Praying that Donald Trump can save America in 2024!

Archive for the tag “MEMORIAL DAY”


I sat down at my PC today to do an article on Memorial Day and the sacrifices so many Americans have made in my lifetime to protect our freedoms. I have recently written several articles and posted many instances of how America mistreats its veterans on Facebook. Millions of Americans, including myself, have freely volunteered to serve in one of our military services in their lifetime.

The government owes me nothing, I have never asked for anything as I was fortunate to live the American dream and able to provide for myself. Unfortunately due to wounds, injuries, inhuman treatment, neglect, imprisonment and Agent Orange administered by our own government in Viet Nam, we continue to have thousands of wonderful Americans who need help.

Every member of Congress, the President and every employee of the US government should be ashamed of the torture they have designed to treat these brave veterans. The saddest part is our President and Congress are more interested in providing free services to aliens, legal and illegal, to buy their votes. This includes both Demoncrats and Republicans and they just ignore the travesty year after year.

Along come a fresh, brash, successful American named Donald Trump and the people like myself have arisen to tell Washington that we have had enough. He is the first politician in my 85 years that has promised to actually treat the veterans with equal healthcare service. This one promise gained my vote and support as none of the others who have and are still running care about the veterans. I will also add that Trump’s promise to “stop” the illegal alien invasion and the Obama acts of inviting known enemies to enjoy all of the benefits for Americans, except military veterans, are provided.

At the same time I was listening to the news which was showing the scenes of recent protest, political dissent, including civil disobedience at a Seattle May Day protest marred by unbelievable violence. I typed into Google to read about “Recent political violence in America”. What happened was unreal as I was given access to 88,700,000 Search Results.

To accentuate the “Disunited States of America let me share some of the near ninety million illustrations it appears available for review:

Mar 14, 2016 – “Tonight wild, chair-swinging violence erupted at a Trump rally” in Detroit”.

“Donald Trump and Why America is Hurtling toward a Violent schism”.

“In January, protesters tried to disrupt a Trump rally in Vermont”.

Apr 9, 2016 –“Donald Trump & Protests — Violence Marks 2016 Election Cycle.”

Mar 17, 2016 – “Why 2016 Is Shaping Up to Be the Most Violent Election Cycle in the United States.”

Mar 12, 2016 – “Trump supporters, protesters clash after Chicago rally postponed …. Should Trump denounce violence at his rallies? ….. “For all of us who cherish the ideals upon which our country was founded, the hateful, should not only say loudly and clearly that violence has no place in our politics.

Apr 30, 2016 – “Seattle May Day protests marred by violence”.

If Congress had a scintilla of common sense or an ounce of decent honesty they would enact legislation with 100% support on this Memorial Day. This law would demand immediate arrest of every protester at any violent event, even if they were just watching and send them to Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria. These lazy sleaze bags, likely on welfare or college professors could all protest actual events of civil disobedience, inhuman treatment and real warfare. Pay them what we pay the military that we send to these God forsaken places.

To my fellow American veterans I wish you a wonderful Memorial Day we likely will celebrate among ourselves.

To Congress, President Obama, the Supreme Court, our media, spineless protesters, Illegal invaders, Progressive -Liberals and our leaderless government, let me invite you all to

“Go to Hell”.

C Brewer, US Navy Veteran 1947-1952 , May 30, 2016 – Memorial Day – Vote for Trump.

APOPTOSIS (āp’əp-tō’sĭs, āp’ə-tō’-)

I actually spent more time looking for a way to capture your attention by searching for a real term to discuss what is actually happening in America. I was fascinated to discover that “Implode”, “Self-Destruct”, and other terms being used to describe what is happening in the United States today are poorly defined by the dictionaries available. After deeply reading and writing about what is happening from within to destroy the greatest country ever created by man I pray that Donald Trump can continue to wake up this sleeping giant.

Before I try to explain why I choose this word it reminded me of the “progressive” movement that has been underway in America. The Progressives really have no singular political affiliation. My reading has revealed that the father of this movement was Theodore Roosevelt. His edicts and actions allowed the taking over millions of acres of land by every way possible to enhance the power of the central government. Every Progressive since has made federalizing more assets to continue to empower centralized control as a replacement for “States Rights”.

To try to make the analogy fit my chosen title let me wordsmith the definition of Apoptosis to what has and is continuing to happen in America. This term is defined as a “natural process of cell self-destruction that is genetically programmed to have a limited life span or is damaged. Apoptosis can be induced either by a stimulus, toxic drugs, or by removal of a repressor agent. The cells disintegrate then eliminated by phagocytosis, also called programmed cell death. Should you choose to dig deeper with an open mind you would find that all freedom loving Americans would perceive that Trump is our last hope to be our phagocytosis. If you intend to vote for Hillary or Bernie don’t waste your time trying to understand my thesis. You will just end up chasing your tail like a mindless puppy. Funny I used this analogy as anyone who could possibly vote for either of these Demoncratic and fiercely Progressive candidates is either mindless or brainwashed.

Trump is the first American to run for President who is either not owned by the Progressives or is too dumb to know he is being used like marionette. Carter was the first in my lifetime and Obama has proven he is so self-centered and hate filled he has accelerated the movement to self-destruct at the speed of light.

Folks America is broken. Our central government is hell-bent on eliminating all States Rights. Obama has misused Executive Orders to accelerate enough hatred to incite both the black Americans and Hispanic illegal aliens to increase rebellion, destruction of property and eventually mass bloodshed to start another civil war. He has decimated the most senior leadership of our military. He has choked the development of advanced weapons. He armed the Mexican cartels with weapons to incite insurrections. He applauds the actions of destruction of personal property by those he has induced to hate successful Americans.

Obama is just another puppet for the Progressives and does not even care or know why. He hates America, freedoms and white people. He has scared Congress so bad they just sit on their hands and watch as there is no leadership today. He has total control of a totally biased Justice Department today. After eliminating Justice Scalia, we have a leaderless Supreme Court that today uses compassion and Progressive objectives to enact decisions rather than our Constitution and Bill of Rights. The scariest possible thing I have written about before is the damage that will happen should Hillary or Bernie be elected President. The next President will be nominating replacements for the Supreme Court that will control America’s destiny for the next 100 years if not forever and/or total self-destruction.

Unfortunately the people who will be hurt the worse will never read this and even a babbling idiot understands that a welfare society is only possible if you have a never ending supply of ducks that lay golden eggs. You can tax the rich until they have no more but somebody has to work to survive. Our central government has destroyed one of the best educational systems in the world with unionization and greed. Taxes have driven our most productive and inventive manufacturing organizations to move to other countries to survive as they can’t compete with American labor demands.

Donald Trump can be our Pied Piper and clean up the Washington swamp if enough American people are fed up with watching our country drown in regulation, insane climate propaganda and welfare ourselves to the poorhouse.

We faced a similar fate when I was a boy in the 1930’s and woke up when the Germans and Japanese Progressives tried to conquer the world. The Progressives forced the depression just like they are using Obama today to bankrupt the country so the Progressives can increase their power.

As I am in the last years of my life Obama has just made my retirement more of a challenge that I had planned for. What really disturbs me is that my 46 children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will face the rest of their lives a slave to a federal government that just keep destroying the freedoms I have loved so much.

As next Monday is Memorial Day let me wish all of my fellow veterans of military service a wonderful life. America was the greatest and can be the greatest nation again if enough people will vote for Donald Trump. There will never be another chance if the Progressives get four more years.

Happy Birthday today to my oldest child, Sue Albright, Love Dad.  


My friend Connie sent this to me and it is a must share. The shame is most Americans have no concept of what we lost defending our freedoms that Progressive-Liberals like Obama are destroying now. C Brewer
Friend sent this and it’s fantastic…….click on the site at the end.   

One thing you have to give our European cousins is “their sense and reverence for history”.
When my retired 2d grade teacher wife used to teach her kids about Memorial Day, she would give them a homework assignment…”go home and ask your parents what is and why do we celebrate Memorial Day.”
Some responses: 
It’s the 1st long weekend of summer vacation.
There are “door busters” at The Mall.
It’s the weekend we “open our pool”.
We have to go to a picnic at Uncle Dave ‘s and ….. he drinks too much beer and tells boring stories about ancient history from the last century in New Haven.
There’s a parade downtown and it usually backs up traffic and makes my daddy say those words I’m not supposed to repeat.
My Aunt Judy, who always brings a new uncle to our house, wears her “patriot cut off jeans” with the ‘merican flag patch on the back where the pocket used to be.
Okay, a little literary license, (aunt Judy and uncle Dave) but aside from that pretty factual. You see, most all of those parents were born after 1975 (Vietnam).
TAPS …The Last Post
A few years ago, a friend visited the Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial in the village of Margraten about six miles from Maastricht. There lie buried 8,301 American soldiers killed in the battles to liberate Holland in the fall and winter of 1944-5. Sgt. Bill Dukeman, 101st Airborne Division, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment  Second Battalion, Company C (of “Band of Brothers fame) is buried there.   He was killed in the battle of “The Crossroads” in northern Holland.
The Dutch hold an annual memorial concert every September at the above cemetery to remember and honor the Americans who died to free them in Operation Market Garden and subsequent efforts to eject the German army from Holland.  Sgt. Dukeman, like many other fallen GIs, was “adopted” by a Dutch family. Dukeman’s family in the States was contacted and hosted in Holland, and his grave site decorated each year by his Dutch “family.”  They keep his portrait in their home, displayed in a place of honor. Fathers pass this obligation down to their sons in Holland.
This version of the original “taps” music is played by a 13 year old Dutch girl named Melissa Venema. The conductor of the orchestra is Andre Rieu from Holland .  Many of you may never have heard taps played in its entirety. The original version of Taps was called Last Post, and was written by Daniel Butterfield in 1801. It was rather lengthy and formal, as you will hear in this clip, so in 1862 it was shortened to 24 notes and re-named Taps.
Turn on your speakers and get a tissue if you still love this country.



He was bald and paunchy and his hair was falling fast, he sat around the Legion, telling stories of the past.

Of a war that he once fought in and the deeds that he had done, in his exploits with his buddies; they were heroes, every one.

And ‘tho sometimes to his neighbors his tales became a joke, all his buddies listened quietly for they knew where of he spoke.

But we’ll hear his tales no longer, for ol’ Joe has passed away, and the world’s a little poorer for a Soldier died today.

He won’t be mourned by many, just his children and his wife. For he lived an ordinary, very quiet sort of life.

He held a job and raised a family, going quietly on his way; and the world won’t note his passing, ‘Tho a Soldier died today.

When politicians leave this earth, their bodies lie in state, while thousands note their passing, and proclaim that they were great.

Papers tell of their life stories from the time that they were young but the passing of a Soldier goes unnoticed, and unsung.

Is the greatest contribution to the welfare of our land, some jerk who breaks his promise and cons his fellow man?

Or the ordinary fellow who in times of war and strife, goes off to serve his country and offers up his life?

The politician’s stipend and the style in which he lives, are often disproportionate, to the service that he gives.

While the ordinary Soldier, who offered up his all, is paid off with a medal and perhaps a pension, small.

It is not the politicians with their compromise and ploys, who won for us the freedom that our country now enjoys.

Should you find yourself in danger, with your enemies at hand, would you really want some cop-out, with his ever waffling stand?

Or would you want a Soldier, his home, his country, his kin, just a common Soldier, who would fight until the end.

He was just a common Soldier, and his ranks are growing thin, but his presence should remind us we may need his likes again.

For when countries are in conflict, we find the Soldier’s part is to clean up all the troubles that the politicians start.

If we cannot do him honor while he’s here to hear the praise, then at least let’s give him homage at the ending of his days.

Perhaps just a simple headline in the paper that might say: “OUR COUNTRY IS IN MOURNING, A SOLDIER DIED TODAY.”


Thanks Jay Pennington, this old veteran appreciated the read.  God Bless America and those that protect her. CB


“Please join me in remembering those who gave their life to keep America free every day. Please thank every surviving veteran and those in the military for their service. Please help the wounded adjust their lives so they and their families will have peace and prosperity.”
