Who Let This Happen? Benghazi

I am going to break my tradition here of trying not to be crude. I am infuriated at the shit coming in about Benghazi, and I need to express as is, because I feel it represents the sentiments around the country right now.

image

First off: Mrs. Clinton. You are an ignorant, lying bitch.. You ignore the basic, most fundamental rights of free speech, by stating you would apprehend the man who made the video. What the fuck is wrong with you? We know you watched the live video from a UAV. We know about the reports and emails. We know this was a terrorist attack. You lied and implicated man that had nothing to do with the attack.

image

Now on to everything else.

Who the hell denied the requests, from CIA operatived, for assistance three dam times! Unsatisfied with what the administration is saying. This is fucking bullshit! Thank God we had a hero willing to ignore orders, a former SEAL named Tyrone Woods, who helped save thirty Americans.

image

That was a gutsy call. Knowing he could possibly die, he went on anyway. But why was he being told to stand down in the first place? Who the hell was giving orders?

image

Special Forces, including Delta Force, Marines, air support, and CIA teams were all ready to go assist. Who the hell told them to stand down? Why were there denials of support from an AC 130 gunship, hovering above a lazed target?

Why in the hell is the Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, saying there wasn’t enough god dammed intelligence to move in, when there was constant communications coming from ground source; two unmanned drones watching; emails; and cables coming in?

Why do we have Jay Carney, Ambassador Susan Rice, President Obama, and Hillary Clinton lying for weeks? Who is going to take responsibility for the fucking disaster? When will the American people get answers?

image

President Obama continued making matters worse calling four dead Americans just bumps in the road. Disgusting! How dare a person claiming to be the leader of this country act so callous towards a tragic event like this! Especially one that could have been avoided!

I am disgusted. Not only was there some negligence, but actual DENIALS for needed help! This whole administration is full of incompetence and must be held accountable.

We must start pushing representatives to investigate and stop worrying about their elections. The American people demand answers. This is unacceptable!

image

And every ass kissing, beauracratic excuse of a commander needs to be fired for not coming forward. I don’t care about your promotion. Americans don’t care about your career. We car about you young your dam job and keeping American citizens safe!

Romney and Ryan Responsible?

Oh Miss Cutter, why are you pushing something so untrue? I’m sorry, but Benghazi is an issue because a terrorist attack left four Americans dead. You may not think it’s a big issue, but the American people at large are very concerned about this issue.

We are worried, not only for the families of those killed, but our country’s general lack of response from the administration.

We are left wondering why did this happen? Why were there apologies, instead of measured response? Why was a video blamed? Why weren’t Marines present? Why were requests for security denied? Why are our questions not neing answered?

The American people know what happened without having the need to attend daily security briefings. We all,know it was a terror attack. We just wish your president would be honest and tell us. We don’t want to hear it’s still being investigated, when we know a UAV was streaming events live in the final hours.

This isn’t an issue brought up by Romney or Ryan just for political reasoning. This is something concerning millions of our people. We want answers!

Martin Luther King, Jr. “I have a dream”

images (1)In the 1950’s, America’s dream of the equality of mankind spoken of in the Declaration of Independence was far from a reality. People of color – blacks, Hispanics, Asians – were discriminated against in a lot of ways. The 1950’s were turbulent times to say the least, when racial divides began to finally come down due to Supreme Court decisions, such as Brown v. Board of Education; and due to an increase in the activism of blacks, marching for equal rights.

Martin Luther King, Jr., a Baptist minister, was a driving force in the push for racial equality in the 1950’s and 60’s. In 1963, Dr. King and his staff focused on Birmingham, Alabama. They marched and protested non-violently, raising the ire of local officials who sicced water cannon and police dogs on the marchers, whose ranks included teenagers and children. The bad publicity and break-down of business forced the white leaders of Birmingham to concede to some anti-segregation demands.

Thrust into the national spotlight in Birmingham, where he was arrested and jailed, Dr. King helped organize a massive march on Washington, DC, on August 28, 1963. His partners in the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom included other religious leaders, labor leaders, & black organizers. The assembled group marched down the Washington Mall from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial, heard songs from Bob Dylan and Joan Baez, and heard speeches by actor Charlton Heston, NAACP president Roy Wilkins, and future U.S. Representative from Georgia John Lewis.

Dr. King’s appearance was the last of the event and his closing speech was shown live on television. On the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, King evoked the name of Lincoln in his “I Have a Dream” speech, which is credited with mobilizing supporters of desegregation and prompted the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The next year, Dr. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

I wanted to honor this great man, and also I want you to reflect on his speech. Are we anywhere near Dr. King’s dream? I believe that we still have much to do, and much to learn.

The following is The speech in it’s entirety:

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves, who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of captivity. But one hundred years later, we must face the tragic fact that the Negro is still not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination.

One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize an appalling condition.

In a sense we have come to our nation’s Capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir.

This note was a promise that all men would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds.”

But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So we have come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice.

We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism.

Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.

Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice.

Now is the time to open the doors of opportunity to all God’s children.

Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood.

It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment and to underestimate the determination of the Negro. This sweltering summer of the Negro’s legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an end but a beginning. Those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual.

There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.

But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrong deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force. The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny and their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone.

And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall march ahead. We cannot turn back. There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, “When will you be satisfied?” We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. We can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities.

We cannot be satisfied as long as the Negro’s basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one.

We cannot be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote, and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote.

No, no we are not satisfied and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.

I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells. Some of you have come from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by storms of persecutions and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive.

Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our modern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed.

Let us not wallow in the valley of despair. I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream.

It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed. “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal.”

I have a dream that one day out on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state sweltering with the heat and injustice of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day the state of Alabama, whose governor’s lips are presently dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, will be transformed into a situation where little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plains and the crooked places will be made straight and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together.

This is our hope. This is the faith with which I return to the South. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope.

With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood.

With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

This will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with new meaning “My country ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim’s pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring!”

And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York.

Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania.

Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado.

Let freedom ring from the curvaceous peaks of California.

But not only that, let freedom, ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia.

Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee.

Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.

When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, we are free at last.”

Quit Your Complaining

Taking a break from the political to address complainers.

-Stop whining about politics you don’t agree with. I have my voice finally. Couldn’t use it in the military. Enjoy the fact you got to have an opinion, because I couldn’t.

-Stop telling me you’re tired. In Iraq, I slept three hour averages. I still get up in spite of insomnia and get to business.

-Stop whining about being poor. I am laid off, have to keep fighting the system glitches, & am disabled. I still take care of my bills.

-Stop complaining about kids. I’m currently fighting to see mine. Ex wife wants supervised visitation for me based on my war service.

-Stop complaining about bills. Everyone has them. I find ways to decrease my costs.

-Don’t you dare complain to me about working. I’m disabled and can’t do many jobs, but would if they’d hire me.

The end. Shut up. Nut uo. Become an adult.

Biden vs. Ryan, A Marine’s Take

Last night Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan squared off for the Vice Presidential debate, the only one that is to happen before the election in November. I’d like to give my two cents on what I saw, from the perspective of a US Marine.

First, I just want to say, if you or a loved one serve in the military, I would be terrified to reelect the Obama/Biden ticket. Vice President Joe Biden confirmed one of a few possibilities last night about the Obama Administration in regards to to foreign policy.

(1) He stated that neither he, nor the President, knew of the requests for additional security in Benghazi, leading up to the attack that happened. This is telling of one of two possibilities: (a) he is telling the truth and they weren’t keeping tabs on a pet project of Obama’s in Libya, meaning they found the fact the region hasn’t stabilized and had known al Qaeda presence (showing lack of caring, or disregard) ;or (b) he is lying about the issue all together, which is also a likely scenario, especially seeing as the President receives daily security briefs.

(2) Joe Biden’s callousness and laughing about our economy, abortion, joblessness, American deaths, etc. show how little the Obama Administration thinks of issues that concern most American citizens. I don’t know about everyone else, but the safety, stability, and sanctity of our rights do concern me, and this man found something funny about it all.

(3) Mr. Biden’s response toward Iran and stating the Administration will know if Iran gets nuclear arms capability should also disturb you. The reason you should be concerned is because earlier in the debate, Joe had been throwing the intelligence committee under the bus. So which are you going to believe? Either the intelligence agencies are good, or they’re not. You can’t say in one breathe intelligence resources suck, and in the next say you can rely on them for something else.

The way Vice President Biden acted was far beneath the dignity of the office he holds. He was inappropriate, callous, and in most cases, dam near manic. To think that such madness is only a heartbeat from being the leader of the free world is gravely disturbing.

What I saw from Congressman Ryan was a statesman ready to lead if required. There was resolve, even temperament, and a sense of self-worth. A man of principles wanting to help his country get back to greatness.

The “moderator,” if you dare call her that, was one of the lowest portions of the debate. She allowed her liberal bias and agenda shine through. She is why I cannot watch news anymore. She and her cronies in the mainstream media outlets have forgotten what being objective means.

I wish Ryan would have hit back on,a few moments, but I will compliment him on keeping calm, and trying to deliver a message about a path to restore America. Biden only attempted to defend a record, offering nothing for a better tomorrow.

My analysis of the debate is that Biden isolated Independents, women, and elderly voters. Ryan helped reaffirm Romney’s plan, but not massive momentum gains, although may have gained some Catholics due to his statements about his faith. And finally, the moderator secured herself fifteen minutes of fame among her liberal-media elitist friends.

Hopefully you will get out and vote, regardless of your stance. Without casting your ballot, you effectively lose your voice in America.

God bless.

Sharia vs. The US Constitution

image

I really felt obligated to write about this topic, because I have had the opportunity to see Sharia Law firsthand, and I felt I needed to give my very real perspective of why we cannot have Sharia in America.

First, let’s start with my own story, and then I’d like to go through our Bill of Rights, and explain using their own words to show how they clash.

My story is simple. In Iraq, there was a classic story. On of boy meets girl, girl likes guy, dad sees girl & boy, dad takes girl, brothers slit boy’s throat, community publicly stones girl.

The young man in the story was an 18 year old Iraqi soldier, the girl was I believe 16. She had been betrothed to another man, and her father didn’t like what he saw.

Honor killing ensued, and because the girl had no witnesses to say she didn’t cheat on her “beloved,” she was executed.

Doesn’t that freedom just sound wonderful? It was so disturbing this happened. Two young people killed for a conversation. This is Sharia. This is what the Islamic extremists want on US soil.

So lets go through the Constitution a little bit:

Freedom of religion: nope. Islam or die. Convert to anything else, die.

Freedom of Speech: women have no right to speak, and speaking against Islam is capital offense.

Freedom to petition for redress: no. Islamic law is the rule. No other way. Follow or be killed.

Freedom of press: sure, as long as you say nothing contrary to Islam, Mohamed, or clerics. Otherwise you die. And you only have access to approved media sources.

Keep and bear: not unless you are security, police or military.

No quartering of soldiers: Islamic state chooses and will enforce Sharia at will, using military force.

Guard against unlawful searches: they make whatever arbitrary laws they feel advances Islam.

Right to trial: unless it’s an honor killing. Oh, and forget about a fair one if you’re female. Four witnesses to prove rape.

Cruel/unusual punishment: they cut off limbs, stone, behead, point blank shoot, etc.

The list goes on. You have to fight Sharia at all costs, or risk death. They will stop at nothing to kill you.

Stay frosty.

What Will It Take?

What will it take to save America? Our liberties, our greatness, our very way of life? What can we do? These are questions I have heard time & time again. The answer is not McDonalds drive-thru quick, but it is possible. Many across this country are already taking necessary steps to accomplish The long term goal of The restoration of America.

After years spent in the trenches of letters-to-the-editor, blogging, campaigning for various candidates, talk radio, all in the defense of The United States Constitution, I think I finally have somewhat of a road map to actually assist in this.

1. Change Yourself

It goes without saying, that before you can truly affect a change to your surroundings, you must first change yourself. It’s time to start living by  principles that make America strong: integrity, charity, strong work ethics, hard work, etc.

2. Strengthen Your Family
Before we can change a country, we must work on strengthening the bonds of the family. This can be done in a multiple ways, there is no real right or wrong.

My family does a family night once a week, eat as a family, talk about school, keep everyone involved in planning, share The chores, and so much more. We do it together. It’s time you do too.


3. Educate Yourself and Your Family

It’s time to pick up a book and read. Read everything of an educational nature. Science, math, politics, etc. The only way we as a people are going to bring ourselves from The brink will be to become our best selves.

I’ve also hit several times on The failures of The public education system. It is up to you to make sure your children are prepared for life. The state is only interested in the indoctrination of America’s youth.

These are three simple things you can do. The fact is, this country will not change unless we do. And it won’t matter who is in office.

If you want to know more, I go in great depth in a book I wrote called Common Sense: How to Restore America. You can find it on amazon.com.

God bless.

Why He Shouldn’t Be POTUS Anymore

This isn’t a complete list by any stretch. President Barack Obama, needs to go, and here’s why I’m not voting for him, and frankly, why no American should either.

-He claims he didn’t know about the security situation in Benghazi.

-He has not kept one single promise he made to the American people.

-He has operated the government with trillion dollar deficits his whole presidency.

-His plan to ensure Americans are insured actually creates a situation where 20 million will lose their providers.

-Health insurance premiums have risen about $2,000 per family.

-Under his watch the national debt has risen 6 trillion dollars.

-He offers no plan to better the situation economically in America, using only “fair share” rhetoric.

-He plans on continuing the massive borrow & spend recklessly.

-Not even House or Senate Democrats like his budget.

-He’s gutting $716 billion from medicare to pay for Obamacare.

-He wants to continue to send money to our enemies in the middle east.

-He rarely attends security briefings, which results in American deaths

-He has signed more than HALF of all Executive Orders since the country first began.

-He didn’t meet with his Job Counsel helping to propagate 43 straight months of unemployment over the 8% mark, more than the last ten presidents COMBINED. Many having two terms in office.

-He finds time to meet celebrities, but fails to meet with world leaders THAT ARE ALLIED WITH US.

-He takes lavish vacations, while preaching hard times and tightening our pocketbooks.

-He has spent more time on the back nine and campaigning, than his time with security advisors or jobs/economic advisors.

-He has refused more drilling permits than ANY three presidents combined.

-He has become one of the largest threats to religious freedom and freedom of speech ever known. Speaking of tolerating Islam and not slandering the prophet Mohammad.

-His choices for advisors include socialists, eugenics believers, Marxists, thugs, and believers of the global warming hoax (list goes on, but that is a few types).

-He authorized $90 BILLION go to green energy companies that failed.

-For all his “stimulus” ranting, we are barely where we started in the unemployment rate from when he took office.

-He blames deficits on the wars, but on closer inspection, less than 1/8th of deficit spending was due to Iraq.

-He has not rendered respect to our flag on more than one occasion.

-He plans on downsizing military strength (including 17,000 Marines), which will weaken our ability to defend our interests both home and abroad.

-He wants Americans to pay more for gas, electricity, etc.

-He wants to initiate tax increases on anyone making more than 250k a year, when those are the job creators.

-He’s stated he wants veterans to pay for their own health care when they’re wounded sine they volunteered.

-He wants to have the government nationalize all industry like the government did with the Big Three auto bailout, essentially giving the government control over ALL aspects of business practice.

-He aims to disarm law abiding, American citizens.

-He wants to keep our borders open and have amnesty for illegal aliens.

-He granted executive privilege to Eric Holder during an investigation of Fast & Furious, made notorious for one of our brave border agents being killed by a weapon they lost track og, due to complete and utter negligence.

I can go on more, and if you’d like a private discussion of the ineptness of this president, I’d be more than happy to discuss this. Also, everything I’ve said is fact and can be backed with source material.

Make no mistake, if Obama is reelected, our country will go the way of Rome. Vote common sense, not this incompetent amateur.

Stories From the Front: Roadside Pick Up

I have had the great opportunity to meet some of the most noble and patriotic Americans in my life time. My nearly eight years in the Marine Corps have brought me face to face with real heroes.

Part of what I’d like to do is tell you some real stories either witnessed first hand, or when having permission from others, tell their stories. I want you to hear the stories so you all realize what the cost of liberty is.

This story will take us back to this date in 2005 (October 2nd). This is a firsthand account from my squad MAP (Mobile Assault Platoon) 3 Bravo, Weapons Company, Second Battalion, Seventh Marine Regiment. This is my account of the day, and is accurate to the best of my recollection and journals kept.

October was the first time I remember ever needing anything more than a poncho liner when I slept outside the wire. Had to finally upgrade to my green add sleeping bag. The air was crisp and clean, a slight amount of frost collecting in the shadows.

We’d been off base patrolling now for about four days, moving to various sites to establish patrol bases in and around the city of Fallujah. Like every morming, we wake up just before dawn as the sky starts to lighten.

I shave the stubble that has accumulated overnight, splashing my face with the ice cold water. It wakes me up and I shiver slightly as a breeze kicks up and gently brushes my faces.

Chow is simple, grab a plastic brown bag from the cardboard box, and pray it’s not Country Captain Chicken. I’m lucky this morning, I pulled Chili Mac.

There is not much time to eat this morning, as I can tell by Sergeant Frank’s irritation. Based on his demeanor, we just got frag orders to move to a new location ASAP.

I quickly eat, and take my position on,the Browning M2 50 caliber machine gun atop my Humvee. I get the morning report from Felt as we switch out.

I buckle my helmet and wait for the news.

Sergeant Frank gives me the news that a body has been called in, and we happen to be the closest squad. As the squad’s navigator, I take down the grid coordinates, and plug them into my GPS, after wrapping that up, I pull the map to plot: bad news. We’re heading into cowboy country.

The grid given me puts us near Ameriya, just outside one of the small rural hamlets on the outskirts. The road we’d have to take, Route Iron, is notoriously littered with roadside bombs, and the specific town (I cannot recall the name), is not a terribly coalition friendly neighborhood.

Sergeant Frank briefs the rest of the guys, and we mount up and roll out. It only takes us twenty minutes to get to the right location (you don’t go slowly on Iron).

Sure enough, as reported, we find the lifeless body of a young Iraqi male. Couldn’t have been much older than me at the time, 19 or 20 I suppose. With his hi-top sneakers, and blue jeand, we find a note. Unfortunately whoever wrote it chose not to use English, but since this was the fourth body our squad recovered, we had a good idea what the note said.

We load the young man onto our Humvee in a body bag, an I radio into battalion for HET’s (Human Exploitation Team) location. We’re advised to make our way to FOB (Forward Operating Base) Black. HET was with Fox Company today.

We make it all the way back to the edge of Fallujah without meeting resistance, my supposition being that the insurgents are sleeping in today.

The note, once translated by HET, confirms our suspicion: the young man was executed by Al Queada for assisting American forces. Such a shame.

We take his body to the morgue at Fallujah General Hospital, and fill out everything we are able with the staff to help them identify the young man’s family. Luckily this time he had an identification card, so it would make it much easier.

My heart breaks slightly for the family to this young man I’d never met. He was only trying to do the right thing, and was brutally murdered for it; shot execution style.

I help the orderlies get the body into the cooler of the morgue, and am again saddened by what I see: dozens of bodies, some without body bags, on tables and storage racks, many with shrapnel wounds (likely from a string of suicide bombings earlier that week).

I give what bags I have in my truck to the orderlies and they give me a “shoe kran” (thank you) and get to work bagging.

Back on patrol I can get my mind off that morgue. The evil that was done to women, children, and old folk just buying groceries at the market. The irritability lasts throughout the day.

The events of finding that young man, and visiting that morgue still have a way of haunting me. The cruelty perpetrated by the insurgent factions in our area were utterly horrific.

I am proud to have served with such wonderful people, and met many amazing Iraqis as well. There were many in our area willing to help, and many who felt America was good for being there to help them rebuild many things destroyed by the regime of Saddam Hussein.

It was the foreign Jihadists we were usually fighting. I cannot even begin to remember ever nationality discovered on Intel searches of passports and ID cards after a fight.

I wish I could have done more to help those people. I know with all My heart we were there for a good reason. I pray I helped show that there is goodness an strength in America. Where even though we were at war, we still showed compassion, respect, and understanding.

War is Hell, but I’d go there again to secure liberty for Americans, and help show what freedom is to those who may have never tasted its sweet bounty.

God bless.

An Oath

I can’t sleep yet again. So in my inebriated, sleep-deprived state I find myself doing what I normally do. Ranting.

I’m so fed up with the liberal ideology, especially when it comes to Barack Hussein Obama and his blatant disregard for the oath he swore in January 2009.

I’m a little old school I suppose, but I grew up in a community where a hand shake stood as an unbreakable vontract, and my father taught me that honor is one of the most important things a man can ever have.

On July 2, 2002 I took an oath. This oath was to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. The president takes a very similar oath.

To me, that oath is my life. There is no disclaimer saying when you feel like it or defend when it fits your agenda. No part of this oath states that you mold the words to fit an ideology. It says DEFEND that document.

Obama has ignored his, so here I am tonight upholding mine.

Obama is a domestic enemy to the Constitution. He and his buddies like Pelosi and Reid are acting outside the Constitution, and as such, must be removed from office, whether through voting them out or by the orders given in the Constitution for their immediate impeachment and removal from office.

Let facts be known of several of their countless violations, and usurpations of rights granted the free people of this nation:

They have enacted legislation contrary to our first amendment rights.

(1) Freedom of religion: they have allowed and called for the removal of our holy symbols, though the amendment clearly states they “shall make no law.”

(2) Freedom of the press: the administration, under direction of key members, has made threats to polling organizations in order to make their candidate, the incumbent president, appear to be doing better as an attempt to discourage the people from voting our conscience.

(3) Freedom to peacefully assemble and petition a redress of grievances: 22 Christians were arrested for prayer near the White House. Other incidents have occuref, but this is the most recent.

The government under this administration has been moving against our rights to keep and bear arms, using a foreign agreement with the United Nations, not ratified by our Senate.

The President has created numerous offices not of our choosing nor with the people’s Representatives permission, and has sent the enforcers of regulations he alone supposes, to cripple our people and destroy their ability to have a free market.

They have legislated powers and laws outside of the enumerated powers granted them by the people. Included with this are 139 executive orders creating laws by the Executive of this country, far beyond powers granted the president by our Constitution.

These usurpers must be stopped. This is but a short summary of violations to their oath.

We as a people can no longer tolerate this disregard for our highest law, our Constitution, which itself is in tune with a Higher power of Natural Law, and Nature’s God.

We have been humbly beseeching the government to hear our pleas, but they have fallen on deaf ears. As such, we have abdicated to a Higher authority, and will be using our force through voting to ensure our Futures are secured and Liberties safeguarded.

We have taken the oath for our Constitution, and we will see to it that our rights will be secured.

Numquam cede, Libertatem aut mors. 

The American People.
