The controversy over San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the national anthem shows no signs of abating. Thursday, the 49ers played the San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, and veterans were there in force to protest his lack of patriotism. It was the Chargers’ annual Salute to the Military game, and so many people wondered what Kaepernick would do. Would he still refuse to stand? Veterans were ready:
Chargers fan and Navy veteran J.D. McCallum said that Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the flag was a sign of disrespect, not just to the flag but for everything the military has fought for. “I want to support our troops, me and my fellow veterans,” he explained.
But despite the overwhelming negative reaction from the military community and the country at-large, Kaepernick still refused to stand for the National Anthem. In an attempt to placate angry football fans, he instead took a knee, so that he could continue his protest while also showing respect for the military. But that gesture wasn’t good enough. Fans booed him while he kneeled.
Meanwhile, every single Chargers player stood proudly for the anthem.
Kaepernick is continuing to claim that he is oppressed in the United States, despite the fact that he is a multi-millionaire football player who has taken advantage of opportunities that he would never be able to get anywhere else. He’s even taken to sporting an afro, so he can better play the part of a wanna-be 60s radical. And, disgustingly, his movement is growing. He’s now being joined by his 49ers teammate Eric Reid, along with Seattle Seahawks player Jeremy Lane, who have all joined Kaepernick in refusing to stand for the national anthem.
The interesting thing is that, like a typical liberal, Kaepernick is all show and absolutely no action. This protest almost certainly came about due to the influence of Kaepernick’s Black Lives Matter activist girlfriend, and he’s said that police brutality against minorities is one of the things he’s protesting. But what is he doing to solve the problem? San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman challenged Kaepernick to talk with her about the problems between police and the minority community, saying, “Let’s all talk and have that dialogue about words and images. They matter. As police officers we go out every single day to protect the rights of individuals and tonight we are going to go out and protect everyone’s rights, including his.” Of course, Kaepernick is unlikely to take her up on that offer, because he doesn’t actually want to solve the problem. He’s more than happy to create a nice little media storm and make a lot of noise, but he won’t contribute anything substantial to a potential solution. Like all liberals, he’s all talk and no action.

Amazing! Yes, A Woman Has Received The U.S. Medal Of Honor
The more you know…
Meet Dr. Mary Edwards Walker, a woman with many titles: surgeon, abolitionist, suffragist, prohibitionist, prisoner of war, and the only woman to have received the U.S. Medal of Honor.
Born on November 26, 1832, Mary Walker was raised in a home where “thinking outside of the box” wasn’t commonplace: free thinking, questioning regulations and restrictions on women. Needless to say, this was certainly revolutionary for the times. For example, she kept her name after her marriage to fellow student, Albert Miller.
She was highly interested in medicine and pored over her father’s medical texts on anatomy and physiology as well as other medical litereature. She graduated with honors from Syracuse Medical College in New York at the age of 23 in 1855.
She was in private practice until the Civil War broke out in 1861. She wanted to join the army as a surgeon but wasn’t allowed to because she was a woman. Because of her credentials, she didn’t want to be a nurse, either. So she volunteered as an unpaid surgeon for a number of military hospitals and battlefields for the Union Army. She was the first female surgeon to do so.
On April 10, 1864, Walker was captured by Confederate troops, and arrested as a spy, just after she finished helping a Confederate doctor perform an amputation. However, she was exchanged for a Confederate surgeon just four months later.
After the war, she was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Andrew Johnson even though she was a civilian. But the medal was rescinded in 1917. As with her nature, she wore the medal until she died two years later.
In 1977, President Jimmy Carter restored her medal posthumously because she had gone into enemy territory to care for the suffering vicitms, when no man had the courage to do so, for they feared being captured and imprisoned.
The Citation for Medal of Honor:
“Whereas it appears from official reports that Dr. Mary E. Walker, a graduate of medicine, “has rendered valuable service to the Government, and her efforts have been earnest and untiring in a variety of ways,” and that she was assigned to duty and served as an assistant surgeon in charge of female prisoners at Louisville, Ky., upon the recommendation of Major-Generals Sherman and Thomas, and faithfully served as contract surgeon in the service of the United States, and has devoted herself with much patriotic zeal to the sick and wounded soldiers, both in the field and hospitals, to the detriment of her own health, and has also endured hardships as a prisoner of war four months in a Southern prison while acting as contract surgeon; and Whereas by reason of her not being a commissioned officer in the military service, a brevet or honorary rank cannot, under existing laws, be conferred upon her; and Whereas in the opinion of the President an honorable recognition of her services and sufferings should be made.
“It is ordered, That a testimonial thereof shall be hereby made and given to the said Dr. Mary E. Walker, and that the usual medal of honor for meritorious services be given her.”
So thank you, Dr. Mary Edwards Walker, for representing all women in this list of 3,497 Medal of Honor recipients!

“Folds of Honor” – What They Do
Nothing short of amazing.
Folds of Honor is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization formed in 2007. Their mission:
“To provide educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members.”
And their motto:
“Honor Their Sacrifice. Educate Their Legacy.”
These scholarships are provided to families of military servicemen and women who have fallen or been disabled while on active duty in the United States Armed Forces.
The organization was founded by Major Dan Rooney after his return from his second tour in Iraq. While serving there, he was an Oklahoma Air National Guard F-16 fighter pilot. Like too many service members before him, he watched a casket of a fallen soldier being removed from his plane. Despite being asked by the pilot to remain seated, the disrespectful passengers began leaving anyway.
Ronney watched as Corporal Brock Bucklin’s remains were being escorted by his twin-brother to his wife, and young son. Wtih these two events, the somber one outside the plane and the insolent passengers inside the plane, Major Rooney basically had a life-altering experience resulting in him committing to spend his life changing the future of America’s grieving spouses and children.
The result was his founding Folds of Honor (FoH).
Two charity organizations have given very high approval ratings of Folds of Honor. Charity Navigator rated the charity with three out of four stars on October 1, 2017. And Guidestar gave them a “Platinum” rating, the highest of four levels.
Their financials prove that they certainly deserve these ratings. Charities Review Council:
Recommends at least 65% of a nonprofit’s three-year average annual expenses are used to directly support programming, with an ideal range of 70 to 90% (program expenses as percentage of total expenses).
Folds of Honor is proud to have a cumulative average ratio of 84.5% of annual expenses supporting our scholarship program.
In addition, you can review their yearly IRS 990 forms and Financial Audits from 2007 to 2016.
Their success is measured by their statistics:
• Over 12,000 scholarships have been awarded in all 50 states as well as Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
• 2,800 scholarships were awarded in 2016 alone.
We service members and veterans invite you to support Folds of Honor. This wonderful organization certainly deserves it.

Five Stories About The Constitution And Historic African-Americans That Social Justice Warriors Won’t Believe
The more you know
Everyone knows of the hullabaloo where Antifa violence, NFL kneelers, and social justice warriors are trying to change our culture. They want to remove from our history books anything about the Civil War. It seems they believe that the war was caused by “white privilege” lording over slaves. Of course, they fail to realize that the primary cause of the Civil War was economics – not slavery!
So here are five stories: three about amendments to our Constitution and two about African-Americans heroes who should be recognized for their actions. Certainly, social justice warriors (SJWs) and their type will refuse to believe them, but they are certainly true!
Republicans were responsible for three amendments to the Constitution with very little help from southern democrats.
The 13th Amendment to the Constitution abolished slavery. It was passed by the U.S. Senate on April 8, 1864,with a vote of 38-6 with 36 of which were Republicans. It was passed by the House on January 31, 1865, by a vote of 119 to 56; all 103 Republicans voted for it.
The 14th Amendment addressed citizenship rights and equal protection of the laws within the U.S. It was passed by the Senate on June 8, 1866, by a vote of a 33 to 11 vote, the majority of those passing votes were Republican. And on June 13, the House passed the bill by a vote of 138-36. Again, the majority of voters were Republicans.
The 15th Amendment guaranteed citizenship and equal protection under the laws regardless of “race, color, or previous condition of servitude.”, It was passed by the House on February 25, 1869, by a vote of 144 Republicans to 44 Democrats and by the Senate on the following day by a vote of 39 Republicans to 13 Democrats.
In summary, these three amendments were passed because of Republicans – not Democrats! And it was all made possible by the election of 1864, just prior to the start of the Civil War after Republicans took over both the House and the Senate of the U.S. Congress.
Now, in an anticipation next February’s Black History Month, here are two African-Americans who should never be forgotten.
Meet Oscar Dunn. Dunn was born a slave in 1826 but was eventually emancipated. He became a Freemason and got involved in local politics New Orleans, Lousiana. Eventually, Dunn because the nation’s first African-American lieutenant governor who served in Louisiana from 1868 until his death on November 22, 1871. Very few people know about this bit of history.
And finally, meet Army Sgt. William H. Carney of the Union Army. During the attack on Fort Wagner by Company C, 54th Massachusetts Colored Infantry Regiment, a color guard was fatally struck by a bullet. As he was falling to the ground taking the flag with him, Sgt. Marshall grabbed it and continued the charge to the fort. After arriving, he stuck the flag into the ground and held onto even after being shot twice.
On May 23, 1900, Sgt. Carney was awarded the Medal of Honor, our nation’s highest award for valor. He is the first African-American to receive this award.
There you have it. What about you SJWs. Can you handle the truth?
