SEAL Who Shot Bin Laden Has A Message For You On The Fourth Of July

This is what makes America “America.”

Published

Robert O’Neill, the Navy Seal who had the pleasure of taking out the biggest mass murderer in U.S. history, Osama Bin Laden, has a message for all us Americans on this 4th of July holiday season.

Here is what he had to say via Fox News:

“Since I was a young boy, the Fourth of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. I grew up in the Rocky Mountains in Butte, Montana, where hot summer days are the exception rather than the rule, but you could usually count on sunshine and a lot of people out on the street for the Independence Day Parade. We would also cram the local parks the night before for the big fireworks display. On the third of July. Yes, the third – Butte will not pass up the opportunity to start the party early.

I celebrated Independence Day 2013 in Boston, the first after the Boston Marathon bombing. From the Esplanade to Fenway Park, flags were everywhere and patriotism was in the air. I’ve also spent Independence Day in Afghanistan. In Iraq. Places where flags and freedom are in short supply.

What are we celebrating? Our independence from British rule and our nation’s sovereignty? Not one person reading this has ever had to rebel against an unjust monarchy.

Does our nation’s revolutionary spirit of 1776 still ring true in 2018 or has the meaning of the Fourth of July changed? Well America, like freedom itself, is not a destination. It’s a journey. Our freedom, like anything in life, was not handed to us. We had to go out and get it – through unity and action and by seizing the opportunity.

And America is the land of opportunity. But you will need to work for it.

I did not become a Navy SEAL the day after I signed my enlistment papers and I was certainly nobody’s bet to become a member of an elite team. But at every step along the way, positive or negative, another opportunity came along with it.

I couldn’t really swim going into the Navy and SEALs do more swimming than some species of fish. But Butte has a swimming pool and I had an opportunity. I learned. I would have to learn a lot and I would have to spend hours doing lap after lap, but I took the opportunity.

Find your dream and chase it wherever you are. You need to work for it and nothing worth having is going to be handed to you. Except opportunity. America is the land of opportunity.

During SEAL training and particularly Hell Week, I learned what it was like to live with a broken body. I worked harder than I ever had in my life and my memories are not particularly fond. It was a painful opportunity but one that paid off as I became a Navy SEAL, presenting an entirely new career of opportunity and challenge. It was some of the hardest work anyone has ever done. But it was the price I had to pay to achieve the dream I had back home in Butte, Montana.”

O’Neill then continued by giving the example of an old friend, Colt Anderson. Anderson is a nine-year veteran in the NFL and also from Butte. He puts on a huge fundraiser for his Dream Big Foundation which simply encourages kids to find their dream and to believe in their dream while at the same time to work to achieve their dream. It also encourages them to put down their mobile devices.

The retired Navy Seal then went on to explain that Colt is the living embodiment of what it meant to chase down a dream. “He is not what you typically think of when you picture an NFL safety and that’s exactly what has made him a proven leader and even a team captain at one time,” said O’Neill. Colt is a lot smaller than many players at the college level. And he was almost passed by the recruiters because of this. He didn’t let that stop him though, he walked on at the University of Montana and, through the relentless pursuit of his dream, became an All-American.

O’Neill then moved on to explain the life of another friend, John James:

“My friend in Michigan, John James, has had many dreams. Early in his life it was to fly. But nobody just hands a teenager the keys to an Apache helicopter no matter how bright and eager they are. (It’s not until they’re 18 that they’re informed that they don’t really use keys.)

John knew he had to get into West Point if he wanted to fly, so he kept his grades up. He applied and got in. Opportunity. He kept his dream alive and his grades stayed sky-high. He graduated from West Point in 2004 and became a Ranger-qualified aviation officer earning a Combat Action Badge and two Air Medals while serving with distinction in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Upon leaving the army with hundreds of combat hours over Baghdad, John went back home to Michigan to work the family business: James Group International. Another opportunity. He has since become president and led the company from earnings of $35 million to $137 million while creating 100 additional jobs across the country since 2012. But his dreams do not end there. John is a pro-life, pro-second amendment conservative family man whose dream now is to become Michigan’s next senator. And if there’s one thing he’s shown is that he’s willing and ready to work for it.”

This folks is what makes America “America.” A place where you can come out of nowhere and become a president like Obama did in 2009. Or you can overcome adverse conditions and still be an All American Football Player.

Sadly this is what the left doesn’t seem to want to understand, they bitch and moan about those less fortunate, but they don’t understand that if you want, and you work hard for it, anything in our great country is achievable.

Dem Candidate Pushing ‘Irresponsible Breeder’ Tax On Certain Parents Because Of ‘Privilege’

Published

on

Scott Wallace is a multimillionaire running in Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District against current incumbent Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-R). Considered an elite, even amongst the wealthy, he boasts a net worth of between $127 million and $309 million, according to his financial disclosure statement. This would make him the third-richest member of Congress if he were elected to the House today.

From a hardline leftist pedigree, his grandfather was Henry Wallace, the “New Deal visionary” and one-time vice president under former President Franklin D. Roosevelt. His wealth is inherited, stemming from a seed company his grandfather founded that was purchased by DuPont for $10 billion in the 1990s, along with a large number of stocks with the largest being DowDuPont.

His campaign is largely self funded with Wallace claiming he is “putting a significant amount of my own assets into this because this is the most important thing I can imagine doing for America at this point in my life — this is a very expensive district to run in, but it is crucial in the Democrats’ efforts to retake the House.”

But just why this is so incredibly important to Wallace goes beyond the typical party lines of Republican and Democrat. Receiving endorsements from both Planned Parenthood and the National Organization for Women (NOW), Wallace is a population control zealot who believes families who choose to have more than two children are “irresponsible breeders” and should be taxed. Wallace has donated nearly $7 million dollars to various population control groups over the past 20 years, with the majority going through his own Wallace Global Fund.  In addition to its efforts towards population control, the foundation has also reportedly donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to anti-Israel groups that support a boycott of the Jewish State.

Fox News reports:

“Zero Population Growth (ZPG) was among the organizations that received the money from the fund. According to public records, it received $420,000 between 1997 and 2003.

The group, shortly after being founded in 1968, released a brochure advocating abortion to stabilize population growth and claimed that “no responsible family should have more than two children.” To deal with larger families, it also called for families to be “taxed to the hilt” for “irresponsible breeding.”

It also blamed the overpopulation on the ‘white middle-class’ that ‘use up more than their share of resources and do more than their share of polluting‘ and urged them to ‘voluntarily limit their families to two children.’

Paul Ehrlich, who co-founded the ZPG, once called abortion “a highly effective weapon in the armory of population control.” The goal of the organization, which changed its name to Population Connection in 2002, has remained the same since its inception, arguing that the world needs to contain population growth with particular emphasis on American families.

The organization’s political arm, Population Connection Action Fund, publicly endorsed Wallace for Congress, saying his support for their cause is “exactly the kind of dedication we need in Congress.”

Wallace’s fund also gave $20,000 in 2010 to the Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy (CASSE), a group that sees the economic growth as undesirable and instead supports an economy with ‘stable or mildly fluctuating levels’ and a society where birth rates equal death rates.

The organization openly supports zero population growth and its executive board member, Herman Daly, advocated issuing reproduction licenses, allowing women to have only two children unless they buy the license for more children from other women. Daly called it the ‘best plan yet offered’ to limit population growth.”

The group advocates strongly for abortion and along with taxing families “to the hilt” for having more than two children, as noted in a Yale Law School publication about the “voices that shaped the abortion debate before the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court’s ruling.”

The group advocates that –

  1. That no responsible family should have more than two children. Any family wanting to care for more than two children should adopt further children. Adopting children does not increase the population.
  2. All methods of birth control, including legalized abortion, should be freely available—and at no cost in poverty cases.
  3. Irresponsible people who have more than two children should be taxed to the hilt for the privilege of irresponsible breeding.

Fox News continued:

Zoe Wilson-Meyer, communications director for Wallace’s campaign, didn’t answer Fox News’ questions on whether Wallace still supports the ideas expressed by the groups.

“The Wallace Global Fund has for decades been a leader in helping women gain access to family planning. Former Co-Chair Scott Wallace is proud of the work of grantees like Planned Parenthood in empowering women and protecting reproductive rights and will stand up for Pennsylvania women,” she said in an email.

“In Washington, Brian Fitzpatrick voted to defund Planned Parenthood and supports Donald Trump’s effort to take away a woman’s right to choose,” she added.

Largely reminiscent of Nazi Germany who exercised eugenics to its full and most horrific potential, this policy of so-called “irresponsible breeders” also resembles the one-child policy from China that saw forced abortions or other forced invasive birth control procedures. Yet eugenics practices had their roots in America as well. American newspapers frequently offered praise for eugenics just prior to WWII and The Holocaust …. that is until Adolf Hitler revealed the true horrors of what eugenics really looked like. They avoided the subject for decades thereafter.

Nine out of ten eugenicists in the 20th Century were also Progressives or Socialists, and the most central component to the eugenic creed is the desire to engineer and centrally plan human reproduction, weeding out the unwanted or undesirable, according to a report on eugenics by PBS.

Yet where does that end? Who determines who is undesirable? Is it the unborn child conceived at an inconvenient time? The elderly mother? The child with cerebral palsy? Those with PTSD? Autism? Blue eyes? White skin? You cannot get to genocide without first visiting identity politics and they say the propagandist’s job is to effectively make the people forget his “enemy” is, in fact, a human being just as he is. It seems we never really do learn from history, do we?

Trump Issued Major Warning: ‘We Will Look Into Discriminatory and Illegal Practice’ – It’s On!

Huge problems and everyone needs to know!

Published

on

President Donald Trump voiced his concerns over “discriminatory and illegal practice” when he posted about the alleged controversy going on with Republicans being censored on Twitter. The tactic is sometimes referred to as “shadow banning” and it seems to be a strategy that social media platforms use to limit the visibility of some people. For example, ever wonder why someone who is genuinely popular might have tons of followers but their posts don’t seem to get many responses? It could be one of several reasons. Either they have fake followers, the post is no good, or they are being censored. In many cases, it’s a form of censorship that’s the obvious result. When a social media user goes from getting a lot of replies and views on their posts, then all of a sudden there’s very little replies and it seems like no one has seen the post – then they were hit with that form of censorship or suppression.

Social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook have been called out for suppressing the content of certain Republican voices or those who support President Donald Trump. Well-known stars like Diamond and Silk have made it very public that they feel targeted for the views and opinions on their pages. That’s just the tip of the iceberg because the problem spans from targeting well-known mainstream people all the way down to the independent publishers. Censorship like this is affecting people’s careers and causing an unbalanced platform in which people with certain views are being limited. It might not be listed as a “ban” but it’s certainly limiting the viewership of certain people. The content that would once appear in people’s feed or timeline now requires a fine-tooth comb to find and it seems like people are realizing this more often and being upset with it.

Trump spoke about it on Twitter and Vice News completed a report on it.

Vice News reported: “Twitter is limiting the visibility of prominent Republicans in search results — a technique known as “shadow banning” — in what it says is a side effect of its attempts to improve the quality of discourse on the platform.

The Republican Party chair Ronna McDaniel, several conservative Republican congressmen, and Donald Trump Jr.’s spokesman no longer appear in the auto-populated drop-down search box on Twitter, VICE News has learned. It’s a shift that diminishes their reach on the platform — and it’s the same one being deployed against prominent racists to limit their visibility. The profiles continue to appear when conducting a full search, but not in the more convenient and visible drop-down bar. (The accounts appear to also populate if you already follow the person.)

Democrats are not being “shadow banned” in the same way, according to a VICE News review. McDaniel’s counterpart, Democratic Party chair Tom Perez, and liberal members of Congress — including Reps. Maxine Waters, Joe Kennedy III, Keith Ellison, and Mark Pocan — all continue to appear in drop-down search results. Not a single member of the 78-person Progressive Caucus faces the same situation in Twitter’s search.

“The notion that social media companies would suppress certain political points of view should concern every American,” McDaniel told VICE News in a statement. “Twitter owes the public answers to what’s really going on.”

Presented with screenshots of the searches, a Twitter spokesperson told VICE News: “We are aware that some accounts are not automatically populating in our search box and shipping a change to address this.” Asked why only conservative Republicans appear to be affected and not liberal Democrats, the spokesperson wrote: “I’d emphasize that our technology is based on account *behavior* not the content of Tweets.”

Twitter directed VICE News to a May 15 blog post that explained the company’s new approach to combating “troll-like behaviors.” After making changes to its platform, the company said that “[t]he result is that people contributing to the healthy conversation will be more visible in conversations and search.”

Twitter did not respond to a follow-up question.

Twitter’s troll hunt, however, has ensnared some of the most prominent Republicans in the country. Type in the names of McDaniel, conservative members of Congress like Reps. Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan, and Matt Gaetz, and Trump Jr.’s spokesman Andrew Surabian, for example, and Twitter’s drop-down search bar does not show their profiles. The search menu also does not display the verified profile of Rep. Devin Nunes of California, only his unverified one that he seldom uses to post.

That limits their visibility and the ease of finding their profiles compared to their liberal counterparts.

UPDATE: July 26, 10:00 AM: Twitter appears to have adjusted its platform overnight to no longer limit the visibility of some prominent Republicans in its search results.”

At what point do social media platforms give the control back to the people? Users should not have to worry about their views being censored by the machine.

Censoring any content that is not illegal should not be tolerated by the users.
