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.

Trending: Melania Fired Them ALL! ‘That Is Not Acceptable Here – I Won’t Allow It!’

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.

Kavanaugh Accuser Unravelling – Hit With Stiff Ultimatum After Ignoring Senate’s Inquiries

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by The Daily Caller:

Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins said she finds it odd that Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of high school-era sexual assault, will not respond to inquiries from the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“That’s very puzzling to me. I have said from the beginning that these are very serious allegations and she deserves to be heard. She’s now being given an opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee and to answer questions and I really hope that she doesn’t pass up that opportunity,” Collins said to a group of reporters in the Dirksen Senate Office Building Tuesday morning.

This comes as Ford previously said she would be willing to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Collins has been on the fence on her support for Kavanaugh, and mentioned to reporters Tuesday she would like to see the “two attorneys who are representing Judge Kavanaugh and Professor Ford do the questioning for the first round and then go to the committee for questions.”

“It’s not unheard of to have counsel do questioning,” she added. “[Ford] will be represented by counsel. And I think it’s important that we hear from both Professor Ford and Judge Kavanaugh under oath in a public hearing.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed Democrats for bringing forward a 36-year-old accusation of misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh, on the Senate floor Monday.

Mueller Investigation Comes To Screeching Halt After Anti-Trump Dem Exposes His Fatal Mistake

Published

...

* By

Bob Woodward, an investigative reporter who works for The Washington Post, has been in the business of ‘dirty little secrets’ so long that he was part of the team who cast a light on Richard Nixon during Watergate. In fact, once Fox News even called him a Watergate legend. Well, it has become quite obvious that now he has his sights set on President Trump and his administration. In fact, he makes it very clear where he stands when it comes to President Trump in his new “secret” book, ‘Fear’.

Yes, it was a secret because he told no one about it for the past 19 months he’s been writing it. He wanted to keep a ‘low profile’ while he researched what he planned to include in the book. There was a press release for ‘Fear’ that described the book as “an unprecedented look into the harrowing life inside Donald Trump’s White House and how the president makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies”.

Woodward claims that he engaged in “hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources”. It is for this reason, we can tip a hat to the man’s work ethic despite the difference of opinion we have with him regarding President Trump and the administration. I am going to show you why right now.

Bob Woodward had an interview with Hugh Hewitt recently, in fact just a few days ago. In this interview what he revealed arguably gives President Trump supporters a very good reason to send a fat “IN YOUR FACE!” telegram to Democrats.

Check this out!

“So let’s set aside the Comey firing, which as a Constitutional law professor, no one will ever persuade me can be obstruction. And Rod Rosenstein has laid out reasons why even if those weren’t the president’s reasons. Set aside the Comey firing. Did you, Bob Woodward, hear anything in your research in your interviews that sounded like espionage or collusion?” Hugh Hewitt asked Woodward.

“I did not, and of course, I looked for it, looked for it hard,” Woodward answered. “And so you know, there we are. We’re going to see what Mueller has, and Dowd may be right. He has something that Dowd and the president don’t know about, a secret witness or somebody who has changed their testimony. As you know, that often happens, and that can break open or turn a case.”

“But you’ve seen no collusion?” Hewitt asked again to confirm.”

“I have not,” Woodward affirmed.”

Hewitt would once again ask Woodward about collusion at the conclusion of the interview.

“Very last question, Bob Woodward, I just want to confirm, at the end of two years of writing this book, this intensive effort, you saw no effort, you, personally, had no evidence of collusion or espionage by the president presented to you?” Hewitt asked.”

“That is correct,” Woodward said.”

Now if that isn’t satisfying to read, I don’t know what is. Not once, but twice Woodward clarified that he did not find ANY evidence of collusion during his research. This is coming from the same investigative reporter that was called at one time ‘a legend’ for his work. I mean, this is a man who is known for his extensive interviews with first witnesses, and research into documents, meeting notes, calendars, and even diaries. He is praised for how he constructs seamless narratives of events that he tells through the eyes of actual key participants.

Even the left knows this about him.

So, you can bet that him saying not once, but twice that he found zero evidence of collusion, is going be a real slap in the face for the left. Maybe if we listen very carefully we will be able to feel the tremor being caused by a nation full of ‘triggering’ liberals right this very second!

But I digress…

Despite this, there is still a lot of manipulative work he put into the book as well. For example, the petty stuff he made sure to include, was absolutely ridiculous.

Things such as:

“Fear: Trump In The White House also details President Trump’s explosive rants.”

“He is said to have called Attorney General Jeff Sessions “mentally retarded”, allegedly adding: “He’s this dumb Southerner. … He couldn’t even be a one-person country lawyer down in Alabama.”

I’d like to give a moment now to Trump, to clear things up on this.

There were also many schoolyard claims about White House Chief John Kelly such as the following:

“White House chief of staff John Kelly frequently lost his temper and referred to President Donald Trump as “unhinged” and an “idiot,” author Bob Woodward writes in his new book “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

We can clear that up to, since the book’s release Kelly has had something to say about this claim.

“Kelly, in a statement Tuesday, denied the claims as simply “not true.” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders also refuted the book’s claims.”

“Kelly said in his statement that “the idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true . . . . As I stated back in May and still firmly stand behind: ‘I spend more time with the President than anyone else, and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship. He always knows where I stand, and he and I both know this story is total BS.'”

“I’m committed to the President, his agenda, and our country,” Kelly said. “This is another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration’s many successes.”

“Sanders said Tuesday that “This book is nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees, told to make the president look bad.”

Needless to say, the book ‘Fear’ is just another ‘he said, she said’ work created with the purpose of adding fire to the left’s agenda and casting doubt upon the shoulders our President, but do you think it will have that effect at all? We want to know what you think!
