From Truth and Action
Veterans are being arrested by Secret Service for making anti-Obama Facebook posts, sometimes the very next day after creating a post – a practice which has been going on for quite some time.
All the while, our police force is being militarized at an alarming rate, with veterans being cited as one reason why. This is revealed in a statement made last month by Sgt. Dan Downing of the Morgan County, Ind. Sheriff’s Department, he stated “The weaponry is totally different now that it was in the beginning of my career, plus, you have a lot of people who are coming out of the military that have the ability and knowledge to build IEDs and to defeat law enforcement techniques.”
DHS has specific programs to silence veterans, such as Operation Vigilant Eagle, which was started in 2009. See more on this program below.
We’ve seen the Washington Times report on a memo detailing Obama’s plan to use the military against citizens. Of course strategically it makes sense that in any such war, the first targets would be those who can defeat local law enforcement, organize others into field-ready teams, and train the other patriots in the finer points of combat: our veterans.
In the four years since the start of Operation Vigilant Eagle, the government has steadily ramped up its campaign to “silence” dissidents, especially those with military backgrounds. Coupled with the DHS’ dual reports on Rightwing and Leftwing “Extremism,” which broadly define extremists as individuals and groups “that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely,” these tactics have boded ill for anyone seen as opposing the government.
One particularly troubling mental health label being applied to veterans and others who challenge the status quo is “oppositional defiance disorder” (ODD). As journalist Anthony Martin explains, an ODD diagnosis
“denotes that the person exhibits ‘symptoms’ such as the questioning of authority, the refusal to follow directions, stubbornness, the unwillingness to go along with the crowd, and the practice of disobeying or ignoring orders. Persons may also receive such a label if they are considered free thinkers, nonconformists, or individuals who are suspicious of large, centralized government… At one time the accepted protocol among mental health professionals was to reserve the diagnosis of oppositional defiance disorder for children or adolescents who exhibited uncontrollable defiance toward their parents and teachers.”
The case of 26-year-old decorated Marine Brandon Raub—who was targeted because of his Facebook posts, interrogated by government agents about his views on government corruption, arrested with no warning, labeled mentally ill for subscribing to so-called “conspiratorial” views about the government, detained against his will in a psych ward for standing by his views, and isolated from his family, friends and attorneys—is a prime example of the government’s war on veterans.
Raub’s case exposes the seedy underbelly of a governmental system that is targeting Americans—especially military veterans—for expressing their discontent over America’s rapid transition to a police state.

As Military Hero Sang The National Anthem Fans Immediately Watched The Disgusting Display On The Giants Sideline
As the boycott of the National Football League picks up steam, the spotlight on the players who are protesting the National Anthem keeps getting brighter. Even though their protest is on the verge of bankrupting the NFL, the league has decided that it won’t put a stop to their disrespect, that this is the one area where the players will have free reign.
Despite what is being said by the players (that the protest is meant as no disrespect toward the military or those who have served in the past) it’s hard not to see this as a slap in the face to everything patriotic. The entire premise of the protest is to draw attention to what they’re calling a broken system. They’re saying that the country is, as a whole, racist and that police are targeting the black community.
Since most of their former fans don’t agree, or at least don’t appreciate the protest, everyone at the NFL’s jobs hangs in the balance. What the NFL needs right now is some good press, but with players like New York Giants Olivier Vernon around, they’re not about to get it. Vernon, like many other players, insists that he means no disrespect to the military, but his actions at a game on Thanksgiving would say otherwise. The defensive end knelt while the anthem was being sung by a military hero just before the Giants game against the Washington Redskins, and people aren’t happy about it.
This shouldn’t come as any great surprise though since Vernon recently told Newsday that he planned to keep kneeling until he feels that his cause has been made right. No word on what that will look like, or it’s ETA, but until then, Vernon will be kneeling:
“Vernon is the only Giants player who continues to protest during the national anthem, and he plans to do so for the foreseeable future.
Still hoping to raise awareness about social injustice and racial inequality in America, the defensive end will not relent in the face of criticism that continues to come his way from fans who believe he is disrespecting the military by not standing for the anthem.
‘What it would take for me to stand is if people can understand what the whole message is behind it,’ Vernon told Newsday. ‘That would actually help a whole lot, but everybody doesn’t see things that way and tries to distort what the message was from the beginning, which is basically social injustice on African-Americans and police brutality.’
Vernon understands that not everyone respects his decision to take a knee, but he remains convinced that the best way to draw attention to the issues he’s most concerned about is to continue his form of protest.
Would there ever come a time that he would stand for the anthem?
‘Unless we can work something out and find the solution and try to address what the real issue is,’ he said, ‘I’ll continue to take a knee. I really don’t care what people outside have to say. I just believe in what’s right and what’s wrong, and I’m going to show support for what I believe in.’ Vernon said he continues to be criticized for not standing but that he tries to ignore most of it.
‘I get [criticism] all the time,’ he said. ‘If it was anything that actually bothered me, I would care. There’s stuff that some people say that comes out of their mouth that is just ignorant and uneducated, so I just keep it moving and I don’t really address anything anybody has to say. If they can’t come at me on something intellectual, then I don’t have a response for you.’
He also isn’t concerned by the recent television ratings decline, at least some of which has been attributed to fans being turned off by the anthem protests.
‘At the end of the day, there’s a First Amendment right as an American citizen,’ Vernon said. ‘You have a right to protest peacefully. Protests aren’t supposed to be comfortable. Some people aren’t going to understand.’”
At the end of the day, he shows up for work and puts on a uniform just like millions of other people. And just like the rest of us, he has to do what his boss says, or he’ll lose his job. If his boss says that it’s ok to kneel on the job, then he can do it, but if his boss says he has to stand while working, then he’d better stand. And if that company goes out of business because it’s employees have made themselves so unpleasant, and the owner refused to ask them to stop being unpleasant or fire them when they didn’t, then both he, and the owner will be out of work.
None of that has anything to do with the constitution; it has to do with how a free market works in a free country, like the one we live in, and the one that our military veterans have fought and died for. Call me old-fashioned, but I think that deserves enough respect to stand for a few moments, once per game
Share if you will always stand for the anthem!
BREAKING: Military On HIGH ALERT After Warship Spotted Off California Coast, Here’s Who’s In It
Ever since President Trump launched 59 Tomahawk missiles at Syria, tensions have been on the rise between the United States, North Korea, and Russia. Now one of these countries appears to be planning an attack on our soil, after a national security alert was sparked on Tuesday morning.
The Daily Mail reports that military personnel are now on high alert after multiple anti-submarine military crafts were spotted idling off the coast of California. Top officials are extremely concerned that these foreign submarines belong to the Russians or North Koreans.
Three low-lying military aircraft were seen using flight-tracking software, even though they are not in an area that is normally under surveillance, Truth Monitor reported.
“What America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines,” Russia said in a joint statement with Iran. “From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well.”
This comes at a time when North Korea is bowing up against the United States, condemning President Trump for deploying warships to waters off the Korean Peninsula.
Infowars reported multiple aircraft were seen surveying the area:
Among aircraft seen were the Navy EP-3E Aries II, which is used for electronic surveillance, a Navy P-3C Orion, used for submarine spotting, and a Boeing P-8 Poseidon used for anti-submarine warfare, InfoWars reported.
The military vessels were allegedly seen spanning the coastal waters from Los Angeles to the San Diego/Tijuana border near Mexico.
The website stated that a Royal Canadian CP-140 Orion, which is also known for its capability to spot submarines, entered the area at one point.
“This goes to prove that the U.S. reckless moves for invading the DPRK have reached a serious phase,” said a spokesman for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) foreign ministry. “The DPRK is ready to react to any mode of war desired by the U.S.”
This is extremely chilling. Is truly America ready for World War III? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

This Is The Video Of The Maverick Navy Pilot Drawing a Penis In Sky – He Said It Was A Hard Task
We now have a video of the Navy Pilot drawing a penis in the sky!
The FAA confirmed that some pilots at NAS Whidbey did some skywriting in poor taste last week. 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.
Last week when this happened several residents in Okanogan County took photos of an “artwork” done by a Navy Pilot and posted them on social media. One mother of two 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 doubt you have much to worry about since your kids probably already know more than even you claim to know.
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” and any “Bernie Bro” beam with pride.
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.”
