Memorial Day Weekend 2017

This weekend, we remember those who gave their last full measure of devotion so that we may remain free and continue to enjoy the blessings of the greatest Republic this 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.

Memorial Day is designated a day of prayer:

(b) Proclamation.— The President is requested to issue each year a proclamation—
(1) calling on the people of the United States to observe Memorial Day by praying, according to their individual religious faith, for permanent peace;

(3) calling on the people of the United States to unite in prayer at that time; and

The muffled drum’s sad roll has beat
The soldier’s last tattoo’
No more on life’s parade shall meet
That brave and fallen few;
On Fame’s eternal camping ground
Their silent tents are spread;
But Glory guards with solemn round
The bivouac of the dead.

Theodore O’Hara, 1847

Take time out this weekend, while you’re enjoying your days of rest, to remember all those who have gone to their final rest–all who sacrificed their lives so selflessly so that our own lives may be lived in liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

May God bless them all, and their families, and may God continue to bless the United States of America.

  5. Thinking of you Uncle Joby and imagining what life would have looked like had you lived and brought an Aunt and Cousins. Honored to remember you here on WTPOTUS. Love the irony that here we are looking @ Korea straight in the eye again. What a Conflict. RIP Forever. We are so much older than you were then.

    • Condolences on your loss, Papoose. We honor his service tomorrow and every day. RIP.

      It is hard to believe how much older we are than those who gave their lives so that we might live ours out in peace and liberty. God bless them.

  10. What’s with all this stuff about Jared Kushner?
    I mean, we don’t like him anyway so who cares if he gets accused
    by the fbi of some talking to russia thing? Are we supposed to have to defend him so as not to bring down the President?
    I heard he a soros implant.
    I am confused.
    Is that the plan?

    • Your guess is as good as mine. I just read an article somewhere that suggested that the media simply don’t like him, based upon their progressive mindsets: He’s a rich kid, white, got his positions by being related to others (his father, his father-in-law, his wife), and also that some within the WH also don’t like him because (for basically the same reason) he’s only there because he’s who he is not because of what he can do. IOW, they’re jealous so they leak to the media, who hate him anyway so are happy to oblige. There’s nothing wrong with what he did, so far as I can tell (that’s IF he did it, which even Lindsey Graham is doubting). Obama ALSO set up secret meetings via intermediaries BEFORE he was elected in 2008. It’s all innuendo. The truth doesn’t matter, so long as they can IMPLY that he’s treasonous or corrupt. I actually read the word “treason” in an opinion piece yesterday and thought: he ought to sue them for slander. Even IF he did what they claim, it’s NO CRIME and it’s NOT treason. As for being a Soros implant, it’s possible, isn’t it? I don’t dislike him because he’s rich or whatever, but because WE DIDN’T ELECT HIM and I very much doubt he’d have that job if he WEREN’T Ivanka’s husband and if she didn’t have so much power to influence her father (when we didn’t elect her, either). I don’t like that both of them seem too progressive for my taste.

  11. Check this out:

    Another Set Rich murder? Only this time the victim is a federal prosecutor.

    The mainstream media is really getting out in front of the story regarding a federal prosecutor who was looking into DNC voter fraud and possible Florida connections to the murder of Seth Rich.

    In their search engine, Google has listed this story under all MSM major publications.

    The NYT
    The Washington Post
    The Miami Hearld
    ABC News
    Politico

    This is called controlling the narrative. What narrative? Hollywood police spokeswoman Miranda Grossman said Thursday that the body of 37-year-old Beranton J. Whisenant Jr. was found early Wednesday by a passerby on the city’s beach. She said detectives are trying to determine if the death was a homicide, suicide or something else.

    Homicide or suicide? The man’s skull was crushed. There are many stunning facts connected to this case which are discussed in the following video.

    snip————————————————————————————–

    So Jared Kushner is married to Ivanka Trump.
    I suspect this is supposed to be the ultimate posion pill.
    If Jared needs to go, any excuse will do to fire him because
    after all, he is fabuously wealthy and Ivanka will be OK.

  12. http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/back-channel-communication-Jared-Kushner-Vladimir-Putin/2017/05/29/id/792977/

    White House senior aide Jared Kushner wanted to set up a direct line of communication to Russian President Vladimir Putin after Donald Trump won the U.S. election, The New York Times reported.

    Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, spoke with a Russian banker while searching for ways to set up the secret line with Putin, a meeting now being investigated by the FBI and Congress. The Russian banker, Sergey N. Gorkov, is a close associate of Putin’s.

    this makes no sense except:

    Kushner Engaged in False Flag Attack to Bring Down Trump- Deep State Plot Exposed!

    We know that Jared Kushner is running foreign policy. We know that Jared Kushner, pictured here with the his wife the President’s daughter, is interlocked in massive business deals with America’s #1 enemy George Soros. Then why in God’s good name would the Deep State implicate Jared Kushner as an intelligence leak to the Russians? It makes no sense. he is one of them (ie Deep State). The answer, contained in the following video, may surprise you.
    ————————————————————————–snip

    Just fire him. Don’t worry about anything.
    He is a bad guy.
    Get rid of him.
    Don’t fall for the trap of defending the treasonous rat.
    Make up any excuse.
    Maybe he wasn’t nice to someone.
    Who cares?
    He should never have been in the WH.
    Get rid of him.

    • http://www.tmz.com/2017/05/31/barron-trump-thought-donald-beheaded-image-real/

      I have no words. The story speaks for itself. On a day when Kathleen Parker is blaming President Trump for inciting Gianforte’s ALLEGED “body slam” of a reporter, we have to deal with the FACT that this so-called COMEDIAN has terrified young Barron Trump for NO REASON BUT FOR HATE.

      • They’re forgetting, too, the very young grandchildren who also were exposed to this. JUST IMAGINE if someone on the “right” had pulled a similar stunt with Obama as the subject. JUST IMAGINE!

        Another link: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4558522/Trump-says-Kathy-Griffin-ashamed-herself.html

        “Eleven-year-old Barron thought Kathy Griffin’s anti-Trump ‘severed head’ photo shoot was REAL as president calls comedian ‘sick’ and Melania says Griffin’s mental health is questioned by ‘very disturbing’ video. …”

        Not to worry, though. Like all progressives, she “apologized” so now she’s supposed to be free from all repercussions. Forgiveness is only for liberals.

        And let’s not let this dude, TYLER SHIELDS, off the hook. He’s AS COMPLICIT as she is in this HATEFUL TRASH. Secret Service? Where are you? DemoncRATS in Congress. WHERE ARE YOU? Even Chelsea Clinton (who’s probably running for office) criticized this hatred.

        • Oh, btw. Shields is the guy responsible for the severed head of Bush (on a pike) being seen in the background during a Game of Thrones episode. AT THE TIME, the producers CLAIMED there was NO “political intent,” AND YET NOW the same guy “beheads” Trump and we’re probably supposed to believe it was “art” and NOT politics? Again?

        • ~ Pitch ~ ^^^^^ … NOPE the GRIFFIN “DICK” …AGAIN NEVER FUNNY!

          She DIDN’T APOLOGIZE. All she said W A S she Crossed the Line. !!!

          An “ACTUAL” apology would have been made Directly to Trump & not her fans & the media in a effort to save her job. !!!!!!

          • It’s me Kathy Griffin. I sincerely apologize. I’ve just seen the reaction from the images. ??????? WTF WOMAN???? R U NUTS???? ….I’m a comic.
            I crossed the line. I moved the line. Then I crossed it. I went way too far.

            The image was very disturbing… It wasn’t funny. I get it. I made a lot of mistakes in my career. I will continue. I ask for forgiveness. Taking down the image.. And I beg for your forgiveness. …O’SURE KATHY! O’SURE

              • Kathy Griffin Apologizes for Trump Beheading Photo,

                ……. ‘Image Is Way Too Disturbing’

                Kathy Griffin Sorry About Trump Pic …

                It’s Too Disturbing, I’ll Take It Down

                • this is WORSE than the TRUMP HEAD ? I PONDER on…

                  • ~coliseum: ….^^^^^^^
                    & who is she apologizing to? Me? You? Them? How about to the man she did it to—Trump! Avoiding the consequences from her advertisers is not apologizing. More people ARE Splashing in the MUD… without thinking. ?????? …. ha….. While the Outside can be washed up to look Clean, it points to what has Over Time been …. Rotting &….. Decaying
                    on the IN-side……. ……. No ”Bleach Bit” for that! !!!!!

                    IS Anyone keeping count?

                    Kathy the Griffin…. portrays Trump Beheaded….
                    Snoop Dogg…. pretends to Shoot the president in a video…
                    Charlie Sheen….wishes Trump would Die; PRAYS to God that he
                    would die…
                    Deniro….(who I used to really like) wants to Punch the president in
                    the face…
                    But yet WE’RE the party of hate ??? & violence???

                    • Exactly. She should apologize not to her fans who are disappointed in her but to the people who were directly harmed–and that would be the President and his family, especially his children and grandchildren. Even just to apologize to Melania would be a good step. The left is compounding the harm by now criticizing Barron, when they must forget what it’s like to be 11, not to mention the FACT that who among us can even imagine what it must be like to be 11 IN THIS WORLD? He sees the horrors of beheadings, bombings, terrorists on the news every day. How could he not? He is probably quite sheltered, ordinarily, and rightly so. How else can a child process the insane level of hatred spewed out against not only his parents but also his sisters, brothers and brother-in-law? Just the image alone would shock anybody. Imagine seeing your own father portrayed in such a way on TV. The thing is, how the hell does the media justify even SHOWING that image, so that Barron can see it? In addition, they still continue to qualify the insult by saying that Trump asked for it with his own criticism of the media, etc. Did he ever weigh in on this woman (I use the term advisedly) and the photographer?

            • She is a total self-loather. And I can’t blame her. I completely understand KG and I don’t blame you one bit. You are kinda ugly, mighty gross and a third-rate “comic”. (Which a stretch since you’re not even funny.)

              ewww and that voice. Shut up.

            • There was nothing sincere about her apology. She was rolling her eyes as if she couldn’t believe she was forced to do it.

    • I forgot all about that lying, and I wonder how I could because he’s #1 on my corrupt list. HE SPIED ON CONGRESS AND LIED ABOUT IT. So why wouldn’t he lie about what he did under Obama?

    • Did you see how they’re going after Nigel Farage now? A “person of interest.” Well, actually he is a VERY interesting person. We’ve been loving him for years here. 🙂

  13. STUPID as ROCKs ??? …. Surely it’s NOT Rocket Science …
    Katherine Coleman Goble JOHNSON … was AMAZING & BLACK

    • Sad, sad state of affairs. There’s no doubt that the teachers, parents, and the progressive administrators are to blame for this “unequal outcome.” There are no standards and even when someone tries to institute any, they are routinely flouted. TEACHERS STAND DOWN. No discipline–no learning.

  14. “Common Core” should be called “Common Corpse.” ..^^^^^
    It’s an offshoot of “No Child’s Behind Left.”
    Shame on the producers of those programs.

    • What a jerk. He claims he was only criticizing those who USE Barron’s reaction for political gain. They always have a ready rationalization to use. Someone should design a progressive 8-ball just for them. Every side reveals an excuse for their stupidity. “White privilege made me do it.” “Yes, but Trump asked for it.” Etc.

  15. ~ Amorphous Wendy Luckie •
    Write Barron a reassuring letter: …??? POSTCARDS might B BEST!
    Master Barron Trump

    Mine’s in the mail. …^^^^
    Be straight with the boy; tell him an evil world hates him, but that his father & the rest of US are standing UP against them. Tell him you pray for him. He is a sheltered, young Christian child.

    Hey Barron … WE March forward over the bags of CRAP! Left foot Right
    foot … as what they say & do …… ARE TAINTED WORDS & ACTIONS
    Yes, they will pay a PRICE for the stupidity .. In the mean TIME & in Between TIME…. WE LIVE HAPPY ~ JOYOUS & FREE … that WE ARE NOT THEM!
    BLESS us ALL …. especially the sick of MIND BODY & SOUL …

  16. Donald Trump Hearing from ‘A Lot of People, Both Ways’ on Paris Climate Agreement …
