Happy Independence Day, America! What a grateful nation we should be, especially on a day like today. Megyn Kelly had a group of 14 wounded warriors on her show to inspire us all. And to remind us why we are so grateful for the freedoms we have. It is because of men like this that we can celebrate being an American on this beautiful day.
And what better way to remind us all of what others have sacrificed so much for than to share with you the story of one such hero, 1st Lt. Travis Manion USMC. Travis was killed by a sniper in Fallujah while trying to help his fellow Marines stop an enemy ambush. The Travis Manion Foundation was created in his honor, and was initially run by his mother Janet, who recently succumbed to her battle with Stage 4 lung cancer. Travis’ sister, Ryan, however picked up the mantle and continues to run the foundation. Chris Wallace interviewed her as this week’s Fox News Sunday “Power Player of the Week.”
I urge you to visit the Foundation website and read all the stories there, watch the videos, and contribute if you can. God bless our warriors who fight and are willing to die for us unconditionally.
Now this is what a TRUE leader sounds like. h/t Breitbart TV:
This is the FULL speech, and it truly deserves your rapt attention. Turn everything else off and pay attention. More is being said between actual spoken words that our “Dear Leader” will never get. Bibi is laying down the gauntlet for what the policies will be, and most patriotic, liberty-loving Americans will get it. Doubtful that “Teh Won” will.
Can we trade Netanyahu for Obama? No, wait… that would be too mean to the Israelis. We’ll just have to stand as a thousand Breitbarts to fight our fight here at home.
One of this country’s best heroes, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, appeared on Bill O’Reilly tonight not only to promote his new book, “American Sniper,” but to tell the tale of his experiences in the Middle East as the most sucessful American sniper, as well as his convictions of his accomplishments. He not only performed so well to save the lives of his fellow military men & women, but also the innocent Iraqi men, women and children, against what he calls (as well as most others do) “savages;” savages who would rape, murder, and torture their fellow countrymen and women in the name of their “god.”
I think Bill O was a bit out of line in his questioning of Kyle, pressing him on his conviction that what he had done was the right thing. In the end, however, Kyle acquitted himself quite well for this interview.
You don’t agree with Kyle? Sucks to be you, but he did what his country asked him to do, and I think he did an out-freaking-STANDING job as a SEAL. America is a safer country because of men like him.
