Global Warming Is It ‘Settled’ Science ???

“Besides, if global warming is settled science, like gravity or the Earth not being flat, why isn’t the agreement 100 percent? And since when is science settled by a survey or a poll? The hallmark of a good scientific theory is its ability to make good predictions.”

Former NASA Scientist Dispels Notion Global Warming Is ‘Settled’ Science
Posted By Michael Bastasch
51A former NASA climate scientist has put out a new report criticizing the argument that global warming is settled science.
“It should be clear that the science of global warming is far from settled,” said Dr. Roy Spencer, a former NASA scientist who now co-runs a major satellite temperature dataset at the University of Alabama-Huntsville.
“Uncertainties in the adjustments to our global temperature datasets, the small amount of warming those datasets have measured compared to what climate models expect, and uncertainties over the possible role of Mother Nature in recent warming, all combine to make climate change beliefs as much faith-based as science-based,” Spencer wrote in a report published by the conservative Texas Public Policy Foundation.
“Until climate science is funded independent of desired energy policy outcomes, we can continue to expect climate research results to be heavily biased in the direction of catastrophic outcomes,” Spencer wrote.
Spencer’s report covers a wide swath of climate science topics from the factors behind global warming, to how scientists make adjustments to climate data, to the “97 percent” consensus figure often cited by politicians and environmentalists.
 “Besides, if global warming is settled science, like gravity or the Earth not being flat, why isn’t the agreement 100 percent?” Spencer asked. “And since when is science settled by a survey or a poll? The hallmark of a good scientific theory is its ability to make good predictions.”
“From what we’ve seen, global warming theory is definitely lacking in this regard,” Spencer wrote.
Spencer also explained why climate models tend to over-predict how much warming will occur as greenhouse gas emissions rise. Spencer argues a warming bias is built into the models themselves.
“Since climate models can be ‘tuned’ to produce a rather arbitrary amount of warming, they were tuned to be ‘sensitive’ enough so increasing carbon dioxide alone was sufficient to cause the observed warming,” he wrote.
“It was assumed that there was no natural component of the warming, since we really don’t know the causes of natural climate variations,” he wrote. “As a result, none of the models were prepared for the global warming “hiatus” we have experienced since about 1997, because their climate sensitivity was set too high. The models continued to warm after 2000, while the real climate system essentially stopped warming.”
Indeed, Spencer’s satellite data, which measures the average temperature of the lowest few miles of the atmosphere, showed no significant global warming trend for more than 21 years before an incredibly powerful El Nino warming event hit late last year.
El Nino is a naturally occurring warming of the tropical Pacific Ocean and tends to warm the planet. Satellite temperatures are extremely sensitive to El Ninos (and La Nina cooling events), so mid-tropospheric readings spiked in early 2016.
But temperatures have come down after El Nino faded, and now it looks like a La Nina is setting in. Some even expect the so-called “hiatus” in global warming to return after this year’s La Nina ends.

There's a story behind every picture...

...wait for it!

Just letting a little steam off…
There’s an underlying problem in that die-hard party members (By this I mean both the Democrat and Republican parties as they are known in the United States …other parties are of lessor importance at this moment in time.) either refuse to believe or they are totally ignorant with a built in stubbornness that prevents rational thought to prevail.

Take for example the fact that Barack Hussein Obama was (or is) a member of the Communist Party; this was very widely known by both Democrats and Republicans prior to Obama ascending to the presidency in 2009.  If you listen to the speeches of past presidents you would think that the American political mind-set was to defeat communism…John F. Kennedy was adamant about this…as were others, but not William Jefferson Clinton or Obama; they cherish the underlying goals of communism.  But why do not the voters reflect this anti-American sentiment when they go to the polls?
Now at this point I’ll depart from commenting any further on the womanizer, rapist, lying Clinton for he’s water under the bridge.  You die-hard Democrats don’t like that last remark but you know it’s true.  And you will never openly admit it…it’s that built in stubbornness that I mentioned above.
Now since Barack Hussein Obama has arrived to continue with the Communist’s struggle to overwhelm the rest of us into submission to government rule, vis-à-vis, we-the people rule.  C’mon now, everybody knows this!   How often has Obama said, “If Congress doesn’t act, I will.”?  If that ain’t a dictator wanna-be speaking, I don’t know what is! You die hard Republicans like that last remark because you know it’s true.  But there’s the rub!
During the entire term (both terms) of the Obama administration there is not much in the way an individual (that’s you and me) can honestly say has aided in the overall betterment of the United States as a country of free people…things have progressively gotten worse in all areas; health care, employment, military, transportation, education, wages, prices or whatever!  How did it go from bad to worse?  Especially when the Republicans got to control both houses of congress in Obama’s second term!  The answer is simple.  The Republicans gave Obama everything he wanted.  There’s barely a soul (maybe one or two) in both houses that have the intestinal fortitude to prevent Obama’s rampage on our Constitutional and inalienable rights.
Obama has claimed that he has brought the country closer together but if anyone believes that, I’ve got some ocean front property in Arizona for sale.   The country is more divided now that at almost any point in our history with the exception of the Civil War period…but we’re getting closer to reaching that point…any further discussion on that last remark would take another page or two so I’ll drop it for now.
So what Obama has accomplished as far as any semblance of unison goes, he has united the Democrats and Republicans…else why did only Democrat legislation, suggested or otherwise, get the president’s signature when Republicans had the opportunity stop it.  That first line in this paragraph needs some clarification…Obama has united the Democrat and Republican politicians…not the people at large. The people have been left by the wayside.  The people who still claim to be a D or an R will still argue among each other but the guys running the show carry the big C in their pocket. There’s a list of 45 declared goals of the Communist Party.  Number 15 on that list reads, “Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States”.  Obama has certainly crossed that hurdle of ‘one’ but the people haven’t been watching the race.
Before I close this catharsis I would ask any Republican or Democrat just where do you think the country is going to from this moment in time…most of you voted (maybe most?) for somebody or something… Did you get what you voted for?  Did you ever wonder who’s really winning in the long run?  I’ll tell you the answer.  In the long run, the Communists are winning.  The Communists are the only ones hanging out there with the not so peaceful protests carrying all those Communist printed signs.  If you thought for a moment that the individual protestors made up their own signs you’re denser than previously thought.  All those professionally printed signs are provided by the Communist Party, the same party that supports one of its most famous members; Barack Hussein Obama.  Now Mr. ‘O’ has not come right out and said it, but his supporting party has clearly stated their near and long term goals.  Here’s what they say in their lead-in explanation for their constitution: “In order to bring this new socialist state into being, it would be necessary to thoroughly defeat, dismantle and abolish the capitalist-imperialist state of the USA.”
And so when their soon to be completed Constitution replaces our U.S. Constitution you can kiss your red, white, and blue banner of freedom good-bye  only you won’t have to salute Hillary Clinton…she’ll want you to kiss her ass. ~ Norman E. Hooben

America Has It's Problems...maybe it's you!

Should the Christian flag be banned?

Everyone has heard about the controversy over the Confederate flag flying above the SC Capital building, but have you heard about the recent uproar over the Christian flag?  
In the town of Cochran, GA, city officials decided to fly the Christian flag at city hall to promote a local Bible-reading marathon.  While the town residents were very supportive of the initiative, it wasn't long before the politically correct police rode into town. 
The Americans United for Separation of Church and State organization sent letters to the city and county officials claiming that the flag was a violation of the First Amendment, and demanded that it be taken down.
Unfortunately, the small town officials caved under the pressure and threat of legal action from the powerful D.C.-based organization. The flag was taken down, and the city has promised to only fly the U.S. And state flags at city hall.

Climate Change ...a saintly view

There’s a line in a song…let’s call it a hymn… The Canticles of the Sun by Marty Haugen that goes like this:
“Praise for the wind that blows through the trees, the seas' mighty storms, the gentlest breeze; they blow where they will, they blow where they please to please the Lord!”
Probably most people don’t know Marty, and they probably have never heard the hymn unless they’re regular church goers.  But something else that has a high probability of not being known by even the faithful.
The original “The Canticles of the Sun” was written by none other than Saint Francis of Assisi back around the year 1225…long before there was much talk about climate change.  But Francis knew all about climate change and it had nothing to do with anthropological change…the effect that humans have on the weather.  The mighty storms, the gentlest breeze; they blow where they please…these are all elements of climate change…they blow where they please!  Humans have nothing to do with it!  Saint Francis…being a saint and all, knew that climate change was due to the Lord; and I wholeheartedly agree with his assessment.
Moving right along the chronological ladder we have headlines like this:
Poll: Fewer Brits Believe Humans Cause Global Warming July 18, 2016

Well we could go on and on with the headline thing but what gets me is the stupidity of the American people when they believe an Obama when he makes a speech about climate change in front of the West Point graduating class stating that climate change is the most important thing affecting our national security.  What a crock! 
Most of us who believe in rational thought have figured out the climate change hoax many moons ago.  In fact I, me, Norman E ! had torn holes in TIME magazine’s book on climate change that was so full of erroneous information that I don’t think you can find it on the book shelves any longer.
What prompted me to write this blog was the headline over at American Thinker, Britain Closes Down Global Warming Bureaucracy, and since it took this long for the Brits to figure out that all this talk about climate change is nothing but one huge fraud, I wondered how much longer it would take the Americans to figure out that Obama, Kerry, Clinton, and all their ilk who preach the climate fraud school of thought were nothing but sinners... The worst kind of fraud!  I don’t think St. Francis was much of a sinner, else why would they canonize him a saint. 
Now who would you believe a saint…or a sinner? ~ Norman E. Hooben

What if...

Letters from...

Think, all of this in less than 8 years – just think about it!!!
Before Obama, there was virtually no outlandish presence of Islam in America.
• All of a sudden, Islam is taught in schools. Christianity and the bible are banned in schools.
• All of a sudden we must allow prayer rugs everywhere and allow for Islamic prayer in schools, airports and businesses.
• All of a sudden we must stop serving pork in prisons
• All of a sudden, we are inundated with lawsuits by Muslims who are offended by American culture.
• All of a sudden we must allow burkas to be worn everywhere even though you have no idea who or what is covered up under them.
• All of a sudden Muslims are suing employers and refusing to do their jobs if they personally deem it conflicts with Sharia Law.
• All of a sudden the Attorney General of the United States vows to prosecute anyone who engages in “anti-Muslim speech”.
• All of a sudden, Jihadists who engage in terrorism and openly admit they acted in the name of Islam and ISIS, are emphatically declared they are NOT Islamic by our leaders and/or their actions are determined NOT to be terrorism, but other nebulous terms like ‘workplace violence.”
• All of a sudden, it becomes Policy that Secular Middle East dictators that were benign or friendly to the West, must be replaced by Islamists and the Muslim Brotherhood.
• All of a sudden our troops are withdrawn from Iraq and the middle east, giving rise to ISIS.
• All of a sudden, America has reduced its nuclear stockpiles to 1950 levels, as Obama’s stated goal of a nuke-free America by the time he leaves office continues uninterrupted.
• All of a sudden, a deal with Iran must be made at any cost, with a pathway to nuclear weapons and HUNDREDS of BILLIONS of dollars handed over to fund their programs.
• All of a sudden America APOLOGIZES to Muslim states and sponsors of terror worldwide for acts of aggression, war and sabotage THEY perpetrate against our soldiers.
• All of a sudden, the American Navy is diminished to 1917 Pre-World War I levels of only 300 ships. The Army is at pre-1940 levels. The Air Force scraps 500 planes and planned to retire the use of the A-10 Thunderbolt close air support fighter. A further drawdown of another 40,000 military personnel is in progress.
• All of a sudden half of our aircraft carriers are recalled for maintenance by Obama rendering the Atlantic unguarded, NONE are in the Middle East.
• All of a sudden Obama has to empty Guantanamo Bay of captured Jihadists and let them loose in Jihad-friendly Islamic states. He demands to close the facility.
• All of a sudden America will negotiate with terrorists and trade FIVE Taliban commanders for a deserter and Jihad sympathizer.
• All of a sudden there is no money for American poor, disabled veterans, jobless Americans, hungry Americans, or displaced Americans but there is endless money for Obama’s “Syrian refugee” resettlement programs.
• All of sudden there is an ammunition shortage in the USA.
• All of a sudden, the most important thing for Obama to do after a mass shooting by two Jihadists, is disarm American Citizens.
• All of a sudden, the President of the United States cannot attend the Christian Funerals of a Supreme Court Justice and a former First Lady because of previous (seemingly unimportant) commitments.
• All of a sudden the President of the United States won’t attend the funeral of a flag-rank Officer (Gen. Greene) killed in action; he played golf. But he sends a big delegation to Michael Brown’s funeral. He sends a minor delegation to Margaret Thatcher’s funeral. He won’t acknowledge Chris Kyle’s murder but he’ll fly the Flag at half mast for Whitney Houston.
• All of a sudden, I’m sick to my stomach.
I’m not sure the majority of Americans recognize the seriousness of the situation and how much progress” has been made by Islam these last 7 years, a very brief time compared to a 75 year lifetime!
If you agree, be strong enough to at least forward this to a few friends. And Clinton plans on carrying on his practices as well as a few of her own she will strangle us with ...

Tomorrow, I’m going to go 40 over the speed limit until I get pulled over.  Then when I get pulled over, I’m gonna say to the officer “But officer, I had no idea I wasn’t supposed to go that fast.” and then, I’m gonna expect to get let off with a warning.  Why?  Because that is EXACTLY how the feds just handled Hitlery’s email scandal.  Her “intent” wasn’t “ill” so therefore, she gets off with no punishment whatsoever.  I think this country is no longer a nation of laws, therefore, none should apply to us anymore. 

I won’t REALLY drive 40 over the speed limit – that was simply an example I used of the chaos we saw today.  Some people might see my speeding as a minor offense that should be let go – just as some see Hitlery’s email scandal is a minor offense.  Tell the mother who’s child was run over by someone who was speeding it’s a minor offense, you will see the exact same outrage the right is seeing about this today.

Because of this corruption today, I have to bite the bullet now and vote for Trump.  I just feel I have to.  Consider it my last ditch effort to save this nation from complete disastrous monarchy takeover by insane and senseless liberals.  I know that God’s will is gonna be done anyhow – and I have been preaching for quite some time that this nation is under God’s judgment.  Despite this, I’m still compelled now to go vote – because this corruption, this greed, this insanity is too much.  I threw my gloves down today.  I can’t take it anymore.

Voting Trump is like a box of chocolates; you never what you’re gonna get.  However, I’d rather throw the dice on that than accept a box of turds disguised as chocolate.  Yes, this is how passionate I am over this today.

For those of you who believe Hitlery had no ill intent, or that she didn’t really “KNOW” she wasn’t supposed to use those servers for her email, I’d like to remind everyone of when she stated publicly – “well I’m not the ONLY one who does this.”  She KNEW what she was doing was wrong, she DID have intent – intent to undermine the laws of our nation.  She openly admitted since the other kids were kicking sand in the eyes of others that it was OK for her to do also.

This is what the left has done….this is complete dishonesty, it’s complete incompetence, and this has just now become a much LARGER scandal than ever before.  How much did Comey get paid for this?  What was REALLY said between Bill and Loretta Lynch (mob)?  What role did Obama play in all of this?

This situation caused more division in this country than we had yesterday – Independence day of all things – where our founding fathers fought to get away from the same garbage we are seeing happening in America today.

I hope you all are outraged.  I hope you all are looking into this story very closely.  I hope you all are considering the implications of a vote for Hitlery.  She has become untouchable and if we can’t hold our officials responsible – THE PEOPLE WE TAXPAYERS PAY – then we all deserve to sink with this Titanic.  We all deserve what we get.

Open your eyes my fellow American’s.  The countdown is on.  Do what you must, but do it wisely.
Father – we pray for this sinking and falling nation.  We pray for Your guidance, Your mercy, Your comfort in these darkening days.  I pray for more saved in Your Holy Name Jesus – Amen.
Peace to you all and may the Lord guide us all to His will and let our hearts be focused on Him.  Jesus is gonna be around long after this nation has gone – make sure your priorities are in the right place.
‘Nuff said.

From Bonnie McConnell

This Director of the FBI James Comey has been a traitor all his life. He is an enemy of the United States.

Remember Whitewater? 20 years ago James Comey as an attorney on the Senate Whitewater Investigation was looking into the conduct of President Bill Clinton and first lady Hillary Clinton.
The investigation was to determine whether Bill Clinton used his political position as governor of Arkansas (in the 1980s) to push through an illegal loan to benefit Bill and Hillary's business partner in Whitewater.
Several people involved in Whitewater went to jail, but no criminal prosecution was in the cards for Bill and Hillary. Remember James Comey was the Deputy Special Counsel for the Whitewater investigation....
In Christopher Anderson's book, American Evita: Hillary Clinton's Rise to Power, Anderson gives details of the New Square offenders pardon by Bill Clinton (who had been convicted of bilking the government of $30 million dollars).
Christopher Anderson relates that at Hillary's urging Bill gave clemency to 16 Puerto Rican terrorists who took the lives of 16 Americans and wounded many others.
Anderson tell us that Hillary admired the Marxist Carl Oglesby and Saul Alinsky. It is from her admiration for Saul Alinsky that she formed her belief that "the only way to make a real difference is to acquire power."
The pardon of billionaire Marc Rich (who traded illegally with America's enemies including Iran) by President Bill Clinton was something that everyone knew reeked of impropriety after learning that Rich's wife donated $450,000 to the Clinton Library.
Again James Comey oversaw investigations of the pardon matters as well. Unbelievably James Comey did not recommend charging the Clintons in any of these matters.
And let's not forget that Loretta Lynch was appointed to Federal Judge by Bill Clinton himself during his administration. Therefore, Lynch and Comey had no business ever going anywhere near this investigation. The conflict of interests is so deep here it ain't even funny.
James Comey is a criminal and a traitor. He has illegally covered for the Clintons by obstructing justice every time he had the chance. Now that he has conspired with others (Obama, Lynch, the Clintons, all of their aides and counselors) to obstruct justice in an investigation into high treason, he is now complicit and should be charged with conspiracy to commit treason along with the others.
Wouldn't it be fair and balanced to give news coverage to these facts? We are not dealing with singularities here. There were never any threats made, no political jockeying. This was the plan all along. This is a criminal syndicate that has been running our government for the better part of 4 decades.
And there is only one way to deal with people like this. Remember the movie, The Untouchables?Good one!
A well written piece for the confused Hillary supporters out there.
....(1). "When you left the White House after your husband’s last term as president, why did you steal $200,000.00 worth of furniture, china, and artwork? And why did you tell the public that you ‘returned it’ when you only brought back $27,000 of it?
(2). Mrs. Clinton, when you were Secretary of State, why did you solicit contributions from foreign governments, (muslim princes donated multi-millions and got favors in return) for the Clinton Foundation after you promised President Obama you would not?
(3). Mrs. Clinton, why do you and your husband claim to contribute millions of dollars to charity for a tax write off when it goes directly into your Clinton Foundation which only gives out 10% of the funds to charitable purposes and you pocket the balance to support yourself tax free? What does your daughter Chelsea do there for her 3 million dollar yearly salary?
(4). Mrs. Clinton, why are you unable to account for 6 billion dollars of State department funds that seem to have disappeared while you were Secretary of State?
(5). Mrs. Clinton why did you say you were broke when you left the White House, but purchased a 5 million home, built an addition for the secret service, and charge the tax payers of the United States $15,000.00 a month for their rent, an amount that pays your the entire mortgage?
(6). Mrs. Clinton why did you lie to the American people about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, but managed to tell the truth to your daughter that same night it happened?
(7). Mrs Clinton were you and your husband disbarred from practicing law? Answer: In 1996, Landmark Legal Foundation filed a complaint asking the court to disbar Hillary Clinton for violating the Arkansas code of conduct, (which requires lawyers to act with honesty and integrity) for her actions in the Whitewater scandal cover up. Hillary’s law license was suspended in 2002 for failing to complete her continuing legal education requirements. Bill Clinton was convicted by a grand jury for perjury and obstruction of justice to which he was impeached by the House of Representatives and disbarred from practicing as an attorney. He has been accused by a dozens of women for rape, sexual assault and sexual harassment. He settled out of court for $850.000 in one case. Hillary has him out on her campaign trail championing for her theme of feminism and "women's rights". What a blasphemy. Neither one has enough integrity to hold onto a law license.
(8). Mrs Clinton, why did you say, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” 56 times while testifying under oath during the Starr investigations.
•(9). Mrs Clinton, what Really happened to Ron Brown when he was about to testify against you and your husband?
(10). Mrs. Clinton what really happened to law partner Vince Foster? No way he committed suicide.
CNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, I know that the answers to any of these questions don’t matter to you, you would support her regardless of whether she was guilty of murder, embezzlement, money laundering, and I could go on and on. The Democrat’s and liberal’s moto is, “DON’T CONFUSE ME WITH THE FACTS – MY MIND IS MADE UP.”
Do you really want someone like this running this country? God help us if you do.
Here is why Hillery need not to be in the White House:"If you're under 50 you really need to read this. If you’re over 50, you lived through it,, s o share it with those under 50. Amazing to me how much I had forgotten!When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in a democratic controlled congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts.Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration. Next she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as “my worst mistake.” Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection. When a little probing led to the discovery of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.Many younger votes will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.” Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House.Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the scandal defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle were:She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor. After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr's investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.Hillary’s game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for 'lying under oath' to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.Now we are exposed to the destruction of possibly incriminating emails while Hillary was Secretary of State and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation – we have no idea what shoe will fall next. But to her loyal fans (supporters) - I guess in her own words “what difference does it make?” I guess being a female Democrat is all that matters. By the way, I'd post the same if she were a Republican. You see, she's already been in the White House, she has a record we can review.Hillary for prison 2016 would be a good start to help make America safe again."  ~ Unknown author
Let's spread this letter

 An Open Letter to Khizr Khan July 31, 2016
Posted by Chris Mark in Uncategorized.
Dear Mr. Khan,
I want to preface this letter by stating that I respect your son’s sacrifice for this great nation. By all accounts, he is a true hero that sacrificed himself in service to our country. For that I am thankful.
As a veteran, I watched your comments at the Democratic National Convention with a mixture of sadness, and anger. The United States has a military comprised of volunteers. Every single member has made the conscious choice to join the military and serve. There is not a single service member who has been forced into service. It is important for all service members (and apparently, their families) to understand that service to this great nation does not imbue one with special privileges or rights. I found your comments troubling when you said: “Have you ever been to Arlington cemetery? Go look at the graves of brave patriots who died defending the United States of America. You will see all faiths, genders and ethnicities. You have sacrificed nothing and no one.”
Does it matter whether Mr. Trump has sacrificed “…nothing and no one?”…has Ms. Clinton “..sacrificed” for this nation? How about Mr. Obama? Your comment stating that Mr. Trump “…has sacrifice no one” is alarming. Are you intimating that YOU sacrificed? Sir, your son willingly sacrificed himself. As a father I cannot imagine the pain you must feel but his sacrifice is his own. He was not forced to serve.
I am troubled that you would allow a party that has little more than contempt for the US Service Member to parade you into the DNC to denounce Donald Trump. Did you watch when protesters at the DNC booed and heckled Medal of Honor recipient Capt. Florent Groberg? Did you notice your party interrupting the moment of silence for slain police officers? Your own hypocrisy in not denouncing these acts and instead using the DNC as a platform to make a political point is disgraceful. The simple fact is that whether one served or sacrificed does not give greater power to their statements. One vote is as valuable as another. That sir, is why our Country is great. Your condemnation of one person for a statement while standing idly as your party disparages veterans and police officers is the height of hypocrisy.
To conflate the need to prevent potential terrorists from entering our country with the belief that ‘all Muslims’ should be banned is simply wrong and disingenuous. As a reminder, Mr. Trump said: ” “Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life,” The irony of your son’s own death at the hands of these very people in Iraq should not be ignored. I have little doubt that your son would have recognized the need to protect our country from these very people. In fact, he held is own troops back so that he could check on a suspicious car. Your son understood sacrifice and how to protect “his people”…’his soldiers’….’his fellow Americans’…
As you continue to make the media circuit and bask in the glow of affection cast upon you by a party that has little regard for your son’s own sacrifice, and veterans in general, I would ask you to consider your comments and your position more closely.
