Mother Lost Her Son In Afghanistan And NEVER Got Call From Obama, But Look What She Just Got From Melania

Published

on

Memorial Day weekend has passed but we  always need to honor the sacrifice made by so many families whose loved ones have put their lives on the line in the defense of our country it is time to look back on those individuals. With an administration that truly values that sacrifice, there is no room for anything less than gratitude. Which is exactly what First Lady Melania Trump showed when she interacted with a Gold Star Family.

Via IJR:

“The loss of a child is an intensely painful and forever life-altering event that can shake a parent to the very core of their being, especially if that is an untimely one. Jill Stephenson lost her son — U.S. Army Ranger Benjamin Kopp and she knows all too well what that pain is.

In 2009, Jill received the worst possible news for a parent with their child deployed overseas could ever receive. Her son had been injured, suffering a gunshot wound to the leg. She remembers her first thought was that he was going to lose the leg.

Jill states – “When I got the call Ben was shot, my heart fell into my stomach. I was told he was shot in the leg and had undergone surgery and was recovering. My first thought was that he lost his leg.”

However, the injury turned into a series of worst-case scenarios in the eight days that followed his admittance to Walter Reed Medical Center. Knopp’s body eventually gave out due to the extent of his injuries. He was just twenty-one years old.

As a means of keeping her son’s memory alive and in an effort to help her process her grief eight years ago, Jill states that she has found a means to cope and to heal through sharing her son’s story of selfless sacrifice. She states she lives with the memory every day and that will never go away, however, sharing him with others, what he did, and what he was about, helps her continue to heal.

Through that grieving process and sharing of her son’s story, Jill became a part of TAPS. TAPS is a program that helps military families with the grieving process when a service member is k****d in action. To this day, she still continues her work in advocacy for veterans’ issues all across the country.

She has made at least two trips to Arlington National Cemetery annually since her son’s passing eight years ago. The visits fall in mid-December for Wreaths Across America and over Memorial Day weekend.

With Memorial Day coming up in just a few weeks the mainstream media is ramping up their continuous nonstop bashing of President Donald Trump ramping up into high gear. Many of the mainstream media continue to bash President Trump for his comments about Barack Obama not calling families of our fallen military.

Many in the media and all over Twitter lost their collective minds accusing President Trump of lying saying Obama most certainly did call families of fallen military. In fact, they protested so much the Washington Post did a fact-check…

“From our perusal of news reports and news databases, we could not find any contemporaneous evidence that Obama spoke about such calls or that the White House announced he had called families.”

WaPo quickly noted Obama had, on several occasions, met with the families of fallen soldiers. However, this is something that President Trump has also done as well as sending out letters. Yet while several members of the administration said they “recalled” such phone calls, no records were found. WaPo did, however, find a record of one soldier, Sgt. Sean Collins –

“Still, in early 2011, the family of one fallen soldier, Sgt. Sean Collins told Fox News they had requested a call from Obama and were told his schedule was too packed for a conversation.”

Meanwhile, Jill states she did not get a phone from the Obamas. However, what she did get may be infinitely more personal and much more heartfelt. Jill stated – “I never got a call. The Obamas never sent these, either.” She then shared a simple, yet powerful and heartfelt letter she received from First Lady Melania Trump just after Memorial Day in 2017 that touched her deeply.”

The letter that the First Lady sent to her read as follows,

“Dear Ms. Stephenson,

I wish to offer my heartfelt gratitude for the sacrifices you have made and the high price you and your family have paid to help ensure our freedom.

As a mother, you bear the burden of war in a very personal way. I want to take a moment, on Gold Star Mother’s and Family’s Day, to honor you and your son, Corporal Benjamin Kopp, who laid down his life to protect us, our country, and all we hold dear. His sacrifice will never be forgotten.

I hold you close to my heart and keep you in my prayers.

Sincerely,

Melania Trump”

In just a few short paragraphs, Melania Trump demonstrates what grace and class look like as she extends the compassion of a nation to a grieving family, extending her hand to thank them personally for all they have done to help keep this nation safe.

There is not much else needs to be said, as the first lady’s personalized message to Jill Stephenson on behalf of her son’s ultimate sacrifice speaks volumes. Meanwhile, as usual, the Obamas’ silence speaks volumes as well.”

When someone loses a child there is nothing that can be done that will change the pain they are in. Because nobody can bring back their child. However, one can at least try to bring happiness in the dark cloud they are traveling through. Yet, the Obama family could not even do that. How hard would it have been to just send them a card? not hard at all and with minimal effort. But First Lady Melania Trump certainly did it.

It goes to show how classy, dignified and filled with love the Trump administration is for veterans and servicemembers and their families. They were willing to go out of their way to do something as small as writing a letter in remembrance of their son. Something their predecessors never did. It indicates where their priorities really are.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
