POLL: Do you agree with Trump taking money from Sanctuary Cities and using it to help Injured Vets?

BOSTON MARATHON WAS STAGE FOR RUN OF A TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOT.

Patriotism is far from dead in this country. With the election of Donald Trump, there is a new attitude at work. Many people are letting it be known they love this land.

The American flag is being seen and not as a fire starter. The military has a huge support system. The Obama’s are gone and respect is starting to rear its head.

People are displaying their pride in various ways.

In the recent marathon that saw a bombing a few years ago, someone ran with pride. A retired marine ran carrying the stars and stripes with pride. The thing is…he is an amputee.

This man from Texas used the race as an opportunity to represent patriotism.

Per Washington Examiner reported:

Retired Texas Marine Staff Sgt. Jose Sanchez is a recovering amputee, but that didn’t stop him from leaving an indelible mark on this year’s Boston Marathon.

Sanchez was injured in 2011 while serving in Afghanistan and has been private about the incident until now.

For five years, a gift Sanchez received from his fellow Marines remained unopened. Yet, it was that gift that changed his perspective and spurred him from his antisocial state.

The gift was a large American flag signed by his fellow troops with notes of encouragement and inspiration.

Please VOTE by tapping YES or NO below!!

This is a man that gave a lot and wanted others to see why. The story continues.

Sanchez was determined to not merely put the flag away, but to display it in honor of the troops who motivated him to get past his anger and depression and find a positive outlet to give back. So he proudly displayed the flag as he ran the Boston Marathon.

LEFT IS CLUELESS

The left cannot understand the reasoning of a man like Mr. Sanchez. They think he should be raging and firing off at the nation. But what they do not realize is he looks past his loss.

This courageous soldier sees the value in the country and its people. He loves America and will not treat her like dirt. Maybe they can take a age from his life-book and …never mind. They can’t read his manuscript.  Too right for their left minds.

Stories like this remind us all of what is good about this country. It’s history alone catalogs resolve and resonance of it’s citizens. Want to capture a glimpse of what’s right in America?

Look at a video of the amazing run of this warrior/soldier/marine.

How do stories like this make you feel?

Injured Marine holds salute for 3 hours, then some Patriotic Bikers show up!

Staff Sargent Tim Chambers has become a local hero for the annual tribute he pays to his fallen brothers in arms during the Rolling Thunder Ride for Freedom.

A shattered wrist that should have been in a cast could not keep him from holding his 3 hour long salute over a makeshift memorial to those who died for us.

Watch this video and pay your own tribute to marines like Tim and to all of the fighting men and women who didn’t make it home.

Trump Approval SOARS!

The vets love President Trump because President Trump loves the vets.

During the 2o16 campaign, Donald Trump vowed to help our nation’s forgotten heroes.

And since winning the White House, he’s doing just that.

A new poll shows that 54% of vets approve of the job President Trump is doing.

That sounds about right and is likely reflective of what all Americans think and feel, but our lying media shoves their famous “fake polls” down our collective throats.

From Town Hall

Pew Research Center highlighted findings Friday that President Trump’s job approval is higher amongst U.S. veterans than the overall public.

In April, 54 percent of military veterans approved of the president’s job performance compared to just 39 percent job approval among the American public according to the same April survey, conducted using Pew Research Center’s American Trends Panel.

Pew notes that “Both younger and older veterans gave higher approval ratings for Trump than did younger and older adults overall. Nearly half of veterans ages 18 to 49 (46 percent) approved of Trump’s job performance, compared with only 31 percent of all adults younger than 50.

Among those 50 and older, nearly six-in-ten veterans (58 percent) supported Trump, while about half of all older adults (49 percent) said the same.”

The polling center also noted that Trump held a wide 60-34 percent advantage over Clinton among veterans, according to a national exit poll conducted by Edison Research for the National Election Pool.

The polling data was “drawn from the panel wave conducted April 4-April 18, 2017 among 4,168 respondents. The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 4,168 respondents is plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.”

CRIME Couple Who Tied Service Dog to Tree and Shot It While LAUGHING Just Got INSTANT Justice

For most service members with a service dog, the bond between man and animal is unbreakable. But some people are sick and evil inside, and the story of what these two horrible people did proves it.

Marinna Rollins is a veteran who was given a medical discharge from the military due to PTSD. She was assigned a service dog named Camboui, who she called Cam. Her boyfriend, Jarren Heng, is still on active duty. And together, the two of them committed an awful crime.

They took Cam, a grey and white pitbull, to a wooded area, where they tied him to a tree. Rollins then shot him five times, laughing with Heng, as they took turns filming the brutal crime.

On the video, Heng can be heard saying, “Let me hit him once”, while Rollins shot the dog. Rollins can likewise be heard saying, “It’s been real … I love you, you’re my puppy, you’re a good puppy, but… “, and after the dog was dead, Rollins can be seen dragging the poor dog’s body around. They then rolled Cam into a shallow grave. “Kind of put him a little deeper,” Heng said.

Text messages and social media postings appear to show a lot of premeditation. On Rollins’ Facebook page, she had posted, “Great last day with the pooch! Sad he has to go, but he will be much happier where he is heading off to :)” with Heng responding, “He’s gonna have such a great new life.”

Rollins is currently being held on $25,000 bail, and has been charged with animal cruelty and conspiracy.

 

In John Hawkins’ new book, ‘101 Things All Young Adults Should Know’, he teaches in chapter 17 that if you want to know what a person really believes, watch their actions.

These actions show that these two believe in pure evil, nothing less. They should never be allowed to walk free again.

National Vietnam War Veterans Day

On March 28, President Trump signed Senate Bill 305, the Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act of 2017 which designates March 29 as National Vietnam War Veterans Day. It was on this day in 1973 that the last U.S. combat troops left Vietnam on this day in.

President Trump tweeted:

“Tonight I’m proud to sign S. 305, which encourages the display of the U.S. flag on National Vietnam War Veterans Day tomorrow, March 29th.”

U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), who co-authored the bill with Joe Donnelly (D-IN), said

Some of them were actually treated quite poorly. And that was a tragic period in our history driven by people’s perceptions of the war. Fortunately, that, I think, is behind us now. And I hope and I believe we’ve gotten to a place where the American people realize how much we really should be grateful to the men and the women who served this country in Vietnam during that very, very difficult time.”

And Zachariah Pearson, director of McKean County, Penn. Veterans Affairs added:

Vietnam veterans nobly served during a conflict which was not too popular during that time. It’s an absolute shame the way in which this country responded to the welcoming home of our Vietnam veterans. When they got home, they struggled to find employment, healthcare and places to go to talk about some of the events that took place over there.”

Many of us Vietnam Veterans remember the way we were treated as we returned home. And many of us will continue to suffer from our participation in that war. But we will never forget that

Out of the 2.7 million U.S. service members who served in Vietnam, more than 58,000 were killed and more than 304,000 were wounded.

And we are thankful to all of you who come up to us and thank us for our service to our country. You may be unaware how much we appreciate that.

Pissed Off Veterans Take Matters Into Their Own Hands After Seeing SICK Thing VA Hospital Did With Trump’s Pic

Despite the many hats that the President of the United States wears, his primary job is still to be the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. Much of the respect that other nations give him is because he controls the movements of the greatest military force on earth.

After these formidable men and women in uniform have completed their service, they are forever entitled to certain support and benefits. One of these benefits is health care provided by the Veterans Affairs office, which is overseen by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs. Because of this, the portrait of both the President and the Secretary of Veterans Affairs are supposed to hang in each VA hospital, but for some reason, the frames are empty at the hospital in West Palm Beach. This happens to be the hospital where congressman and dual-amputee veteran Brian Mast seeks his treatment.

Via CBS:

“Congressman Brian Mast, himself a veteran, brought the men and the portraits to the facility and demanded they be installed. The whole thing was caught on camera.

This video shows first term Congressman Brian Mast and a group of veterans taking action.

Mast’s office says he was contacted by several constituents who wore this country’s uniform with the same issue – they wanted to know why President Donald Trump’s portrait and Secretary David Schulkin’s portrait were not there to greet visitors at the VA hospital.”

The Congressman is obviously dedicated to fixing this problem, as is Army veteran, John Rourke:

“Two blank holes, it’s been 60 something days now. The veterans administration has been asked about it a few times, the local VA hospital has and they haven’t had any real reason other than they didn’t have the picture, which is readily available.

“That’s the person who would ultimately give the order for us to put our lives in danger and we believe that his picture should be displayed there proudly.”

Despite the actions of Congressman Mast and his fellow veterans, the VA took the portraits down shortly after they were installed. A spokeswoman told CBS that “the congressman’s actions and the actions of the veterans who accompanied him were ‘inappropriate’ and that the cell phone video was not legally obtained.

Liberals Joke About Veterans Who Suffered PTSD, Gets INSTANTLY WRECKED By Amputee Congressman

Liberals have literally lost their lobes.  If you thought liberals were crazy before, then this will open eyes across the globe as it shines a light on the true mental illness named LIBERALISM.

When tons of people say liberalism is a disease, your first reaction is that it’s just a joke. But then you experience true liberalism around you, on television, in the media, on websites, and anywhere else and you begin thinking “WTF is wrong with those people?”

And the truth is that they literally are insane and they hate themselves and they need serious help breaking out of their liberal mentality that forbids them from having any common sense or logic whatsoever.

Here’s a perfect example of how liberals don’t think before they speak – let alone do anything.

They have now come up with a name for their plight, they’re calling it “Post-Election Stress Disorder.”  The title is a nod toward the condition that many returning veterans experience, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

PTSD is a serious disorder, it is believed to be responsible for suicides in a large number of active duty military and veterans. Every day, 22 veterans take their own lives. That’s a suicide every 65 minutes. As shocking as the number is, it may actually be higher.*

Some veterans are taking exception, with good reason, to liberals even insinuating that their disappointment over Hillary Clinton losing an election comes close to what is experienced on the battlefield.

The liberals who are butt-hurt over the FAIR results of the FAIR election have created a term called PESD for post election stress disorder. It’s a play on the label PTSD which many war veterans suffer when they are lucky enough to return home from battle after seeing and doing things most humans couldn’t handle.

Veterans aren’t very fond of it. These are the people who fought for our rights to be as coo, smart, stupid, and fun as we can in our great country of America. It would behoove these borderline spectrum libturds to have some common decency and originality.

You mean to tell me that your weak candidate losing is comparable to veterans who are forced to shoot people, get shot at, see friends perish, can’t sleep because they hear explosions in their head and that’s just like PTSD? I think not. I also think liberals should’ve thought about how stupid they were – not for the name, but for the simple fact that they even gave themselves a disorder.

You have to be mentally ill to create a fake disorder so that you can be the victim of something else.

#Sad.

 

Veterans meet with Trump at the White House

Ten major veterans groups sat down with President Donald Trump on Friday to discuss veterans issues ranging from health care for women to creating a White House office dedicated to veteran empowerment.

Veterans groups have worked for months to secure the meeting with Trump, who had made veterans issues a major part of presidential campaign. Several of the veterans who attended the listening session with Trump described the meeting as “positive” and “conversational.”

“He was really into the conversation, and his staff promised more conversations. They seemed dedicated to that,” said Joe Chenelly, director of American Veterans. “We’ll take the president at his word when he says this is just the beginning of working together as partners and reforming the [Department of Veterans Affairs], particularly the health care issues.”

In addition to Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, VA Secretary David Shulkin and senior White House staff, including Kellyanne Conway, Stephen Miller, Sean Spicer, Jared Kushner and Omarosa Manigault were present, the veterans said.

Organizations represented were the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Student Veterans of America, Vietnam Veterans of America, American Veterans, Concerned Veterans forAmerica, Paralyzed Veterans of America, Disabled American Veterans, Military Order of the Purple Heart and Got Your 6.

Paul Rieckhoff, director of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, took to Twitter on Friday, saying he was disappointed the White House denied IAVA’s request to attend.

Verna Jones, executive director of the American Legion, had strongly appealed for the meeting. Bill Rausch, executive director of the veterans nonprofit Got Your 6, said he thought the meeting showed the White House’s commitment to the veteran community.

“We’re hoping this is one of many,” Jones said of the meeting with the president.

During the meeting, Trump refuted claims he would privatize the VA, Jones said, reiterating a message Shulkin and key Republican lawmakers have conveyed in recent months.

“He assured us the VA is here to stay, that they’re not going to privatize it – veterans will have a healthy VA,” Jones said.

Some groups have expressed concerns that veterans’ health care would move too far into the private sector and remove services from the VA, which they see as providing care uniquely fit for veterans.

Rausch said there was “a clear consensus for support of the veteran community through a strong VA” during the meeting.

The members from each group took turns talking to Trump about their priorities. Some of them spoke about the Veterans Choice Program, which veterans use to receive care in the private sector when they can’t get an appointment at a VA facility. The program, which has been criticized as complex and confusing, is in flux. It will expire in August without action from Congress, and Shulkin is working on an improved version that he promises will have “less red tape.”

Chenelly told Trump that the choice program should continue, but the VA should better inform veterans about their options when deciding where to seek health care.

Rausch proposed Trump sign an executive order establishing a new office in the White House dedicated to veteran empowerment. Trump was receptive to the idea, Rausch said, and asked Pence to follow up.

Others told Trump about the need to modernize the process that veterans use to claim disability and pension compensation and the need for more benefits to caregivers of veterans injured pre-9/11, Jones and Chenelly said. They also asked for more details about an announcement that Shulkin made last week that he would expand urgent mental health care for veterans with other-than-honorable discharges.

“There was not a lot of response from them, but I saw that as our chance to have our voices heard,” Chenelly said.

In statements before the meeting, Shulkin thanked Trump for the budget that he proposed Thursday for the VA, which includes a $4.4 billion increase from 2017.

“I think you’re upholding your commitment to showing that this country cares about the veterans, and you’ve given us the ability to make sure that we are able to care for them,” Shulkin told Trump.

Shulkin also thanked the Republican-led House for passing legislation Thursday that would allow him to quickly fire, demote and suspend VA employees. That bill now will now go to the Senate, but there’s no clear timeline of when senators will consider it.

Mark Lucas, executive director of Concerned Veterans for America, said he urged Trump during the meeting to talk to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., about expediting a vote on the bill.

Trump said he’s heard “horrible stories” about the VA but “already a lot of improvements are being made.”

He said he was forming a VA board that will be comprised of businessmen and medical professionals. Isaac “Ike” Perlmutter, CEO of Marvel Entertainment, is part of that board, Trump said, though he did not say who else will take part. The president also announced a “major” meeting about the VA scheduled for Friday night at his Mar-a-Lago estate.

Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., has been critical of Trump for not meeting with veterans groups. He said Friday that the listening session was a “step in the right direction.”

“Moving forward, I am hopeful the administration will better engage with key veterans’ advocates to ensure they have a seat at the table in shaping policies,” he said in a statement.
