Breaking: Top Republican Found Dead

Donald Rumsfeld, who as Secretary of Defense under Bush Jr declared that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, leading to the Iraq War, has died age 88.

In a statement on Twitter, his family announced the passing of Rumsfeld, who they described as “an American statesman and devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather.” Rumsfeld, who has died at aged 88, was in Taos, New Mexico, at the time of death. “History may remember him for his extraordinary accomplishments over six decades of public service, but for those who knew him best and whose lives were forever changed as a result, we will remember his unwavering love for his wife Joyce, his family and friends, and the integrity he brought to a life dedicated to country,” the statement read.

Rumsfeld served as Secretary of Defense on two occasions, first under President Ford, and then President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2006, making him both the youngest and second-oldest person to have served in that position. During his time with Bush, he presided over the invasion of Afghanistan, and claimed that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), prompting the invasion of Iraq, eventually leading to the takeover of ISIS, massive instability in the region and the deaths of thousands of American troops. Despite Rumsfeld’s repeated declarations, no evidence for such weapons were ever found.

Rumsfeld was majorly criticized for ignoring advice regarding the pre-invasion assessment of Iraq put forward by General Eric Shiseki, who said that hundreds of thousands of allied troops would be required to stabilize the nation after the regime was removed, another potential major error in the conflict. He was eventually forced to step down from his post as Secretary of Defense in 2006.

Following the 2020 election, along with the other former Secretaries of Defense, he attacked President Trump over unsubstantiated rumors that he would use the military to investigate potential voter fraud. In 2008, Wikileaks leaked the attendee list of the globalist Bohemian Grove ceremony – Rumsfeld, among with Nancy Pelosi, George Bush Sr, and many others, were among those attending.

In  the early 200's I strongly SUPPORTED Rumsfeld, Bush, Cheney,... etc.. My extremely LEFTIST younger brother, and older sister (in San Francisco, and Oakland) had nothing but contempt for these people. Today their contempt is directed at  President Trump.. Of course, I was strongly  supportive of President Trump--  voted for him in 16'  and 20'. And expect he'll be rightfully RE-INSTATED after completion of enough Forensic-Audits of the fraud-Election to  DE-certify enough of the battleground-states that were fraudulently-flipped to Biden by the CCP, WEF, Soros, Zuckerberg, Gates, etc.. and their quisling Commu-crat allies,... in  a world-wide take-down of FREEDOM & TRUTH in America, and once-free nations around the world,... largely through the Trojan-Vaxx 'Safety-Fraud'.     During the last year, as President Trump 'promoted' the 'Spike-Shot', along with allowing Evil-Fauci to guide the narrative for America, and  the  world through criminal-gangster public-health' agencies---CDC, NIH,WHO, FDA,... etc... my support of President Trump has faltered greatly. He won the 2020 election,.. but he's lost my support,  due to his support of the covid  mRNA 'FAKE-vaccine' crime-against-humanity.  He's showing a little caution for 'Spike-inating' children,.. but still lauds these very ddangerous spike-shots as 'wonderful'.      So my support has swung to Gov. Ron DeSantis! As far as  Rumsfeld,  I now recognize that I was duped by him,..and a number of RINO-crats. Most of whom I realized much more quickly,.. were more 'Globalist' in their sympathies, than American-Constitutionalist.  With GW Bush,.. though I voted for him twice,... I was stunned when he called Islam a 'religion-of-peace',... it didn't make sense, even though I supported him  ging into Afghanistan AND Iraq, in response to '9-11'.   Now, looking-back, I see more clearly the mistakes I supported, but I have little bitterness for Rumsfeld, Bush,.. except for their ANTI-TRUMP positions recently. I was 'on-to' McCain much earlier,.. when  he refused to criticize Obama in 2008. The one I'm most bitter  toward now is Romney,.. who  continues to show his 'viper' colors,... his betrayall of America Freedom-values today.  I recognize that everyone that opposes Trump is NOT an  America-Traitor.  It's their other  views and values that reveal that.  It's clear to me that those calling January 6 an 'insurrection' are complicit with the Commu-crat, RINO-crat LEFT (are Globalist-Marxist/Socialist/Fascist/Communist),.. and have a 'worldview' which OPPOSES Truth, and Constitutional-Liberty! I liked Rumsfeld,.. but I see now that he was WRONG. How wrong he was in his worldview, I don't know? Much about life, and the world is being revealed to me everyday.  But I know we are ALL flawed,.. none are  complete,..'righteous' , except the Lord Jesus christ.  Each of us will account to Him. Trust in His 'work' counts more than anything else! THAT judgment is in His hands.

Rumsfeld's 2001-2006 stint as Secretary of Defense was second only to Robert S. McNamara's as the worst since the creation of the Department of Defense in 1947.

An elder statesman for the Deep State Cabal (aka the "Old Serpent") and many of the elderly demons are all going to start dropping like flies now rather than face the embarrassment of their war crimes and crimes against humanity.  Rumsfeld was the Devil's Boy Friday.  For your sake, Don, I hope your "god" is as merciful as Ours.
