VP Pence Picked Up Two Very Special Guests En Route To Receiving Remains

Published

on

And this here is the reason why we stand for that flag and for the playing of our national anthem!

Vice President Mike Pence made a very important stop in California as he was on his way to Hawaii for a repatriation ceremony for the 55 sets of remains which belonged to American military members who served and died during the Korean War which were turned over unconditionally by North Korea.

The Daily Caller is reporting that Fox News host Pete Hegseth, who is an actual U.S. Army veteran himself, spoke about how important the two guests who joined the vice president in California really are.

“On our way here, the vice president made intentional stop in California. We picked up probably the two most important passengers on that plane: a man and woman who were 4 and 3 years old — little girl and little boy in the 1950s — when they sent their father[s], then young men, both pilots, both first lieutenants, both went to fight in the Korean War and they recalled to me and recalled in media reports that last hug and that last kiss to their father before they went to that war and ultimately never came home, both shot down, remains never found. They dedicated their lives for the last 60 years finding out what happened to their fathers, what happened though those patriots, warriors who went to fight for us, for every generation of Americans.”

As you all know whenever there is a reparational ceremony such as this it’s customary to have family members present, even if the deaths took place decades ago.

This ceremony is said to have meant a lot to Vice President Pence since his own father was a Korean War combat vet.

“Americans have spilled blood on foreign continents for decades, Korea being a great example. The forests, the mountains, the riverbeds, the jungles, the forgotten places in the forgotten war. Those men can not and should not ever be forgotten. Speaks to the commitment of our government and speaks to the commitment of President Trump and Vice President Pence.

The mood on that plane, guys, was as somber and serious and honorable as I have ever seen, this vice president, very focused, it’s personal to him to, as you’ve mentioned. His father was a combat veteran in Korea who did come home. His father had always told him those heroes are the guys who never came home. Those same words come from the lips of guys like myself and Marcus Lutrell and Sean Parnell and vets of every generation. We know who to truly remember and today we remember them.”

Let’s hope that after 60 years these families can finally have closure and be able to say, “My father rests here.” And can stop wondering what happened to the men whom we owe everything to.

This is why it’s outrageous when we see people who make over 2 million a year just to toss around a football not standing for our nation’s colors. So many people have died to give them the ability to play ball for such an outstanding nation and all they do with that gift is disrespect her. Are we perfect? No, we are far from me, but I dare anyone to find a more perfect union than the United States of America. And no, those so-called Socialist Utopias in Europe are far from being perfect.

Here is more on this Repatriation Ceremony via The Honolulu Star Advisor:

“Two Air Force C-17 cargo aircraft will be back to back outside Hangar 19 at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Wednesday for the repatriation to American soil of remains turned over by North Korea, an official said.

Fifty-five American-flag-draped aluminum transfer cases will be carried off the planes by two joint service honor guard details and arrayed in the hangar for the afternoon ceremony that will include comments by Vice President Mike Pence.

The remains will then be transferred to the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency’s lab on Hickam for identification.

In a statement, Pence said President Donald Trump asked him to participate in the “honorable carry ceremony” and receive the presumed American remains as they return home.

“As the son of a Korean War combat veteran, it is deeply humbling to be part of this historic moment,” Pence said. “We will never forget the sacrifices these brave service members and their families made for our nation and our freedoms.”

Fourteen Hawaii residents who are Korean War veterans are expected to attend the ceremony, along with dozens of others from the Vietnam War and veteran organizations such as the American Legion, Military Order of the Purple Heart, Special Forces Association and Veterans of Foreign Wars.

A C-17 containing remains of fallen service members departed Wonsan, North Korea, on Thursday Hawaii time headed to South Korea and accompanied by United Nations Command Korea officials and technical experts from the accounting agency to preliminarily examine the remains.

Defense Secretary James Mattis told reporters on Friday that the reason the remains weren’t headed to Hawaii immediately was because they had to be reviewed.

In South Korea, the accounting agency would “look for any anomalies,” and “then the forensics will begin when we land them in Hawaii where the laboratory is,” he said.

“We don’t know who’s in those boxes,” Mattis said, adding they could be missing Americans or Australian or French troops.

On multiple occasions in the past, North Korean officials claimed the government possessed as many as 200 sets of American remains that had been recovered over the years, the accounting agency said.

Mattis said it was a “good question” as to why 55 sets of remains are coming home.

“We can’t go back in and verify what the number they had was before,” he said. “We know what they said. But for us, we’ll simply say this is obviously a gesture of carrying forward what they agreed to in Singapore, and we take it as such.”

The return follows the historic June 12 summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

In addition to North Korea committing “to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” both countries vowed to recover POW/MIA remains — including the “immediate repatriation” of those already identified by the North.

Mattis said it is the “first step of a restarted process” to recover American remains from North Korea, “so we do want to explore additional efforts to bring others home, perhaps to have our own teams go in.”

The last time North Korea turned over American remains was in 2007. Six boxes were given to then-New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and former U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Anthony Principi on a trip to the North.”

BREAKING: Migrant Caravan Swells Massively Overnight – Invasion Imminent At Border

Published

* By

Yesterday we had reports that as many as 2000 Central American migrants had turned back.

According to reports, thousands joined the caravan out of the blue overnight, though. Numbers now range at over 7000 in the group. Apparently Mexican forces are standing down or being overwhelmed.

We need the military on the border ASAP!

The L.A. Times is reporting:

“A caravan of Central American immigrants started walking north into Mexico early Sunday, blowing past police and immigration officials as they continued their journey toward the U.S. border.

A group of several thousand immigrants set out before dawn on the only road out of the small Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo. They were headed for the city of Tapachula, about 18 miles away.

It was unclear whether the police planned to stop the group. At one point, a large contingent of federal police officers blocked the road before retreating. At another point, a small group of police watched as members of the caravan passed, some of them running and skipping.

When a small group of immigration officials tried to stop the caravan to convince its members to apply for political asylum, the caravan swept past them too.

On Friday and Saturday, officials watched as thousands of migrants illegally crossed the Suchiate River that forms the border between Guatemala and Mexico.

Gerardo Hernandez, head of the civil protection agency in the municipality of Suchiate, Chiapas, said 7,233 immigrants were registered over the last three days at a shelter in Ciudad Hidalgo. He said his agency has been asked to help provide the immigrants with food and shelter.

The caravan left the impoverished and crime-ridden Central American nation of Honduras more than a week ago, and its participants began arriving late last week at the Guatemalan border town of Tecun Uman, just across the river from Ciudad Hidalgo.

The migrants say their intent is to cross into the United States. The Trump administration has vowed to stop their advance and has threatened Mexico and Central American countries with economic reprisals if they fail to stop the migrant group.

President Trump has made the caravan a campaign issue at his rallies in the closing weeks of the U.S. midterm election campaign, labeling the assemblage of bedraggled migrants a threat to U.S. security and saying he would call out the military should the migrants make it to the U.S.-Mexico border.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, under pressure from Trump, has said that no migrants will be allowed to enter the country in an “irregular” manner.

On Friday, Mexican authorities put on a show of force when several thousand caravan participants tried to storm the official Mexican border crossing into Ciudad Hidalgo. With tear gas and police in riot gear, Mexico thwarted the attempt to breach the border, an operation that drew praise from Trump.

The caravan is made up mostly of men but also includes hundreds of women and children, some of whom said they were fleeing violence.”

The Gateway Pundit also reported:

“The illegal migrant caravan is sweeping through Chiapas in southern Mexico on Sunday, their numbers having jumped to over 7,000 overnight from just a few thousand as it became apparent the caravan would not be stopped by Mexico. After blocking the migrants on a bridge Friday, Mexican officials allowed the migrants to swim and raft across a river from Guatemala into Mexico Saturday and then regroup in a riverside park. Mexico also allowed over 600 women and children to legally enter for processing on Saturday.

Reports from the caravan state that on two occasions Mexican federal police stood in formation to meet the caravan as the migrants staged a massive march up a highway. As the migrants approached both times the Mexican police stood down and let them pass. A Mexican official was reported to have said they can’t stop 7,200 people.

Kate Linthicum with the Los Angeles Times reported on the two failed attempts to stop the caravan Sunday: “I’m only just realizing the massive scale of this caravan as they march north into Mexico. It’s several thousand people. Just look…A group of immigration agents stopped the caravan to ask them to apply for asylum in Mexico. The caravan blew past them…The caravan just swept past a large contingent of Mexican federal police, who didn’t do anything to stop them…”

State Assembly Just Impeached Their Entire Supreme Court – They’ve Had It!

Published

on

...

* By

In what has to be the feel-good story of the day, The Hill is now reporting that the West Virginia House of Delegates actually voted on Monday night to impeach all of the justices on the state Supreme Court. This decision was prompted by reports of extravagant spending on office renovations.

In a series of votes that of course fell along party lines, lawmakers approved 11 articles of impeachment against the four sitting justices. Sending the process on to the State Senate.

State lawmakers had originally voted to impeach Justice Allen Loughry on eight articles after he and his office spent $363,000 in renovations. This became an issue when he was allegedly found to have lied to the House Finance Committee about having a $42,000 antique desk and computers, owned by the state, transferred to his home. And also was found to be using state vehicles for his personal use.

Here is more on this via Fox News:

“West Virginia lawmakers, seeking to remove every justice on the state’s four-member Supreme Court amid what they called an “over-the-top” spending scandal, impeached three justices on Monday, including Chief Justice Margaret Workman.

One article of impeachment said Workman and Justice Robin Davis signed documents in their roles as chief justices allowing for senior status judges to be paid higher than allowed wages. Lawmakers say the overpayments violated state law and stopped when they were challenged by the Internal Revenue Service.

Earlier Monday, the Republican-led House of Delegates voted 64-33 to send an impeachment article against Davis to the state Senate for trial. The vote came shortly after lawmakers also impeached indicted Justice Allen Loughry by a vote of 64-33. Loughry’s impeachment vote, which came after approximately two hours of debate, took only seconds, NPR reported.

Fox reported that one justice escaped impeachment, but that has now changed:

“Justice Beth Walker is the only current justice who has not been impeached as of Monday evening.

Walker was cleared late Monday of an impeachment article for spending $131,000 on renovations after taking office last year. She still faces another article that accuses her and the three other justices of abusing their authority by failing to control office expenses and not maintaining policies over critical matters. Some lawmakers said they didn’t condone Walker’s spending but said it paled in comparison to other justices.”

The Charlotte Observer is now reporting that another vote was held & Justice Walker has been impeached also:

“The West Virginia House of Delegates has impeached all four of the state’s Supreme Court justices.

The Republican-led House on Monday night impeached Justice Beth Walker and the other justices for abusing their authority. The article says they failed to control office expenses and not maintaining policies over important matters such as working lunches, the use of state vehicles and office computers at home.

Walker was the last of the four justices to be impeached. She had avoided impeachment earlier when the House voted not to pass an article against her for $131,000 in renovations she made after taking office last year.”

Fox News continues:

“The impeachments do not remove the justices from office. The articles will go to the Senate, which can formally remove the justices only by a two-thirds vote.

The charges were largely related to the justices’ use of state funds to conduct office renovations. Davis spent more than $500,000 on her office and Loughry spent more than $363,000 on his.

Loughry is under federal indictment and named in eight impeachment articles, including allegations he lied about taking home a $42,000 antique desk and a $32,000 suede leather couch.

On Monday, Loughry was impeached under six impeachment articles, including for allegedly driving state vehicles for personal use and of using state-owned computers at his home. He was also impeached for his role in assuring higher pay for senior status judges.

Republican Delegate Tom Fast of Fayette County said he had seen the work done in Davis’ office, including track lighting on the floor. He characterized the renovations as “over-the-top” and said the impeachment article “is one of the more easy ones” for him to support.

However, some legislators said they didn’t support impeaching any justice for wasteful spending, only for articles pertaining to lying, cheating or stealing.

Several lawmakers noted that the Supreme Court has a separate budget and is currently allowed to spend as it sees fit. A proposed constitutional amendment this fall would bring the state courts’ budget partly under legislative control.

But State GOP Delegate John Shott, who helped draw up the impeachment articles, said that if West Virginians do not trust their highest court, “we need to take action to try to rebuild that trust.”

Normally, West Virginia has five Supreme Court justices who are elected to serve a 12-year term. However, Menis E. Ketchum resigned from the state Supreme Court in July after he was accused of alleged federal wire fraud. He pleaded guilty to a felony charge of defrauding the state and faces up to 20 years in prison.”

Justice Robin Davis was also impeached after allegedly using $500,000 for office renovations.

Reports are now also adding that state lawmakers had initially overlooked Chief Justice Margaret Workman’s spending of $111,000 on office renovations. So she was also later impeached for her role in allegedly allowing senior-status judges to receive higher wages than allowed by state law. Davis and Loughry have also been accused of this.

Justice Beth Walker was the final justice whom lawmakers voted to impeach after she was found to be guilty of abusing her authority. This article also counted against the other justices. Lawmakers had previously decided to look past her spending $131,000 on office renovations.

The former Justice Menis Ketchum was reported to have stepped down from the bench last month and pleaded guilty to one count of federal wire fraud.

The West Virginia Governor, Republican Jim Justice will be allowed to appoint new justices to replace those who were impeached. He is not required to appoint justices from the same party as the incumbent as well so let the left wing whining begin.
