postheadericon No real winners in outcome of Ventura versus Kyle

Like many veterans, I was watching with great interest the court case that pitted former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura against famed Navy SEAL Chris Kyle’s estate.  Ventura won the case yesterday but in my opinion, both men’s images came out as the losers. It is a pretty tough call on how to evaluate the entire […]

postheadericon Tough duty: Commander in Chief played Spades while SEALs risked their lives in Osama bin Laden assault

There is no doubt that ordering men into battle isn’t easy and we all know President Barack Obama was quick to take credit for ordering the raid that resulted in the killing of Osama bin Laden.  Now we know just how tough it was on the commander in chief – he played cards while our […]

postheadericon Ultimate sacrifice for the nation brings ultimate disrespect from Commander in Chief

Abraham Lincoln famously said, “Any nation that does not honor its heroes will not long endure.”  In a shocking and sad commentary on the divergent views of the current occupant of the White House, we have learned that President Obama is sending out form letters signed with an autopen to families of those who have […]

postheadericon Former Special Forces and intelligence operatives launch campaign slamming intelligence leaks

The shadowy forces that work behind the scenes to keep the United States safe do so not for politics or recognition but for love of country.  A group of former military and intelligence agents have banded together to put an end to the politicization of operations that jeopardize those who conduct covert missions.

postheadericon Backfire: President Obama uses bin Laden killing as evidence of foreign policy strength

It is difficult for a Democrat to lay claim to being strong on national security and foreign policy, particularly for Barack Obama whose list of failed policies is long and far from distinguished.  His effort this past week to turn the killing of Osama Bin Laden into a campaign issue has backfired on him supremely […]

postheadericon The Obama apology tour starts again: President apologizes for Koran burning

President Barack Obama has made apologies for the United States and bowing to foreign powers one of the hallmarks of his foreign policy.  This week the president apologized to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the burning of Korans at a prison in Afghanistan.  On the surface it appeared this one apology was justified but was it […]

postheadericon Diminishing honor: Navy to name ship after Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords

Having a United States naval vessel named after someone is an extraordinary honor typically reserved for those who have contributed heavily to this nation or to the military.  The Navy’s decision to name a new ship after former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shows the meaning of this tribute is quickly diminishing. It is a tremendous honor […]

postheadericon Producer of CBS’ Hawaii Five-O issues apology of sorts to WWII vets; Vets group says it isn’t good enough

The executive producer of CBS’ Hawaii Five-O issued a statement about their disrespect of veterans last week in Hawaii that was less than heartfelt and called accounts of the event false.  Rightfully so, the non-profit organization that escorted the World War II veterans to Hawaii is saying that far more needs to be done. While […]

postheadericon Hawaii Five-O disrespect: CBS ‘looking into the matter’ as media coverage of show’s treatment of WWII vets grows

While CBS continues to avoid issuing a formal apology to World War II veterans for the reprehensible behavior of filming crews for the show Hawaii Five-O last week, the media coverage of the “ultimate disrespect” grows.  In the past 24 hours local media in Hawaii and Colorado as well as national media has reported on […]

postheadericon No word from CBS on disrespect of WWII vets, National Cemetery; Photos show crews standing on graves

Three days ago at a somber ceremony at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific remembering the attack on Pearl Harbor, a crew filming the CBS show Hawaii Five-O showed callous disregard for the men and women who have fought for this nation.  The silence from CBS is deafening and new photos show the lack […]
