The Legacy of That Fateful Day

9-11-memorial-never-forget-2I was out running errands today, going to the VA hospital, and the grocery store, and I was filled with pride and wonder. I looked around and people were going about there normal lives, shopping, going to and from work, going to the post office, going to the doctor, talking to friends and families, just living their lives. I thought about what happened 13 years ago, the cowardly act carried out by terrorists who hated us because of our freedoms, and sought to destroy us, and cause fear that would cripple us, and seeing this today, everyone going about their normal business, I was filled with pride that the terrorists failed.
I was filled with pride at seeing how after these animals tried to knock us to our knees, we got brushed off the dirt and collectively said, “Is that all you got?” And we came together as a country to help our families, friends and neighbors, and to help people we didn’t even know, but they were our neighbors, they may have lived across town, or across the country, but they were United States citizens, and they were in trouble, and everyone came together to help. In what the terrorists thought would be our downfall, turned out this was our shining moment.
Today as I was watching everyone go about their business, and running errands, I was full of pride that we took what happened, shook it off, took care of our fellow Americans, then we showed the terrorists they could not knock down the Spirit that was the American people. And now today 13 years later, we remember, we will never forget, never forget the hurt and pain that tragedy has wrought, we will never forget the rage we felt at the audacity of those terrorists to attack us on our home soil, we will never forget how we came together as a community and a country to show them we will not live in fear.

Never Forget 9-11

As the anniversary of the deadliest attack on American soil comes around we need to remember the sacrifices of those affected by this cowardly act. We need to remember those who died in the attack, and those left to carry on without them, Mothers, Fathers, Sons, Daughters, Grandparents, and Friends. There were some heroes on this day also, and we need to celebrate their lives and their final heroic feat, and those were the passengers on Flight 93 who rather than sit back and wait for the terrorists to crash the plane, attacked those terrorists and forced a crash landing in an open field in Pennsylvania, saving countless of innocent lives where ever the terrorists were set on crashing. We also need to remember those who headed the call of a country under attack and left their loved ones here at home to hunt down and bring justice to those who perpetrated this evil on us.

September 11, 2001 was the worst, most deadly attack to ever happen on American soil, it was carried out by cowardly terrorists, who hate us for being the greatest nation on the planet. These cowards attacked innocent civilians, with the thought we would accept it and not strike back, they were wrong, they tested our resolve, and they failed. Our President George W. Bush found out who they were and then he attacked them, he brought the wrath of the world finest Military down on them. Our Warriors did not hesitate when duty called, they said goodbye to everyone, and everything they loved, boarded a plane and went after the terrorists responsible for this, and after 13 years they still fight, they still hunt these animals down. Our Military men and women have borne the brunt of this war with the honor and dignity we come to expect of them, they truly are the worlds greatest army, I count myself blessed to have been among them, to have been able to go to war for my country and defend her, and all my fellow Americans, especially my family.

As this most solemn of occasions approaches, please take a moment to remember those who went off to war and never came back, those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us and our country.

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

John 15:13 KJV

This bible passage means so much to me, I know the pain of losing friends to war, and I know none of them would have changed a thing, even if they had known what would happen. I am lucky to have known these men, and I think about their families almost everyday, the pain they have gone through having lost a loved one makes my pain pale in comparison. But I would not trade away this pain for anything.

I ask only this, please take a moment this week, and especially on Thursday September 11, to remember all those and their families who have sacrificed in the Twin Towers in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington DC, those who chose rather than being a pawn to the terrorists chose to go down in a blaze of glory in that field in Shanksville Pennsylvania, and those who willingly sacrificed in the war to destroy our enemies and keep us all safe.

NEVER FORGET!

Dark Times Are Here

We have entered a dark time, we have illegal aliens invading our country with the blessing of the president, the president also willfully brought the Ebola virus here in the form of 2 sick volunteers from Africa, the president again put us in danger by not cancelling or relocating to a place outside the US the African summit held earlier this week. It seems the person who should be doing the most to protect the country is doing the exact opposite.

Our southern border is wide open, and the Border Patrol is being hog tied by the government. The Border patrol is not allowed to do their job and enforce our borders, and the result is 50,000 illegal aliens, many of them carrying diseases, among them criminals including gang members from the notoriously dangerous MS-13 gang, and many middle eastern, we must believe that there are terrorist and Jihadists among them. Ranchers along the southern border especially in Texas have been finding Islamic items to include prayer rugs and beads, and translation dictionaries in Urdu,which is spoken in Pakistan, and Dari, which is spoken in Afghanistan. This is not immigration it is an invasion, designed by the president to force his failed immigration policy, and to bring in tens of thousands of new democrat voters. These illegal aliens are avoiding the medical screening required to legally enter the country and they are carrying disease, such as scabies, chicken pox, small pox, and tuberculosis. This is a nation security matter and the democrats are crying and complaining that the republicans will not allow them to just grant citizenship to the illegals. This is not about immigration, it is about the democrats staying in power, nothing else.

There was an outbreak of Ebola in 3 African nations, thousands sick, and between 50 and 90% will die, even with medical attention. Two American volunteers to Liberia contracted the deadly virus, and instead of quarantining them there and sending a medical team from the CDC to them, the president decided to bring them here. Ebola virus that is able to be transmitted to humans has never been here, yes there were some macaques in Reston Virginia that had contracted a strain of Ebola, but that strain was not transmissible to humans. Now we have two confirmed cases and last I checked two possible cases, one in New York City and the other in Ohio. There is no cure and there is no vaccine, why would the leader of a country do that to his citizens?

Earlier this week the leaders of 50 African nations descended on Washington DC for an African summit, why? Why did the president allow them to come here? Why not postpone the summit or relocate it? With Africa in the grips of the worst Ebola outbreak in history, the president allowed the leaders into our country, why would he take such a risk?

These are not the actions of someone trying to protect his country, on the contrary these are the acts of someone willfully trying to destroy his country. These are dark times in our country, we are losing our freedoms and being attacked from with in.

 

The Threat Is Real

You may have heard about the two Americans who contracted the Ebola virus in Liberia last week. You may have also heard that the president has authorized a medical evacuation for both of them to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta to be treated. The first of those, Dr Kent Brantly, arrived in Atlanta today, August 2nd 2014. The other one, Nancy Writebol, will arrive in the next few days. This is the first time Ebola has been in the states.

So answer me this why then on April 8th 2014, 5 months ago, did congress get briefed, after the fact by the way, that National Guard units in all 50 states have been given biological identification kits, which are used to detect the Ebola virus.

Why were these kits fielded in National Guard units in the states and not in active Army units overseas that might actually come in contact with the virus. If the DoD was as worried about Ebola coming into the US they would have given these units to the TSA at the airports, where it might actually do some good instead of with National Guard units who aren’t involved with screening inbound travelers to the US? Who are the National Guard going to use these kits on, and why?

Ladies and gentlemen the threat is here, and the threat is real.

 

Another Slap In The Face To US Veterans

As if shutting the World War II Veterans out of their monuments wasn’t enough Obama has out done himself this time. He named a German General as head of American forces in Europe, and not just any German General, he appointed Gen. Markus Laubenthal, who used to command the 12th Panzer Brigade. You don’t know who the 12th Panzer Brigade is? That’s not surprising, because what is now the 12th Panzer Brigade was originally called the 12th SS Panzer Division Hitlerjugend (Hitler Youth). It was a Wafen SS Armored Division.

That’s right folks he just named the commander of a unit that traces its history to Hitler’s SS. Not only was this unit part of Hitler’s dreaded SS, it also fought against American units at Normandy on D-Day, and at the Battle of the Bulge. So in one fell swoop not only did he just slap the face of every American General Officer hoping to get that post to advance their career, he again slapped every WWII Veteran in the face.

This is not the action of a leader folks, this is the act of a traitor. He just gave a foreign officer access to everything we have, all our defense secrets, tactics, command structures, and control of all of our forces in Europe.  Not only is he weakening our military by cutting the defense budget, but now he is giving control of American military to a foreigner.

“‘Tis our true policy to steer clear of permanent Alliances, with any portion of the foreign world.” George Washington, Farewell Address, September 19, 1796

Well Obama just formed a permanent alliance with a foreign government. This is could be the beginning of the end of our nation, this could be the first major step towards the New World Order, unless we stop it.

The Design Of Death

When you find something you have no control over, can’t stop, and can’t get rid of once you catch it, you generally stay away from it. When you find this and it is nowhere near where you live, you generally don’t bring it into your house. Unless you want to destroy your house.

In April there was an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in the African country of Guinea. Ebola Virus Disease, or Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever, has no known cure, and a mortality rate of between 50% and 90%. The virus quickly spread from Guinea to Liberia and Sierra Leone, and the World Health Organization is saying the virus is spreading faster than their attempts to stop it.

Aid workers and volunteers have been evacuated before they can get infected, the evacuation came too late for an American Doctor, Dr. Kent Brantly and an American volunteer, Nancy Writebol, who both contracted the disease. Instead of sending a medical team to Africa to treat the infected patients, the government is flying them to be treated here in the US. An experimental serum was delivered to Liberia to treat Nancy, Dr. Brantly declined to take the medicine instead insisted on giving it to her. This is only an experimental drug, and they only have one dose, quite interesting that they could only make one dose isn’t it?

Next week the US is hosting an US/African leader summit in Washington DC, and there will be leaders with large entourages from, Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, the countries currently being devastated by the Ebola Virus. President Obama said he will not cancel or relocate the summit, because the leaders will be screened prior to the summit. The problem with that is the Ebola Virus can infect a host for up to 21 days without symptoms. So even if the delegates are screened there is a possibility they can still be carrying the virus.

Why would a country’s leader, who is tasked with the care of the citizens, invite such a danger into his country? Why would anyone take that risk? Especially when we have had in the recent past just found in a federal lab, over 300 vials of  bacteria and viruses, such as dengue fever, small pox, influenza and Rickettsia, and just last month California lost control of an illegal alien with drug resistant Tuberculosis. This country’s track record as of late with dealing with diseases and carriers of diseases is abysmal to say the least.

There is no reason to introduce a risk such as this into an area that was never in any danger of facing this disease naturally. If this disease got out into the general public it could spread like wild-fire, why even chance that? The government has already shown its disdain for the citizens of this country, and they have already placed the citizens in danger by ignoring the very laws it swore an oath to uphold. Is it so far of a jump to think they might be bringing it here for a more sinister reason? Could this be the death of our nation? Could this all be by design?  The design of death?

I Stand With Israel

There is happening right now a fight, a fight for the very survival of an entire society. Right now Israel is not only fighting to retain its country, it is fighting to save the entire Jewish people.The Palestinians and Hamas is not fighting for land, they are not fighting for resources, their sole purpose in life is the same as Hitler’s was during World War II, the destruction of the Jewish people.

The Jewish people have been the most persecuted people in history, and they should not be expected to sit there and be harassed, bullied, and watch their children and women killed by Palestinian and Hamas terrorist attacks. Every person on the earth has the right to self-defense, and the Jewish people have done everything they can to try and solve this peacefully. They have offered up cease fires and peace offerings, which Palestine and Hamas has repeatedly out right refused or violated. Well enough is enough, the Israelis can only take so much before they defend themselves.

I stand behind Israel, I stand behind their right to self-defense, I stand behind their right to protect their country, I stand behind their right to protect their children, I stand behind their right to protect their existence. I STAND BEHIND ISRAEL.

The Fall Of The Last Great Nation

First thing I want to say about the current conditions of the world is that Romney was right, he said this would happen if Obama continued to press his flawed policies on us. This current crisis in Ukraine shows just how flawed Obama was in dismissing Russia as potential global threat. Those who voted for Obama a second time made this happen, all the innocent people who have been harmed by the acts of Russia and the terrorist states in the middle east is on their heads. They voted for free stuff over freedom and enabled this failure of an administration to continue.

The reality of what is happening is The United States is on the brink of failure. We are the path to failure purely due to the incompetent individual in the White House, and his cronies. No leader that truly wants the best for their country would do half of what Obama now does, or allows to be done under his authority. The current administration is willfully trying to destroy the US, as evidenced by the continuing downsizing of our military, even in the face of a stronger China and Russia, the allowing of all these illegal aliens to invade our country, the failure to protect Ambassador Stevens, and the all out funding and arming of the Muslim Brotherhood, which even Islamic states have labeled a terrorist organization

Every despotic leader is now doing what they wanted to do all along, but couldn’t because we had the will and the might to stop them, now we don’t and our military is getting weaker. It is being gutted from the inside by our very own Commander In Chief, and everyone knows it. Through our presidents flawed foreign policy it is now fair game on Israel, our only true ally in the world, who Obama pretty much told to kick rocks, and the Russians, starting with Ukraine, are trying to get back every country they lost when the soviet union fell. The Russians have sanctioned the slaughter of innocent civilians when the separatists they armed shot down a civilian plane carrying 23 American citizens. Which instead of forcing accountability on the Russians, our president is fundraising and going on a planned vacation.

This would be tragic enough if it was the first time our president has done this, but sadly it is not. September 11. 2012, Libya, Ambassador Christopher Stevens calls for help as Islamic militants swarm the Embassy Annex in Benghazi. The president refuses to send help, instead he goes to bed and the next day he flies to Las Vegas to attend a star-studded fundraising gala, all while Ambassador Stevens, analyst Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were fighting for their lives, a fight which they all lost. And again this past June, when Neftali, Frenkel, an American citizen,  was kidnapped in Israel by Hamas. On June 26, he was found murdered, and what does Obama do? He tells Israel to proceed with caution, and does nothing to help bring the murderers to justice.

Obama has also undone everything our country has stood for in one fell swoop when he negotiated with, no it wasn’t negotiation, he gave the Taliban everything they wanted.He released five top Taliban commanders from Guantanamo Bay detention center for one American Soldier. Who by all accounts is at the very least a deserter, and at the worst a traitor who committed treason and is responsible for the death of at least six American Soldiers. At the very least this has emboldened our enemies to kidnap American citizens, knowing that the longer they hold them the more Obama will give them in exchange for their prisoner. One can only wonder if this was what led to the kidnapping of Neftali by Hamas. I guess we will never know.

What we do know is that it is apparent that our current president and his cronies are the ones facilitating the demise of our country, and if we don’t do something soon we will for ever lose the last great nation the world has known and become another 3rd world hell hole. Without the US being willing or able to aid other nations in their own defense, the world will fall into a Dystopian nightmare it will be almost impossible to wake up from.

 

 

The Loss Of Our National Pride

I just spent an hour at the DMV and was not helped because I didn’t have a hard copy of my insurance card, yet the 20 illegal aliens who didn’t even have a god dammed social security card were not only helped but when they didn’t have the paperwork required they were told it’s ok you don’t really need that anyway. We have fallen so far as a country that people bend over backwards to help these criminals that don’t even belong here, and tell those of us who actually live here and are proud to be here, not just for a fucking welfare check and all the free shit the government hands out, that they can’t help us. WTF is wrong with this country?

Two days from now we celebrate our independence day, on July 4th 1776 we declared our independence from a tyrannical government, now we are allowing that same government to control our lives, why, because they give free shit to worthless POS’ that are too lazy to get off their couch and work. And instead of celebrating our independence, most people are using this day as an excuse to get out of work or get drunk and shoot off fireworks, they forget about those overseas still fighting to defend us and our freedom the Founding Fathers declared and fought for 238 years ago. Today people treat this day as an annoyance, why is this place open, why can’t I get mail on this day, why does this day have to interfere with my plans, why are the beaches so crowded?

When did the pride in our nation and it’s heritage degrade so much? When did people go from having pride in our great nation to being whiny little welfare leeches? Today we have the government our Founding Fathers fought against to gain our independence. Mather Byles said “Which is better – to be ruled by one tyrant three thousand miles away or by three thousand tyrants one mile away?” Well the decline in our national pride and the uprising of the parasite class has done just that, we got rid of a monarch only to allow those who only want to take from us to put in place a government that in reality is much, much worse.

The only way to regain our once great nation is to once again get away from,”what can you give me?” and go back to what can I do for the greater good of my country. With out that we will be lost for ever and the sacrifices of our Founding Fathers and all those who have fought for our country since then, and of those who continue to fight for our freedoms today.

Sacrifices Lost

Nine years ago I left for my first combat tour to Iraq. My brigade was stationed in Baghdad, and my team was sent to Yusafiya, part of the Triangle of Death. I was there during one of the most brutal times in the war, we were involved in numerous fire fights and IED blasts, and were hit by mortar fire twice a week if not more, it was dangerous to say the least, and we wouldn’t have had it any other way. We were answering our countries call to war, we were defending our country, and we would all do it again, most of those great Soldiers I served with that first tour went on to deploy again in Iraq, and again into Afghanistan, and most of them volunteered repeatedly to fight for our country and free those who could not fight for themselves. During my first tour in Iraq 21 of the finest men to walk the earth made the ultimate sacrifice-

Matthew Gibbs

Charles Warren

Jerry Ganey

Paul Saylor

Joshua Dingler

Thomas Strickland

Michael Stokely

Dennis Merck

Marcus Futrell

Philip Travis

Carl Ray Fuller

John Thomas

James Kinlow

Jacques Brunson

Christopher Taylor

Ronnie Shelley Sr.

Jonathan Haggin

David Jones Sr.

Victor Anderson

Chad Mercer

Charles Gillican III

These men went into harms way and never came home. Dennis Merck died in my arms on the way to the hospital. These and 4465 other men and women gave their lives in defense of this country and helping free the Iraqi people.

And the current president of the United States pissed away their sacrifices when he decided to pull out of Iraq before we destroyed the enemy to the point they couldn’t reform, before we ensured the Iraqi government was able to defend itself. I knew, and those I served with knew that it was a mistake and the Iraqi government was not able or willing to defend itself or the people of Iraq. Now we know why it was a mistake, we see Al-Queada was in hiding waiting to come out and undo everything we sacrificed for. Fallujah Iraq was the first to fall. Fallujah was the scene of two major battles mostly involving the Marines, during the first battle of Fallujah in April and May of 2004 48 Marines, 2 Soldiers and a Navy Corpsman were killed, during the second battle of Fallujah in November and December of 2004 another 95 American service members were killed. Mosul Iraq was the second city to fall into insurgent hands, with Tikrit following soon after. Now the insurgents are marching on Baghdad, and the US is now pulling out of Al Asad air base, and getting ready to evacuate all personnel from the embassy in Baghdad. Every one I talked to said that if we were pulled out of Iraq too early we would be back with in 5 years, and lo and behold the Iraqi government that is too weak to hold off the insurgents is now asking for our help again, after demanding we get out they realize they made a mistake, after the insurgents took over Fallujah and took control of the M1-A1 main battle tanks we left for the Iraqis, they took over Mosul and gained control over all the UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters we sent to the Iraqis, along with well over one hundred armored Humvees,

I now know how the Vietnam Vets felt when Saigon fell, their sacrifices were stomped all over then and ours are being stomped all over now, and the sad thing is the exact same thing is happening in Afghanistan, only this time instead of just pulling us out, our president is giving AL-queda back their senior leadership and helping them destroy every thing our Fallen Warriors and our Wounded Warriors sacrificed so much for.
