Freedom’s Last Stand…by AFVet

10177299_647274155366687_5824664780780572287_n~ Commentary by AFVet from the Samiam60 Report ~

So now the Patriots and the men and women that have served this Country and currently may have their children serving in the Armed Forces are probably worried about their future.

We are manning the gates and the watchtowers.

The enemy within is obvious to US.

It appears that it resides in the White House.

What a shame!

The commander in chief is supposed to be the one that eliminates the threats to our Country, not the one who exacerbates the chaos that is being forced upon US.

The congress is supposed to restrict the president from becoming a dictator.

Has the congress failed in their duty to the American People ?

Has the president failed in his duty to the American People ?

Has the Supreme Court failed in interpreting the Constitution of the United States ?

Barack Obama is a dictator, prove me wrong, I am open for discussion on that subject.

How did we get here ?

382124_443361355726828_283418650_n

What happened to the

American Spirit ?

Is the ignorance that exists in this Country as far as government control a reflection of where we are or where we are going ?

The elegance of the American Spirit is still intact, and it will always be what we will depend on to restore our Country back from the devious entities that are determined to take Her down.

Men and Women are on the Watchtowers.

They are informed as to what is happening.

They see the destruction of this Country unfolding before their eyes.

Courage in the face of evil is what we are all about.

Hat tip to AFVet for this Outstanding Commentary

4bc29294fc7acb1fffe4fdc06ed1a5e5Sarah Palin is a great American.

I remember that in one of her speeches she asked us,…

”Well how’s that hope and change workin’ out for ya ?”

That kind of attitude is what we need going into the next election.

Feisty, brave, courageous, in their face defiance.
Knowledge of what is going on in this Country and the efforts afoot to take Her down is imperative.

1512422_695556740504458_996150903_n

I believe that we can take this Country back from the heathens that have made a 100 year old attempt to destroy the very foundations this Nation was founded upon.

Not on my watch, not now or ever!

154852_10200533199842972_685369077_n

The thrust and parry that goes on in congress needs to be stopped.

Going across the aisle is nothing more than giving up your principles for political gain.

I’m tired of the incessant rants of the parasites that infest the halls of congress, and for that matter, the ones that Occupy our White House.

pgvdp11

The most transparent government in history,… a LIE.

You can keep your doctor,… a LIE.

You can keep your insurance,… a LIE

 Barack Obama is a liar, plain and simple.
So are many of the members of congress.

So I ask you,…. how much more will it take to convince you to take a stand and take this Country back toward what She was designed to be ???

Sarah’s statement still stands as a call to arm yourself with as much knowledge as you can before the next election.

47451_695131890546943_786707977_n

Time is of the essence,…

let’s not waste it.

Gird your loins, because they are not going to go silently into the night.

But then,…neither will we.

”Cry havoc,

and let slip the dogs of war.”

1509255_652553664793514_1941407842_n

That is what it is going to take to beat them.

If you deny that,… you do not know the enemy.

We have two documents that give US the power over the opposition.

The Declaration of Independence, and the

Constitution of the United States of America.

1048685_10201423491619710_2019184367_o

Embrace them, they are stronger than any foe to the Republic.

Patriots abound in this great Country even though their voices are being suppressed.

4bc29294fc7acb1fffe4fdc06ed1a5e5

I admire the men and the women that are willing to serve in the

U.S Armed Forces

They are Patriots, heroes, and people that should be looked up to as to their integrity and their courage to enlist in the first place.

Sadly, many among us have no desire to defend this fine Country, nor are willing to learn how to do so.

They would rather sit back and reap the benefits of the ones that were brave enough to enlist.

So,…. are they Heroes ?

Ask them,…. they will say no, just doing my job.

Many times that job resulted in the loss of limbs due to the cowards that would not expose themselves, rather they hid behind women and children, melting into the community, and our troops could not define them as the enemy.

Women and children being used as walking bombs.

The same thing was going on in Vietnam.

Our soldiers were hard pressed to know who the enemy looked like.

These are the tactics of cowards.

These are the tactics of people that are afraid of openly confronting a great military.

These are the tactics used by people that cannot play a fair game, hence they cheat.

This is very similar to what we have developing in the US government, or, for that matter, is in place now.

The philosophy is the same.

Hide the enemy.

I did not want to take the Patriotic spirit away from this post.

We are America

The finest military is on display everyday, all over the world.

Let us never forget the doctors and the nurses that tended to the wounded.

Let us never forget the paramedics that transport them from the field to the hospitals.

Let us never forget the valiant warriors that this Country has produced.

We should be very proud

No matter what happens in the future, we are Americans and we are the voice of Freedom throughout the world.

No one can ever take that away from US.

 I would also add that the parents of these brave individuals are to be commended for their courage to feel confident enough in their children to allow them to go off on an adventure that will change them forever,

Mr. AFVet, I’d be your Wing Man any day!

How long will we allow this War on America to continue?

941468_10201407376736848_1211595244_n

The invasion of America began with the election of Woodrow Wilson and continues to this day.  Howbeit ever so subtle in the beginning we hardly noticed the enemy at our gates.  Some one hundred years after the fact we find ourselves in  amazement at the overwhelming forces that have come to bare against our Constitution and way of life. This is like awaking from a nightmare only to realize it is reality.

America is in peril today not so much because of this corrupt administration but more so because of a populace that has embraced their Marxist/Socialist ideology.  A populace that no longer embraces the values that made this the greatest nation the world has ever known, but rather, a populace that has sold their soul for a free ride.

America is on the Brink of Destruction

America is on the brink of destruction and it will be this generation of Americans that will determine whether America can be brought back to her former glory or be lost forever in the sea of apathy.

Now is the time for all American’s to rise up and speak with a loud voice. The November Mid-Term Elections will be upon us before we know it and there is no time to waste. This is the time to tell your family and friends to get involved. This is the time to get them informed. America hangs in the balance my friends.

What’s it gonna be America?

4bc29294fc7acb1fffe4fdc06ed1a5e5This Country was founded by men and women who possessed an Iron Will.

They took on the Mightiest Military force in the world at that time.

What they accomplished was indeed extraordinary.

To wrest this fledgeling upstart colony from the mandates of a King because of the desire to be free and to get out from under the onerous taxes that were prohibiting a burgeoning society from blossoming into the Country that we know and love.
The revolution started with a bunch of people that destroyed a boatload of Tea in the Boston harbor, dressed as Indians.

The tax on the Tea had just been increased, and the people had had enough.

boston-tea-party

Well the King was tired of these colonials and their attitude against the crown, so he sent his army and his navy over here to take care of the situation.

Many battles ensued.

George Washington lost many battles on the way to victory.

The battle that counts is the one that is won at the end of the war.
Washington never gave up.

Tenacious attitude, even when his troops’ feet were frozen and bleeding.
What great men they were !
Without them, where would we be today ?

revolutionary-war-minutemenThe iron will that they had is still prevalent in today’s conservative bloggers, conservative talk show hosts, and the Modern Tea Party movement, all of whom have the desire to see this Country turned back from the direction She is headed under the present administration and the politicians that are insistent on allowing this president to break the law.

Americans have always realized when the oppression of big government has become an instrument of tyranny, and that is where we are now.

With the recent comments by the current president that he will act on his own and bypass congress, and the congress cheers his statement, should tell you that we are far to along the road of an imperial government.

It will take an iron will to resist the onslaught that the liberals will obviously launch upon anybody that tries to disrupt their agenda.

Many warriors exist;
Michelle Malkin
Sarah Palin
Allen West,… just to name a few.

Duck_Dynasty_Phil_Robertson

And keep in mind that these people are constantly excoriated because they disagree with the people that are insistent on taking America to a third world status.

We must have an iron will to save our Country from the ones that intend to destroy Her.

The battle is beginning yet again, are you ready ?

God Bless America.

Those Wacko Gun Control Activists are at it again!

486114_600661426628077_925954504_n

It is common knowledge that the last two attempts at mass murder were committed using Shot Guns (most likely on the advice of Joe Biden) instead of the Semi-Automatic AR15 or AK47 large capacity clip weapons used in the past.  The gun control advocates have labeled these weapons as ‘Assault Rifles’ but just so you know, they are not. 

Our government has classified an ‘Assault Rifle‘ as one that fires in ‘Fully Automatic‘ mode similar to a Machine Gun.

Well, just when you think you’ve heard it all, Fox News comes up with this latest report!

gun-control-giffords-kelly

Gun control advocates vow to take fight into 2014 elections, spend millions

Gun control advocates acknowledged Sunday that they were disappointed with efforts this year to tighten firearm laws across the country but vowed to continue their fight, including spending millions on their candidates in next year’s elections.

Their comments came one year after the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre in which 20 students and six adults were fatally shot in Newtown, Conn. However, Congress failed to pass no major gun-control legislation in the aftermath.

“We get disappointed,” said Mark Kelly, who co-founded the gun-control group Americans for Responsible Solutions with wife Gabrielle Giffords, the former congresswoman who was shot on the campaign trail in 2011.

The retired astronaut and Navy captain told “Fox News Sunday” the defeat of the so-called, bipartisan Manchin-Toomey Senate gun bill was “not a good day” but that his group plans to spend $25 million in the next election cycle.  

Though the focus of America’s gun debate appears to be shifting from weapons bans to keeping firearms away from criminals and the mentally ill, gun-rights advocates seem steadfast in their efforts to limit background checks and repeal laws that prevent people from defending themselves against attackers.

“There’s no victory until we get guns in school and elsewhere to protect ourselves,” Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, told Fox News. “The legislation that is on the books is lethal … and we simply have to get rid of them.”

Kelly said that anti-gun groups were able to spend about as much as pro-gun groups in the recent Virginia gubernatorial race in which Democrat Terry McAuliffe defeated Republican Ken Cuccinelli — a sign that the balance of power is shifting after his side got outspent in the Capitol Hill gun debates.

Carlee Soto, whose sister was killed in the Dec. 14, 2012, attack at Sandy Hook elementary, in Newtown, Conn., also acknowledged the effort to tighten gun laws has been difficult, but she remains optimistic.

“Some days I don’t want to speak in front of the camera … but my sister can’t do that,” she told Fox News. “I believe we will have sensible gun laws in the future.”

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

“The Greatest Generation”

AFVet speaks out on ObamaCare with an Internet Solution

1472996_10151920215547740_2114269227_nHat tip to AFVet for this commentary

So what has the internet given us?

The ability to speak to people across the world at lightning speed.
I remember my Father saying that computers and the internet will never amount to anything.
It’s just a passing fad, a toy.
No amount of convincing on my part could change his mind.
He was a stubborn man and I was a son that just didn’t understand.

If he were alive today, he would be astounded at the powerful instrument it has become.

This brings me to my point.

Obamacare is obviously a debacle, and the republicans are possibly looking for a legislative alternative.

A legislative alternative is not what we need.

Rather, take the regulations away from the private sector, eliminate the state line restrictions that have been imposed, and allow the marketplace to do what it does best,….compete.

I can buy a book on Amazon.com, and I have no idea where the company is located, nor do I care.

If that is possible today, why can’t we buy an insurance policy in the same manner ?

The insurance companies should be able advertise across the nation with no restrictions !

The ones that can’t compete will fall by the wayside.

If that was allowed, the prices would go down, and we wouldn’t be forced to pay for maternity insurance if you are a 60 year old man or woman.

Nor would we be paying for ‘morning after pills’.

The logical, plausible aspect of this concept is I believe obvious to anyone that contains some degree of common sense.

No republican alternative.

Repeal Obamacare, and give the 85 % of the American People that were happy with their coverage to shop for it again on an open market.

The remaining 15 % can find something if they want it.

What we don’t want is the government mandating anything to people that actually have to work for a paycheck.

Go ahead Obama and just keep Poking the Tiger.

Block off our monuments, try to intimidate the Veterans.
Do you really think that you are winning ?
Do you really think that you are making a statement that we will respect ?
Why did you shut off the sports broadcasts to our troops overseas ?
Stamping your feet in front of mature adults only make you look like a petulant child.
You are playing with fire here.
Many of the parents of these troops are well aware of what you are doing and I would surmise that they completely disapprove of it.
The spouses and the families of active duty troops are not supporting of you.

Don’t care huh ?
Lame duck president huh ?
Maximum push on the Marxist agenda huh ?
Take America to Her knees huh ?

OK,…go for it.
Go ahead and try moron.
Given the fact that you have never run a corner grocery store, and probably couldn’t, and now you and your thugs are tearing this Country, OUR COUNTRY apart intentionally is completely unacceptable.
It appears that you are itching for a revolution.
Preventing religious freedom in the military is a good start.
The constant antagonizing of the People of this Country hasn’t worked so well to your advantage yet has it ?
Keep trying Barry, just keep it up because there are some folks out there that haven’t gotten the message yet.
Some are so slow that they voted for you twice, and it will take them awhile to catch up.

3 more years is a long time, think you can make it ?

rant off.

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 !
