~A Veteran~

A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America, for an amount of "Up to and including my life". That is honor, and there are far too many people in this country who no longer understand it. - Author Unknown

The Supreme Court has decided to give MY American rights and due processes to Foreign Terrorists.

You’re fired. You are relieved of your duties Supreme Court Justices.

Your votes to allow TERRORISTS American RIGHTS and Processes; SLAPS every Member of this Nations ARMED FORCES in the face. The military members that PROTECT our Freedoms and solidify our constitutional rights, the very soldiers that have fought, bled, and DIED for our Freedoms; you have just STABBED in the back by allowing the TERRORISTS to trample all over what they fight to uphold. YOUR FIRED!

Attorneys in the United States are waiting with baited breath to represent Foreign Terrorists and help them absolve their crimes against the people of Iraq, coalition forces, and American Soldiers with American Laws and Rights.

Your licenses to practice law should be revoked. You can give those Gitmo detainee’s your personal address and contact information if you feel they are so “innocent.”

“A Few Good Men”- "I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it." - Jack Nicholson

Gitmo detainee’s are there because soldiers had more than enough compelling evidence upon detaining them, turning them over to higher ranking officials, and sending them through an assortment of military processes to deem it VITAL that they be sent to Guantanamo verses secondary or lesser detention facilities. This is not an eenie-meenie-miney-mo-pick-a-terrorist-by-the-toe hap hazard random choosing of placements.

Gitmo is for leaders of terrorist’s cells and groups. The playing card types that the military had hundreds of actual names for. Gitmo detainees are organizers, leaders, high contacts and at the top of the tiers. Gitmo is like our Federal Penitentiary.

Abu Ghraib is for second rung terrorists, the lesser offenders. There is still enough compelling evidence and terrorism attacks on the people of Iraq and American soldiers to warrant detention. Abu Ghraib is similar to our state prisons.

Local people who have committed a one time or lesser degree act of terrorism under circumstances such as coercion by cell groups or rogue acts and most often because an organized terrorist group threatens their entire family with brutal death if the head of household does not perform according to their will, they are detained locally—but usually released after a short period of time and information is gathered.

What most Americans fail to understand, and the Media HIDES is that in THIS war, terrorists are not defined by a uniform, or an assembly of soldiers or particular front designator.

Farmer Joe down the road with 7 sheep, 2 goats and a field of palms owns at least one AK-47 rifle. It is STANDARD of the lifestyle and environment. His neighbor who fixes machines and sells vegetables at the market from his garden also owns an AK-47.

A village over-with friends, cousins, brothers, and assortment of cohorts; all have civilian “day jobs” and all own AK-47’s. Within each of these homes, one person keeps detonation cord; one person keeps remote equipment, another keeps cell phones, another chemicals, and still another parts and pieces of bomb casings hidden.

At night these civilians gather together and bring the bits and parts to plant IED’s along military traveled roads. Or they make vests to blow themselves up in crowded markets, or perhaps rig an old car so it becomes a super driven explosive through a convoy or checkpoint barrier killing as many as possible.

Then they quietly scurry back home to civilian life again. They don’t wear signs, patches, or insignia that screams “Al-Qaeda Iraq” or “Mahdi Army Militia” on them. They hide in crowds with rifles under their clothing, take their shots, drop their weapons and blend back in with the crowd.

The media spins words like “insurgency, militia, cells, groups, etc; to invoke or provide the American armchair warrior with an ideal that there is a “type” of enemy combative being fought.

THERE IS NOT. This is URBAN-GUERRILLA-CITIES-TOWNS-VILLAGES filled with average people and no way of knowing for certain who is a combative or not. The moment of clarity comes in split seconds. The moment is when that “local” is pointing a weapon at a soldier, or walking into a crowded market with explosives wearing civilian clothing.

Our soldiers have less than 3 seconds to save lives. This includes the local civilians around them, soldiers in their squads, and themselves. 3 s-e-c-o-n-d-s. Hold your breath.

Military intelligence, local villagers, and Imams who are tired of their children dying, their homes being destroyed and their family members being beheaded in front of them turn in information on these terrorists. Military personnel then have to WATCH to verify that the information given is valid, always knowing that it is dangerous and could cost them their lives.

If our soldiers get into a battle with one or one hundred of these terrorists they do not have time to yell “STOP! I have to take some incriminating photos and oh by the way, will you the terrorists, please sign this form declaring your guilt in planting the IED that just blew up the humvee in front of us, and while you do that, lets all turn our backs and go pick up those shell casings we spent while shooting back under enemy fire.” (evidence and all)

Yet this is what the CIVILIAN ATTORNEYS who represent the terrorists want to use to FREE them.

Has anyone in America stopped to think where the Gitmo terrorists will go after the Supreme Court Judge’s gavel declares innocence?

THEY WILL WALK STRAIGHT-OUT-OF-THE-COURTHOUSE-ONTO-AMERICAN-SOIL. If by some measure they are secured and deported back to Iraq, they will RESUME terrorist activities. THEY WILL. These are HIGH Tier Terrorists. Well organized, high RUNG of the ladder members. It does not require surveys and a special commissions group to determine whether or not it will happen. COMMON sense dictates here.

These terrorists have NO RIGHTS to MY AMERICAN rights.

CLOSE GITMO, Mr. President.

Send the terrorists to Iraq to the fortified prison Saddam stayed at, or Abu Ghraib where they can await trial on their soil, with their laws, their guards, and their oil funding paying for their comforts and detention.

Let the justice system that served Saddam, serve them.

Right now Mr. President, you have less than 5 months to complete one more solid task to insure security for OUR Nation.

CLOSE GITMO, Mr. President.

Independence Day Through a Tri-Color Looking Glass

I am not pro-war, I am pro-military soldier. I respect, honor, reverence, and remember those who wear the uniforms that defend this country voluntarily so I do not have to.

When I hear the Pledge of Allegiance my body is still, my hand covers my heart, and my eyes look to the American flag. I am reminded of the words of Cpl Chris Mason, may he rest in peace; when he said “We choose to believe that the patch we wear on our right shoulder stands for something; that’s greater than ourselves, that’s greater than where we are from, we’re the fabric that holds the flag together.”

That fabric and those threads within the design of the American flag will always represent every American soldier who has fought for our country.

When I hear music that reflects patriotism, I sing along and choke out the words because the emotional upheaval usually invokes tears of pride, love, and remembrance of heroes and their sacrifices.

The Fourth of July, Independence Day, stands as a collective reminder of the patriotism and pains in military life.

This year I am blessed to be able to share Independence Day with my soldier. He has been home from his third deployment for 7 weeks now. Many soldiers have issues with noises associated with fireworks. My husband is not one of them. He enjoys the science of explosions and generally being a pyro as long as he is aware of what is going to happen. He is not fond of surprise explosions, like his Independence Day memories of 2005—mortar attacks, IED’s, running terrorists out of small villages, being under small arms enemy fire. Or last year when random IED’s exploded along convoy routes.

However here in America, our neighbors do not plant bombs outside our home, or threaten to behead us if we refuse to harbor enemy combatives of their holy war. Nor do our military come to our homes and rape our small female and male children, or goats, sheep, and other animals.

I haven’t had to worry about arming my children at 5 years old or teach my female child to cover herself from head to toe with clothing so she isn’t murdered for accidentally showing an elbow or neck part in the 120 degree heat.

Instead I have taught my children about choices, freedoms, liberties, rights, and what it means to be an American. I could fill a novel with the life lessons I have taught my children.

Last night in the shadow of the moon I stood outside in my small backyard garden spot tending and watering tiny Forget-Me-Not seedlings. They are the official flower of the Veterans of Foreign War.

While I watered I watched the figures in my house move-my husband busy in the kitchen wrapping up the dinner cleaning duties and my son moving around from room to room. I heard murmurs of conversation which means my son was having ice cream for dessert.

Outside a few birds rustled, crickets sang, and the occasional car passed. Our outside cat lay a few feet away sleeping on soft grass not bothered by anything.

This morning under the bright new day sunrise, the birds are singing, butterflies are enjoying the flowers, small rolly pollies are scurrying around the mulch and the world is waking up.

My phone has already rung four times; I have answered 7 emails, and checked my business website. The Vet Hut™ veterans are in full swing with the “4th with Vets” Celebration project. So far they have 62 families attending. EOD, PyroTechs, and veterans set up a safe zone for families to shoot fireworks with a BBQ buffet and potluck. This is all sponsored and supported by CCI® (my non profit) but completely orchestrated and operated voluntarily by veterans. It was their idea. I haven’t even finished a full cup of coffee yet—so it goes.

Tomorrow is a big day for our Nation. As a whole we celebrate Independence. For me personally, it is a somber reflection with an undertone of burning passion. When the smoke of the fireworks have lifted, there will still be soldiers in lands far away from home making sure I can stand quietly in my backyard under the moonlight and water my Forget-Me-Nots.

I am an American.

Bought and paid for by American soldiers who voluntarily serve this Nation.

"We sleep soundly in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm." - Winston Churchill

Many argue that George Orwell quoted that, in his Notes on Nationalism in 1945. He wrote something similar to pacifist, but not that quote.

I also like this quote from the movie “A Few Good Men”- "I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it." - Jack Nicholson
This is actually for another blog piece I am working on---so stay tuned!

Bottom line, American soldiers will KILL and DIE to ensure our Nations FREEDOM.
The VERY FREEDOM and INDEPENDENCE we celebrate on July 4th.

Obama For Sale

Obama announced he would become the first major party candidate to forgo public financing ....we all know this. It means he will garner funding from "private" donors.

Who are the "private donors?"

Obama raised $22 million in May for his presidential campaign, his weakest fundraising month this year, and ended the month with $43 million cash on hand....interesting.

Hillary Clinton's loyal donors have already contributed the maximum to her campaign, so she needs some new sources of money to settle her debts. That's where Obama comes in _ his donors help her out, her donors help him. Suspicious.

People have forgotten that Obama has Oprah in his back pocket for a funding source.

Who else does Obama have?

Who are the "private donors?"

Are the "books" cooked?

Can the public see where the money train ends in the private sectors? We can see the PUBLIC records--the link is below. What about the private records?

Hypothetically, is it possible that since Obama is so well loved in places like Hamas, Iran, Cuba, ORGANIZATION OF THE PEOPLE'S HOLY WARRIORS OF IRAN, NATIONAL COUNCIL OF RESISTANCE (NCR), PEOPLE'S MUJAHEDDIN ORGANIZATION, Islamic radicals, Yousef al-Khattab.....that a large portion of his "private funding" have end-roads with these groups?

I say again, OBAMA FOR SALE.

OBAMA FOR SALE----To the best donors, with the deepest pockets and best script writers. Let's face it, he can't talk to anyone without it being written and a spell check performed. If left to his own, speaking off the cuff we would see the true character who is bidding for the highest office in our Country.

OBAMA FOR SALE = The United States for Sale.

Have you added that equation yet?

Here is the link to the Federal Campaign Finance Laws


If you use the left sidebar, under Campaign Finance Reports and Data, it takes you to a page for Summary reports. In the search engine, type Obama, click ALL, 2007/2008, and send query. Next page, under presidential candidate, click the "individual contributions" on the left bar for a summary report. You can choose by the assortment of letters. I chose F-J first and then A-E. Certainly you can spend hours searching through individual funding contributors, but in order to find something--you have to be willing to look. You would be surprised at the contributors from places, businesses, and national departments you know. Seriously. CEO's from Johnson & Johnson, JP Morgan/Chase VP, Microsoft, CBS Paramount Writers, online gaming-Pop Cap, pharmaceuticals, attorneys, etc. Many of the contributors who are listed as physicians in the name title section (Dr, PhD) will have the listing section with additional listing information as "not employed/student" but contribute an amazing $1000 - $2300.

I DON'T suggest clicking on "A" if your sensitive to middle-easterners or subject to profiling names like Abdul, Aleem, Abdoo, Abdallah, Muhammed, Ahmed, Muhammadun, Abbas, Massoud, and combinations that are obvious like Abbobaker (Abbo and Baker) and so forth. You'll just get angry, so avoid it and have a happier day. WAIT! I have to tell you though, my favorite combination had to be this one: Aboukhater. (Abouk and Hater)

The suspicious contribution that seemed odd to me was this one.

Contributions Arranged COHEN, TIRZAH
NEW YORK, NY 10025

Now granted I was specifically searching for Joseph Cohen, just to see if he even had the fortitude or courage to use his actual birth name verses his "pick it out of the sky-Islamic" name because he read the fictitious qu'ran. --in my personal opinion.

Note: the largest INDEPENDENT EXPENDITURE ON BEHALF OF THE CANDIDATE, that gives in 5-6 figures is:


1800 Massachusetts Ave NW

Washington, DC 20036
Committee ID: C00004036
Treasurer Name: Anna Burger
Committee Designation: U (UNAUTHORIZED)

It is a is labor union representing 1.9 million workers in over 100 occupations in the United States and Canada.

There is also MoveOn.org, Naral Pro Choice America, Mid-Atlantic Progressive Leadership Committee, different Illinois departments, and several Life and Liberty PAC groups.

Finally, under individual contributions, you can be sure, that his good buddy, and host of his first fundraiser gives generously through some means on a continual basis.




Remember this traitor? Enemy of the State and Nation? Our Military men and women do.....

Some things are just mandatory. This soldier deserves to have his truth known, whatever his truth is.
