Greetings and happy Saturday to y’all! I would also like to take the time to wish all my Veteran Brothers and Sisters a very Happy Veterans Day, and weekend. As well, a hearty Happy Birthday shout out to the fiercest fighting force since the Spartans, our venerable United States Marine Corps. It was November 10, 1775 when our Corps was founded in Tun Tavern in Philadelphia, what better place to find fighting men . . . and now women. Happy Birthday, Marines!!!
As we honor those who served, and are still with us, remember, “All Gave Some, Some Gave All.” Let us ponder a real question. Is honoring our veterans just about a day here or there? I say it should not be, it should be about honoring them as we honor their service, sacrifice, and commitment that enables us to live in this great land of individual liberty, freedom, and opportunity. However, when we see young people in Honk Kong singing our National Anthem and carrying our flag, whilst people here take a knee instead, are we honoring our veterans, for whom that same flag will drape their casket as they depart this place, the America they served?
It’s almost every day that the stuck on stupid progressive socialist left displays their disdain for our America, which I among many served. Just recently a member of Congress, Rep. Ilhan Omar, spoke at a rally for an avowed socialist, Bernie Sanders — who honeymooned in the Soviet Union — and declared that the 2020 presidential election is about defeating western imperialism.
But this week’s Old School Patriot “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” recognition goes to a mindless lemming leftist judge who just conveyed the greatest disrespect to Americans.
As reported by Townhall:
“A federal judge ruled on Tuesday that the government must provide mental health services for thousands of migrant [illegal immigrant] families that were separated under the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance policy,” The New York Times has reported.
John A. Kronstadt, a U.S. District Court judge in Los Angeles, decided the federal government must immediately provide mental health screenings and treatment to migrant [illegal immigrant] families separated while the policy was in effect. The Angel Moms, whose children have been killed by illegal aliens, were not happy with his ruling.”
Hmm, wonder why no judges ruled the same during the Obama administration? Or should the federal government have paid likewise for the family of slain US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, killed as part of Obama and Holder’s Operation Fast and Furious scheme?
Here are just a few of the Angel moms, those who shall be permanently separated from their loved ones, thanks to the crimes of illegal immigrants:
“- Angel Mom Sabine Durden, a legal immigrant, lost her son Dominic after an illegal immigrant with a record of drunk driving crashed into her son’s motorcycle. The illegal immigrant only spent about 35 days in jail before being deported back to Guatemala. Durden has become a vocal advocate for victims of illegal-immigrant crime.
– Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza lost her son, Sgt. Brandon Mendoza, when an illegal alien drunk driver, who was also high on drugs, killed her son in a head-on collision.
– Angel Mom Michelle Root lost her daughter Sarah after an illegal alien drunk driving collided with Sarah’s car just hours after Sarah attended her college commencement ceremony. Authorities believe the illegal alien was street racing at the time.
In response to Tuesday’s ruling, the Angel Mom asked, “When will American Citizens be treated better than illegal aliens?”
Sadly, the answer to that question is never. When it comes to their ideological agenda — which includes immense hatred of President Trump — the left will never care more about Americans. Consider the families of Kate Steinle, Mollie Tibbets, Ofc, Ronil Singh, Jamiel Shaw Jr., and so many others who, yes, shall be permanently separated from their loved ones. Where are the leftist socialist rulings showing them any care, concern, government programs? Nah. As a matter of fact, the five-time deported criminal illegal immigrant who shot and killed Kate Steinle went so far as to file a lawsuit. Yes, some stuck on stupid progressive socialist justice warrior lawyer was behind that!
Suburban moms, ya know, the ones they say will not vote for President Trump. So y’all gonna vote for the people who could care less if an illegal immigrant kills your child? Here in Texas, thanks to the left’s ideological agenda of open borders, we are the number one state in America for human and sex trafficking. Ya don’t hear ol’ Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez talking about that, nor Bob Frank open borders O’Rourke.
You can bet that the state of our Founding Fathers, Virginia, will soon become a sanctuary state for illegal immigrants. Yes, since the incompetence of the left went to the polls and voted for progressive socialism. Now ol’ Ralph “Blackface” Northam has already announced gun control laws will be their first line of attack as they allow Virginia to be overrun by illegal immigrants, including vicious gangs like MS-13.
Yes, VA will soon be the east coast version of CA, unless the blood of patriots still flows through the veins of true Virginians and they right their ship.
Every day, the left lets us know how little they care about the America our veterans swore to support and defend, our rule of law, the US Constitution. It’s why I scratch my head whenever a veteran tells me that they support the Democrat (socialist) party. Hmm, what part of the oath did these veterans not understand?
One thing I understand, from an objective perspective, ya just gotta be stuck on stupid to embrace progressive socialism in America. I am going to say this very clearly: if you are one of those who do, please do not tell me “Happy Veterans Day,” or “Thank you for your service.” You are not honoring my sacrifice by supporting a philosophy of governance that undermines our Constitution, as you seek to destroy, and fundamentally transform the nation that I love, for whom my dad, my older brother, and my nephew have served, in combat.
