Has the U.S. Army gone bonkers?, Part 2

Chuck Yarling

Published

on

Over the last four years, news reports have revealed the U.S. Army is not in tune with the rest of the U.S. The following stories add to those listed in Part 1 all of which substantiate this statement and indicate that the Army has indeed gone bonkers.

4.  West Point Investigating Photo Of Black Cadets With Raised Fists

The Army Times printed an article on May 5, 2016, that showed a picture of a sixteen Black Cadets with their fists raised as they posed in front of a barracks located at U.S. Military Academy, known as West Point. The picture was part of their actions of “recreating “old corps” photos, or the black-and-white photos of graduates past.”

However, the raised fist has been in the news for months now as being associated with Black Lives Matter, “an international activist movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns against violence toward black people.“

Lt. Col. Christopher Kasker, West Point’s director of public affairs, released a statement via email saying, “We can confirm that the cadets in this photo are members of the U.S. Military Academy’s Class of 2016.”

John Burk, an Army veteran who served in the Iraq War, said in his blog, “This overt display of the black lives matter movement is not, in itself wrong, but to do so while in uniform is completely unprofessional and not in keeping with what the USMA stands for, and as well as violating the DOD directive 1344.10 which states:

“-A member of the Armed Forces on active duty may:
4.1.1.3. Join a partisan or nonpartisan political club and attend its meetings when NOT iN uniform, subject to the restrictions of subparagraph 4.1.2.4. (See DoD Instruction 1334.1 (Reference (c).)

“-A member of the Armed forces shall not:
-4.1.2.12. Display a partisan political sign, poster, banner, or similar device visible to the public at one’s residence on a military installation, even if that residence is part of a privatized housing development.”

Sue Fulton, a graduate of West Point and former captain, now serves as the first female West Point graduate to be the chairman of the academy’s Board of Visitors.

Fulton has admitted she knows some of the women personally. “I would not have re-tweeted the raised-fist photo because I am well aware that our culture views a black fist very differently from a white fist…Unfortunately, in their youth and exuberance, it appears they didn’t stop to think that it might have any political context, or any meaning other than their own feeling of triumph.”

And she criticized Burk: “I am sorry that someone with a blog chose to display this one photo out of context, and to call them racists.”

The question is: “Is it really out of context?” If the sole purpose of these photographs by the cadets were indeed to pose for an “Old Corps photo, a long-held tradition at the Academy”, then this particular photo would never have been taken in the first place.

Jeff Edwards, a Marine veteran and now blogger, said in his article entitled, These Officers and Leaders Will Regret This Picture 20 Years From Now, “Ladies, what if rather than a fist in the air you had a hand extended outwards saying come join me?” And he concluded with, “Are you an activist college student or a leader of men and women in uniform?  The mattering of lives depends on it and I pray that you choose wisely.  The older version of yourself may not treat the younger version so kindly othewise.”

It should be noted that as of May 11, 2016, no charges have been made against these sixteen graduating cadets, although “making such a highly charged political statement while in uniform is a clear violation of the United States Code of Military Justice, and they should have been brought up on charges.”

And Burk ended his comments with very appropriate words to the rest of us: “Are these the type of “leaders” you want moving down to the line and leading your sons and daughters, graduates with an agenda?”

Hooah!

5. Army forces ROTC cadets to wear high heels.

In April, 2014, Army ROTC cadets at Arizona State University participated in an optional “Walk A Mile in Her Shoes”. Unfortunately, it became manditory in 2015. The purpose of this exercise was to demonstrate their disapproval of “rape culture”. And this was no April Fools joke.

As one pundit stated charitably, it’s “freaking insane!”

To make matters worse, cadets knew that if they didn’t participate, their efficiency rating wound be dinged, thereby preventing them “from being selected to go on active duty rather than receiving a 90-day active duty for training billet and moved into the Guard or Reserve.”

In addition, the cadets had to purchase their “new shoes”. However, it’s against “Army Regulations to require soldiers to buy items of clothing for wear while on duty.” In other words, the whole thing should never happened in the first place since it violated army regs.

Go figure!

6. Documents Reveal US Army Indoctrinated Soldiers on Dangers of ‘White Privilege’.

Judicial Watch (JW) is a “conservative, non-partisan educational foundation, promotes transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law.”

On March 9, 2016, JW released a report revealing in April 2015, that “400 soldiers in the 67th Signal Battalion at Fort Gordon, Georgia, were subjected to a “white privilege” briefing, including a PowerPoint presentation instructing the attendees: “Our society attaches privilege to being white and male and heterosexual …”. In other words, they learned “it doesn’t matter what social class you come from.”

Yes, it seems that instead of being trained to hate our enemies, our soldiers were being taught to hate the different races with whom they serve!

In a news release, Tom Fitton, president of JW, said, “Outrageous — that is the only word to describe this type of raw racist indoctrination…the Obama administration undermines the morale of our military with morally repugnant ‘equal opportunity training’ that makes many soldiers feel unwelcome because they are the wrong sex, race, religion or aren’t part of a politically correct group.”

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee said in the August 2015 presidential debate,
“The purpose of the military is to kill people and break things. It’s not to transform the culture by trying out some ideas that some people think would make us a different country and more diverse.”

Most active duty military and veterans will wholeheartedly agree with the governor’s statement!

And, yes, perhaps the Army really is going bonkers. And that’s a shame!!!

Budweiser’s New NFL Ad Leaves Every Military Fam In America In Complete SHOCK With What It Shows

Published

on

As one of the NFL’s biggest sponsors, Budweiser let it be known this week that they aren’t backing down to many Americans’ demands that they pull their support from the sport that allows protests to continue. Now, they have come out with a new commercial that is leaving every Military family in the country in complete shock.

The beer company offered a public statement that didn’t condone the National Anthem kneelers but also didn’t discredit them. They spoke of support for our military members who have and are defending our freedom but left a lot to be desired in making a real statement through assertive action.

Yahoo Finance compiled the responses of sponsors to the protest, most of which carried the disappointing theme that they considered the actions of players to be freedom of speech. The official report from Anheuser-Busch reads:

“On Monday night, a spokesperson for Anheuser-Busch InBev sent Yahoo Finance this statement, which appears to fall into the play-it-safe, neutral category along with Under Armour and Ford:

“At Anheuser-Busch, we have a long heritage of supporting the institutions and values that have made America so strong.  That includes our armed forces and the national anthem as well as diversity, equality, and freedom of speech.  We proudly employ over 1,100 military veterans and we work every day to create an inclusive environment for all of our employees. Because only together can we achieve our dream of bringing people together for a better world.”

While their politically correct statement seems to be playing it really safe on the issue, their commercial sends a very clear message that not everyone is going to appreciate. Perhaps Anheuser-Busch realized the fine line they were walking with who their customers are. True Americans who bleed red, white, and blue and are boycotting the NFL are the ones who drink their beer, not those who support these anti-patriotic protests.

The company’s recent commercial represents this, bringing the attention back to where it belongs — on the sacrifice of those who fight to defend our flag that entitled sports stars are kneeling before.

When you reach into the cooler this weekend and pop open a cold one while spending time with those you love, Budweiser hopes you think of them and drink one of their beers while not watching football. With that plan in mind, they created a special commercial to commemorate our nation’s independence and many Americans were floored at what they saw.

It’s been a year of beer debacles a major brewing company like Heineken going down the misguided path behind liberal coffee giant Starbucks in mixing politics with their products. Budweiser also decided to mix the two but in a much different way that left their customer base in awe and ensured that they are the staple beverage for beer drinkers at cookouts across the country.

Right Wing News reports:

If this doesn’t make you bleed red, white, and blue for the rest of the year, I don’t  know what will. I mean, what’s more American than beer, Marines, Star Wars and helping veterans?

Star Wars star Adam Driver (better known as Kylo Ren) is a Marine veteran who has achieved his dream of becoming an actor. Now, he wants to give back, with the help of Budweiser’s “Folds Of Honor” program.

Budweiser created a docu-movie of sort in their moving ad that really tugs at the heartstrings of every country-loving patriot in the country. Driver is seen traveling across the country to meet up the real daughter of an actual wounded Army vet, John Williams, who had been severely injured during a training exercise. The hero’s daughter, Hayley Grace Williams, is currently studying to become a nurse and had written into the “Folds of Honor” program in hopes of getting a scholarship to help facilitate her dreams.

“Because of his injury, Williams was not able to go overseas and was medically discharged,” Right Wing News explains. “His daughter has been forced to work 40 hours a week to pay for her final year of school, which is going to cost $44,000. In her letter, Hayley explains that the weight she carries is so great that she may not be able to finish her final year of schooling.”

While Heineken preaches to red-blooded Americans about “open borders” on their bottles, Budweiser took the patriotic approach rather than using divisive political rhetoric to sell beer. The sales should speak for themselves in that Heineken lost a huge portion of their customer base and Budweiser reinstated they’re truly the “king of beers.”

Here is what the Heineken bottle reads:

Here’s To An Open World

To a world without borders or barriers. To the belief that there is more that unites us than divides us. To find common ground to raise a bottle with the person next to you. Because a stranger is just a friend that you haven’t had a cold Heineken with yet.

Open Your World.

While Heineken thinks that what unites people is open borders, Budweiser understands that true red, white, and blue patriotism is what America really needs right now. That means doing more for those who fought and sacrificed for this country, than those who cross the border illegally. There are homeless, hurting veterans that need our attention and help before refugees and illegal immigrants. If liberals really cared about coming together and unifying people, their concern would be for those who defended their right to complain about “open borders.”

While we don’t get paid to promote any beer brand at Freedom Daily, you can bet that we’ll be buying a brew with real American values and not one with an agenda to push, like Heineken. We hope that everyone has a happy and safe Independence Day, drinks responsibly, and supports a brand that backs America and our heroes who fought for this country.

Obama Suffers Complete Meltdown Over What Veterans Just Gave Trump On Live TV

Published

on

For the past 8 years, Obama made it no secret how much he hated our military. He hollowed out our military capabilities to pre-world war II capabilities, while making it virtually impossible for our soldiers to protect themselves on the battlefield with the outrageous changes he made to our military’s Rules of Engagement (ROE), resulting in the deaths of dozens of our warriors. To add insult to injury, Obama constantly treated our service members like crap, refusing to do simple things like return salutes to Marines assigned to his detail, where he reduced our Marines to his personal umbrella-holding servant boys. Obama also would go back on his campaign promise to “fix the VA,” where hundreds of our veterans would go on to die waiting for medical treatment from their war injuries.

With Trump in office, things have taken a drastic and wonderful turn for the better. President Trump’s love and appreciation for our military is constantly on full display with the genuinely nice way he treats any service member he comes into contact with. Whether it’s chasing down a Marine’s hat that’s blown off, taking time from his busy schedule to visit our wounded warriors, going to a fallen soldier’s funeral, or firing 800 corrupt VA officials who worked during the Obama Administration, Trump’s sincere care and compassion for Americans truly knows no bounds.

So not surprisingly, when President Trump had the opportunity to honor our veterans over Veteran’s Day, despite his busy 11-day Asia tour, he would drop everything to honor our Vietnam veterans with an incredible ceremony and a heartfelt speech. Trump took the stage to honor all of America’s veterans, where he was flanked by 7 elderly Vietnam Veterans. But one of the veterans did something completely unexpected after Trump’s remarks, that will probably have Hussein Obama completely furious.  

Standing with Vietnam veterans behind him, Trump said:

“Our veterans are a national treasure, and I thank them all for their service, sacrifice, and patriotism.”

“To each of you with me today, you are the heroes who fulfill your duty to our nation. And each of you, under the most difficult conditions, did what you had to do, and you did it well.”

Unlike Obama who made every event on planet earth about him, President Trump then turned the microphone over to the seven Vietnam heroes behind them, giving them the opportunity to say whatever was on their minds. The third veteran to speak, who was wearing a Navy SEAL veteran hat, could only get a few words out before choking up and turning to Trump saying:

“Mr. President, from my heart, thank you for your support of the military, and it’s an honor to be here as one of seven Vietnam veterans representing the 58,000 heroes that never made it home. Thank you so much,” the veteran said.

Immediately overcome with his appreciation and emotion for a Commander-in-Chief who genuinely cares, unlike our previous president, the veteran then hugged Trump and began weeping. The touching moment begins around 3:55:

Watch:

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’ve never seen any World War II or Vietnam Veteran ever hug Obama for anything he did for them. Obama had no issue stabbing our elderly veterans in the back, as we all remember the heartbreaking images of wheelchair-bound elderly veterans being turned away from visiting their World War II memorial after Obama decided to shut it down back in 2013 as part of his political ploy to make Republicans pay. Even the Park Police thought it was incredibly horrible what Obama did, and refused to follow Obama’s orders and not let the veterans into the memorial.

Here’s a recap of the disgusting way Obama treated our WWII veterans, via Stars and Stripes:

Wheelchair-bound elderly veterans pushed aside barricades to tour the World War II Memorial Tuesday morning, in defiance of the government shutdown which closed all of the memorials in the nation’s capital.

The four bus loads of veterans — visiting from Mississippi as part of a once-in-a-lifetime Honor Flight tour — ignored National Park Police instructions not to enter the site as lawmakers and tourists cheered them on.

“We didn’t come this far not to get in,” one veteran proclaimed.

The scene was both emotional and comical at once. After it was clear they had lost control of the situation, Park Police officials stood aside, telling press that they had “asked for guidance on how to respond” to the breach of security.

 As 80-something veterans slowly walked around the massive war memorial, Park Police stood quietly to the side, advising other tourists that the site was technically still closed. But they made no moves to stop the wishes of the war heroes.

The memorial was closed because of the government shutdown that started 11 hours earlier, after lawmakers failed to pass a temporary budget plan to keep nonessential federal programs operating. Republicans and Democrats have been stalled in budget fight for weeks, mostly over legislative add-ons dealing with the new healthcare law.

It’s wonderful to see our veterans finally being treated well by a Commander-in-Chief who doesn’t exist for the sake of furthering the Islamic agenda. You know Obama’s got to be pretty mad right now after seeing how much our veterans LOVE President Trump!

Amazing! Yes, A Woman Has Received The U.S. Medal Of Honor

The more you know…

Chuck Yarling

Published

on

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!
