Just Damn

The posting function wouldn’t load, so I posted some things under the posts by CtH and Bluebird. Please take the time to check them out.

There is a link about the former organizer-in-chief advising Americans to not feel so patriotic on the 4th holiday. Spoken like a true America-hating Muslim jerked. We suffered 8 long years listening to him run down the nation so many sacrificed everything for. Patriots set things right last November and the socialists have gone insane since then.

With all the chaos in the world today — Putin messing with Syria, Europe suffering bomb and vehicle attacks, and yesterday, North Korea launched an ICBM with the range to reach Alaska — I thank the Almighty that we have a man of strength and determination to carry the load of keeping us safe.

US-Backed Forces Breach Center Of ISIS ‘Capital’ In Syria

THE FORCES FIGHTING ISIS ARE GLAD THEY KNOW WHICH SIDE THIS AMERICAN PRESIDENT IS ON

The battle for Raqqa began in June when the Kurdish-led SDF assaulted the city, following a campaign to secure the surrounding countryside. U.S.-backed fighters completely surrounded Raqqa Sunday, after crossing the Euphrates River on the southern edge of the city.

Memorial Day Remembrances

A lot of people today will be wishing each other “Happy Memorial Day.” The purpose of the day is not to be happy. It is for reflection and gratitude for those who gave all they had so we can enjoy all we have. Somewhere down the line that meaning became buried in cookouts and used car sales. So few of us take the time to visit the grave of a loved one who was a veteran or consider how selfless these amazing people were.


Allison Jaslow heard it more than once as the long holiday weekend approached — a cheerful “Happy Memorial Day!” from oblivious well-wishers.

The former Army captain and Iraq War veteran had a ready reply, telling them, matter-of-factly, that she considered it a work weekend. Jaslow will be at Arlington National Cemetery on Monday to take part in the annual wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. She’ll then visit Section 60, the final resting place of many service members who died in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“You can see it in people’s faces that they’re a little horrified that they forget this is what the day’s about,” said Jaslow, 34, who wears a bracelet bearing the name of a fallen comrade. “Culturally, we’ve kind of lost sight of what the day’s supposed to mean.”

While millions of Americans celebrate the long Memorial Day weekend as the unofficial start of summer — think beaches and backyard barbecues, mattress sales and sporting events — some veterans and loved ones of fallen military members wish the holiday that honors more than 1 million people who died serving their country would command more respect.

“There are a lot of things working against this particular holiday,” said Brian Duffy, commander in chief of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

“It hurts,” Duffy said. For combat veterans and Gold Star families especially, “it hurts that, as a society, we don’t truly understand and appreciate what the true meaning of Memorial Day is.”

Memorial Day in a Divided Nation

It is important to honor our wartime dead. But Memorial Day has a powerful meaning that we have forgotten. It was the holiday that reunited our country after the Civil War. It began when Americans, from the North and the South, entered the cold gray stone fields of the dead, and decorated the graves of the fallen from the Grand Army of the Republic and the Confederacy with freshly cut flowers.

They followed no presidential order. They acted under no regulation. Instead the mothers and wives of men who would return home no more brought flowers to the graves of their fallen sons and husbands, and to the resting places of the young American men who might have slain them, who had been the enemy, but who still deserved honor and respect.

Those women, of the North and the South, brought America together.

Today a new breed of leftists gleefully tears down Confederate memorials. And it will not end with flags and statues. They will not be satisfied until the cemeteries that were once decorated have been desecrated. It is ominously fitting that the event which marked the end of one civil war now arrives to foreshadow the beginning of another war between brothers

Like the American Revolution, the aftermath of the Civil War was indeed a unique achievement. It is now vanishing before our eyes. And Memorial Day has become a sad reminder of its diminution.

CONSIDER, IF YOU WILL, OUR LAST TWO SECRETARIES OF STATE: ONE WAS A GREEDY, POWER-OBSESSED SOULLESS CREATURE WHO IS COMPLETELY CORRUPT TO THE CORE. THE OTHER MADE A COMPLETE SHAM OF THE WAR IN VIETNAM “BECAUSE IT WOULD LOOK GOOD ON HIS POLITICAL RESUME.” HE THEN CAME BACK AND COMMITTED ACTS OF TREASON TO BETRAY THOSE WHO FOUGHT BRAVELY, THINKING OF NOTHING BUT HIS OWN PERSONAL AGGRANDIZEMENT.

NOW COMES A REAL COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF WHO IS WORTHY OF THOSE WHO SERVE.
HIS SECRETARY OF STATE JOINED THE THOUSANDS OF BIKE-RIDING PATRIOTS WHO ROARED THROUGH WASHINGTON KNOWN AS ‘ROLLING THUNDER.’

Trump Recognizes Those Who Gave All On Memorial Day, Will Be At Arlington

Tribute for Memorial Day (Impossible Dream)

STAFF SERGEANT RECKLESS WAS AN AMAZING ANIMAL
This is the story of Sgt. Reckless – a Mongolian mare purchased by a Marine Corps lieutenant for $250 during the Korean War.

One of Reckless’ finest hours came during the Battle of Outpost Vegas in March of 1953. During this five-day battle, 28 tons of bombs and hundreds of the largest shells turned the crest of Vegas into a smoking, death-pocked rubble. And Reckless was in the middle of all of it.

On one day alone she made 51 trips from the Ammunition Supply Point to the firing sites, 95% of the time by herself. She carried almost five tons, walked over 35 miles through open rice paddies and up steep mountains with enemy fire coming in at the rate of 500 rounds per minute. And as she so often did, she would carry wounded Marines down the mountain to safety, unload them, get reloaded with ammo, and off she would go back up to the guns. She also provided a shield for several Marines who were trapped trying to make their way up to the front line. Wounded twice, she didn’t let that stop or slow her down.

THIS NOW STANDS AT CAMP PENDLETON:
Sgt Reckless Memorial Unveiled

Pioneer Times at the Bunkhouse

Water heater stopped working a couple days ago. Had to wait until today to call the landlord. Having DW call, because I might say the wrong thing and get us evicted from Casa Pistol. The driveway didn’t get shoveled after the last snow, so SS went out and shoveled by hand yesterday. We’re heating water on the stove to wash with, so we don’t go near anybody who isn’t family. All in all, a wonderful day. Today eldest is coming with her family. She had a houseful yesterday so we’re getting together today, when we can spend more time together.
In other news, Christmas was better for millions of Christians than it has been for years. What makes the mood brighter is that soon we’ll be rid of the hateful creature that’s been ruining the country for the last eight years.

Free Of ISIS, Christians In Qaraqosh And Bartella, Iraq Are Finally Able To Celebrate Christmas

The Iraqi Christian town of Bartella was liberated in October by Iraqi forces after two years of ISIS control. After ISIS took over the town, its residents were forced to flee to camps, and various Christian religious symbols at their church were destroyed. Shortly after the town was finally freed, a video of residents making a cross for their church and ringing the church bells for the first time in years went viral.

THE FAKE NEWS DOESN’T STOP, EVEN ON CHRISTMAS
Dem ‘Fake News’ Even On Christmas: RNC “Refers To Trump As ‘King’, Compares To Jesus”
Matt McDermott is a Democrat pollster and his own words pusher of ‘propaganda’. I think this qualifies:
What Matt McDermott apparently doesn’t understand is that Christians say this each year, welcoming the new King, Jesus. What it reveals is not that RNC is trying to pitch Trump as King, but that McDermott and other Democrats don’t understand this simple concept.
The response to the statement was swift. Jonathan Chait, a liberal writer for New York magazine, said, “The distinction between a president and a king is not trivial.” Kyle Griffin, a producer for MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” tweeted, “No joke—This line is actually in the RNC’s Christmas message.” And Politico reporter Glenn Thrush quoted the statement and wrote “#KEOTUS,” meaning “King-elect of the United States.”


The Trumps Celebrate Christmas Services at Church Where They Married
The Trumps received communion at the service and returned back to their beachside resort around 12:30 AM., reported the New York Post.
THE LEFT MADE SUCH A HUGE DEAL OUT OF CLAIMING OBAMA WAS A CHRISTIAN. DID HE ATTEND CHURCH EVEN ONCE IN 8 YEARS?
IT WOULD NOT SURPRISE ME IF HE PRAYED 5 TIMES A DAY WITH HIS HEAD ON THE FLOOR AND HIS ASS IN THE AIR….EXCEPT WHEN HE WAS GOLFING. IT WOULD HAVE MADE PUTTING DIFFICULT.

Christmas Day Blizzard Blast Could Put End To Anti-DAPL Campsites
The National Weather Service reported Saturday that a massive blizzard is expected to dump more than a foot of snow on the protester’s encampment. The storm could bring with it 45 to 55 mph winds throughout Monday.
THINK THESE MORONS MIGHT GET A CLUE IT’S TIME TO MOVE ON?

43 shot, 11 fatally, in Christmas weekend shootings in Chicago
Eleven men were killed and at least 32 others have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday evening, according to Chicago Police.

US Should Not Only Defund UN But Withdraw From It
Let’s take our $3 billion and go.
The United States pays 22% of the total UN budget. What we get for our $3 billion a year is a corrupt organization whose dysfunctional and hostile agencies are united in opposing us around the world.
The United Nations does only two things consistently and effectively: waste money and bash Israel. Sometimes it manages to do both at the same time.
No wonder the UN Security Council just condemned them. Who wouldn’t rightfully be upset that Jews living in Jerusalem somehow causes poor Mohammed to batter his wife?

Jonah Goldberg: Obama Going Out the Door ‘Flipping The Middle Finger’ At Israel
He points out that this is where Obama’s heart has been all along, “Screwing Israel”

Supporter Of Samantha Power: She Watched Half a Million Arabs Die, Then Slammed Israel
For the duration of the seemingly endless Syrian civil war, she has figuratively fiddled while that country burns. Now, with one foot out the door from a tenure that has all but obliterated her once formidable reputation as an anti-genocide activist, she’s decided to kick Israel in the teeth.

Report: Obama To Have Kerry Lay Out Plan For ‘Peace’, Get UN Approval To Impose On Israel
ONE THING IS CERTAIN: MANY, MANY PEOPLE OF THE JEWISH FAITH ARE GIVING THANKS THAT THEY WILL SOON HAVE A POWERFUL FRIEND AND NOT A SWORN ENEMY IN AMERICA.

Hillary’s Horribles
Yes, Clinton won the popular vote. Who cares? That was never, nor should it ever be, the measure that determines who is elected president. She knew it. Her supporters knew it. Her campaign knew it. They just chose not to campaign that way.
Call it arrogance or ignorance, but Hillary spent more time in California, a state she’d have won comfortably no matter what, than Wisconsin and Michigan in the final days of the election. She and her team made that choice, consciously. Just like she chose to call half of Trump’s supporters “a basket of deplorables” who, even worse, were “irredeemable.”

Imprisoned Blagojevich awaits Obama decision on commutation
One of the last chances for former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich to win early release from federal prison rests on a pending decision by the man whose Senate seat Blagojevich was convicted of trying to sell — President Barack Obama.
D.A. PATRICK FITZGERALD INDICTED POOR ROD BEFORE THE CORRUPTION COULD REACH THE BLACK PRINCE. BLAGO DIDN’T DO ANYTHING THAT ISN’T DONE EVERY DAY IN THE CESSPOOL OF A STATE I LIVE IN.

Christmas News

from Luke Chapter 2
4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14
“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

5,000-Year-Old Nativity Scene Found in Egypt
Ancient cave art in the Egyptian Sahara desert depicts two parents, a baby and a star in the east.
“It’s a very evocative scene which indeed resembles the Christmas nativity. But it predates it by some 3,000 years,” geologist Marco Morelli, director of the Museum of Planetary Sciences in Prato, near Florence, Italy, told Seeker.

Schertz police give 3-year-old ‘officer’ with leukemia a custom patrol vehicle
The department gathered donations from people within the department and from Walmart to purchase a miniature police Chevrolet Tahoe for Eli Hoag and a Razor scooter for his sister, Brooklyn.

How a Broken Organ and Two Musicians Blessed the World
For years we did not know exactly when he wrote “Silent Night” since the original manuscript was lost. However, in 1995 one manuscript in Mohr’s own handwriting was discovered. It shows conclusively that he wrote the words down as a poem in 1816, two years before it became a song.

Pizza delivery man finds a miracle at church
Two years ago, the father of three was diagnosed with end-stage heart failure. He would need a pump implanted into his chest that does 90% of the resting workload of the heart. Because the pump needs 24-hour power, Cammack has to wear a battery pack when he is out of the house, and must be plugged in when home.
“I need this to live,” Cammack said, patting the pack. “And medication.”
After sharing his story on stage, the magic started.
“Everyone got up out of their seats and came up to us and dropped money in the hat,” he said. “$1,456.”
“The world is good. It is full of goodness and kindness and people are just waiting to be able to express that in some way and be witness to that,” said Cammack. “It was phenomenal.”
But there’s more. On Monday, Devin got word from his doctor that he no longer needs a heart transplant because his treatment is working and his heart is beginning to return to a more manageable size. He will still require his implant for a while longer and lifelong medication.

Who Is St. Nicholas?
The true story of Santa Claus begins with Nicholas, who was born during the third century in the village of Patara. At the time the area was Greek and is now on the southern coast of Turkey. His wealthy parents, who raised him to be a devout Christian, died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young. Obeying Jesus’ words to “sell what you own and give the money to the poor,” Nicholas used his whole inheritance to assist the needy, the sick, and the suffering. He dedicated his life to serving God and was made Bishop of Myra while still a young man. Bishop Nicholas became known throughout the land for his generosity to those in need, his love for children, and his concern for sailors and ships.
