Michele Tafoya shared a tweet this week that retired US General Spalding could not resist but comment to.
Michele Tafoya is recognized by individuals who used to watch the NFL on Sundays. Her website says:
Michele Tafoya is a former American sportscaster. From 2011 to 2022, she was a reporter for NBC Sports, primarily as a sideline reporter for NBC Sunday Night Football. Today, she hosts the Sideline Sanity Podcast and makes television appearances on talk shows discussing the state of American politics and culture.
Tafoya is not afraid to take on topics of the day. One example is her pinned tweet where she shares common sense. Tafoya’s pinned tweet is as follows:
I was often the only woman in the room. I didn’t focus on that. I focused on the job. If you feel unwelcome somewhere, change your mind. Remind yourself: you are entitled to the space around you. Don’t give anyone else power over the way you see yourself. #TuesdayTough pic.twitter.com/osAfJtOuc5

Tafoya tweeted out the current state of politics in America sharing the following:
We don’t see how you can beat an enemy you cannot name…The enemy is the ‘woke regime.’ The word “regime” is important, because it suggests an all-out, comprehensive assault on the American way of life. . . . Why “Americanists” vs. “woke revolutionaries” and not, say, “conservatives” vs. “progressives”? These latter names suggest we are in a normal policy dispute within the traditional context of American politics, in which both sides accept the legitimacy of the American regime. We are not in such a context. We are not living in the bygone world of Reagan vs. Mondale. We are in a war.” John Fonte and Thomas Klingenstein

Spalding has been retired from the Air Force since at least 2019 after serving for more than 25 years, according to biographical details on his book’s Amazon page. During that time, he earned seven medals and awards and became a leading expert on China, according to his Air Force biography.
He was a distinguished graduate of Mandarin Chinese language training, and later served as chief China strategist for the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Following that, he was assigned as the Defense Department’s representative at the U.S. embassy in Beijing.
He has written two books on China: “War Without Rules: China’s Playbook for Global Dominion” and “Stealth War: How China Took Over While America’s Elite Slept.”
