The Latte Salute … or was it Chi Tea?
SHAMEFUL!!! Meet the
Commander Community Agitator in Chief who could just care less about the military. Yesterday, President Barack Obama stepped off Marine One in NYC only to salute the two Marines at the bottom of the helicopter’s stairs with a coffee cup in his hand. HEAD SHAKING. It is being dubbed the “latte salute” although it is uncertain as to whether Obama was drinking Chi tea at the time. This president had just come from a White House photo op explaining to America the air strikes against ISIS that most informed Americans had already known about. In essence, he had just committed America to war in the fight against ISIS and Islamo-Nazi’s and somehow between the flight from DC to NYC Obama resorted back in longing for the days of vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard and golfing.
It is not required that a President salute, but if one is going to, don’t half-ass it. Then again, that has been the theme of the Obama presidency. The sick part about it is he did not even realize he did anything wrong. How disrespectful is that? The White House did not even think it was offensive as they posted it on their Instagram account. Obama should have realized his mistake, turned around, put down his coffee cup and provided a proper salute to both marines and then shook their hands and thanked them for their service.

Some are calling it the “latte salute.”
When President Obama stepped off Marine One at the Wall Street landing zone in New York City, en route the United Nations, he saluted two Marines at the bottom of the stairs as he held a coffee cup in the same hand.
The unusual gesture appeared in an Instagram video posted by the White House on social media. Obama is also wearing sunglasses as he arrived, with the first lady not far behind.

Its Been 13 Years Since September 11, 2001 … Have You Forgotten? We Have Not, We Will Always Remember Those We Lost, The Heroes & the Evil that Attacked Us and Continues To
Today is the 13th anniversary since that fateful Fall day on September 11, 2001 where the United States of America changed forever … Please Don’t Ever Forget.
Today, bells toll and a moment of silence commemorate the exact times that the planes piloted by Islamic terrorists crashed into both towers the World Trade Center in New York City, into the Pentagon in Washington, DC and into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The bells toll to remember the times that both towers fell in NYC and thousands of innocent people were killed who’s only crime was going to work and the heroes that rushed into the buildings and never came home.
Have you forgotten that September morning? In many ways it seems that many have. That is until we are attacked again, like in Benghazi, Libya September 11, 2012. A terror attacked passed off as being blamed on a anti- Islamic video tape by our government which we pretty much know is a lie. Have you forgotten? It seems like a country once again did until suddenly they received a wake up call from a jayvee terrorist group known as ISIS. There will always be those who wish to destroy America simple because, we are America. God bless all those who lost their lives and to the families, loved ones, friends and those who have been personally affected by the terror acts of 9-11. Its been 13 years, I miss you.
However, today is meant to honor the memories and the lives of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and the heroes that inspired a nation. It has been 13 years to the day of that fateful September morning in 2001 where in an instant our lives and world changed forever. Nearly 3000 people lost their lives in NYC at the World Trade Center, in Washington, DC as flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon and in a field in Shanksville, PA where heroes aboard Flight 93 took matters into their hands and said “NO to terrorism”. DO YOU REMEMBER? Please I beg you, NEVER FORGET.
I understand the reason why solemn services are held and the bells toll to remember the times in which these horrific terror acts were perpetrated on the United States, but do not ever forget the images, the sounds and the smells of what actually took place. It should be carved into the minds and souls of all Americans. If it is not, if we forget, we will be destined to repeat history.

Barack Obama’s Strategy on ISIS Speech Tonight … Who Cares Unless It Sounds Like Tony Stark (IRON MAN) … For Your Consideration, The Jericho!!!
Does it really matter what Obama says tonight, TALK IS CHEAP and this president has no credibility!!!
The media has been all a buzz ahead of President Obama’s speech tonight on ISIS wondering what Barack Obama must say, how he will say it, what color will his suit be, how about his tie, will he be wearing a flag pin and on and on and on. WHO CARES!!! To borrow a line from Hillary Clinton, “what difference does it make?” This clueless and dangerous president has been forced into this speech in dealing with ISIS as this joke of a president never considered ISIS a danger as he considered them the Jayvee. ISIS was on the move and Obama knew about them for well over a year from his presidential briefings. That is if he read them. Now that the polls say that Obama is lacking in his dealing with ISIS and an overwhelming majority want them bombed back to the stone age … Obama forces himself off the golf course and makes a strategy.
Let me make one thing clear, unless Obama’s says and provides the same VIDEO as below and channels his inner Tony Stark, it is a complete waste of time. Sorry, when Obama talks tough and makes promises, all I hear is his so-called line in the sand with Syria and “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”.
They say the best weapon is the one you never have to fire. I respectfully disagree. I prefer the one you only have to fire once. That’s how dad did it, that’s how America does it, and it has worked out pretty good so far. Find an excuse to let one of these off the chain and I personally guarantee you the bad guys won’t even want to come out of their caves. For your consideration … THE JERICHO!!!
Of course we know that won’t happen, Obama will tell us that all Muslims are not terrorists and that Islam is a region of Peace, blah, blah , blah … “ISIL,” blah, blah, blah … “I”, sounding more like the teacher from Peanuts and Charlie Brown than a United States Commander in Chief.

If you think that protests against illegals being allowed into the United States is just a Red state, Republican issue, think again. Rallies across America are happening, including in states like Massachusetts. It would appear that people in the Bay State have awoke and are protesting. Enough is enough, Americans must stand up and stop this lawless president.
Join Jeff Kuhner for a major rally to protest Governor Deval Patrick’s plan to house illegal aliens from Central America in Massachusetts. The rally takes place Saturday, July 26, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the steps of the State House on Beacon Hill across from the Boston Common.

Interestingly enough, The Right Scoop has more video (see below) of a portion of the speech where radio host Jeff Kuhner welcomed Hispanics and legal immigrants, and the audience applauded. Much of the media, Barack Obama and Democrat politicians want to depict anyone who would protest illegals as racists. However, that is not the case, We the People, that includes men, women and children of all nationalities who are LEGAL American citizens are protesting.
Laura Ingraham Coming to Nashville, Tennessee for the Restore America: Joe Carr for Senate Rally … Retire Lamar, Vote for Joe Carr!!! (Update: #BeatLamar)
Restore America: Joe Carr for Senate rally Tuesday, July 22 in Nashville, TN.
The Real CNC opines that conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham will be in Nashville, TN on Tuesday, July 22, 2014 and attending the Restore America: Joe Carr rally. Laura Ingraham recently announced her full support for Joe Carr for US Senator for Tennessee. The Restore America: Joe Carr for Senate rally will be held at the Millennium Maxwell Hotel at 7 pm on Tuesday, July 22.
Take a stand Tennessee!!! Tired of establishment candidates that care more about their power than you? It’s time for new representation for the GOP in Washington, DC. Someone who actually holds true Republican principles, not an establishment candidate like Lamar Alexander who has been part of the problem. It is time to send the Inside the Beltway political ruling class and the Republican party a message. Republicans must stand for Republican values, not be Democrat light. It’s time for a change, Vote Joe Carr!!!
BEAT LAMAR announced today that conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham will headline a Restore America: Joe Carr for Senate rally Tuesday, July 22 in Nashville, TN.
Ingraham, who just announced her full support for Joe Carr in her nationally syndicated radio program, said “Tennessee is one of the most beautiful states in America, and deserves a Senator who would rather spend his time with Tennesseans at Cracker Barrel than with lobbyists at elite Washington eateries.”
The Restore America: Joe Carr for Senate rally will be held at the Millennium Maxwell Hotel at 7 pm on Tuesday, July 22.
“With tens of millions in our country still out of work and the border crisis worsening, citizens across America are waking up to the shocking failures of the Washington establishment that Lamar Alexander calls home. Electing Joe Carr will be a major victory in this new movement to restore America,” Ingraham said.
The American Conservative Union (ACU), gave Lamar Alexander a 60 percent rating for 2013, 68% in 2012 and a lifetime rating of 76%. What does that tell us? Lamar is becoming more and more liberal in his votes.
The Heritage Action scoreboard gives Lamar Alexander a dismal 49% rating.
Freedom Works gives Lamar a 63% lifetime score. and 50% in 2013.
From RED STATE … check out Lamar Alexander voting record.

If you thought Shiloh Brew & Chew was a Honkey-tonk, redneck bar that served up beer, Bourbon, sold chewing tobacco and had spittoons at every table, you would be wrong and a judgmental liberal. Welcome to one of Eastern Tennessee’s most safe restaurant.
In Fact ‘Shiloh Brew and Chew’ is a family restaurant in Maryville, Tennessee where the “Brew” stands for their coffee and the “Chew” for their food menu from burgers to steak to pizza and the owner, Sharma Floyd, believes in the Second Amendment with a sign posted outside that says, ”Guns are Welcome on Premises”. The owner of this Eastern Tennessee eatery put up the sign after she read an article about a store in North Carolina that put up a sign that said no weapons allowed and was robbed two days later. Sharma says that the patrons response has been far more positive than the lone negative one.
How about enforcing the gun laws that already are on the books before you start making more?
According to Vice President Joe Biden on CNN, the NRA and Tea Party patriots are responsible for upholding the Second Amendment and preventing an overreaching and imperial government from passing new laws that would take away “We the People’s” right to bear arms. Of course Biden said it in a much more disgusting and disparaging manner. Who knew that it was “Teabaggers”, individuals who slaps another person in the face with their nad sack, that were responsible for preventing new gun control laws. Nice, eh? But what else would be expect from this vile, divisive Obama presidency?
Vice president Joe Biden has disparaged gun-rights advocates as “tea baggers,” CNN host John Walsh told reporters today. Walsh, the former host of America’s Most Wanted, recounted that he bonded with Biden over the need for more gun control and their distaste for the National Rifle Association..
“I said to Joe Biden, ‘90 percent of Americans are for a responsible background check for a gun, and you know what this Congress has done? Not voted on it, not brought it to the floor, not introduced a bill,’” he recalled to reporters during an event for his upcoming program, a crime show called The Hunt. “I said, ‘They’re all scared shitless of the NRA, aren’t they?’”
“‘John, every one of them,’” the vice president replied, according to Walsh. “‘Because the NRA will run a tea-bagger against you. . . . They’ll put 5 million bucks against you.’”
Imagine being called names and the VP using a slur like “Teabagger” for some one who finds it important to protect the 2nd Amendment to the Bill of Rights of the US Constitution. But use any type of slur against Gays, transgenders or even call someone an “illegal” and you are condemned as being hateful.
On another note, hey John Walsh, you have been a tremendous victims rights advocate, but don’t push it. I can respect John Walsh for all that he has done for missing persons and being a victim advocate, but that does not give him carte blanche on opinions on crime. Just because you claim you can see both sides, does not mean you are not bias. Case and point, you claim that it is ludicrous for the NRA’s solution to arm every grammar-school 80-year-old teacher with a gun. Really John, an 80 year old teacher. Who is being ludicrous? Walsh went on to say, politicians are “scared sh*tless” of the NRA. One might say it’s about time these individuals are scared of something. But let’s get your facts straight John, it is not the NRA that politicians fear, it is the millions and millions of gun owning voters who are doing nothing more than using their Second Amendment rights. I would have expected more from some one of John Walsh than take the lazy, liberal way out of wanting new gun control laws that the LEFT uses as a direct assault on individuals legal rights to bear Arms.
“I am the guy that has seen both sides of the issue,” Walsh told reporters Monday. “I own guns. I’m the father of a murdered child. I’ve done nothing but track violence in America since my son was murdered. We have a serious problem with guns in this country. And we refuse to address it. And the NRA solution to arm every grammar-school 80-year-old teacher with a gun is absolutely ludicrous,” he said.
Walsh said the NRA is so deeply in the pocket of the gun industry that “they’re not a lobbyist on Capitol Hill, they’re a gun manufacturer rep.” He also said Vice President Joe Biden recently agreed with him that politicians are “scared s—less” of the NRA.
Happy Independence Day … July 4, 2014 … Happy Birthday America … Always Remember We Celebrate American Independence, Not Dependence
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!!!
As we celebrate America’s birthday today, please do not ever forget that independence and freedom are never free. Nor should it ever be taken for granted as out own government attempts to take away those very freedoms on a daily basis. Remember the sacrifice of the bravery of so many who fought against the British crown to create an Independent country and the many since who have fallen to maintain our Independence. It is “We the People’s” job to maintain American independence as stated in the Declaration of Independence, “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” America, that means that government gets its power from the people, not the other way around. NEVER FORGET THAT. Those words scribed in The Declaration of Independence ring just as powerful today as they did in 1776.
Today we celebrate American independence, remember that as our own government attempts to make “We the People” dependent upon government.
IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

I’m proud to be an American where as least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the USA

FROM THE DEMOCRATS … HAPPY FLAG DAY!!!
So this is how the Democrat party shows it’s love for America, eh? On Twitter stating Happy Flag Day while showing a picture of a child with who knows what flag or banner. What it is not is Old Glory. Instead of honoring the American Flag, but instead attempt to make a political statement in light of the controversy surrounding the child refugee system at the border.
This is the official Twitter account of the Democratic Party. Follow our tweets to get the latest info on Democratic news, issues, and events.
The Daily Caller – Democrats Celebrated Flag Day By Tweeting Out Non-American Flag:
In a picture sent out from the official Twitter account of the Democrats on Saturday, a young Hispanic boy appears to be holding some kind of flag or banner that has the colors of Old Glory, but clearly isn’t Old Glory.
The image is likely seen as a political statement in light of the controversy surrounding the recent arrival of thousands of unaccompanied children coming across the Mexican border into the United States from Central America.
However, many on Twitter are not amused:
