ATTENTION all Korean and Vietnam War Veterans!

AMERICA‘S  GOT  TROUBLE

You fought bravely and sacrificed much to stop the expansion of Communism in South East Asia. How can it be that we find ourselves fighting it once more and this time, In Our Own Country!

How is it that we missed all the warning signs and ignored those who tried to warn us of what was happening in Our America?

 

Today we find ourselves in disbelief as Our Own President try’s to destroy our Country from within.

Make no mistake about it, much of this Senate and some in our Congress along with  Our President are confirmed Socialist/Marxists/COMMUNISTS bent on taking away our personal freedoms and liberties and turning this great nation into nothing more than a THIRD WORLD satellite of Communist China and Russia or both.  The hand writing is on the Wall for all who are willing to see and time is of the essence.

In this War my Fellow Veterans, we will Win in the Voting Booths of America and not with Violence and Blood.

While we are still Free to Vote, we need to come out in Great Numbers and kick to the curb these Communist Infiltrators that have Infected Our Country with the Cancer of Corruption and Progressive Socialism.

America became and still is the Greatest Nation the World has ever known because of Our Common Christian/Judea values and beliefs. For your Children and Grandchildren I plead with you to please take up the fight and get involved…NOW.  America needs you to once again stand up and help fight this Communistic take over of all that we treasure and hold dear.

I for one will not let the sacrifices of all those brave men and women who fought and served in Korea and Vietnam be for nothing as Communism takes root in the very Country they fought and died to protect. In their memory and for the sake of our children and grand children I ask you to rise up one more time and let us together send this Socialist President to Leavenworth where he belongs.

The 2014 Mid Term elections are coming in November and we need you to Saddle Up……….. N O W !

Death Panels at the Veterans Affairs Health Care system?

department-of-veterans-affairs-lincoln-plaque

CNN delivers a shocking report that “at least 40 U.S. veterans died waiting for appointments at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system, many of whom were placed on a secret waiting list.”

After all the ridicule it would seem Sarah Palin was right after all…

993081_10201257418907996_724921225_n

“Death panel” is a political term that originated during the 2009 debate about federal health care legislation to cover the uninsured in the United States used to describe the system’s Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). The term was coined in August 2009 by Sarah Palin, the former Governor of Alaska, when she charged that the then-proposed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act would create a “death panel” of bureaucrats who would decide whether Americans—such as her elderly parents or children with Down syndrome—were “worthy of medical care”. Palin’s claim has been referred to as the “death panel myth”,.[1][2] Palin specified that she was referring to Section 1233 of bill HR 3200 which would have paid physicians for providing voluntary counseling to Medicare patients about living wills, advance directives, and end-of-life care options.

Palin’s claim was criticized in editorials by mainstream news media, fact-checkers, academics, physicians, Democrats, and some Republicans. Prominent Republicans such as Newt Gingrich and conservative talk radio hosts Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Michelle Malkin backed Palin’s statement. One poll showed that after it spread, about 85% of Americans were familiar with the charge and of those who were familiar with it, about 30% thought it was true.[1] Due to public concern, the provision to pay physicians for providing voluntary counseling was removed from the Senate bill and was not included in the law that was enacted, the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. In a 2011 statement, the American Society of Clinical Oncology bemoaned the politicization of the issue and said that the proposal should be revisited.

For 2009, “death panel” was named as PolitiFact’s “Lie of the Year”, one of FactCheck’s “whoppers”, and the most outrageous term by the American Dialect Society.

A special Commentary by AFVet on this latest Scandal to rock the Obama Administration

 So now we have the

VA hospital scandal

~ by AFVet ~

4bc29294fc7acb1fffe4fdc06ed1a5e5

Veterans waiting for months for an APPOINTMENT, let alone care for their ailments.

In 2009, Obama knew about this problem and here it is 2014 and veterans are dying waiting for treatment.

These people were willing to give their lives for this Country.

Many lost limbs, and some were incapacitated in other areas of a normal existence.
Nightmares may persist, the echoes of combat do not go away.
The inability to shake the memories can prove to change your life for the rest of your life.

Still, many function as fathers and mothers and raise a family, and do quite well in doing so.
They do so because they are the cream of the crop that this Country can ever produce and they are showing the courage that it takes to carry on no matter what.

These are the true Americans, the spine of America, the best of the best.

The ones that will still give their last breath to defend this Country.

In WWII, 25 missions on a bomber and you were out.
Many did not make that goal.
The bomber was either shot down or they lost it and could no longer perform their duty due to mental conditions.

This Country owes a lot to the people that were willing to put their life on the line to protect Her from the ones that would take Her away from US.

Our taxpayer money goes to pay the VA to take care of the ones that took care of US.

The ones that are responsible to maintain them have fallen down on the job, consistently.

Time to take our Country back.

We the People are not finished yet,…we have only just begun.

God Bless America and the ones that defended Her and the ones that defend Her to this day.

Why Americans choose Slavery while the rest of the World begs to be Free…by Brittius

shining city on a hillHat tip to Brittius for this most excellent commentary

6525ddf34b9d76e647fcc4ff6770806aBeing a Patriot, is the obligation that goes part and parcel with being born to this nation and the only way to be certain that this nation shall, remain free.
Those that do not understand this, are already, slaves.

I saw that with people in New York City in the 1960s envying the French and Bohemian life style. I spoke with a few former German soldiers, one an ex-Waffen SS trooper. I spoke to two women that were French and, were in Paris 1940.
Much of the strict laws were made lax, as the country was getting over the great Depression in 1940. My mother (still alive), says here, we had it until 1938/1939. The women said there was little to eat and absolutely nothing to waste. Not food, not anything. The government in Paris let the people live as long as nothing like murder was going on. The old German soldiers said pretty much the same thing. The Waffen SS trooper said, people, begged for something easy. Anything easy and getting over, without hard work or pain. People were poor and lowered themselves and became poorer. Females, he said, were willing to have sex for half bottle of wine and three cigarettes. Where did it get them? Only lower. Only more depraved. Then what? Hitler took Paris, and all the people were fleeing or hiding, except for a few partisan resistance people, and they gave the German troops a damned good fight. Everyone else ran, because it was easier to run.
People here, want the soft, lax life. A baby will always want the mother’s teat, until they are made to, start eating solid food. Sin is sweet. It is hard for people to migrate towards a slightly bitter hard scrabble life, so they seek what is sweet, sin.
I remember going through hamlets that were hot with firefights. NVA Regulars, not untrained VC. Fighting was brutal and also on occasion hand to hand. I recall the smoke cover, smells, at times slow motion of mayhem. Looking down the gun sights while moving, where your eye goes, so does that front sight. You think as you were trained. I’m only a teenager then, and suddenly, people run towards us, shouting in Vietnamese, they are naked. Their hands up and fingers spread as they run past us. A woman runs past holding a naked baby by one leg upside down, and all I see are human figures, I do not think like a teenager. Any one of them could try to kill us, my finger on the trigger. A shot from a hut and it draws fire. We were not teenagers, we were “terminators” for lack of a better word. The people wanted nothing to do with dying, bleeding, and suffering.
In America, people will run to whatever feeds them, clothes them, houses them, no different from any domesticated house pet. But who do we notice? The old beat-up Tom cat, the battered junkyard dog, or the animals that live in freedom. Even the lion in the zoo, seeks Freedom, because it is bred into them.

DECEMBER 7th 1941….. Inspires a letter to Obama

95-yr-old-vet-calls-out-obama

My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year.  People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.

I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate.  Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor , allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.

One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.

So here goes.

I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.

I can’t figure out what country you are the president of.
You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:
” We’re no longer a Christian nation
” America is arrogant”

– (Your wife even
announced to the world,” America is mean-
spirited. ” Please tell her to try preaching
that nonsense to 23 generations of our
war dead buried all over the globe who
died for no other reason than to free a
whole lot of strangers from tyranny and
hopelessness.)

I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you.

 To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.

After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.”

Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British?  Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War?  I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.

I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination.  You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.

Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man.

Shape up and start acting like an American.  If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue .  You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts , who was putting up a fight?  You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.

One more thing.  I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son.  Do your job.  When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him.  But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out.  The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.

You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.
You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy.  That’s not our greatest threat.  Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.
And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle…

Sincerely,
Harold B. Estes

Is it any wonder we call them

Air Force Vietnam Veteran Sets Obama Straight

Eagle-1Hat tip to AFVet for this fine article

Obama has played golf 145 times since he has been president

He is playing golf right now, (the 34th time this year.)

The economy is struggling.
People across the Country are being laid off or terminated because numerous companies cannot afford the cost of Obamacare if it is enacted.

The House of Representatives have made a major move to defund Obamacare while funding the government.

President Obama was in Missouri and stated that the paychecks for the Military would be in jeopardy if the government was shut down.
That is not true.
Nor is it true that SS checks will cease to go out, or Medicare/Medicaid payments.

He also alluded to the possibility that the Republicans are against HIM.

Poor baby.
No dumb-ass, they’re against your Marxist policies that are sending this Country down the tubes.

This bloated egomaniac still thinks it’s all about HIM.

You have stated that you are a Constitutional scholar,… I surmise that you are a fool to think that we are that stupid to believe we would allow you to trample on it.
You are now up against a nation that has awakened to the fact that you are purposely trying to destroy us and we will not allow that to happen.

You have shown that you do not revere our Flag, the symbol of our Nation, that many of us have fought and died in protecting it and what it represents.

It represents FREEDOM FROM TYRANNY, and a repressive government that is insistent on controlling every aspect of our existence.

WE THE PEOPLE ARE SPEAKING LOUDER EVERY DAY.

To those of you in congress that refuse to listen, we will be glad to put you in a position where you don’t have to anymore.

Obama, most of your sycophants are either hard core liberals or college students that show up for your endless jaunts to the failed schools that have destroyed the very fiber in the students that no longer have the knowledge of what it took to make this Nation what She once was.

Congratulations Barry..
You hate this Country and you have been fairly effective in destroying Her foundation.
If you think that you are gaining ground, you could be very wrong.

Possibly a miscalculation.
Maybe listening to the wrong advisers.
Her Foundation is US, and we do not give up or give in…..EVER !

America in Retreat

FLAG-IN-DISTRESS

Obama puts America in Dire Distress

President Obama’s Forward 2012 Campaign has led this Country back to the days of a pre World War 2  economy and Depression.

His Middle East Policies have led us into a retreat world wide unlike anything we have ever seen before.  One has to wonder if the stage is being set for World War 3.

-From Fox News we get this report-

State Department urges American citizens to leave Yemen amid terror threat

The State Department on Tuesday ordered all non-essential personnel to leave the U.S. Embassy in Yemen and urged all American citizens currently in that country to depart following the threat by Al Qaeda that has triggered temporary shutdowns of 19 American diplomatic posts across the Middle East and Africa.

The department said in a travel warning that it had ordered the departure of non-emergency U.S. government personnel from Yemen “due to the continued potential for terrorist attacks” and said U.S. citizens in Yemen should leave immediately because of an “extremely high” security threat level.

“As staff levels at the Embassy are restricted, our ability to assist U.S. citizens in an emergency and provide routine consular services remains limited and may be further constrained by the fluid security situation,” the travel warning said. The U.S. Embassy is located in Sanaa, the capital of Yemen.

Air Force Honor Guard pays Tribute this Memorial Day Weekend

Cleared for release by Joint Staff Public Affairs

This years Memorial Day tribute comes to us by way of our favorite contributor AFVet

(Air force Vietnam era Veteran)

4bc29294fc7acb1fffe4fdc06ed1a5e5We the People are on the doorstep of another Memorial Day.
My comrades in arms, men and women, who have served this Country cherish this day to commemorate the fallen.
WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War, Iraq, Afghanistan, on and on and on.
Arlington National Cemetery is a monument to the fallen soldiers that loved this Country enough to give their lives for it.
The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is guarded twenty four hours a day by an elite Marine Corp division whose duty it is is to honor and protect the fallen heroes.
Rain, Snow, Wind, doesn’t matter to them, Duty, Honor, Country.

I served on the Honor Guard while in the Air Force.
These Marines are the elite, the finest examples of Patriots that we have.
I would have considered it an Honor to stand guard over the Tomb of the unknown Soldier and the graves of thousands of others that considered their service essential for the Liberty and the Freedom that our Founding Fathers laid out in our Constitution and our Bill of Rights.

Many of our fellow fighters are buried overseas.
France, Germany, Guam, Hawaii, Philippines.

God Bless the ones that have been taken from us and are now in your arms.
God Bless America.

Memorial Day is a time to thank the ones that were fearless, or afraid, and willing to give their all
for this Country and their loved ones back home.

Thank you AFVet for your continued service to our great Country
