Exposed: What Obama Has Done To The US Marines Is Beyond Belief – ‘Unlike Previous…’

Published

on

Investigative reporters found some Marines are being asked to work 21 hours a day just to keep the aircraft operational. Because normal supply chains are limited, cannibalization of other plane parts has been reported. Marines have begun stripping old equipment from other aircraft in order to service new ones.

Fox News ran an exclusive report Thursday about the impact budget cuts over the past few years have had on the U.S. Marine Corps, forcing men and women in uniform to do more with less.

“Imagine taking a 1995 Cadillac and trying to make it a Ferrari,” Sgt. Argentry Uebelhoer said days before embarking on his third deployment. “You’re trying to make it faster, more efficient, but it’s still an old airframe.”

Replacement parts for some planes can take up to 18 months to obtain, Fox News reported, because production of new models stopped 15 years ago.

Many of the highly trained mechanics whose job it is to fix the backlog of aircraft have become frustrated. Some have reportedly started looking for jobs in the private sector.

Because of the aircraft shortage, there is less time for pilot training. The norm for aerial exercises 10 years ago was 25 to 30 hours per month. Now the average flight time is just four hours per month. A pilot who asked to remain anonymous told Fox News that Chinese and Russian pilots fly more training hours each month.

U.S. military spending has dropped from $691 billion in 2010 to $560 billion in 2015. These cuts occurred right after the planes were returning from long tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. In addition, there are 30,000 fewer Marines now than in 2010.

Military leadership has also grown increasingly frustrated with the cuts. Last week, Gen. Mark Milley testified to Congress, saying, “If one or more possible unforeseen contingencies happen, then the United States Army currently risks not having ready forces available to provide flexible options to our national leadership. And most importantly, we risk incurring significantly increased U.S. casualties.”

As the election year continues to unfold, national defense will be a hotly debated topic. Currently, the Obama administration has no plans for increased military spending.

WHOA! Look What Melania Just Did To Her Entire Flight Crew After What Happened To Her Personal Staff

Published

on

Melania Trump doesn’t have a personal staff as big as Michelle Obama’s was, which was an intentional decision she made to cut back on unnecessary spending. Operating with a team of professionals who each have an important purpose, our compassionate First Lady shows sincere gratitude for each person who helps her, recognizing that it’s a privilege. So when she saw how they were treated recently, Melania responded in a surprising way our of protection for the people who help her do her job.

Melania doesn’t speak often unless she has something meaningful or important to say. She saves her words for when they matter most, especially since the liberal media is waiting with baited breath for a chance to twist anything she says or does. Today she said something that won’t soon be forgotten, especially by her entire flight crew who her remarks were directed at.

While Melania is traveling around the globe on her first overseas trip as First Lady, she’s on Air Force One just about daily, going from one location to the next. It’s a lot of travel and flight time, which she’s become somewhat used to as she flies frequently while living in New York, but having First Lady duties in Washington, D.C. With this much time in the sky and need to rely on her flight crew she and her staff are dependent on, the team has gotten to know the personable First Lady and they aren’t just any flight crew.

Melania and her staff are transported by the US Army 1-214th Aviation Regiment who have always shown the First Lady and her staff the utmost respect in doing this important job. This is something that hasn’t gone unnoticed by Melania who likes others to know how much they are appreciated, rather than just taking advantage of it the opportunities afforded her like her predecessor seemed to do.

Even though she’s overseas right now, Melania hasn’t forgotten about her awesome Army men who she publicly thanked today on Twitter going into this Memorial Day weekend. Like her husband, our First Lady has a love and respect for our military.

“Thank you to the @usarmy 1-214th Aviation Regiment for getting me & my staff to our mtgs safely! ,” Melania Tweeted from her official Twitter account today.

She didn’t have to say a word and perhaps nobody would have expected her to, but the fact that she remembered them and made a point to thank them for their service to she and her staff, speaks volumes as to the incredible First Lady we have in the White House. The gesture wasn’t just well-received by the American public who appreciated her thoughtfulness to our military, other servicemen and women saw her social media message and responded with gratitude.

“Thank You for representing the USA and making our Armed Forces PROUD!! ,” one reader replied.

Inevitably, the liberals came out in the comments too, as they always do as soon as FLOTUS posts anything, since they are waiting for it. One took the opportunity of seeing the photo of Melania with the Army flight crew to ask about her husband’s service in an accusatory way, claiming he dodged the draft. A wise citizen responded to it, effectively putting this troll in their place.

“Not serving doesn’t mean you’re a draft dodger. He registered. Lots of guys did and got deferments. Some actually left the country,” the Twitter user wrote.

What’s truly remarkable is that Melania is an immigrant and has more respect for our armed forces and genuine love for our country than ungrateful degenerates who were born here and seem to hate it. Our First Lady is proof that immigrants who come to America the right way are proud citizens who have a deep appreciation for what makes America great, and that starts with our military.

It wasn’t often or ever that the Obamas showed this kind of gratitude for anyone who flew them around safely. In fact, our former president couldn’t even bring himself to salute soldiers standing outside Air Force One or Marine One to welcome him. We’ve come a long way in the White House in a short time, with the Trumps there now who truly love this country and respect its citizens.

Trump Drops Everything To Go To Hospital With Melania – Here’s Who Else Is There

Published

on

President Donald Trump has a lot on his plate and frequently turns his weekends into work days, as he tirelessly forges ahead to get America back on track. However, today, he dropped everything to go the hospital with Melania, and now we know who else was there for an incredibly tragic reason. The sudden visit came as a big surprise but what happened there was nothing short of incredible.

The Trumps are no strangers to hospitals recently, as Melania was just at one a few short weeks ago for the entire day visiting children undergoing cancer treatment. Her compassion was evident for these kids, brightening their day in her soft, under spoken way, despite the burdens she was in the midst of dealing with at the time from the hateful media who relentless attack her and can only find fault in her every move. Saturday’s trip to one particular hospital was for an entirely different reason and what was caught on camera is something that everyone in America needs to see.

The president has proved his pride in our military by honoring these heroes every chance he gets, along with giving them the power back to do their job and defeat our enemies. The fight doesn’t come without great sacrifice, which too often means the cost of life or limb. When soldiers are greatly wounded in war, they are treated at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

Today, the president and First Lady had the honor of visiting these important patients and presenting one with a Purple Heart. “During the visit, President Trump awarded Sergeant First Class Alvaro Barrientos a Purple Heart,” the Gateway Pundit reported. “Sergeant First Class Alvaro Barrientos was injured in Afghanistan recently.” Then, something incredible happened that we haven’t seen in years.

Trump didn’t have to spend his day in the hospital nor be the one to award Sergeant Barrientos with the Purple Heart. However, there was nothing more important than showing his respect and his appreciation for this amputee. “When I heard about this, I wanted to do this myself,” President Trump said.“Congratulations. Tremendous.”

The couple posed for several pictures with the war hero. There’s no better person to present this medal to a soldier than a Commander-in-Chief who genuinely cares. Had Barack Obama still been in office and made the time to arrive at Walter Reed, it would have been an insult to them for the man who stripped the military down to nothing to present it. Trump has built it back up even after Obama, “urged soldiers to question Trump’s authority, saying to ‘criticize our president’,” Breitbart reported.

As news of Trump’s visit broke, some criticized him for making his plans known in a Tweet before leaving the White House and heading to the hospital. While he announced it with great honor saying he was “looking forward to seeing our bravest and greatest Americans,” the liberal media said, “Most visits go unannounced.” However, they missed the point.

Too often, especially under Barack Obama, Americans lose sight of the sacrifice made on the battlefield for our freedom. The rights we enjoy here today are defended by brave men and women willing to put their life on the line, which liberals take gross advantage of. While these heroes are facing an enemy in a foreign land that’s far outside of an entitled leftist’s “safe space,” liberal idiots are back in the land of the free crying for handouts, stomping on our flag, and complaining about fairness.

Trump’s visit today should serve as a reminder of what patriotism, heroism, and being a true American really looks like. The military deserves any and all attention they can get and Trump announcing that he’s presenting this important award should be something commended, not criticized.

Can You Guess What This Maverick Navy Pilot Drew In The Sky That Everyone Was Shocked To See

Wow! This is Huge!

Published

on

And once again we have people who have nothing better to do with their lives making a mountain out of a molehill.

This time, several residents in Okanogan County took photos of an “artwork” done by a Navy Pilot and posted them on social media. One mother even went as far as calling the local news to complain and saying that she was upset she might have to explain to her young children what the drawings were. I don’t think you have much to worry about since your kids probably already know more than even you claim to know.

The FAA confirmed that some pilots at NAS Whidbey did some skywriting on that day. But an FAA official said there’s nothing they can do about this stunt because they “cannot police morality.” However, officials from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island admitted that one of their aircraft was used, and issued a statement to apologize. Claiming they just didn’t see it coming and added that the US Navy holds its aircrew to the highest standards and that they find this stunt absolutely unacceptable and of zero training value. They added that they are in the process of holding the crew accountable and that disciplinary steps will be taken as soon as they get to the bottom of this incident.

OMG, People, it’s time to lighten up. No crime no foul. If any mother has a hard time explaining this to their children it’s because they are failing as a parent. And it’s nothing worse than what the far left machine is teaching kids in the classroom about sex while they indoctrinate the new generation to be a bunch of brain dead left wing zombies that would make “Uncle Marx” beam with pride.

WND Reports:

PUBLIC SCHOOLS RUINING U.S. KIDS WITH ‘INDOCTRINATION’

Americans warned, ‘Get off of Facebook, turn off the TV, and educate yourself’

Public education in America today is almost the opposite of education, according to an education expert who calls the nation’s schooling “indoctrination.”

“This isn’t some kind of huge national accident that all these legions of Ph.D experts and all these legions of committees and the U.S. Department of Education – it’s not that they’re just incompetent fools and don’t know what they’re doing,” said international journalist and educator Alex Newman. “They want the system to be doing what it’s doing, and that is destroying real education.”

Real education, according to Newman, means developing knowledgeable, well-rounded Americans who can think critically, process information, make good decisions, support themselves and serve the needs of society.

In other words, real education produces productive members of a capitalist society.

“That’s what you do in a free market,” Newman said. “If you want to profit, you have to serve your fellow man. If you want to have a business, you have to make sure you’re selling a product that they’re willing to purchase at a price that they’re willing to purchase.

“So that’s what an education is, is to create an individual who can take care of themselves, who understands the Scripture, who understands history, who understands science, who understands, obviously, reading and writing and basic mathematics at the very least,” he said.

Newman made these comments during a recent appearance on “The Jesse Lee Peterson Radio Show.”

Jesse Lee Peterson, host of the show and a wildly popular WND columnist, already knew something was wrong with the American education system.

“One of the reasons I started my private school, BOND Leadership Academy, for boys and girls grades 1 through 12, was because I noticed that these boys and girls are not being educated – especially the boys. They’re coming out dumbed down rather than educated,” said Peterson, author of “Scam: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America.”

According to Newman, government schools are no longer teaching the components of a real education.

In Newman’s book “Crimes of the Educators,” co-authored with the late Samuel Blumenfeld, Newman condemned the “whole-word method” of teaching children to read. In this method, kids are taught to memorize words as if they were pictures, rather than sounding out the word based on the letters that form it. Newman calls it a “quack method” of teaching reading.

Newman also wrote in his book about how progressives have scrubbed the public schools of God and religion. He writes that they have rewritten American history textbooks to downplay patriotism and prepare children to be global citizens. They have confused children by focusing on mathematics to the exclusion of basic arithmetic, which people need to use in their daily lives, he says.

“Crimes of the Educators” reveals how the architects of America’s public school disaster implemented a plan to socialize the United States by knowingly and willingly dumbing down the population

 In the author’s estimation, it all adds up to indoctrination.

“We need to draw a clear, defining line between education, which enables people to know how to think, versus what the government is doing today, which is indoctrination, training people what to think rather than how to think and how to process information and how to have critical thinking ability,” Newman explained.

The public education system is too far gone to be saved, Newman argues, largely because progressive educators such as John Dewey designed it specifically to dumb down and indoctrinate children. Therefore, he says modern education reformers need to start over if they wish to save the system.

“If we’re going to have government-provided education, we really need to start from the very beginning, from the very foundation and build on a new foundation that’s based on proper reading, proper writing and real knowledge – not indoctrination,” he said. “And for that to happen, we’ve got to start from scratch and we’ve got to build from there, because the system, I think, is too far gone, it’s too corrupt to be salvaged.”

It’s possible for publicly educated children and adults to overcome the indoctrination, Newman asserted, but it’s very difficult.

“If you subject yourself to a government school or you subject your children to a government school, you’re automatically starting with a huge handicap because a government school is scientifically designed to dumb you down,” he said. “And it is possible to bypass that, but it takes very, very hard work.”

Those wishing to overcome the dumbing-down process need someone who can teach them to read properly, according to Newman. Once they can read well, they can acquire knowledge and truth independently and receive a real education.

“You’re not going to get the truth out of the government schools any more than you’re going to get the truth from the far-left media,” Newman warned.

He offered further advice for adults wishing to educate themselves: Read books.

“They hide all the secrets in the books,” he quipped. “Get books. Make sure you have a big library stocked with information on everything you need to know: history, economics, politics, culture, science – we all need to be well-rounded people, and if we’re going to educate others, we need to be educated ourselves.

“So there’s a lot of great sources out there, but I really recommend people just need to expand their libraries, get off of Facebook, turn off the TV, and educate yourself with books the old-fashioned way. I think there’s really no shortcut.”

Please share if you agree it’s time parents start worrying more about what the left wing teachers teach and less about a childish stunt a naval aviator pulls….
