Memorial Day 2015: Never Forget Their Sacrifices

JFK Arlington DC

This weekend, we remember those who gave their last full measure of devotion so that we might remain free and continue to enjoy the blessings of the greatest Republic the world has ever known:

Memorial Day, which is observed on the last Monday of May, commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service.

In observance of the holiday, many people visit cemeteries and memorials, and volunteers often place American flags on each grave site at national cemeteries. A national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00 p.m. local time.

Arlington National Cemetery - Copy

The U.S. Code indicates that Memorial Day should be a day of prayer:

Please pray for the repose of the souls of all who have made the ultimate sacrifice, giving their lives to protect and serve our beloved nation, so that we and our children and grandchildren may remain forever free. 

6

Let us always remember the brave men and women who fought to keep us free, with liberty and justice for all.

  1. Thank you Miri. ❤

  2. Day is done, gone the sun,
    From the hills, from the lake,
    From the sky.
    All is well, safely rest,
    God is nigh.

    Go to sleep, peaceful sleep,
    May the soldier or sailor,
    God keep.
    On the land or the deep,
    Safe in sleep.

    Love, good night, Must thou go,
    When the day, And the night
    Need thee so?
    All is well. Speedeth all
    To their rest.

    Fades the light; And afar
    Goeth day, And the stars
    Shineth bright,
    Fare thee well; Day has gone,
    Night is on.

    Thanks and praise, For our days,
    ‘Neath the sun, Neath the stars,
    ‘Neath the sky,
    As we go, This we know,
    God is nigh.

    • Just taking advantage of the fact that most Americans will be enjoying their 3-day holiday and not paying attention. She hopes.

    • Can you believe her? Some people have no shame. I guess it goes with the territory when your dad is Al Sharpton.

  5. the secret seems to be paste, erase then paste again? 😀

  6. Taking their racism to a new level, so called “peaceful protesters” now are pepper spraying innocent diners (no doubt white ones) in order to what? Prove some kind of point? This is racism in the extreme. They imagine that white cops go around pepper spraying innocent blacks and so, in a totally racist manner, they “get even” by pepper spraying innocent people trying to eat their meals. Just trying to make them “uncomfortable,” I imagine:

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2015/05/cleveland-riots-protesters-pepper-spray-patrons-sitting-at-restaurants-video/

    Will they file hate crime charges? Will they even file assault charges? The perps are lucky the diners didn’t “fight back”.

    • Actually, after thinking about it some more, it’s not funny at all. It goes to show (1) how ignorant and out of touch our young people are and (2) how easily they can be brainwashed by progressive-think.

    Here’s an article I saved and it’s important to remember this was posted at FreedomOutpost long before Jade Helm was ever mentioned – the timing couldn’t be more frightening. This is from December 9th 2014 – if this doesn’t convince you something bad is about to happen, nothing will.

    “Is Jade Helm being blown out of proportion?” Keeping in mind;

    ALL crises are “created ” to dilute the crisis at hand. The note; “in other words”; is to change the subject. When a “second thought”; rears it’s ugly head; another crisis is the best way to avoid investigation. Things: “Blown out of proportion”, is the best way to attract attention. ALL politics are guided by this simple formula.

    • Age-ist and sexist. For some reason, though, they think those old codgers are sexy. I’ve never been her fan, but this is beyond the pale. She looks quite young for her age. Sheesh! She is young. 37? If I could only be 37 again … the best years of my life.

    • Watch this story carefully to grok the RACISM inherent in the reporting: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3094063/German-mother-17-oldest-woman-alive-birth-quadruplets-65-years-old.html

      This woman has 17 children from five different fathers. Just gave birth to quadruplets at age 65!! The media (not this UK paper), however, seem to have no problem making moral and ethical JUDGMENTS about HER life and HER choices. The UK story is careful to attribute blame to “mothers” and “doctors”. Somehow, I suppose, it’s okay for THEM to make value judgments about her choices. Why, then, is it different here in the USA, when single mothers of any color, but especially blacks, are celebrated and woe upon the person who DARES to even suggest that they should be more responsible in their choices? Premature babies supported by the public? It’s a DAILY occurrence, so all of our society has skin in this game (no pun intended) and yet, again, woe betide the person who DARES to even suggest that it’s WRONG for 13-year-olds to have children that others must support. Not to mention it’s WRONG to not take advantage of prenatal care, to give birth to premature babies that cost millions to save, and that it’s especially WRONG to risk the lives and future health and well being of those children.

    • Remember: Arquette and Subud. Apropos of nothing. They talk about how Madonna is a victim of unkindness and degrading comments (at 57). Hmmm. One wonders what the same folks say about Diana Ross (b. 1944) and, especially, the beautiful and vital Tina Turner (b. 1939). Tina had no problem holding her own against Mel Gibson. Both Ross and Turner would give Beyonce (who pales in comparison–no pun intended) a run for her money. Funny, seems to me that Halle Berry (b. 1966) gets romantic roles with older men. I guess it’s only PC to discriminate against whiter women.

      • Here’s a class act: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/celebritynews/11625851/Why-Shirley-Bassey-is-horrified-by-todays-pop-stars.html

        ” Dame Shirley Bassey lives a solitary, almost mysterious life of luxurious semi-exile, earned over six decades of stardom, and sweetened by a rare ability to speak out when it matters. Last week, Shirley’s attention was caught by the phenomenon of female singers wearing revealing outfits at galas and premieres. The Dame did not approve.

        “It is like they are all in competition with each other,” she said. “Who can wear the skimpiest outfit? I mean come on. These young girls are talented singers, they don’t need that, but they feel they have to be in competition to have the least covering. That’s the saddest thing.”

        It was duly pointed out that Shirley, 78, had spent most of her career in a fleshy haze of sequins and boas. Yet the difference wasn’t hard to spot. Her targets – identified as the likes of Beyoncé and Rihanna – strip off to attract attention, and because their agents tell them to. Shirley’s stage outfits speak precisely to the mood, tone and mischief of her songs. …”

  9. Apparently now one needs an “Unconcealed Carry Permit” for pressure cookers: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/05/25/one-arrested-after-bomb-squad-checks-suspicious-vehicle-near-us-capitol/

    Oh, I’m positive that they smelled gas. Yep. Either the rattletrap’s gas tank leaked or they smelled the residual propane from the tank the guy used for his food truck. I’ve seen and read multiple stories but FOX is the only one that reported this:

    “Sources told Fox News that the pressure cooker may have been part of a propane tank used in a food truck.”

    The media prefer to keep us in a state of constant fear. Whatever you do, don’t take a pressure cooker to the next church potluck. You may find your car destroyed and your lunch detonated.

    There was a similar bogus “scare” in St. Louis, MO, recently. Someone left canisters that hold CO2 (possibly for use in beverage dispensers, iirc) in the doorways at City Hall. There was minute-by-minute news coverage of the cops blowing up these cylinders as well as a backpack that seemed to contain papers. VERY CONVENIENTLY, the video cameras that allegedly exist to protect and secure CITY HALL and all its resident politicians, failed to capture anything that would identify the culprits who left the cylinders on the stairs. Oddly enough (or not) the resident politicos seem fine with the fact that the video system doesn’t even work. Allegedly. Hmm. Could it have been “peaceful protesters”?

  10. OK, this is now on the verge of serious,

    DEBKAfile Exclusive Report
    May 24, 2015, 10:57 PM (IDT)

    Columns of ISIS tanks and armored cars (made in the US and taken booty in Iraq) were heading Sunday, May 24, from Palmyra for the Jordanian border, with no Syrian troops in sight to block their advance, debkafile reports exclusively. Their initial target is the eastern section of the border, including the meeting point between the Syrian, Jordanian and Iraqi frontiers. The US maintains 7,000 special operations troops and an air force unit in the Kingdom of Jordan. President Barack Obama must decide how they react to an ISIS invasion. More>

    Obama will not react – he is on their side,
    From Jordan to Israel is an hour.
    Will Israel allow it’s demise,
    they have already said “never again”
    I’m thinking I know what that means.

    As the traitor in chief said, elections have consequences,
    yes they do. You elect a traitor to cause the demise of the free world and it is now getting very close to a big confrontation,

    How do you stop 30,000 zealots who want to die?
    With nukes.

    Stand by

    • And this is just a coincidence: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2015/05/obamas-palestinian-peace-partners-call-for-terror-attacks-against-israel/

      ” Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction marked “Nakba” day – signifying the “catastrophe” of the establishment of the modern state of Israel – by calling for terrorism to destroy Israel and conquer the state as the “only” way.

      In a post on the official Facebook page of Fatah on May 14 in time for Nakba day, translated and revealed by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) on Sunday, a message read, “what was taken by force can only be regained by force, the 67th anniversary of the Nakba.”

      The words accompanied an image showing the number 67 in Arabic numerals, with the digit 7 formed out of an image of a key indicating the “keys” to Arab homes allegedly taken by Israel, along with a rifle, and a map showing the entire state of Israel, including both sides of the 1949 Armistice lines. This, despite Fatah’s ambiguous statements indicating apparent support for a two-state solution. …”

    • “Infected with depravity, everything coming out of the Democratic Party is rooted in lies and political deception. They assault us daily with new attempts to repeal our God-given freedoms and force their anti-God agenda down our throats. This ain’t my dad’s Democratic Party. When did the Democratic Party leadership sell its soul to the devil?”

      So true. Here are some examples.

      http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2015/05/nice-dem-rep-alan-grayson-posts-fck-the-police-on-tweet/

      “Democratic Representative Alan Grayson posted a tweet with a “F*ck the police” sign on it. …”

      Note: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2015/05/war-on-cops-third-white-police-officer-shot-dead-this-week/

      “A Rio Rancho police officer was shot and killed late Monday night. Police identified the officer Tuesday as Gregg Benner. Officer Brenner is a 49-year-old Air Force veteran who had been with the department about four years. He is survived by his wife and five adult children. (KOAT)

      Officer Brenner is the third white police officer shot dead this week.

      Officer Kerrie Orozco was shot dead in Omaha on Wednesday. Officer Kerrie Orozco was shot dead Wednesday by Marcus D. Wheeler, a 26 year-old black male, in Omaha.

      On Sunday Officer James Bennett, Jr. was shot and killed in New Orleans. According to his friend, Bennett was working on an outreach program for the communities where he patrolled. Bennett, Jr. was shot dead in his cruiser Sunday morning. The car was found still in ‘drive” when they found the officer. …”

      Note: Day three and according to my local paper, Officer Orozco’s murder is still not “news”. I haven’t seen the other two murders mentioned in the paper, either. Just like with the knockout king “games” happening all across the country, the media IGNORE these incidents lest they feed the original sin of racism that they just know all WHITES suffer from. They refuse to report this because they fear white anger. What? Do they think whites will riot?

      Another example: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2015/05/daily-beast-reporter-cyber-stalks-religious-conservative-on-memorial-day-with-gay-porn-photo/

      “On Memorial Day, Olivia Nuzzi, a reporter with the Daily Beast, posted a photo to Twitter directed toward a religious conservative of two half-naked men engaged in a sexual act captioned with the message, “happy holidays!” … [She also] wrote a harshly critical article about Fischer for the Daily Beast that was published on July 20, 2014.

      Two days before the article was published, Nuzzi sexually harassed Fischer on Twitter …”

      EVIL.

    After reading this it appears the mass arrests have nothing to do with the charges but all with keeping the witnesses (170 of them) on lock down so can not talk before the “correct” story is formulated. It is not about being part of a “conspiracy to kill” or guilt by association. It is all about silencing those that would speak.

    • It’s so fascinating, isn’t it? I mean, where are the MASS ARRESTS associated with the long, on-going “peaceful protests” across the country. There were NO MASS ARRESTS when Ferguson and Baltimore were BURNING. Yes, nobody died (that we know about) but millions of dollars in property damage was perpetrated. I read an alternate theory that the did the mass arrests because it was the only way to find the time to sort out the perps from the innocents. If they hadn’t arrested them all, then some would have gone their merry way, not to be found easily again. Of course, that’s NOT something that seems, to me, to be compatible with the US Constitution. There’s no EVIDENCE of any conspiracy that I can see or that was even presented to the judge, other than that they wore similar gang symbols and attire. Well, so do the Crips and the Bloods. Are they ALL arrested en masse? Nope.

    • WACO, again, btw. There was another HUGE departure from Constitutional principles under a previous DemoncRAT POTUS, as you recall. Whatever anyone thinks of the Branch Davidians, the authorities incinerated children for the alleged “crimes” of their parents.

  13. Off subject, but just so it’s not forgotten I must reiterate here , so the topic of Elizabeth Ann Duke does not smolder into oblivion that : Ms Elizabeth Ann Duke, a common criminal/domestic terrorist/wanted on the FBI list, who’s hiding in plain sight in Nairobi Kenya, depending on what or who is spinning the stories.
    I just want to keep people abreast that may visit your “We The People” site that we know who she is and where she is, .So much has changed since I discovered this and notice Mark hasn’t been running around making a splash touting his book Cultures” lately and Malik….have you heard anything from him lately? Probably not. I went to Mark’s Facebook and so interesting, for a guy who is all about his foundation for the poor and his books and all about himself really…..so interesting that his Facebook page is all about OBAMA…..all pictures of Obama…..That’s really weird. Go figure. Then of course there’s Lisa Wixon , who delivered up many photos of herself and her friend Mark Obama, now she hasn’t one smidgen of evidence that she ever knew him or anybody else for that matter. Go figure….did someone tell her to cool it? To erase all traces of her relation to Mark???? Then I have found more places in Texas(along with New York and Arizona)where Mrs Nidesand resides with various people of mostly Spanish decent. Of course when you search for Ms. Nidesand you must know the combination of names to search for her….but it’s her, however she’s age 37 years old (the age of her son Joseph or Dora Zepeda Ndesandjo)….which is not that odd seeing that Mrs. Ruth Ndesandjo’s Facebook page has her from San Antonio and age of her son as well. Stranger things have and are happening. Just remember you heard it from me.
    Now Ms. Trowbridge claims Obama is the grandson of Hitler!!!! So what does that tell ya???? I knew she was a spy/a dummy, if you will ,to throw people off the truth…..her website name should tell people what she is really about “A Terrible Truth” happens to be a tittle or statement made in one of the domestic terrorist’s writings who was incarcerated and wrote many articles including an autobiography.
