A President with Compassion

What a difference a year makes. The past eight years, military families have been used as props by a president who once famously remarked that soldiers made “good photo ops.” His appearances to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns betrayed his contempt for the people he was there to honor. He would spit out empty, hollow, meaningless words some thirty-something kid had written for him, and then retreat to his beloved golf course, something that was really important to him.

What a relief it must have been for the Gold Star families who came to Arlington yesterday to be consoled by a man who truly respects the sacrifice they and their loved ones have made to keep us free.

‘They died in war so that we could live in peace’: Solemn Trump gives Memorial Day address at Arlington National Cemetery as he lays wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
President Trump delivered his first Memorial Day address on Monday
He placed a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery
He hailed ‘Gold Star’ families and mentioned service members who gave their lives
He called on Americans to remember them ‘today, and for the next one thousand years’
Among those he mentioned was the late son of Homeland Security Secretary Gen. John Kelly
He also mentioned a fallen Army specialist and a Green Beret major who risked his life for others
‘Here at this hallowed shrine we honor the noblest among us – the men and the women who paid the ultimate price for victory and for freedom,’ Trump told a crowd of families, military personnel, and dignitaries at Arlington on Monday in his first Memorial Day speech as president.

‘We pay tribute to those brave souls who raced into gunfire, roared into battle and ran into hell to face down evil. They made their sacrifice not for fame or for money or even for glory, but for country,’ Trump said.

‘They died in war, so that we could live in peace,’ he added.

Trump Visits With Moms Of Fallen Soldiers At Arlington

On Memorial Day, Leftist Site Smears Marines As Having ‘Toxic Masculinity Problem’

Left-wing website Vox attacked the Marine Corps for its “toxic masculinity problem” on Memorial Day, the national holiday dedicated to honoring the American men and women who died serving their country in the armed forces.

The liberal website, a personal favorite of Barack Obama with a reputation for butchering simple facts, claimed the Marine Corps has a “well-earned reputation for being a fraternity that often marginalizes or mistreats female troops.”

The author, Vox staff writer Alex Ward, does not appear to be a military veteran, although his current Twitter profile picture does show him drinking a very masculine-looking glass of lemon water.

The liberal writer claimed that the Corps’ recent nude photo sharing scandal is proof that Marines have a “toxic masculinity problem.” Daily Caller News Foundation editor Geoffrey Ingersoll, a Marine Corps veteran, previously wrote a piece explaining why he finds that line of reasoning to be worthless. In Ingersoll’s words: “the most ‘toxic’ ​​thing about ‘​masculinity’ in the Corps is the kind of metal used to kill radical Islamic terrorists.”

“Jim Mattis, current secretary of defense and the most revered Marine in modern history, once told me he didn’t mind killing the ‘kind of scum’ that won’t allow ‘young girls to read,’” Ingersoll noted.

    Melania Trump’s ‘revenge’ on designers who won’t dress her

    The list of designers who said they wouldn’t dress Melania is long, led by Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen, Christian Siriano and Sophie Theallet.

    But Melania has managed to look smashing in dozens of different ensembles, from her white Ralph Lauren jumpsuit on election night to the D&G 3-D floral coat she wore in Sicily on Friday.

    Defending the former model against critics who harped on the garment’s $51,500 cost, the Washington Post’s Robin Givhan opined, “Frankly, the floral coat is beautiful.”

    Texas State Rep. Claims Death Threats, Assault from Fellow House Members

    In a post on Rinaldi’s official Facebook page, the representative stated Representative Poncho Nevarez (D-Eagle Pass) threatened his life. He claimed the threat occurred after he threatened to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers about protesters in the House Gallery holding signs saying “I am illegal and here to stay.” Texas Department of Public Safety troopers removed the protesters from the gallery after they became disruptive and held up signs protesting the state’s new sanctuary city law. Rinaldi claimed he called ICE after “Several Democrats encouraged the protesters to disobey law enforcement.”

    Rinaldi also claimed to have been assaulted by Rep. Ramon Romero (D-Fort Worth) after he told Democrats he called ICE. He stated several of his colleagues heard the threats and witnessed the assault.

    Ivy League Illegal Immigrants Demand Free Health Care, Required Sensitivity Training For Faculty

    A group of illegal immigrants at Columbia University is demanding that school officials give them free health care. The illegal immigrants also want the Ivy League school to institute compulsory “sensitivity training” for professors and administrators.

    The illegal immigrant group, called Undocumented Students Initiative (UndoCU for short), presented its list of 13 demands on Facebook last week.

    Among its 13 demands, the group calls for “full reimbursement” of health insurance fees for students who are illegal immigrants. Currently, Columbia only reimburses illegal immigrant students for “portions of these fees,” the document says.
    A single year of tuition, fees and room and board at Columbia costs $68,300. However, students whose families have total incomes of less than $60,000 typically attend the Ivy League bastion for free — with zero loans for parents or students.

    The illegal immigrants at Columbia say they are unsatisfied with the school’s generous financial aid.

    Students Furious Over Release Of Video Showing Their Temper Tantrum At Evergreen State College

    A new video has surfaced of students this past week at Evergreen State College yelling and ranting about everything from “racist white teachers” and “white-ass administrators” to “black power!” during a so-called “meeting” with President George Bridges and other college administrators.

    Apparently, the activists are not pleased that this recording made its way to the Internet at large.

    Maxine Waters Gets Confronted By Constituent and Goes Ballistic: ‘You Can’t Impeach a Woman of Congress!’

    Constituent: “Well I just want to talk about your representation in Washington and our President as well.

    Waters: “I can’t stand him! He’s the most horrible man I’ve ever seen in my life!”

    Constituent: “I love my President.”

    Waters: “I’m glad you do! Your President is a dishonorable, lying man. He mocked a journalist. I’ve never seen a grown man do that! He talked about grabbing women by the private parts. He’s lies everyday. He’s in bed with Putin and the Russians about oil! And everybody around him are allies with the Kremlin and with the Oligarchs of Russia. They’re gonna take us down!”

    At this point the constituent brought up former President Bill Clinton because of his sexual deviancy and Maxine Waters brushed it off. Then Maxine Waters said she’s going to work everyday until she gets President Trump impeached.

    At this point the constituent said that she’s going to work hard everyday to make sure that President Trump isn’t impeached, but that Maxine Waters gets impeached instead.

    Maxine Waters went ballistic and screamed, “You cannot impeach a woman of Congress!”
    Maxine Waters said you cannot impeach a woman of ‘Congress’, not ‘Color’.

    Former NH Gov. Calls Out CNN, ‘How Much Crow Are You Going To Eat?’

    Camerota said that Sununu should be gravely concerned if there was any collusion between the Trump administration and Russian government officials.

    “I don’t see any evidence of collusion, do you?” asked Sununu. He followed up by saying that the lack of evidence should end the media’s reporting on the subject.

    Sununu also believes that anything that would have been found against Trump or his staff, would have already been uncovered.
    Camerota came back and said that the governor’s point was unfair and that the real investigation was just beginning.

    To which the governor replied frankly, “How much crow are you going to eat?”
