FOR YOUR EYES ONLY – 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.

Today’s PDB Includes a variety of critical issues such as the growing battles over the critical U.S. defense budget as liberals look to axe much needed military investments, JCS condemns Myanmar military’s violence against civilians, Russian troops increasing on Ukraine border and Russian aircraft enter Alaska’s Air Defense ID Zone. Also – was the Pentagon ready for the Suez Canal blockage?

And why is the Defense Department hiding the numbers of illegal migrants to be housed on U.S. military bases?

Plus – former Trump National Security Advisor John Bolton says U.S. must confront North Korea via China.

TODAY’S PDB HIGHLIGHTS:

National Security

Storm Clouds Ahead: Musings About the 2022 Defense Budget

Pentagon said it was ready for extended Suez Canal blockage. After a container ship twice as heavy as a Ford-class carrier halted traffic through the Suez Canal for nearly a week, the Defense Department emphasized that it prepares for this type of scenario.

China Threat – Myanmar

Joint Statement of Chiefs of Defense Condemning Military-Sponsored Violence in Myanmar. America’s Joint Chiefs joined the military leaders from nearly a dozen other countries to condemn the violence Saturday by Myanmar’s Armed Forces. 

Russia Threat

Build Up of Russian Troops Along Ukraine Border.  Ukrainian Commander-in-Chief Ruslan Khomchak says that Russia is building up troops along its border, and says the move poses a threat to Ukrainian security.  This comes as both countries blame each other for ceasefire violations as violence continues.

While the world tore its hair out over the Suez, Russia saw an opportunity

Russian Tu-142s enter Alaskan Air Defense Identification Zone. The Alaskan North American Aerospace Defense Region early March 29 tracked two Russian Tu-142 maritime patrol aircraft entering the Alaskan Air Defense Identification Zone, Alaskan Command announced.

North Korea Threat

Biden must confront North Korea via Beijing by John Bolton

US Military – Special Operations Forces

The infinite game: How the US Army plans to operate in great power competition

Why Special Operations Oversight Should Matter to Every American

Homeland Security

DOD and HHS mum on how many migrant children they will house on military bases. The Pentagon and Department of Health and Human Services continue to conceal just how many unaccompanied migrant children will be housed at military bases across the United States.

END of PDB

ISN’T IT 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!

The Biden Socialist Regime is worried about new hairstyles and Maturinity Flight Suits for Women while Russia, Iran, and the Communist Chinese Party are building their Military to Kill Americans and take over the world. But not to worry, our people will be dressed a lot better than theirs’s and the new hairdos are to die for, literally.
