The True Core of the Progressive

Is it me or do Progressives never cease to reveal their banter of hatred?  Thus goes Asheville City Councilman Cecil Bothwell.  Bothwell has never been shy of criticizing others.  He has made a career of being a humanist who backs his theories as truths backed by more theories and dismisses anyone who does not believe as he does.  He has made a habit in his blog, of belittling Christianity and its followers, which based on his beliefs, are not surprising.  This information is just a set-up of his latest tirade which is steeped in hatred and goes against his self-proclaimed accepted life philosophy, following the Golden Rule (referenced in Wikipedia – )

Let’s review the “Golden Rule”.  As stated by Wikipedia the Golden Rule is also known as the ethic of reciprocity.  Its original form can be express ‘Do unto others as you would have done onto you’ or something very similar.  According to most scholars it is found in nearly every religion in some sort.  It has a positive note as ‘One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself’.  It has a negative version as ‘One should not treat others in ways that one would not like to be treated’.  It is a great way to live life and ‘IF’ Councilman Bothwell truly lived like this it may speak volumes of who he could be.  

If this is truly the philosophy which Councilman Bothwell has taken, why did he respond to an op-ed article from columnist John Boyle, who claimed those against UN Agenda 21 are just conspiracy theorists like this –

“Great column, John,
All those in favor of an unsustainable future, raise your hands.
All of you who prefer dumb growth to smart growth, raise your hands.

Now that the idiots have self-identified, perhaps those of us with our hands down can have an adult conversation about the choices we face in a resource-poor world, where 1/6 of the human population don’t have access to potable water, where 1 in 4 American kids go to bed hungry.

As for the flaming fear of world government exhibited by the paranoids with their hands up—apparently they prefer to settle international issues with nukes instead of diplomacy, and don’t want some kind of mechanism for international discussion. Call it the United Nations or the League of Nations, or the Council of Elders, whatever … but thank goodness we have developed systems to achieve peaceful resolution of the big issues that face the globe. Is it perfect? Of course not. Is it essential? Absolutely.”

Here’s the link to this response –

So let’s review.  Cecil wants to live by the golden rule.  He calls some very intelligent and active voters self-identified idiots and paranoids.  Therefore he himself is a self-identified idiot and a paranoid.  It’s an all too common tool by the Progressives to attack common citizens in order to make us look dumb, but it works quite the opposite way.  The irrational hatred in his response takes away from any logical argument he may have had.  It’s becoming an all too common response from Progressives at all levels.

Why would he attack with such fury?  It’s because he has a lot invested in the fear politics of climate change and sustainability.   His own blog states he has ‘has addressed issues of sustainabiliity, human rights and social responsibility in personal appearances and media venues around the world’ (this is straight from his blog so the typo is his own).  His very own blog shows that he speaks of the building blocks of UN Agenda 21 (A21) itself.  His pure investment into A21 is why he has to defend it with such hatred.  He tries to make others look like a fool when in reality his rage expressed makes him look like the hypocrite. 

A21 is a serious and real issue.  The evidence of its existence is everywhere and has been elevated in the recent Rio+20 Conference which just ended.  Its backbone is climate change/sustainability and its claims.  Science has proven that these claims are FALSE!  Check out what Glenn Beck said on his show via an article from –

It’s people like Cecil Bothwell who are trying to take away our freedoms with hate claims against those who care enough to actually do their own research.  Please do your own research and find the truth for yourselves.  We must be a new generation of Defending Fathers if we want freedoms passed to our children and our grandchildren.  The future of the next generations is in our hands today.



Introducing Jack Brosch

As I entered Thomas Street Tavern in Charlotte, NC I saw a man looking at the pictures on the wall.  He was exploring the rock-n-roll memorabilia that was strewn all over the walls at the classic downtown diner.  I called out “Jack” and I heard him respond.  Over the next couple of hours I got to meet one of the most down-to-Earth individuals you could ever talk to.  He admitted he was slightly on the numbers side, but at times I could see the emotion well up inside of him as we talked about what is going on in North Carolina and throughout the nation. 

Jack is running to become the Congressman of District 12 in North Carolina.  He admits he has an uphill battle against Liberal establishment candidate Mel Watt.  It is thought in many circles that Congressman Watt is bulletproof.  I admit it will be tough, but if people start listening to Jack’s message and ignore the D or the R behind the candidate, they will realize he is the better candidate for them.  He is truly for the people and will be a vast improvement from Mel Watt.

As we had lunch we talked about a wide array of subjects.  He is very involved in the Frederick Douglas Foundation to the point where he is trying to get specially made calendars made to educate people about the rich black history within the Republican Party.  He is trying to educate that the Republican Party backs tradition family and the sanctity of life which are traditional church values at all levels.  He wants to help debut C.L. Bryant’s powerful documentary ‘Runaway Slave’ in North Carolina.  He is about truth and is for the people.  In everything he said you could see the passion he has for the people he will serve.

After we ate I had the opportunity to do a lightning round of issues with him.  It shows where he stands on many issues and hopefully is a great introduction on why we should back this man for Congress.  Here are some of his answers and my feelings about them.

~The first thing we talked about was voter ID.  He said he wrote a letter to the NC General Assembly and asked them not to compromise their position of a strong voter ID law.  He said sure we may not get the veto overrode, but what is the greater consequence.  We may see voter fraud during November, but we will see a stronger law in place once we have the Governor seat.

~On illegal immigration the one thing that really jumped out at me was “Secure the Borders”.  He seems to believe in the laws in place and the process for legal immigration we have already. 

~On taxes his ultimate goal is the Fair Tax.  In order to get the Fair Tax he will support 9-9-9.  It’s all about getting rid of what we have right now and moving towards a system that will work.

~On government regulations his words were “stop them!”  He believes in getting rid of a lot of the regulations we have on the books right now.  He also supports the idea that any regulation put into effect that costs the government $100 million or more, must get full approval from Congress before it can be implemented.

~He is a strong supporter of the military and Veterans.  He says that if the US goes to war, the military MUST BE fully funded to include those Veterans who are returning with disabilities.  He also cares about those providers who are exploiting our Veterans into causing fraudulent claims.  He also believes in the funding of NASAA and DARPA.

~He is a strong supporter of the elimination of public unions.  He said it makes no sense for two sides to go into bargaining meetings when the two sides are from the same group.  He is also in support of a national right to work law.

~When it comes to government fraud, he believes that there is enough fraudulent spending in the government to balance the budget.  He believes we need to crack down on those things we spend money on that are waste.  He also believes we should use technology to identify the areas of waste (Jack runs a computer solutions company and knows what he is talking about in this area).

~He believes in opening up an environment that is friendly to creating business and creating jobs.  This is through tax cuts and deregulation.  Also he is for reducing the repatriated tax rate in order to bring money from oversees back into the US.

~He believes that the Federal Department of Education should be shut down and that education should be a state issue. 

~He believes that laws passed by Congress should apply to Congress.  He believes that laws should be available to the public for 72 hours for review before Congress votes on them.  He also believes in the sunset clause.

~He desires for the US to pull out of the UN.  He also has great concern for the Law of Sea Treaty.  He stated a concern that treaties should go through both chambers of the house rather than just the senate.

~He wants the privatization of energy.  He supports shallow water drilling and safe fracking for natural gas.  He does not believe in subsidies.

~He believes in a year to year balanced budget and says he would help shut down the government until they get one passed.

~With great passion he said UN Agenda 21 is one of the most dangerous things America faces.  This is one reason he said the US needs to get out of the UN.

Finally I wanted to show what kind of a person Jack is.  I asked the question ‘What is the number one problem this nation is facing?’  His response, “We are loosing our freedom.  We our loosing our ability to own personal property, we are loosing the ability to earn and keep our money, we are loosing the ability to create businesses, and we are loosing the ability to educate our children as we see fit.”

I then asked ‘How can this problem be fixed’.  He quickly answered very simply, “A Balanced Budget Amendment and the Fair Tax.” 

After I left I realized that I just met with a man who should become the next Congressman from NC District 12.  We just need to get the message out to the people.  I realize you may not agree with 100% of what Jack stands for, but it’s important to understand that he is a 100% improvement over the person sitting in the seat right now. 

If you live in NC District 12, remember to Back Jack in November!  If you do not live there, please help his campaign by giving a small donation.  This is the type of person we need for the sake of America and to fight for freedom.

Remember and repeat after me “I Back Jack!”

Moron of the Week: Greta Hawkins

I’d like to congratulate our “Moron of the Week” award winner Edna Cohen School principal Greta Hawkins, for slapping the face of Veterans everywhere who have served this nation.

You ask who is Greta Hawkins and why does she deserve the time of this post?  She is a principal in Brooklyn, NY who has used her sovereign power to prevent kindergarten students from singing one of the greatest patriotic anthems ever written, ‘God Bless the U.S.A.”

Ever since I was in high school, our choir sung Lee Greenwood’s classic anthem.  It sent chills down my spine every time I heard it.  I enjoyed being part of something so patriotic and near to my heart.  When I joined the Army I lead my platoon in this song when I was in training.  I often sung the song to myself and continued to take pride in this song.  This is one song that has continued through my life.  I recently resurrected singing it at an Army school late last year singing it before my class with no accompaniment.  I didn’t need any accompaniment because the song is imbedded in my mind and heart.  I do not need words and will never need words.

So why would Greta Hawkins do this?  She “claims” that ‘we don’t want to offend other cultures’.  Wow, I bet the PC police are happy that they have a new spokes”person” on board for their side.  But then again is Principal Hawkins someone they want on their side?  I’m sure glad she’s not on ours. 

Doing a web search on her I found some incredibly startling facts on Principal Hawkins that leave me with one blazing question, “Why is she still working?”  I found peer reviews of Miss Hawkins from teachers for 29 January, 19 February, and 28 April.  The majority of the reviews in each of the reports state that shee is one of the poorest rated principal’s I have ever seen.  In the 29 Jan report – – a teacher gave her all “poor” ratings in every aspect of her job.  Same in the 19 February report –  The most extensive report was the 28 April report –  This report has 19 teachers who reviewed her job performance and 13 of the 19 gave her all poor or very poor ratings.  What is it saying when a large majority of the faculty under a principal see nothing but a “poor” figure.  See the reports for yourself and see if it doesn’t make you scratch your head.  To quote one of the teachers – “Greta Hawkins is vindictive and malicious towards everyone who is not in her close circle of trusted employes until she decides they are no longer useful to her”.

Next thing I found was an article titled “Brooklyn principal a ‘bully’.  WHAT?  That’s right it seems that our good friend Greta Hawkins has been threatening parents by saying that she’ll turn then in to the Administration for Children Services.  A parent group called “Action Committee to Save PS-90” has brought allegations to the District 21 Community Education Council, who School Chancellor Dennis Walcot said he couldn’t deal with “personnel specifics publically”.  I’m not even going into the spineless action of Mr. Walcott, but as I read the article, the laundry list against Miss Hawkins is very long.  I’ll also say that the laundry is not clean.  The amazing part of this article is that it is a union periodical –  Just to give you an idea of the person we are mentioning here I will take one quote from the article – “She’s not a boss who pushes the staff to work better. She’s a boss who lies to end your career,” said one longtime school veteran, who asked for anonymity for fear of retaliation.

Her reign of stupid does go back ever farther –  From what I’ve read the 9 teachers who filed the complaint have been reassigned instead of Principal Hawkins being removed. 

With all this evidence that has piled up over the years the big question goes to Isabel Dimola, the Community District Superintendent.  Miss Dimola, Why does Principal Hawkins have a job?  To quote the union article – Hawkins’ critics say she took a healthy school culture and made it toxic.

This is just a small example why me and my wife home school.


UPDATE:  Nice article from the NY Post that goes into her latest episode in detail.  See for yourself:

UPDATE 2:  Please ‘Like’ the FaceBook page Fire Greta Hawkins and become the solution to this problem.  We need to come together and help PS90 end this reign of terror.

UPDATE 3:  It seems that Dennis Walcott is at it again.  Ignoring the concerns of faculty and parents, Cancellor Walcott sides with his beloved dictator principal.  This is systemic and the concern needs to be elevated.  This is a multi-level corruption that needs to be defeated from the outside.  If we need to, let Mayor Bloomberg hear what the nation has to say.  Even though I’m in NC, the children of America are very important to me.  This principal, and now Chancellor Walcott are setting these kids and the future of this nation into the garbage with their heavy handed, dictorial rule.  Reminds me alot of past governments who ruled their people merciously and with great fear and contempt.  I am now asking the ouster of both Principal Hawkins and Chancellor Walcott!

UPDATE 4:  Mayor Bloomberg announces that Beiber is gone saying it was Principal Hawkin’s decision.  He is backed by Chancelor Walcott.  Also Lee Greenwood speaks out!  “I’m just disappointed. I’ve sung it at many elementary schools myself. It’s always a wonderful moment,”  Also it seems that Principal Hawkins is being investigated by the DOE for hitting a student while taking a cell phone away.  This and more –

A Crazy Thought – Did the Democrats Throw the Wisconsin Recall?

I know this may sound crazy but let’s take a look at what they’ve been saying about certain things.

First, we have the Liberal funded Occupy Movement.  The Occupiers have been up in arms protesting those corporations which they dubbed as the 1%.  They attack banks everywhere and claim that big business is oppressing the common person or what they describe as the 99%. 

Next, we have the Liberal politicians and their class warfare barrage.  They are claiming that the richest of Americans do not pay their fair share and should be taxed more in order to fund the government social handouts that so many Americans are dependent on.

Next, we have the fact that the amount of money spent in the Wisconsin Recall Election leaned tremendously towards the right.  Walker outspent Barrett $34 million to $4 million. 

Finally, we have the Main Stream Media using the disparity of spending in this election as the main reason that Walker won.  They are stating that if you spend enough money to get your message across then people will hear it.

All this is fine and dandy, but let’s look at the facts.

First, the Occupy Movement includes people like Michael Moore who are the 1% of the riches people in America.  It was proven that many people in the original Occupy Movement were either hired or there for college credit.  Some didn’t even have a clue why they were there.  In actuality they should not be protesting against the businesses who give the people jobs, but instead the government regulation which raise our cost of living, make it near impossible to live out the American Dream, and have oppressed more people than any private corporation ever has.

Next, class warfare is an imaginary war created by a foolish group of people who want to oppress the people by forcing the cost of living beyond what they can afford.  How do you do this?  They do this by overtaxing the rich into passing the taxes along to the consumer.  This will force everything we buy to be more expensive and make it impossible to live without being dependent on the government.  The more they can force people onto government dependency, the more control they have of the people.

Next, the spending in this race is solid fact, but is it reality?  The amount of funding that Governor Walker received was large, but could it have been matched or topped by the Liberal machine?  The answer is absolutely, yes!  You see 14 of the top 20 political donors from 1998-2012 are Liberal leaning.  Eleven of those 14 are unions.  The Liberals complained that the Koch Brothers effected this elections with donation and they did.  Problem with this is historically between 1998-2012 the Koch Brothers have given just over $12 million in donations, the 11 unions in the top twenty have given over $444 billion dollars in that same time frame.  Just to give you an example in North Carolina Congressional District 12, Liberal/Socialist stall worth Mel Watt has a huge donation advantage over his opponent Jack Brosch.  What people do not know is that over $304 thousand of Watt’s major donations $327,650 were given by PACs and Committees. 

Finally the MSM is looking for any reason it can to sway this election into a positive light for the Liberals.  What better way to do this than to paint the light of the evil 1% coming in and buying an election.  They ignore the fact that 38% of union households voted for Walker.  They ignore the fact that the unions tried to intimidate this election for their good.  They refuse to acknowledge the people of Wisconsin who truly gave a message to the entire United States that they will not tolerate this injustice in their state. 

So now back to my original thought.  Did the Democrats throw the Wisconsin Recall Election?

Ask these few questions for yourself and then once again come back to the original question.

With the presence of the Occupiers at the anti-Walker rallies, was there an attempt to tie Walker in with the so called 1% which the movement is against?

With the fear mongering the union officials and Liberals in general were preaching, was there an attempt to divide the chasm of classes through messages like the rich versus the unions or the GOP versus the working man?

Could the unions have outspent the Koch brothers and other donors had they decided to?

Why did the unions, who have a storied history of indulgence donations to Liberal candidates, fail to outspend the Walker Campaign?

Why did the Democratic Party fail to support Mayor Barrett financially until the last minute when they were at one point calling this the most important election in America second to the Presidency?

If other Liberal candidates are getting the majority of their major funding from PACs and committees, why was Barrett’s coffer not closer to Walkers?

Why was the media so quick to turn this election into an issue about money rather than an election about the issues?

Could this be a slight of hand where the Liberals sacrifice a major, nationally publicized state election for the purpose to create class warfare and tie the GOP to the evil 1%?

So did the Democrats throw the Wisconsin Recall Election?  The circumstances allow this as a possibility.  When I go through and answer these questions it pops into my head that it’s a better possibility than not.  The Liberals are trying to establish any dialog that takes our attention off of the economy and jobs.  Problem is that they have been doing this for so long now they are most of the time predictable.  This play may be another attempt to change that dialog and go to their strength which is to play off of emotions rather than common sense.  I’ll let you look at what happened and determine for yourself, but I do ask that you watch closely what happens in the next few days.  If the dialog increases about the campaign spending issue, then what I am proposing here is true.  If it tones down in the MSM, then they are clear and good luck in November.  I can let you know for sure one thing, I’ll be watching.


UPDATE:  My blog is designed to get people to think, do your own research, and then come up with your own solutions.  This post is a perfect example of this.  So do your own research and watch what happens in the coming weeks and months.

UPDATE 2:  It seems the spending differential is not as stagering as first thought.  Big Journalism has done the math and found that the 7 to 1 ration the Liberals are spinning is just another attempt at smoke and mirrors.  They are playing this as the evil 1% who are the GOP, when in reality they spent near $25 Million themselves to Walker’s $34 million.  And the thing about it is that they are counting money which was spent for Walker and not counted against his campaign, yet they refuse to count the same type of money spent for Barrett.  Typical hypocritical tactics used by the Socialists in the DNC.  To me it still looks plausible that the DNC didn’t try in this election as hard as they could have, but it’s now more plausible that they purposely hid the funding by having outside sources pay for their own adds as a fall back to claim the 7 to 1 spending ratio.  Please do the research and find out for yourself how the lies are flying.  Here’s the story from BJ –

Union Police acts as Union Thug!

In a rally for Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, President of a local police Union, Dan Wesolowski, abused his position to remove a pro-Scott Walker/anti-union protestor from an event that featured former President Bill Clinton.  It is quite disturbing that an officer of the law would use his status like this to silence the opposition.  As seen in the videos the protestor did nothing wrong and was exercising his God-given right to protest.  It seems Officer Wesolowski did not like his message so he forcefully removed him from the crowd and I’ll let you determine if he went over the line. 

Go to this link to see the videos –

I’ll also give each of you the chance to take it up with Officer Wesolowski.  This link gives you his e-mail address –

As the President of the ASP-WI I belive Officer Wesolowski should have used better judgement than to use force on a peaceful demonstrator that went against his views!

Thuggery at its greatest.


UPDATE : Here’s is an interview from FOXNEWS92.5 between former Marine Dave Willoughby (the arrested) and radio host Drew Steele.  This is a great listen that puts it in the light from Mr. Willoughby’s perspective –

Obama and the Military Relationship

Since the beginning of this country, the US Military has stood in support of this nation.  Taking an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States, we have stood proud in times of war and peace.  We have held in high honor such things as the American flag and the Star Spangled Banner.  We are proud to serve this nation and its people.  Therefore it is at this time I’d like to create a factual timeline to show certain events that will sway many of us come November 2012. 

16 September 2007 – Candidate Obama stands for the playing of the Star Spangled Banner with his hands clasped in front of him.  The US Flag Code states – “During a rendition of the National Anthem when the flag is displayed all present except those in uniform should stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart”.

January 2009 – President Obama nominated Elana Kagan for the Supreme Court of the United States.  As the Harvard Law School Dean she tried to ban the military from campus.  Her nomination is seen as an anti-military justice.

7 April 2009 – The Department of Homeland Security releases a report called Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment in which they stated included a section titled – “(U) Disgruntled Military Veterans” in which they stressed that a large number of Military Veterans were joining white supremacist groups.  To quote – A prominent civil rights organization reported in 2006 that “large numbers of potentially violent neo-Nazis, skinheads, and other white supremacists are now learning the art of warfare in the [U.S.] armed forces.”  To refute this baseless claim: June 2011, former member of the Navy Abu Khalid Abdul Latif was charged in a plot to attack a Seattle based Military Entrance Processing Station.  28 July 2011, Army Private First Class Naser Jason Abdo was charged with plotting to attack Fort Hood.  Neither of these two matched the DHS profile.

1 Jun 2009 – Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad (aka Carlos Leon Bledsoe) – Opens fire on a Little Rock Army Recruiting Station Killing Private William Long and wounding Private Quinton Ezeagwula.  The White House does not issue a response until 4 Jun 2009.  The response is only two sentences long and does not go into any details of the shooting.  A Purple Heart has never been awarded due to the Government failing to recognize this as nothing more than a criminal offense.  A bill introduced in May 2012 is attempting to get these two Soldiers their Purple Hearts.

Starting in October 2009 and continuing throughout his tenure, President Obama has been revealing war strategy via public outlets.  This seems to be a reckless policy which has placed military men and women in greater danger.

5 November 2009 – Fort Hood, Texas is rocked when Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan opened fire killing 13 before being shot and detained.  One of the victims was pregnant.  Hasan is also charged with 32 counts of attempted murder.  The initial response from President Obama was not more than an afterthought, waiting to address the situation three minutes into the speech after a shout-out.  The speech was teleprompted and not from any heart.  I watched the speech live and was amazed and appalled.  On 10 November 2009, the President was criticized for a lack of emotion during the memorial and it failed to acknowledge that a radical Islamic carried out the attack.  The act has been dubbed a criminal offense.  7 December 2011 it was revealed that the White House classified the shooting as work place violence and not an act of terrorism.  The White House classification denies the victims any rights to their rightful Purple Hearts.

Between November and December 2009 his delayed decision on whether or not to send reinforcements to Afghanistan, 114 military members lost their lives.

15 March 2010 – During disaster relief effort in Haiti, the Obama administration did not allow Soldiers to fly the American flag at their headquarters in light of every other country flying theirs.  The reason was as quoted – “We are not here as an occupation force, but as an international partner committed to supporting the government of Haiti on the road to recovery.” 

29 April 2010 – Army post, Fort Knox, Kentucky performs a mock emergency drill to react to an attack from a local Tea Party group.  This scenario was created from an intelligence security bulletin sent out on 23 April 2010 which identified threats as “Local Militia Groups/Anti-Government Protestors/TEA Party”.  To this day there has not been a single arrest of a Tea Party member at any Tea Party event throughout America.  The fact that they are running these scenarios with military personnel is disturbing.

22 December 2010 – President signs the DADT Repeal Act of 2010.  President made this into a huge political point even without taking opinions into mind from our fighting forces.  General public opinion did not and does not match with military fighting opinion.  Fast forward to 8 May 2012, North Carolina passes a state amendment defining marriage as only between and man and a woman.  On 9 May 2012, President Obama retaliated against the state of North Carolina by stating that he now supports gay marriage and once again politicized the military and revealed what he thought about the military by stating, “those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf.”  Last I checked the members of the military are fighting against all enemies both foreign and domestic and are fighting for the United States of America and its citizens.  We fight to defend the Constitution of the United States of America and we do not fight for a single figurehead ruler.

2 May 2011 – News of the death of Osama Bin Laden circulate throughout the news organizations.  A photo op of Obama’s team watching events becomes a picture of heroic proportions within the circles of Liberalism.  The very strategy itself is revealed and Obama and his team take full credit for what happened.  On 6 August 2011, a similar mission was taking place and because the enemy knew the strategy, insurgents shot down and killed 30 members of SEAL Team 6.  On 11 August 2012, the bodies of the individuals were returned to Dover AFB with instructions to reporters that no photos were to be taken due to privacy for the families.  One photo was taken though.  It was of President Obama saluting over the coffins of the fallen.  The photo was soon circulated, not by the press who understood the rules, but by the White House who took advantage of the situation.  27 April 2012, in a campaign ad for television, the Obama campaign publicized the killing as the President’s decision and questioned whether Mitt Romney would make the same choice.  On 30 April 2012, several former and current Navy SEALs question the President saying it was not his call and he did not organize the raid.  They also stated that they were extremely disappointed and concerned about the publicizing of Navy SEAL Team 6 which was supposed to be highly classified.

11 July 2011 – Newly appointed Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said the following to a gathering in Camp Victory, Baghdad (this is where I was in 2006-07) The reason you guys are here is because on 9/11 the United States got attacked. And 3,000 Americans — 3,000 not just Americans, 3,000 human beings, innocent human beings — got killed because of al-Qaeda. And we’ve been fighting as a result of that.”  These are the same words which the Bush administration was using before we went into Iraq and the Obama administration said was not true.  Since this speech Panetta has retreated, the DoD removed references of the speech from its transcripts, and there has been a cone of silence around the incident.

3 February 2012 – The news is reported that the President’s NDAA will cut Hazardous Duty pay for those Soldiers serving in the most dangerous areas of the world.  The change would turn the benefit from a monthly to a daily benefit for those putting their lives on the line.  If the rules were in place when I went to Baghdad, I would have seen over $100 dollars less in my pocket.  They are trying to save money on the backs of the ones who are putting their lives on the line daily.

28 February 2012 – It is reported that the President’s NDAA would cut extremely into the health care benefits for all military members while leaving unionized civilian defense workers benefits alone.  This change is to the extreme, forcing all military and retirees to pay more for health care, get less in services, and Veterans will be hit with “means testing”.  The plan actually calls for a 30% to 78% increase in premiums in the first year.  After that the increase is from 94% to 345% within 5 years.  According to a congressional assessment, a retired Army colonel with a family currently paying $460 a year for health care will be paying $2,048 instead.  Also Active Duty Soldiers will now have an increase in pharmaceutical co-payments and will have no incentive to use generic drugs.  All these changes are supposed to be enacted after the vote.  Is this perfect timing not to try and upset us?  The only problem is that I’ve already seen the affects of this already in Active Duty people I know.  Tri-care Remote is already acting to make health care as hard as possible for those Service Members not near a military installation.  They have case workers making decisions for health care which does nothing for the people who are serving this nation with great honor and dignity.  It’s a disgrace to see the way our men and women in arms are abused by this political system.

14 March 2012 – The Headquarters for the Lake County Democratic Party in Florida fly an image of the American flag with Obama’s image on it.  Besides breaking the law with the US Flag Code they also broke Florida law.  Several Veteran groups rallied to remove the flag and it was soon gone.  All sales of said flag have ceased and the flag has not been seen again.

17 May 2012 – In light of the fact that GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney has no military background, President Obama’s Campaign starts an effort to attract the vote from military families and Veterans.  Really?

28 May 2012 – For the first time in its history, the Vietnam Memorial was closed on Memorial Day for seven hours.  Veterans who served with and family members of those who died in Vietnam were denied access to the memorial so that the President could make a speech and take photos in front of the memorial.  One such picture showed Obama’s reflection on the memorial in almost a divine moment.  What was even more interesting, the speech was about courting the Veterans to vote for him (even if it wasn’t meant to be, it was a campaign speech at the expense of the fallen).  One thing he said has stuck – “As long as I’m president, we will make sure you and your loved ones will receive the benefits you’ve earned and the respect you deserve,” Obama said. “America will be there for you.”  More on this statement in a bit.

30 May 2012 – Radical Islamist Michael Dale McCright, pleads guilty to trying to run two Marine recruiters off the road in Seattle.  No comment as yet from the White House.

Now let’s get back to Obama’s Memorial Day quote.  He stated “you and your loved ones will receive the benefits you’ve earned”.  Let’s look into what he means by this.  Based on statistics kept by the Navy, 2011 was the smallest increase the military has seen in pay ever!  The overall pay increased a mere 1.4% which was down from 2010’s 3.4% increase.  2012 was the second lowest in history with a 1.6% increase. 

Military spending has gone awry in the last few years and is expected to nose dive if Obama gets his way for next year.  From 2010 to 2011 military spending only increased by 1.7%.  From 2011 to 2012 it increased by 1.5%.  Between 2012 to 2013, Obama wants to cut the military by 2%.  This will cost thousands of military members and their families jobs and benefits as mentioned above.

I will let each of you make your own decision.  Mine has been made up for some time now.  My wife says I take this issue too personal, but then since I’ve invested so much of my life to it, why shouldn’t I be.  I have a passion for my brothers and sisters in arms and want to see the military have a focus and a direction and that direction is not going into extinction.  Hope and change has not worked and going “forward” will not work either.  It’s time we get involved and take the time to read and understand what is really going on.


UPDATE: 2012 marks the third year in a row where President Obama does not comemorate D-Day!  My dad is a WWII, Korea, and Vietnam Veteran.  I am a Iraq Veteran.  Veterans and the most important dates in history should not be forgotten.

UPDATE 2: June 2012, SecDef Panetta says that the military will honor the diversity of it’s gay troops.  Stop this social experiment already.  This does NOTHING for the good our the fighting force.  To honor people on lifestyle they CHOOSE is not right.

UPDATE 3:  The social experiment continues as we are being forced to change our core values to accept the immoral behavior of others!  The DoD is forcing this down our throats. I will not change my beliefs nor my religion for the sake of accepting this behavior.  ROMANS 1:24-32 <-read it and see where I’m coming from.

UPDATE 4:  Due to the current forcing of PC down the our national security’s throats, the FBI c0ncludes PC is the main cause for the Ft Hood shooting?  How about we were attacked by a radical Islamic declaring Jihad?  Is it too non-PC to admit that?

UPDATE 5:  Admiral McRaven acts as mouth puppet for the administration (not hard to get those Navy Admirals to back the social experiments and become yes men) but he is right, the national security leaks (coming from the White House itself) will kill Americans!

UPDATE 6:  DoJ holds secret talks with ACLU to desecrate a Korean War memorial in Cali.  The courts have already abused their power in manipulating what is in the tribute, but to have the DoJ in bed with the ACLU is just more against Veterans.

UPDATE 7:  The Obama Administration is now proposing a cut in pay for all Reservists and Retirees.  For more information –

UPDATE 8:  First there’s Banghazi.  The senseless killing of our embassador and Navy Seals.  One thing that I have taken out of this is that there was full situational awareness on the ground.  Infact the WH, Pentagon, and CIA watched our Americans get killed in real live stream.  Sacrifice?

Also the day before election day marks the anniversary of the senseless terrorist attack at Ft Hood.  I am calling it for what it is and will not forget the heros who died in service of their country.  The WH and DA have ignored this date.  Guess a re-election is more important than fallen Americans?
