Happy birthday Brian.

Today would have been Brian Terry’s 42nd birthday. He should be celebrating it with his family. Instead his family is suffering from the hole his death has left in them. It would be sad if his death was due to natural causes. Yet his death was anything but natural, and his family still cannot get straight answers from the government. Brian Terry was a Border Patrol Agent in Nogales Arizona, when he was shot while conducting a mission to arrest Mexican criminals operating on American soil. Brian Terry died on December 15th 2010. What makes his death all the more tragic is the fact that the gun used to kill him was supplied to Mexican drug cartels as part of an Obama and Eric Holder approved gun walking operation named Fast and Furious. An operation both Obama and Holder deny any knowledge of, despite all the evidence to the contrary. Obama has gone as far as exerting Executive Privilege over the release of documents relating to the operation, and he has even blamed George Bush for a similar operation under his presidency. The only problem was that operation Wide Receiver, as it was known under bush, had some very distinct differences, one being that all the guns used in Wide Receiver had locator chips in them, those in Fast and Furious did not, when Bush found out that the cartels were removing the chips he stopped Wide Receiver, and the biggest difference Wide Receiver resulted in ZERO deaths attributed to the guns  used in it, Fast and Furious has resulted in the death of Border Agent Brian Terry and at last count over 300 Mexican Civilians.

I wish you a happy birthday Brian, you were a Sheep Dog until the end.

Another example of a Wounded Warrior getting mistreated

Army Staff Sergeant Chad Staples was paralyzed from the waste down while deployed to Iraq in 2007. He stayed at a Best Western in Monahans Texas on. He paid $289 for a room. The next day when he was leaving he found that the elevator was not working. He called the front desk for help and was laughed at and demeaned. When he asked for help getting down stairs he was told they couldn’t help him because of liability issues. In order for Chad to get down stairs he had to throw his bags and his wheel chair down the stairs then crawl down on his ass. Read the story here.

Yes I am pissed at the way they treated Chad, not only because he is a combat veteran, but that is no way to treat any disabled person. How are you going to give a person in a wheel chair a room on the second floor, and then not help them down when the elevator is broken? That is just plain incompetence. And the BS the Best Western corporate office pulled by putting the blame on their “independent owners and operators,” is wrong. You own the corporation, they are franchisees they answer to you. By shirking your duty to hold them responsible just shows the lack of concern for the customer.

I for one will not stay at a Best Western again. If they can’t be bothered to help a fellow Soldier, one who has given so much for this country, I can’t be bothered to give them my money.

Politicians should learn a lesson from a Soldier

I joined the Army to defend my country. I love my country and my fellow citizens so much that I have gone to combat and waged war with the enemies of my country to protect and defend it. I took the following oath:

“I, Gerard Peter Hoffman, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”

As a matter of fact I took that oath six times. As you can see my oath says nothing about money, religious beliefs, race, creed, anything like that. I don’t care about that. I care about my country. I care so much I have put my life on the line through four combat deployments, to ensure the freedom my country enjoys.

Unlike politicians I don’t care if you’re black, white, brown, green, or Mexican, I do however care that you are in this country legally. I don’t care if you’re straight, gay, bisexual, trisexual, homosexual, or what ever, as long as your personal life does not interfere with me doing my job or you doing your job, as long as you’re happy it’s all good. Isn’t that a basic tenet of the Constitution, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? As long as what makes you happy does not infringe on my rights, and is not illegal go for it. I really do not understand why people get pissed about homosexuals being allowed to marry. Yes I am a Christian, and yes I hold to the basic faith of Christianity, the ten commandments. I know there are places in the bible which I know I violate, especially:

Leviticus 19:28- Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

I have tattoos, but then again I am not a religious fanatic, I know nothing now is the same as it was in biblical times, and things change. Just look at our own history, slavery, Jim Crowe, women’s suffrage, the one thing that does not change is the ten commandments.

Yes this country’s history is filled with mistakes, and we have corrected them. But one thing that has remained constant is the drive to make this country better. And I have seen politicians, especially Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Maxine Waters, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Michael Bloomberg, and so many more using their political platform for their own profits.

Listen you all got elected to represent and protect the people of this country, not control them. Just because you have been elected to an office it does not mean you can tell me what I can drink, what I can eat, what consumer product I have to purchase, and yes insurance is a consumer product Obama, and taxing someone for not wanting to buy something is pure communism.

As a Soldier I care only about my fellow Americans. I do not want to control their life, I want them to live their own life. I want everyone to get what ever they want, if they are driven and work hard they can get rich, if they are lazy and do nothing they get poor. I work for my paycheck, I do not need to give what I earn to someone who is too lazy to get their ass out of their house and work. I have to take a drug test to work, you have to take a drug test to get government assistance. Government assistance is just that, assistance until you get a job, which you have to actively look for or you lose the assistance.

If you are a woman and all you want to do is stay home and have kids, you damn well better be able to take care of them. I do not advocate government directed abortion or mandatory sterilization, but if you have a child and can not take care of that child, the government should take that child and place that child in a situation where that child can be cared for. The woman can live in poverty all she wants, but her children will not be forced to live that life. And that goes for men too, if you have kids and you can’t support them, not a problem, you will go to jail. Do not have kids unless you intend to take care of them.

Speaking of taking care of people, illegal aliens should be prosecuted. If you want to come to this country do it legally. I have brothers in arms who wanted so bad to be American citizens they joined the Military to gain citizenship. I have also lost a few brothers who never got to get their citizenship, they gave up their lives for freedoms they never had, for freedoms you and now thanks to Obama illegal aliens enjoy. And they did this because they believed in our country, not like these illegal aliens who only believe in the free healthcare, free housing, free education, and tax-free pay. What happened to ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country? Oh yeah Democrats happened.

The founding fathers didn’t have political parties, they had common sense. They never took a paycheck for elected office, it was a privilege not a career. They did what was good for the country.

They never worried about what any other country thought, they didn’t sell the rights to American land to foreign companies. The founding fathers would never have British Petroleum drilling for oil in our territorial waters, they would never allow a chance to put thousands of Americans to work to pass by nixing a project like the Keystone Pipeline. We would have drilling for our own oil the minute reserves were found, and we would not be paying Islamic militant extremist governments, or communist governments for their oil and gas, we would be making our own.

Speaking of Islamic extremists, they would have no say in this country, this is not a terrorist state. Sharia law would not even be thought of here. CAIR, the council on American Islamic Relations would not exist. The only reason it is around is to bring Islamic extremism to the US and that is not going to happen. Sharia law degrades women, it advocates the abuse and murder of women, which I can in no way even pretend to think is right. Along with CAIR, the KKK, the New Black Panther Party, the Aryan Brotherhood, the Westboro Baptist Church and any other group that professes hate for a different group would be outlawed, and their members would be arrested. Everyone has prejudices, there is no way around that, but to act on them is not acceptable. There is no room in this country for hate.

We should be a country of accomplishments not entitlements. I do not claim a political party, I claim common sense.

My views on the consequences of the 2012 election

I am seeing a very dangerous future ahead for our country. With the damage that has been done to our country and our constitution by the current president and his cronies I see very bad things if he gets reelected. Obama has already bowed and shown subservience to every world leader he has ever met, he has backed and continues to back militant Islamic extremists to overthrow governments in the Middle East, he has turned his back on Israel, our only true ally in the region. He has also drafted a national healthcare law that has turned out to be the biggest tax increase in American history, that allows for hiring 16,000 new IRS agents but not one new doctor.

Obama has given blanket amnesty to all illegal aliens, as long as they are not criminals, except for the illegal alien arrested in NJ last week. On orders from a senior field director the ICE agent who arrested the illegal alien was told to release the illegal alien, when the ICE agent refused he was threatened with suspension, and told if he did it again he would be fired and lose all benefits and pension, he was an 18 year veteran. The reason given to release the illegal alien, “he wasn’t a Presidential priority.”  So if protecting our country from illegal aliens isn’t a Presidential priority what is?

Obama has filed suit against an Ohio law which gives US service members 3 extra days to vote.  Obama claims this is unconstitutional, mainly because he knows the majority of these men and women will not vote for him. His priorities are also ensuring that no voter will need to show ID to vote, because voting is a right and you do not need ID to exercise a right. Except to purchase guns, because even thttps://mechinfantrygod.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php?post_type=posthough the 2nd amendment grants us the right to bear arms it’s not really a right and he’s doing everything he can to fix that mistake the founding fathers somehow let slip through when they wrote the constitution.

Obama and the democrats want to take away our right to bear arms, while at the same time they are letting guns walk across the border into the hands of violent Mexican drug cartels. Drug cartels that have already used those weapons to kill Border Agent Brian Terry, and at least 300 Mexican civilians. Drug cartels that have taken up residency in our national park lands in border states such as Arizona. Places where instead of sending in Law Enforcement agencies, or the National Guard, Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano’s brilliant idea was to have signs posted warning Americans to stay out because of the danger. Way to protect us. There are towns near El Paso Texas where Law Enforcement officials suggest ranchers do not go out on their own land with out arming themselves because of the threat of drug cartels and human smugglers. And the Obama administration wants to take our guns away.

The 2nd amendment as written: A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, was not written to protect the citizens from average criminals, it was written to protect the citizens from the tyranny of a government out of control. Right now we have the beginning of a government out of control. The government under Obama has put more people on food stamps, and unemployment, than at any other time in our history. We have become a state of entitlement, we are no longer the self-reliant country we were.

Our country was founded on religious freedoms, freedom for all religions. In the past few years I have seen a steady decline not in religious freedom, but in the freedom to practice Christianity. It seems everywhere you look some one is attacking a cross, citing separation of church and state. Yet I have not heard one complaint about Judaism, or Hinduism, or Taoism, or Islam. On the other hand all I hear is that Islam is being oppressed, and hated on.  They wanted to put a mosque up 2 blocks from the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks. The public spoke out against it, in order to not seem racist the court system in New York allowed the mosque. Apparently they never read history and fail to realize that Muslims build mosques on all ground they conquer. Taken right out of the Koran, chapter 18 verse 21- Their Lord knows best about them. Those who prevailed in their affair said: We shall certainly build a place of worship over them. Those who prevail in the affair, sounds like those who won, build a place of worship over them, build a mosque.

There are 33 bills in 20 states reiterating that the only law to be followed in the US is US law. Well this upsets CAIR- Council on American Islamic Relations, they think they have the right to ignore US law and follow Sharia law, Islamic law according to the Koran. If you want to follow a Sharia law I got a suggestion move to Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran or any other, Islamic government stop trying to destroy the US.

Why did I bring up Sharia law and Islamic propensity for building mosques on conquered ground you ask? Simple because Obama has been backing the Muslim Brotherhood in its bid to take control of the Middle East. The Muslim Brotherhood is a militant Islamic organization intent on bringing Islam to the world either by peaceful or violent means. And Obama is backing this group, to the extent that the Obama administration allowed Hani Nour Eldin to obtain a visa and visit the White House. The problem is that Eldin belongs to Gamat al Islamia, a known terrorist group. And Obama allowed him into the White House.

The problem here is he did all this during his first term, when he had to worry about getting reelected. Imagine what he’ll do when he doesn’t have to worry about reelection. He’s made illegal cabinet appointments without approval of congress, he’s implemented laws, or rather decided which laws to ignore, and is forcing socialist programs on us. He is destroying this country and if he gets reelected he will finish the job.

 

I have a lot of friends in the Military and Law Enforcement, and talking to them I’m getting worried about what our country’s future is. Unless we take back our country through our democratic elections, and get this socialist/Marxist/Communist mentality out of our government we are headed off a cliff. Talking with some people ,there is a tension in our country right now, a tension so tight it will snap whether we act or not. I can not advocate the overthrow of the government, but I did take an oath the protect and defend the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic. I can not sit by and watch my country destroyed, and the vast majority, and by majority I mean all of my friends share this belief. I am hearing a lot of whispers, and some shouts about the time being right for another revolution. I can see where they are coming from, this government right now is the one our founding fathers were scared of when they wrote the Constitution, and especially when they wrote the 2nd amendment. The 2nd amendment was written to protect us from the tyranny that is in the process of happening. I am praying that Obama loses this election, because if he doesn’t I am scared a second American revolution might happen. With all of the crime and mass shooting happening, the government is trying to un-arm the law-abiding citizens, not because they want to stop the crime, but  because they want to protect themselves when they finish destroying the constitution.

Homeland Security has stocked up on 450 million rounds of ammunition, 2000+ Military grade armored vehicles, and no is stocking up on riot gear for the upcoming elections, what do they know, or think they know? Who are they protecting? I’m not one to give into conspiracy theories, I look at things and research, and think about it. The more I look into, research and think about this, the more worried I become, because instead of upholding the law and keeping illegal immigrants out, and deporting those that are arrested in the country, Homeland is more scared of the American citizens, why is that? I can see nothing good coming from this if Obama gets reelected. I am not advocating a new revolution, I am however keeping all my body armor the government issued me, just in case. Cause you never know, the zombies could be coming too.

We need to stop this. November 06, 2012, the day we take back our country.

Seperation of Church and State has gone too far

I understand that we should not have a theocratic government. I know we do not need to have a total 10 commandment, hell fire and brimstone judgement system. But to go so far as to take every last bit of religious symbolism out of society is wrong. I like walking past Buildings and seeing memorials, especially Fire Departments and Police Departments, crosses, and even stars of David, showing remembrance of the fallen.

But there are Atheists who are trying to do away with these symbols of remembrance because it offends them.. They say that having a cross on public land is embracing Catholicism. They are threatening lawsuits all over the country to take down all crosses. Well the lack of crosses offends me, so should I sue to keep them there? But then where does it end?

The latest in the atheist’s attacks on the cross comes in the Freedom From Religion Foundations demand that the Woonsocket Rhode Island Fire Hall remove a memorial to World War I and II be removed. Read the article here. Are they so against religion that they will take away our ability to remember those who have fought for us? We need to stop this now.

This upsets me to no end

Nova Sosa claims to be a Soldier in the Army reserves in an Military Police unit in New York. He also claims he’s an up and coming musician who is not in in the music game to make money, he says he gives his music away for free. I have no way of knowing how much of this is true. I have seen his Facebook page, you can see it here:https://www.facebook.com/NovaSosa  if you want to.

The problem I have with this person who I have come to find out whose real name is Brandon Davis is the following pictures:

I know that in the civilian world the Stolen Valor Act has been shot down in the courts, but in the Military it is still against the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the UCMJ, to wear unearned medals, awards, decorations or rank. As you can see he has jackets depicting awards, medals, decorations, patches, and ranks from all Military services, which is illegal, and then there is the picture of him wearing the jacket with the Marine corps NCO stripes on it with Marine Corps medals and awards. He says he is wearing the awards as an honor to his friends in the Military. He claims he wears the Purple Heart to honor his friends wounded in combat, I take personal offense to this. I have lost brothers in combat, and I would never disrespect their memory by wearing an award they sacrificed their lives for, as this classless individual calls it “fashion.”

What makes this Stolen Valor so much more vile is the fact this person is a Soldier, and he’s spitting on every Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, and Coast Guardsman that has ever come before him and has earned the medals this person is wearing as fashion to sell records. I urge each and every one of you guys to go and check out his Facebook page and then tell him exactly how much he is disrespecting the memory and honor of the true warriors who have gone before him.

Arresting a criminal gets an ICE agent suspended

 

An 18 year veteran of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency has been issued a notice of suspension for arresting an illegal alien. This agent who was not named was watching a vehicle belonging to a known criminal alien target, he and his partner noticed a man getting into the vehicle and they apprehended the subject. It turns out the subject was not who they were looking for, but he was another illegal alien who had 10 previous violations including driving with out a license. The agent decided to charge the illegal alien and let the judge decide what to do, in other words the agent did his job.

Instead of the illegal alien going to a judge, the acting field director ordered the agent to release the subject, then went on to tell the illegal alien he was going to be released because he – “WAS NOT A PRESIDENTIAL PRIORITY!” Wait, what? Why is the president even being brought into this case, the illegal alien is breaking the law, a law which the president swore to uphold and defend, oh wait I forgot Obama doesn’t care about the law all he cares about is reelection and deporting this guy would lose him a vote.

So the acting field director ordered the ICE agent to release the illegal alien and the agent said no. On July 19th the Agent was issued a notice of proposed suspension for “failing to  follow supervisory instructions, when you arrested a non-targeted alien who did not appear to meet any of the ICE priorities.” A memorandum from Assistant Field Office Director David O’Neill, written the morning of the incident, reveals that the officers were told to release the subject even though he was in the country illegally. So if it’s the ICE Agents job to arrest illegal aliens, but they get in trouble for doing their job why are they even still a government agency? Seriously if the Obama administration is not going to allow them to enforce the law why even keep them around? No I do not want ICE shut down, just the opposite I want the Obama administration to let them do their job and arrest and deport illegal aliens, I was just making a point.

This ICE agent has been on the job for 18 years, doing his job well, and now is in trouble for doing just that. As a result of disobeying the order to release a known criminal, the officer faces a three-day suspension and could ultimately lose his job and pension if he arrests another illegal not on the Obama administration’s priority list. In essence if he does his job he will be fired and lose everything, however, if he just sits back and steals a paycheck he’ll not only keep his job, but in all likely hood get promoted, keep his pension and his benefits, and not get in trouble. Does this seem wrong to anyone else?

Our country has been broken, and it has been done by the very man elected to protect our country. Obama has done what no other person could, he has successfully found a way to destroy America, and every one who voted for him is letting it happen, and if you vote for him again you vote for the death of America. Stand up and tell him no more, November 6, 2012 the day we take back our country.
