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.

Is this the America you remember?

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

I am a simple every day American who loves his Country and the Freedoms it affords us all.

I am an ” American ” free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country.

This Heritage of Freedom I Pledge to Uphold

President Obama Gets Owned by a 95 Year Old Pearl Harbor Survivor

Remembering the Pearl Harbor Attack on the 71st Anniversary 1941-2012

A Sleeping Giant is Awakened

When a 95 year old Hero of  “The Greatest Generation” Stands Up and Speaks Out like this, I think we owe it to him to share his words with as many Americans as we can.

Don’t Let The Liberals Re-Write This History!

My Fellow American Patriots and Friends. I would like to Honor this Wonderful Veteran in every way I can and hope that everyone will re-post his letter in emails and anywhere else you think this man would get the recognition he deserves. Please Tweet this Post as often as you like because the message is clear and present to all that is important to America.

Dear Veterans, please forgive US this Veterans Day November 11th 2012

As America takes pause to thank its many Veterans I think it also a good time to Apologize to all those who have served and are serving this great country.

We the People are sorry the American People Voted for all those things you have been fighting against these past two hundred and thirty plus years

How can you ever Forgive US

for letting you down?

From AFVET we have these words of Wisdom

The disenfranchisement of our troops has got to stop.
No ballots delivered to them or receiving the ballots ‘too late’ to be counted is not an excuse.
When our technology allows us to fly a drone over Libya being controlled by an individual in this country and to get the realtime video from it with the possibility of telling it to fire a missile on the enemy, there is NO EXCUSE TO CLAIM THE INABILITY TO RECEIVE AND COUNT BALLOTS SUBMITTED BY THE TROOPS ON A TIMELY BASIS !

To my fellow warriors that are still serving and had their vote dismissed by this administration as non-essential while you spend part of your life to defend and protect the greatest Country that ever existed you will not be forgotten.
This Country never forgets the ones that were lost or maimed.
The families that were forever changed because of the death a loved one in a foreign country that they were willing to protect.
Young children that will never know their father or their mother, all because they had a desire to serve their Country and all that She stands for.

America’s front lines extend across the world, some more dangerous than others.
Even if you are not in a war zone, time away from loved ones takes it toll on relationships.
Veterans Day is Sunday November 11, 2012.

To my Brothers and Sisters serving,…….Semper Fi.
It was an Honor to serve this Country, and to those that still are,
a Smart Salute to your Patriotism.
Well done !

When a 95 year old Hero of  “The Greatest Generation”   Stands Up and Speaks Out like this, I think we owe it to him to share his words with as many Americans as we can.

Memorial Day Everyday…Wearing Blue on Fridays

Blue Fridays.
Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing blue every Friday. The reason? Americans who support our troops used to be called the ‘silent majority.’ We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers. We are not organized, boisterous or overbearing.

Many Americans, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to recognize that the vast majority of America supports our troops. Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday — and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that every red-blooded American who supports our men and women afar, will wear something blue. By word of mouth, press, TV — let’s make the United States on every Friday a sea of blue much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers. If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, coworkers, friends, and family, it will not be long before the USA is covered in BLUE and it will let our troops know the once ‘silent’ majority is on their side more than ever. The first thing a soldier says when asked ‘What can we do to make things better for you?’ is: ‘We need your support and your prayers.’ Let’s get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example, and wear something blue every Friday.
