Lying about Military Service

Military Service

There is nothing more despicable than lying about military service. The AP reported that Trump backed Republican J.R. Majewski lied about his military service. Majewski presents himself as an Air Force combat veteran who deployed to Afghanistan after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. However, military documents obtained by The Associated Press prove he never deployed to Afghanistan. He loaded planes in safe Qatar.

Don Christensen, a retired colonel and former chief prosecutor for the Air Force, said of Majewski:

“It bothers me when people trade on their military service to get elected to office when what they are doing is misleading the people they want to vote for them. Veterans have done so much for this country and when you claim to have done what your brothers and sisters in arms actually did to build up your reputation, it is a disservice.”

Majewski lacks the medals that are awarded to those who served in Afghanistan. He never saw combat or hostile fire despite his claims of heroism. Disgraceful.

Majewski exited at a rank that was only one notch above where he started four years earlier. Strange. His enlistment code indicated that he could not sign up with the Air Force again. I wonder why….

QAnon Conspiracy Nut

His life story is full of  by exaggerations, conspiracy theories, talk of violent action against the U.S. government and financial schemes. This pro-Trump hip-hop performer is a promoter of the QAnon conspiracy theory. He also participated in the insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021. He is a perfect representation of a politician who reject facts to emulate Trump. Majewski even painted a massive Trump mural on his lawn.

Majewski is a follower of the QAnon conspiracy theory. He repeatedly posted QAnon references and memes to social media, wore a QAnon shirt during a TV interview and has described Zak Paine, a QAnon influencer and online personality who goes by the nom de guerre Redpill78, as a “good friend.”

During a February 2021 appearance on a YouTube stream, Majewski stated, “I believe in everything that’s been put out from Q,” while characterizing the false posts as “military-level intelligence, in my opinion.” He also posted, to the right-wing social media platform Parler, a photo of the “Trump 2020” mural he painted on his lawn that was modified to change the zeros into “Q’s,” as first reported by CNN.

Bankrupt Insurrectionist

He admits to his participation in the Capitol riot. Majewski raised about $25,000 to help dozens of people attend Trump’s January 6 rally.  He promoted his presence on social media with other conspiracy nuts. Majewski said on the livestream:

“It was a struggle, because I really wanted to go in.”

In 2009, he went bankrupt. Just like Trump!  A good quality in a politician apparently. In the bankruptcy, Majewski and his wife gave up their home, two cars and a Jet Ski to settle the case.

Tom Davis is a former congressman who once led the House Republican campaign arm:

 “These elections have become less about the person. I wouldn’t say candidates don’t matter, but they don’t matter like they used to.”

How sad for Ohio and America.
