Silence Was Deafening When Obama Failed To Honor Two Fallen Members Of Our Military

On August 05, 2014, Major General Harold J. Greene was killed by an Afghan army soldier. Greene was the most senior U.S. Officer killed in combat since Vietnam.

On Tuesday, May 3, 2016, U.S. Navy SEAL Charles Keating IV was killed while attempting to rescue a dozen U.S. military advisers from an attacking force of 100 ISIS fighters in Iraq.

What ties these deaths of these two members of our military forces was the slience by President Obama. In both cases, he made no public statement, leaving his press secretary to do so. With respect to Gen. Greene, Earnest said it was a painful reminder of the service and sacrifice that our men and women in uniform make every day for this country.”

With Keating, Earnest began his press conference discussing President Obama’s upcoming visit to Flint, Michigan. He said nothing about Keating’s death until asked by press officials in the audience. Former intelligence officer, Rick Francona, was so incensed by Earnest’s remarks, he wrote in his column, “Your canned remarks appeared to be an afterthought. One has to wonder if you would have mentioned it at all had you not been prodded by a reporter.”

For both of these heroes, no flags were flown at half mast, no comments were made by our president, nor did any member of Obama’s staff attend either funeral.

However, compare those actions with convicted criminal Freddie Gray. Obama sent Cabinet Secretary Broderick Johnson, chairman of Obama administration’s My Brother’s Keeper Task Force; Heather Foster, an adviser in the White House Office of Public Engagement; and Elias Alcantara from the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs” to Freddie Gray’s funeral. And three White House officials attended Michael Brown’s funeral. It should be remembered that Brown had just robbed a convenience story before his confrontation with Police Officer Darren Wilson.

Both Gray and Brown were black. Was race an issue? It is not possible to ascertain what Obama was thinking but it does make people wonder about his inaction.

However, former U.S. Special Operations Command boss, retired Adm. William McRaven, believes he knows the answer to this silence. As the officer who oversaw Operation Neptune Spear, the SEAL operation wherein Osama Bin Laden met his long overdue demise, saidOver the past decade I have seen a disturbing trend in how politicians abuse and denigrate military leadership, particularly the officer corps, to advance their political agendas.

There is no question these politicians take their lead from their Commander-In-Chief, President Obama.

However, there are dozens of stories reporting our president’s disdain for our military. You only need to type in “Obama versus the U.S. Military” into your favorite Internet search engine and you can see for yourself.

So, the silence from our president is truly deafening! We can only hope that our next president will make us forget this silent treatment of those who risk their lives to protect us from those who would harm us!

Trump Dropped Everything To Go To Hospital With Melania – Who They Ran Into Changed Their Lives

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.

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.
