FOR YOUR EYES ONLY – Today’s PDB Includes a variety of critical topics including how US forces plan to counter China, Army’s New Focus on Irregular Warfare, North Korea’s first missile Test Challenges Biden, how rogue regimes such as Iran, North Korea, Russia and China are coordinating against the US. 

Plus, the battle for defense budgets highlights the high costs of much needed US military modernization programs, especially for critical nuclear forces.

And did some groups coordinate prior to the Capitol attack? Plus, much more.

With the multitude of national security and intelligence topics that American Defense News (ADN) cannot adequately cover every day – we are providing our readers a PDB – not the President’s Daily Brief, but almost as good – Paul’s Daily Briefing.

We need to keep our military strong because of the world condition.

North Korea didn’t threaten our president. The Delaware Dunce is a coprolitic imbecile barely able to read a teleprompter. Certainly, he’s not sufficiently lucid to recognize an international military threat. This poor afflicted incompetent doesn’t realize he’s North Korea’s ally imperiling those he’s supposed to protect. The operative question is who are the North Koreans threatening. They hope to intimidate the little people.

Seems to me a small cabal of billionaires is a partner to North Korea and using an army of marionettists who serve as buffers to deflect blame as well as manipulate the strings of a chosen marionette. Their choice of course is the Delaware Dunce.  He’s the perfect choice because he’s vulnerable to the cabal. He can be prosecuted at any moment because he participated in the biggest crime in U.S. history.

SNIFF & BLOW GOTTA GO! TIME TO IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

Can you continue to tolerate gasoline prices, product prices all going up, the WH being run by Harris, Pelosi and Schumer? Literally destroying our country, allowing thousands upon thousands of illegals into our country bringing in God knows what diseases?

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!
