Last World War II veteran leaves Congress

For the first time in 70 years, no World War II veteran will be sitting in the House of Representatives or in the Senate when 114th Congress convenes Jan. 3, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens.

Michigan’s John Dingell, 88, and 91-year-old Ralph Hall, of Texas, were the last of what’s known as the Greatest Generation to serve.

Dingell, a Democrat, enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1944, when he turned 18, and rose to the rank of second lieutenant. He was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1955 and holds the distinction of being the longest-serving member of Congress.

Navy Lieutenant Hall, a Republican, joined in 1942 and was an aircraft carrier pilot. He was elected to the House in 1980 and has held his seat for 17 terms.

“World War II, as awful as it was, broke down tons of barriers,” veterans’ advocate Seth Lynn, director of the independent Veterans Campaign, told the association. Those who served, developed a “camaraderie that lasted for the rest of their lives.”

Hall said the bond held firm among members of Congress who served in the Great War.

“When we differed on the issues, we respected each other and chose to respectfully disagree,” he told the association. “That was part of our military training and experience.”

Daniel New (“For a couple of years the country was in an uproar and the name of Army Specialist Michael New was a household name, because he was the lone soldier who said, “No, thank you, I am an American soldier, and you do not have the right to force me to serve a foreign power against my will.” For his efforts, Spc. New became an American hero, and was awarded a Bad Conduct Discharge from the Army.”) ~ — German General to Command US Troops

By Daniel NewSeptember 12, 2014NewsWithViews.comNATO recently placed a German officer in command of all European troops, including US troops, something that has never happened before.

Here’s the story: “Brig. Gen. Markus Laubenthal, most recently the commander of Germany’s 12th Panzer Brigade in Amberg, and chief of staff of Regional Command North, International Security Assistance Force Afghanistan, will be stationed at USAREUR headquarters, Wiesbaden, Germany.

“This is a bold and major step forward in USAREUR’s commitment to operating in a multinational environment with our German allies,” Lt. Gen. Donald Campbell Jr., USAREUR commander, said of Laubenthal’s appointment. “U.S. and German senior military leaders have been serving together in NATO’s International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan for years. Sustaining the shared capability from this experience will benefit both U.S. and German armies.”[1]Americans do not like the idea of foreign commanders over US troops.

New Army Manual Calls for the Use of Lethal Force Against Peaceful Protesters

New Army Manual Calls for the Use of Lethal Force Against Peaceful Protesters 18 Aug, 2014 by Dave Hodges Print this article Font size -16+CSS Offical-New-Logo2

The new Army manual, known as ATP 3-39.33, provides discussion and techniques about civil disturbances and crowd control operations that occur in the continental United States CONUS and outside the continental United States OCONUS. This document, just published this past Friday, August 15, 2014, promises to change the way the “authorities” deal with protesters, even peaceful ones.

The consequences of ATP 39.33 could prove deadly for protesters. Further, the provisions of this Army manual could prove to be the end of the First Amendment right to peaceably assemble. Army-CivilDisturbances-2014On August 15, 2014, the U.S. Army published and released the Army-Civil Disturbances Manual-2014.

The contents are frightening and should be offensive to American citizen. In section 1-2., the manual states that “Civil unrest may range from simple, nonviolent protests that address specific issues, to events that turn into full-scale riots“. This section of the manual clearly states that protesting is a right protected by the Constitution.

Notice Of Complaint To The Army Inspector General

blueunicorn6 | 15 July 2014 | blueunicorn6Posted on 7/15/2014, 1:06:03 PM by blueunicorn6I hereby file a complaint with The Office of The Inspector General, Department of the Army, that a standard of The United States Army has been violated. I believe that the treatment of Bowe Bergdahl violates the standards found in Army Regulation 630-10. I believe that he is not being treated the same as every other Soldier in The United States Army. As you know, you are required by regulation and oath to investigate every complaint you receive, even those “overheard at a cocktail party”. You are also aware that, when possible, you shall provide notice of receipt of the complaint in a timely manner.

July 2, 2014 8 comments

US has had plan to undermine Mideast’The United States Army, operating from a secret base in Arizona, has declared war on independent media through hacking, blocking communications and sabotaging radio broadcasts. Computer security teams working with Veterans Today traced a pattern of attacks to Fort Huachuca, headquarters of the US Army Intelligence School.This base, in the tiny town of Sierra Vista, Arizona, just north of the Mexican border, is home, not only to this spying operation but also to America’s drone program as well. Every drone attack begins there, with “pilots” trained at Fort Huachuca and drones developed and tested there.

Brace for it: U.S. Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl on a speaking tour to equal the kind of money hauled in by Hillary Clinton’s public speaking engagements.Bergdahl traded by Obama for the release of the Taliban’s five most dangerous members who is “ashamed of America” will grouse his way to fame.If Michelle had a son, he’d sound just like


If Obama had the perfect partner to match his big bad America rants, it would be BB.The perfect fop, all Sgt. Bergdahl really wanted to be was a ballerina, or to sign up for the French Foreign Legion, which rejected him before joining the U.S. Army.“Sgt Bowe Bergdahl studied ballet and attempted to join the French Foreign Legion before joining the US Army.” The Telegraph, June 1, 2014Some guys get parachuted into dangerous territory. Thanks to Obama, Sgt. Bergdahl gets to pirouette his way through life.

I’ve never seen a more disgusting display of presidential abuse of power… nor have I seen such an egregious desecration of the office of the President of the United States.

Every day we hear something more horrifying than the next. Shockwaves shoot through me when I receive news of America being violated yet again. I promise you: the latest transgressions will pierce right through your heart.
