Braves Fan Stands With With Marine Entire Game In Rain After Seeing What Was At His Knees – You’re the Best

Published

on

What happened yesterday at a rainy Atlanta Braves game is the kind of thing that makes America the greatest nation in the world.
The Atlanta Braves organization holds one special chair that is never sat in at Sun Trust Park. Last year the Braves dedicated one seat to honor POWs. They wanted to bring light to the 92,000 missing men and women who have bravely fought in wars around the world.

To honor that memorial seat, a US Marine JROTC member stood at attention in full uniform guarding the memorial.

Unfortunately, it was raining throughout the game, but the young man never moved he stood his post. In a very touching moment, a fan in a red raincoat walked up to the Marine and shielded him from the rain with his umbrella.

The picture went viral.

Fox News writes:

A simple gesture by a fan to a JROTC member at the Atlanta Braves game on Memorial Day was captured in a powerful image.

The fan, dressed in a red raincoat, held his umbrella over a U.S. Marine Corps JROTC member as he stood at attention next to the Braves’ POW-MIA Chair of Honor in the rain, according to FOX5 Atlanta.

The Braves tweeted the image and described the gesture with one word: “Respect.”

Another fan took a snap of the act from a different angle.

“They sacrifice so much for us, we can sacrifice for them too!!! #RespectOurMilitary,” the fan tweeted.

The Braves tweeted the image and described the gesture with one word: “Respect.”

“Since World War I more than 92,000 American soldiers are unaccounted for,” a plaque next to the chair reads. “This unoccupied seat is dedicated to the memory of these brave men and women and to the sacrifice they made in serving this country.”

While this amazing moment happened yesterday, in a stark difference, almost 5 years ago to the day former president Obama had an umbrella moment of his own.

During a rainy afternoon, Obama was giving a speech in the rose garden at the White House. Instead of standing under a pop-up cover he had a Marine in full uniform stand next to him and hold an umbrella.

Daily Mail reported:

President Obama humiliated the marine who he asked to hold his umbrella by making him ‘look like a butler’, a respected military general claimed today.

Thomas McInerney, a former United States Air Force Lieutenant General, said that the President showed a ‘lack of respect’ by making the soldier shelter him from a shower.

He also said that the President has plenty of aides so did not understand why one of them could not have held the umbrella.

The President caused a stir when he summoned over two marines to keep him dry at a press conference in the Rose Garden.

The marines held an umbrella over the President and the Turkish Prime Minister individually as Obama made jokes about the weather.

However, for some the move was not a laughing matter particularly as it is a breach of protocol for marines to hold umbrellas while in uniform.

Lt Gen McInerney told MailOnline that he found it particularly insulting how the President at one point his his hand under the marine’s arm ‘like he wasn’t doing a good job or something’.

He said: ‘The President has stood in the rain before without an umbrella and a marine would generally stand there without holding an umbrella.’
‘He isn’t some kind of butler or something.

‘It makes the other guy (the other marine) look like a butler too.’

‘I think it’s a lack of respect for the marine, that’s what I think.’

‘I don’t understand why one of his aides could not have held the umbrella. The marine is a warrior but the aides are not.’

Lt Gen McInerney, 76, served in Vietnam and fought with NATO and was commander of the 11th Air Force in Alaska before retiring.

He said: ‘If I was his (the marine’s) commander…I’d say good job, you did what he wanted you to do but you can’t, really he has to keep his comments to himself because if you say anything you’re going to get in trouble.’

‘Any time a marine has said something…one general who spoke out, he got fired, he got canned from his job.’

The new America under President Trump thrives on patriotism. He has brought back pride to be an American, and that’s what we saw yesterday at the Braves game. Respect for our soldiers, on a day where we remember soldiers who gave their lives for our freedom.

The US Military Has a Weapon That Will Stop Illegals Dead in Their Tracks

It turns out the military has a weapon in their arsenal that will stop illegals dead in their tracks. The Solid State Active Denial System (SSADS) creates a sensation of intense heat and forces people to retreat without hurting them. We’ve had it for six years and we could use it on our southern border.

The weapon seems to be very effective. It is the first non-lethal, directed-energy, counter-personnel system with an extended range greater than currently fielded for non-lethal weapons. It can be used for crowd control, protection of convoys and personnel, and security at checkpoints. Breitbart has more on this story:

Could a non-lethal defensive system developed by the Department of Defense nearly ten years ago play a role in deterring large groups of migrants from storming across the U.S. border? The system, referred to as a Solid State Active Denial System (SSADS), creates an intolerable pain response without causing any injury or long-term effects and forces the target to flee from the area.

A video released by the U.S. Marine Corps in 2012 shows a demonstration of the SSADS that shows its effectiveness against an individual or a large crowd. The system utilizes an RF system to create a sensation of intense heat forcing the subject or subjects to quickly retreat.

The demonstration takes place at Quantico, Virginia, and shows the reaction of an angry mob to the defensive system. It also shows its effectiveness against individuals who can be specifically targeted, such as the leaders of a group.

Another video released earlier this year shows more detail about how the system works and the types of platforms on which the weapon system can be deployed.

“The Active Denial System is needed because it’s the first non-lethal, directed-energy, counter-personnel system with an extended range greater than currently fielded non-lethal weapons,” according to a statement released by the Department of Defense.

“Most counter-personnel non-lethal weapons use kinetic energy (rubber rounds, bean bags, etc.). A kinetic-based system has a higher risk of human injury, and its effectiveness varies in relation to the size, age, and gender of the target,” the statement continues. “The Active Denial System, however, is consistently effective regardless of size, age and gender and has a range greater than small-arms range. The Active Denial System will provide military personnel with a non-lethal weapon that has the same effect on all human targets.”

Officials report an effective range of up to 700 yards for the non-lethal defensive system. The DOD reports that it can be used for crowd control, protection of convoys and personnel, and security at checkpoints.

Public discussions this week by many ask if this type of system could prevent the kinds of scenes witnessed when the caravan migrants stormed the Guatemala-Mexico border last month.

Democrats Caught Red Handed Lying About Migrant Caravan – Look What Was Spotted Near US Border

A portion of the migrant caravan has already arrived at our southern border. Roughly 900 migrants on board 22 buses have arrived in Sonora. They were escorted by Mexican police and federal agents. The caravan of buses is heading towards Tijuana as the first group of 400 did.

The Democrats have been lying about all of this from the beginning. Obviously, someone paid for all of these buses to take these people to the border. This is one more piece of the initial caravan heading to our border. The first caravan numbered 7,000 to 10,000 strong and these smaller groups broke off to scout the way for the rest of them. Breitbart has more on this story:

Portions of the migrant caravan consisting of nearly 900 Central Americans in 22 buses arrived in the northern border state of Sonora, escorted by state and federal police on Wednesday.

A video posted online captures the caravan traveling along Mexican federal highway 15, through Esperanza, just north of Ciudad Obregon, Sonora. A smaller caravan reportedly passed through Tuesday night with an additional 400 in transit.

Posted by Medios OBSON on Wednesday, November 14, 2018

The 22-bus caravan is expected to continue north on Mexican Federal Highway 15–temporarily stopping or passing through Hermosillo and north through Santa Ana, then west onto Mexican Federal Highway 2 past Caborca, San Luis Rio Colorado, Mexicali, Tecate and then to Tijuana.

This segment of the migrant caravan is part of the 7,000 to 10,000 Central Americans who crossed into Mexico approximately one month ago. Roughly 6,531 migrants crossed the state of Queretaro over the weekend, according to the local government. The figure is greater than the count made by authorities when the group spent several days in Mexico City, which suggests the possibility that other migrants joined the caravan. The group eventually stopped in Guadalajara after passing through Guanajuato. Authorities provided federal police escorts since they are traveling through some of the most dangerous territories of Mexico. Guanajuato experienced a 400% increase in murders since 2015 as organized crime gangs fight over lucrative drug trafficking routes and illegal fuel pipeline taps.

Breitbart News reported extensively on the cartel violence in Tijuana, with a total of 2,152 homicides in 2018. Some in the caravan are aiming for the California-Mexico border area to avoid Tamaulipas and Coahuila. There, cartels tend to direct their violence against the migrant community via extortion schemes.
