After Obama Ignored Their Loss For Years, Trump Just Did What Barack Refused To – ‘It’s Emotional To Me’

Published

on

There are few things that tug at my heartstrings more than a Gold Star parent. Ceejay Metcalf is the Gold Star dad of Pfc. Michael Metcalf, who was killed in a roadside bomb attack in Afghanistan on his first mission en route to rescue fellow soldiers. He appeared on Fox & Friends to tell how moved he was by President Trump’s message to him during Monday evening’s memorial reception at the White House. Obama never even recognized his son’s sacrifice, but President Trump certainly did.

President Trump shook Metcalf’s hand and said, “Enjoy your evening, pops,” at the reception, a name his son would always refer to him as. Another tiny detail that Trump cared enough to find out about. Something you would never see Barack Obama do. Not in a million years. “It took everything I had to not have tears in my eyes over it,” he said. I can’t imagine how much that meant to that father. It eased the loss just a little bit and let him know that his son did not die for nothing and will always be remembered as the hero he is.

“In fact when I think about it, it’s emotional to me,” Metcalf said, fighting back tears. How could it not be? Having the Commander-in-Chief do such a thing would mean the world to any parent who has lost a child in battle. “It meant a lot to me.” Metcalf says that his son was a brave man and didn’t fear the fight when it came to his service. “He had a good heart and he loved to be there for somebody,” he said. He was a handsome, strong, young warrior who made the ultimate sacrifice so you and I can sleep peacefully and soundly at night knowing we are protected by men like him.

Michael Metcalf kept a hand-written note from his mother tucked inside his United States Army uniform. On April 22, 2012, he rushed to rescue his comrades in Patkia, Afghanistan, and drove over a bomb. “Well my wonderful son, the time is here for you to open your eyes & see what’s really happening in this crazy world! I know you will be fine. You are my “life” I love you more than anyone or anything ever! I am always here for you. Remember that. Come home to me safe!!!” The blast threw the 22 year-old soldier from Boynton Beach out of the truck, splintering his ribs. A main artery severed. Doctors could not stop the bleeding. He died on the battlefield where he fought. Her son’s blood stains nearly the entire letter.

Five years later, Metcalf’s mother keeps the note protected in a plastic sleeve in a trunk with her son’s uniform and his boots, still discolored from the Afghanistan desert dirt. There’s another letter — one addressed to her that he never got the chance to send. Kim Metcalf goes through that trunk lovingly touching the items that belonged to her son, just remembering and in some way being with him.

Since her son’s death, Kim has traveled across the country to meet with Michael’s friends, their families and other military moms who have lost sons. She keeps her son’s memory alive, but she’s found that so does everyone else. She receives messages on Facebook from people who say they knew Michael. His name is on memorials across the country. “Michael, he won’t be forgotten. He really won’t,” she said. Michael’s team, the 82nd Airborne Division known as the White Devils, has been called back to Afghanistan for the third time. “He was tough he couldn’t wait,” Kim said. “When they made the call to go rescue the truck… he was the first one to the truck, saying “let’s go, let’s go.”

If you’ve ever lost someone, you can relate to this mother. Grief is a devastating thing. Some never get over it. Both of Michael’s parents have learned to deal with it and believe that their son is still with them in ways hard to explain. That faith is something you either have or you don’t.

Here is the letter that Michael wrote his mom that he never got to send:

“Dear Mom,”

“It’s Sunday here around 8:30 (morning for us) we’re still at the bigger (field operating base) so I have the luxury of the phone and computer. It’s crazy how much everyone takes things for granted (at) home.”

“What I would do to just be able to buy a shampoo bottle without it being covered in dust, it’s whatever though.”

“Last night we took indirect fire, nothing crazy, just one mortar round. Everything is fine so don’t stress it.”

“Michael told his mom he couldn’t wait to get home, especially to smell the scent of clean clothes, and fresh air.”

“I hope you and Matt are great and everything back home is still the same. I miss you guys!”

“He told his mom to say hello to everyone, and that he misses them, too.”

“I don’t want any pictures or cards from home if that’s ok, it makes me home sick.”

“Anyway I love you! and miss you!”

“Love: Michael Metcalf”

One soldier like Metcalf, who was willing to risk it all for his country, is worth a million liberals who are free to be jerks because of people like this young man. Both Trump and Melania paid a heartfelt tribute to the Gold Star families on Monday night. FLOTUS had this to tweet, “Tonight @POTUS & I were honored to pay tribute to our fallen heroes. Thank you to the Gold Star families that joined us in celebration & remembrance.” This graceful observance and honor of our fallen in the military has been missing for eight years while Obama was in the White House. President Trump brought it back and more. The entire nation owes him a debt of gratitude for that. Americans are starved for it. Michael Metcalf will always be remembered, honored and loved.

After Mexico Refuses To Stop Migrant Invader Mob, Trump Swings Presidential Hammer Of Justice

Stop The Facebook Purge of Triple Amputee War Hero’s Pages! He Gave 3 Limbs For our Rights And they Stole It All From Him! Help this Hero Take it To Congress –> Fight4FreeSpeech!

This is a paid invasion army. It’s time to close the border immediately. I hope President Trump does so.

When you look at this illegal invasion.. you can clearly see most are men. Not women or children. Let’s hope they stop this in time.

From Zero Hedge:

Since President Trump threatened to close the Southern border due to Honduras’ unwillingness to comply with his requests for assistance in stopping a migrant caravan marching toward the US, the migrants have successfully crossed into Mexico and on Sunday regrouped after being temporarily delayed at the Mexican border by border guards who failed to force the migrants to turn back.

So, for the second time this year, it appears President Trump is ready to send more US troops to the border, as he said in a tweet Monday morning that he’d notified the border patrol and military that this is a “national emergency” while reiterating that the blame lay with Democrats for refusing to change our “pathetic” immigration laws.

The president also claimed that “unknown Middle Easterners” had become “mixed in” with the caravan.

And since Honduras and Guatemala did nothing to stop the migrants despite Trump’s requests for assistance, the president added that we would be cutting off aid: “We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them.”

The backlash to the migrants has intensified over the weekend, as the mile-long caravan has continued unimpeded toward the US’s southern border. Amusingly, liberals bullied the Associated Press on Sunday into correcting one of its headlines after the wire service described the caravan as an “army of migrants”.

“A ragged, growing army of migrants resumes march toward US,” read the original headline on the AP story. The AP later changed the headline to replace the word “army” with “caravan.”

Though the AP has used the word “army” to refer to large groups of people besides migrants – including nurses and political activists – many on the political left criticized the wire service for its original headline.

Meanwhile, videos have emerged of people handing out cash to the migrants, raising suspicions that the caravan has received outside funding for its assault on the southern border.

Congress Officially Filing Impeachment Charges Against Anti-Trump Politician – Then Unthinkable Happens

Published

President Trump is the Deep State’s biggest enemy. While Trump may be quite alone in his quest to “drain the swamp,” he does have some allies on the Hill.

Members of the Freedom Caucus have been assisting Trump in his battle with Mueller & his band of Democrats in charge of the witch hunt that after two years has produced zero evidence of Russian collusion.

Stop The Facebook Purge of Triple Amputee War Hero’s Pages! He Gave 3 Limbs For our Rights And they Stole It All From Him! Help this Hero Take it To Congress –> Fight4FreeSpeech!

A few months ago, Freedom Caucus leaders Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan filed impeachment charges against Deputy U.S. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The reason for the filing was because Rosenstein hadn’t handed over enough documents that had been asked for.

In July Vox reported:

“Hardline conservatives have backed down from a threat to imminently force a House vote on impeaching Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

On Wednesday night, Freedom Caucus leaders Reps. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) filed articles of impeachment against Rosenstein. The stated reason was mainly that Rosenstein allegedly wasn’t giving enough documents to Congress. But in context, the move — which wasn’t even certain to pass the House, let alone lead to Rosenstein’s removal from office — was clearly part of an effort by President Trump’s allies to attack the Justice Department and undermine special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, which Rosenstein supervises.

When Meadows filed the impeachment articles, only 11 of the 236 Republicans in the House were willing to sign on to them, making it unclear how much support his effort had. House Oversight Committee Chair Trey Gowdy, for instance, had said earlier that he wouldn’t back the effort (“Impeach him for what?” he asked). GOP leaders were also unenthusiastic about the controversial push, which would likely divide their party.

However, Meadows had the opportunity to use House rules to file a “privileged motion,” which would require a vote from the full House in the next two days — effectively forcing his colleagues to take a stand on impeaching Rosenstein even though there have been no hearings on the matter and little debate about it. Republicans facing tough races in November would not have been thrilled.

In the end, however, Meadows decided not to carry out that threat — for now, at least. He did not file a privileged motion for impeachment, and House Republicans announced Thursday morning that they would not vote on the matter before they leave for a month-long recess.

It is possible the effort could be revived in September when the House returns to Washington. But that would be closer to the midterms, meaning Republicans would be even less enthusiastic to take a divisive and controversial vote.

The current word is that Republican leaders agreed to hold a vote on whether Rosenstein is in contempt of Congress in the first week of September, if conservatives don’t get the documents they want by then. (That’s a weaker alternative to an impeachment vote, which at least had the potential to remove him from office.)

After conservatives had agreed to back down from the impeachment push, Speaker Paul Ryan announced publicly that he did not support impeaching Rosenstein. “I don’t think that this rises to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors,” he said.

Meanwhile, word leaked out that Jordan, who co-wrote the impeachment articles, will soon announce that he’s running to replace the retiring Ryan as speaker.”

Now, this could be seen as bad news in the fight against the Deep State, but there is a little hope.

Last month, leaked audio of Rep. Devin Nunes seemed to indicate that Rosenstein could be impeached at a later date. The timing was wrong for it.

USA Today reported:

“Leaked audio of Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., speaking at a Republican dinner fundraiser made public Thursday evening shows the congressman addressing why Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein hasn’t been impeached and saying that Republicans could be the only force stopping President Donald Trump from being impeached.

The audio, obtained exclusively by MSNBC, is of Nunes talking at a dinner event in Spokane, Washington, on July 30. He is asked by an audience member about the effort to impeach Rosenstein, which was only publicly supported by a small group of Republicans.

Nunes, who heads the House Intelligence Committee, seems to explain the main reason Congress hasn’t taken up the issue is due to timing and the upcoming midterm elections.

“It’s a bit complicated,” he told the audience member. “We only have so many months left.”

“So if we actually vote to impeach, OK, what that does is that triggers the Senate then has to take it up,” he said, explaining that it could take away from other priorities of Congress.

He said everything would have to be dropped if impeachment was up for a vote. “So it’s not a matter that any of us like Rosenstein. It’s a matter of, it’s a matter of timing.”

“Do you want them to drop everything and not confirm the Supreme Court justice, the new Supreme Court justice?” he added.

Later, he talks about the midterms and the sincere need to keep a Republican majority in both the House and Senate, something Democrats are hoping to clinch. Nunes details one big reason Republicans are needed: to protect Trump.”

Here’s the audio of Nunes.

Let’s hope Republicans in the House follow through & do their part to drain the swamp & get rid of those who are biased against Trump.
