Cliff Maloney Shines Light on ‘Defend the Guard’ on Timcast IRL: “They Are Fighting to Protect Our Bravest Men and Women From the War Cartel”

by | Feb 22, 2024 | News

Cliff Maloney, CEO of Mobilize The Message and founder of The Pennsylvania Chase, recently appeared on Timcast IRL, where he took the opportunity and advocated for the “Defend the Guard” legislation, aimed at curtailing the United States’ “forever wars” through seemingly never-ending foreign military engagements.

During the discussion, Maloney underscored the bipartisan support in Washington, D.C., for continuous military involvement abroad, criticizing it as a deviation from the nation’s foundational principles of engagement in armed conflict. He highlighted “Defend the Guard” as a pivotal measure to ensure state National Guard units cannot be deployed to active combat zones without a formal declaration of war by Congress, as mandated by the U.S. Constitution.

What is “Defend the Guard”?

“Defend the Guard” emerged from the efforts of Dan McKnight, Diego Rivera, and their organization, Bring Our Troops Home, consisting of military veterans advocating for a reevaluation of the U.S.’s foreign policy strategy. The legislation reflects a growing discontent with the executive branch’s unilateral decisions to engage in foreign conflicts, sidelining the legislative oversight intended by the Constitution. This concern is particularly poignant for rural states, which disproportionately bear the human cost of these conflicts.

The initiative aims to compel a return to the “Just War Tradition,” insisting that armed conflict should be a last resort, and seeks to keep the National Guard within state borders for domestic emergencies.

Despite resistance from Pentagon officials and the military industrial complex, the movement has seen legislative successes in states like Arizona and New Hampshire, signaling a broader push for a recommitment to constitutional governance and the protection of servicemen.

Maloney’s advocacy on Timcast IRL, combined with the grassroots efforts led by McKnight and Rivera, highlights a concerted effort to challenge the status quo of U.S. foreign policy.

“Defend the Guard” represents not only a legal strategy to restrict unauthorized military deployments but also a broader call for accountability, transparency, and a reevaluation of America’s role on the global stage. As the legislation continues to gain traction across the country, it serves as a testament to the power of bipartisan support for reining in the government’s foreign policy excesses and honoring the constitutional mandates that govern military engagement​​​​.
