe into Russian election meddling as a “witch hunt.”

“His administration unveiled new sanctions against Russian cyber groups involved in election meddling on Thursday, including individuals and groups charged with election interference by special counsel Robert Mueller.”

However, Trump had been criticized for not implementing sanctions against Russia earlier, after Congress passed a bipartisan bill last year giving him the power to do so.

“U.S. Cyber Command chief and National Security Agency (NSA) Director Adm. Michael Rogers testified before the Senate last month that he hadn’t received instructions from Trump to take additional steps to deter Russian cyber-attacks aimed at U.S. elections.”


    • Dear Suzanne,

      For us it is not a surprise but now this man of some stature and substance is saying it where those who want to pretend differently, realize that there is nowhere to hide.

    • Dear Hugh,

      The US Congressional republicans will get on-board in taking their oversight duties more seriously when they are faced with the news that they may lose any future elections because of their inaction to protect our country against the likes of Russia.

      Hugs, Gronda


  1. Gronda, we have been saying the same thing for some time. He is not the only one to think this. I just hope more folks who have more credibility and celebrity say it. Quite simply, other leaders do not trust him and have to prepare for that, he is attacking our allies with binary thinking on zero-sum trade, he is bellicose and has depleted his diplomatic core, and his more rational advisors are having less input. What could go wrong? Keith

    • Dear Keith,

      As more of General McCaffrey’s stature come out to say the obvious which is, our president is a danger to our US democracy, it tears off the blinders of the those GOP members who want to pretend otherwise.

      This next week, I’ll be calling every legislator in the US Congress to demand a bill to protect the jobs of DOJ’s Rod Rosenstein and FBI’s Special Counsel Robert Mueller III. And I’ll be asking them to protect Andrew McCabe’s pension. The US Congress has to send a message to the president to step down on his attacks based on political motives.

      Hugs, Gronda
