American Patriot: Bill O’Reilly

Bill O’Reilly is helping veterans in ways many don’t know

Bill O'Reilly

A Patriot is a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion.”

The American Patriot Series acknowledges the activities of those individuals, celebrities, and/or groups who give their time, effort, and/or money to support our country’s active duty military personnel and veterans. Their actions identify them as a patriot and the purpose of this series is to recognize them as such.

Bill O’Reilly ( William James O’Reilly, Jr.) is most notably known as the host of The O’Reilly Factor, now in its 20th year. The Factor is currently the “#1 Cable TV News Show for 16 years – and counting!”

Along with his co-author, Martin Dugard, O’Reilly is also known as an author for his “Killing” series of books (in order: Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Jesus, Killing Patton, Killing Reagan, and the just-released, Killing The Rising Sun). He has also authored the children books for each of the Killing books and has been Executive Producer of the movies made from these books. 

But most importantly, O’Reilly has an online store where his books, premium memberships to The O’Reilly Factor, reproductions of our founding documents, and gear (shirts, ties, hats, pens, glasses, and coffee mugs) are sold. And from this endeavor, O’Reilly donates all of the proceeds from the store to 23 charities.

Ten of them are directly related to children and four are charities for active duty military personnel and veterans.

Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving medical treatment at nearby major military or VA medical centers. These homes are located throughout the U.S.

Operation Shoebox sends care packages to our military personnel overseas.

Troops Direct spends over 90% of their donations of medical equipment, supplies, food supplements, personal items, and other needed items they ship to our military service members stationed overseas.

But it is the Independence Fund for which O’Reilly is most likely known. He was one of the first celebrities to mention their all terrain wheelchairs, more widely known as the trackchair, on The O’Reilly Factor:

No longer must our Veterans be confined to the pavement! Fishing, hunting, going to the beach, even playing with their own children in their backyard are all now possible – sweet Independence!”

Because of his historical support, the Independence Fund has recognized Bill with a special commendation on their website:

The Independence Fund sends our sincere thanks to Bill O’Reilly for his tireless advocacy on behalf of The Fund and our nation’s wounded Veterans. His support has enabled us to provide over 20 million dollars in direct support to America’s Heroes.”

Bill O’Reilly has been called many things during his career but no one can dispute his support for our active duty military personnel, veterans, and their families.

Sir: you are truly an American Patriot! And we salute you!

Say What? The Bergdahl Saga Isn’t Over Yet? Yikes!

Chuck Yarling

Published

on

Last week, Judge Col. Jeffrey Nance convicted Sgt. Robert Bowdrie (“Bowe”) Bergdahl’ of two charges of one count of “desertion with intent to shirk important or hazardous duty” and one count of “misbehavior before the enemy by endangering the safety of a command, unit or place.”. For these two charges which Bergdahl could have received up to life in prison. However, Judge Nance gave him:

No jail time for his desertion, be dishonorably discharged from the military, his rank lowered to private (E-1), and pay a fine of $10,000.

Veterans freaked. But the saga isn’t over yet.

The New York Times is reporting Bergdahl’s sentence will be reviewed by Gen. Robert B. Abrams, who convened the court-martial and has the power to lessen the punishment.

According to the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ):

If the sentence is a dishonorable discharge, bad conduct discharge, dismissal (if you are an officer), confinement for at least a year, or death, your case will automatically be reviewed by a military court of appeal.

In this case, the appellate court is the Army Court of Criminal Appeals. The court has the power to reverse convictions that are either legally or factually insufficient, and to reduce sentences that they deem to be inappropriately severe.

Needless to say, this sentence doesn’t even approach a slap on the wrist, so any reduction will most likely not happen. Unless, that is, Bergdahl’s plan is to have the court overturn the sentence entirely. Based on the trial, that wil probably not happen either.

However, because Bergdahl’s sentence contains a dishonorable discharge, he may also appeal his sentence to the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.

So there you have it: review by Gen. Robert B. Abrams; automatic appeal to the Military Court of Appeal; and possible review by Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.

And most of us thought the Bergdahl saga was over. Stay tuned…

Traitor Bergdahl About To Receive a Major Award That Will Make Your Blood Boil – This Must Be Stopped

Published

on

Most Americans are still livid over the news of Obama’s little pet Bowe Bergdahl walking out of a courtroom last week a completely free man, after receiving zero punishment for joining the Taliban and subsequently getting 6 members of his unit killed. While we all wonder just what the hell is going on in our country where it’s now acceptable behavior in our military to abandon their posts and hook up with terrorists, Bowe Berghdal’s lawyer still isn’t quite done sticking it to Americans. The demand he’s now making on his client’s behalf is so outrageous it will make you want to punch through a freaking wall and call it a day.

Obama hugs it up in the Rose Garden with the Muslim Converts and parents of Bowe Bergdahl

Back in the good old days, we used to publicly execute traitors. Fast forward to today, and not only are these treasonous morons traded for GITMO terrorists and then free to go on with their lives, but they’re awarded freaking medals for their treasonous and disgusting behavior. You heard that right. If Berghdal’s lawyer gets his way, several shiny new medals will soon be swinging from Berghdal’s neck, replacing what should actually be there, like a newly-woven rope.

According to American Newshub:

After outrageously being allowed to walk free of his desertion charges, the lawyer for traitorous Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl now wants the Pentagon to award him with some of the service medals he would have been eligible for if he had served with honor.

Early this month the traitorous American soldier who escaped to join the Taliban but was held against his will for five years afterward was let off the hook by a military judge. Despite not being convicted of desertion or treason, Bergdahl was given a dishonorable discharge and allowed to walk free without jail time.

The judge’s decision was so outrageous that even a Democrat Congressperson was driven to slam the move.

Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D) was a supporter of Bernie Sanders during the 2016 Democrat primaries, but she was no supporter of Bergdahl’s soft treatment.

But now that Bergdahl has essentially been allowed to go without any meaningful punishment, his lawyer is brazenly demanding that Bergdahl be awarded military medals.

Not only does Bergdahl’s civilian lawyer, Eugene Fidell, think that the traitorous soldier should have his dishonorable discharge reversed, he also thinks Bergdahl should be awarded a POW medal.

“We have long felt he was entitled to the POW medal,” Fidell said, according to USA Today.

The Prisoner of War medal is given to any soldier who “was taken prisoner and held captive” while in military service.

Of course, Bergdahl deserted his post on his own. His being grabbed by the Taliban is incidental because the traitor had already abandoned his service before being “captured.”

Still, during his trial, his defense team even insisted that he should get the POW medal so that it wouldn’t look like the government was biased against him — a weak claim if there ever was one.

In January of last year his military defense team demanded he be awarded his medals, too.

Accodring to Military.com:

A military lawyer representing accused deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl called for the Army to award his client several medals, including the Purple Heart and the Prisoner of War medal, during a pre-trial hearing Tuesday.

“We believe this is a prejudice and casts a semblance of guilt,” Rosenblatt said, noting Bergdahl was wearing his dress Blue Army uniform, including a Combat Infantryman Badge and 10 overseas service bars. “We encourage the government to correct that.”

In addition to the Purple Heart and POW Medal, Rosenblatt told Army judge Col. Jeffrey R. Nance, Bergdahl should be awarded the Afghanistan Campaign Medal and the NATO medal during the hearing that largely focused on the defense’s ability to access classified material related to Bergdahl’s case.

If this treasonous POS actually gets a military medal for his “service,” I will publicly hold a bonfire and burn every last one of my military medals I received overseas as an act of defiance because these medals obviously mean nothing if traitors to America are awarded them.

What the hell is going on in our country? The only thing that belongs around Bowe Bergdahl’s neck is a freaking rope!

You Missed The 2017 Invictus Games? What A Shame!

Chuck Yarling

So what are the Invictus Games? “The games were
founded in 2014 by the United Kingdom’s Prince Harry, are based on the United States’ concept of the Warrior Games and are designed to use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation, and generate a wider understanding of, and respect for, those who serve their country and their loved ones.”

The 2017 Invictus Games were played from September 23-30, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This is the third event of its kind.

Prince Harry opened the year’s games with an address that included his hopes for the athletes and attendees: 

“In the days ahead, I know many of you will experience Invictus for the first time. I hope you are ready,” he continued. “I hope you are ready for some fierce competition. I hope you are ready to see the meaning of teamwork, the proof that anything is possible when we work together. I hope you are ready to see courage and determination that will inspire you to power through the challenges in your own life. I hope you are ready to see the role models in action that any parent would want their children to look up to. And I hope you’re ready to see lives changing in front of your eyes.”

During the 2017 games, over 500 athletes from 17 nations around the world played in 12 sports: archery, athletics, cycling, driving challende, gold, indoor rowing, powerlifting, sitting volleyball, swimming, wheelhair basketball, wheelchair rugby, and wheelchair tennis.

There were ninety men and women who were either active duty personnel or veterans representing four of our five military forces: Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marines.

Tony Kurta, performing the duties of undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, said,

“The 2017 Invictus Games embody the spirit of every member of the United States Armed Forces. They inspire us with their strength, resilience and personal courage. We are proud to recognize the athletes at the 2017 Invictus Games for their tremendous achievements, while we honor each and every wounded guardian who achieves victories every day through Department of Defense adaptive reconditioning programs.”

Amen to that!
