    The following is from my dear friend Beverly, whom I agree with totally. Today and every day I honor all those who gave their lives to protect and keep us safe. And may God Bless those who continue to put their lives on the line to protect the America we love and the freedoms we cherish.
    *********************
    The utter ineptness and disgrace that Obama exhibits on a daily basis does not get my attention today.

    Obama and Hillary and their disastrous policies that enabled and empowered (and armed) the savages we are fighting are all bad enough, but the disgusting desertion and dereliction of duty regarding 4 Americans who were slaughtered in Benghazi will always make a difference to those of us who revere and honor the brave and selfless Warriors who serve to protect and defend us! The difference the “preventable” deaths of these courageous Americans makes is something they are unable to comprehend.

    Take a listen to Marine and Purple Heart Recipient Nick Popoditch (who was there when Saddam’s statue was brought down in Baghdad) sum up the greatness of our military and the True Grit & Selfless Warriors who fill it’s ranks:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IoFvBXUamuM

    Today, I will lower that beautiful flag that flies in my front yard and I will make sure my grandchildren know why our flag is lowered. We will gather and we will remember and give thanks to those who gave their lives to ensure we live freely to enjoy this beautiful and protected way of life they provided us.

    It is the Soldier, who risks his life, who gives us our freedom!

    So after today, I will not forget that fact and I will be sure to honor these brave Americans who are willing to die to give us this precious freedom: I will honor them by voting!

    Unfortunately for our military and for all of us, there were those in 2012 (4 million, it is reported), who sat home and did not vote in one of the most important Presidential elections ever in the history of this great republic. Obama told us he would fundamentally change this country and he made a good start in his first 4 years and he made it clear he would continue down his path, if given another 4 years. Those 4 million who stayed home and didn’t vote are the ones yelling the loudest now against all that Obama is doing! I hear some of these folks saying the same thing again, that if they don’t get the pure candidate they want, they will stay home again. These folks run in Conservative circles so I have come to the conclusion they must be Marxists who have successfully infiltrated the conservative movement because surely, SURELY, nobody could be that naïve that they didn’t believe Obama meant what he said back in 2012, and surely they would have now realized that staying home and not voting is a mistake?! Surely!!!

    I challenge anyone of these folks to convince me that their decision to stay home and not vote was good for their family, our military and our country. Their decision, in my opinion, was a dereliction of their duty to their family, our military and our country. You see, along with our military, we have a duty too, and that is to engage in elections to help protect our freedom, our way of life, and most of all, to protect and support the very brave men and women who keep us safe and free! One thing is for certain, if you don’t exercise your right to vote, you really have no room to complain. Unfortunately for the rest of us, and especially our military fighting in far off lands, we all suffer now the reckless and horrendous consequences of their dereliction of duty as American citizens!

    Please, on this Memorial Day, remember our noble Heroes who have given their all and please make a commitment to honor our brave Warriors and the sacrifices they and their families make, by voting in future elections. At the very least, we owe them that!

    AND with regard to those who wear the uniform of Blue:

    May God Bless & Watch over our Police. Under this bizarre president and his dudes and dudettes administration, our brave men and women in Blue are now subject to the same restrictive rules of engagement that our military has been under. We all know how this will play out, Obama and his policies of appeasement toward all those who are evil will continue to costs precious American lives.

    It is time for the Police to suffer the “Blue Flu”. Let those in Baltimore, Ferguson and “Chiraq”, who don’t like the Police and resent their protection, let them defend their neighborhoods!

    With a Grateful Heart for all those who put on a uniform everyday to protect and keep us safe, my family is forever grateful to all of you!

    God Bless All Those Who Wear The Uniform To Protect and Keep us Safe, May God Bless & Watch YOU! On Memorial Day & Everyday, may we as a nation ALWAYS be grateful for those who gave their lives to keep us safe!

    Freedom is not free, it is paid for by the sacrifice of brave Americans who love us so much they are willing to lay down their lives to protect us and keep us free!

    seekthetruth to MinuteGal
    Hi Friend, Yes Pamela has the facts, which are so hard to come by by the Liberals! Pamela can hold her own with those who always try to paint her as a Muslim hater. I was with Pamela when she was personally defending and bringing attention to a young Muslim girl who was killed by her parents for having a relationship with a Christian boy, by another young Muslim girl who was killed by her father for supposedly embarrassing him! Pamela is a true patriot who is putting her life on the line for truth about the most important issue we face..National Security!
    ***************

    From Pamela:
    Look. I am sure you have heard about what happened in Garland, Texas. Two jihadists wanted to replicate and ramp up what happened in Paris, by murdering scores of patriotic Americans who were standing in defense of free speech. They were met with an utterly authentic response. The media has been waging jihad against the defenders of freedom, primarily me, but that's only a device they are using to destroy anyone who speaks against the sharia and jihad. In the wake of our Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest, ISIS issued a death threat against me. They called me khanzaar — pig — which is the word Muhammad used of his victims before he slaughtered Jews. They threatened to murder also anyone associated with me, anyone who defends me, and anyone who supports our work.

    In other words, they've declared war against America.

    The media, on the other hand, is aligned with the jihad force. They're cheering and agitating for my demise — some news outlets have even asked me for my posthumous remarks. They have been viciously attacking me and Robert Spencer, blaming us for the attack on us.

    They are not going to win. We are not going to let them win. If we had a responsible media, it would report on the positive developments in light of this terrorist attack: the jihadists were killed. By drawing them out, we exposed their network, without getting anyone killed. The FBI is now going after sources. They are gleaning intel from their computers as we speak. We smoked out a terror structure. The FBI has put more American terror suspects under constant surveillance following the deadly attack. Every city across the U.S. has “subjects of concern” under heightened scrutiny, and the military is taking the threat seriously enough to raise the threat level to Bravo — the highest level since 9/11. The terror network that hit us has now expanded to include roots in Minneapolis.

    People say we “provoked” the jihadis. But it has since come out that they were already looking for targets to hit. If they hadn't hit us, they would have hit a much less protected target, as did the jihadist Amedy Coulibaly in the Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket in Paris, and the jihadist Man Haron Monis in the Lindt Chocolat Cafe in Sydney, Australia. The jihadis in Garland weren't provoked by us — they are already provoked. Our event just smoked them out. If we had not had such extensive security, many more people would have died — either at our event or somewhere else. Instead, the only dead were two jihadis, and a jihad network is exposed.

    All that from one little art exhibit.

    With just one small, relatively obscure presentation, America has been made aware that the threat is here. America has been made aware of the virulence of the war on free speech. Obama cannot ignore and excuse terrorism that is committed in the name of Islam, and we exposed the quislings and apologists for jihad terror among the political, cultural and media elites.

    This has come with an enormous cost.

    We are now marked. Marked for life. And we need to take extraordinary measures to protect ourselves, and above all, our work for freedom. This involves costs that are so far beyond astronomical, they take our breath away.

    Yet this is not negotiable. The NYPD and our own security team have told us in no uncertain terms that specific measures must be taken.

    We cannot rely on the Obama administration. The FBI has not even bothered to contact us. Clearly, if we held positions the administration favored, we would be under guard sent by the government right now. But we do not.

    That means that it's on us. And that means you, because we cannot do it without you. If you support our work, if you support the stand we have taken, we need your help now more than we ever did before. This is going to require a small army. And not just for the next month, but for the foreseeable future.

    This is not just about protecting some people from being attacked and killed. This is about taking a stand and showing the world that violence, murder and threats will not win.

    We need your help now more than ever. Now is the time. This is a gamechanger. This is a new era. Few have realized just how different everything is after Garland: now Americans will have to watch their back every time they do anything that Muslim fanatics think “offends Islam.”

    Strike a blow against that. Strike a blow for freedom. Every dime will be used for security — nothing else. Send your tax-deductible donation via Paypal to americanfreedomdefense@aol.com Or send to:

    Pamela also remains in my prayers for safety. She, like our Military and Law Enforcement officers is putting her life on the line to keep us safe, but Pamela is doing it in a different way. She is and has been trying to educate us and our fellow Americans about the danger we face with Islamic Terrorism.

    My question is, When are we all are going to realize that our National Security is the most important issue we face?
    I for one will be supporting the Republican candidate in the Primary who puts our National Security and support of our Military and Law Enforcement FIRST!!

    Couldn't agree with you more! We will see ALL the liberals show their true colors as they attack a true patriot named Pamela Geller instead of attacking the Islamic Terrorists and standing up for Free Speech!

    My friend Bev sent this out to her lists, and I know I could not have said it better!!
    ****************************
    “The Real Story: Pamela Geller Exposes The Danger We Are In”

    Following the terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, all Americans should be up in arms! We are constantly being told by this administration that they are watching those who visit Syria or Pakistan and then come back into this country. We are told that these radicals and their movements are under a watchful eye and we have nothing to worry about.

    If Pam Geller has done nothing else, she has caused every American to be alerted to the danger we all are in. It is obvious that the jihadis who committed the latest terrorist attack on our soil should have been under watchful eye, BUT THEY WEREN'T AND THAT SHOULD CONCERN EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN!!!

    This administration constantly claims they are “watching” those who come from this country and go to terrorists “territories”, and then are allowed to return here. It is an outrage that this administration is so cavalier and careless with regard to the safety of every one of us!!! This is the real story to come out of Garland, Texas!

    http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/04/us/garland-mohammed-drawing-contest-shooting/index.html

    “In 2011, Simpson was sentenced to three years of probation after his conviction on the terror-related charge, court records show.”

    Pam Geller has exposed the dangerous situation all Americans are in under this reckless administration! We have now found out that they are not watching those who engage in terrorist activity because if they were, one policeman would not have been shot in the foot and there would not be two dead terrorists!!! If this administration were truly watching those who engage in terrorist activities in this country, the terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, would not have happened.

    Please pick up your phones and call the White House, demand this administration take care of their number one responsibility, and that is to safeguard and protect the lives of all Americans! Let them know you are sick and tired of this administration's concern and preoccupation for the terrorists in GITMO and you expect their focus be on the safety of all Americans!!! It's clear this administration needs to be reminded of their duty to protect and safeguard all Americans!

    Per usual, I agree with you totally!!

    I for one will back with everything that is in me the Republican candidate who wins the Republican nomination! NO MATTER WHO IT IS! YES, no matter who it is!

    My sweet hubby and I were sitting just 20 feet in front of Andrew Breitbart when he said the following in 2012, before the Republican nominee was known for the 2012 election:
    “Anyone that’s willing to stand next to me to fight the Progressive left, I will be in that bunker, and if you’re not in that bunker because you’re not satisfied with this candidate, more than shame on you, you’re on the other side.”
    Andrew passed away before the 2012 election, but as he looked down from heaven I know he was dissapointed in those conservatives who stayed home and/or refused to vote for the 2012 Republican Nominee. They did not help us fight the Progressive/Marxist/Left!

    I think many who profess to want another Reagan, are not quite familiar with the “all” of Reagan.

  • Peshawar school attack: Taliban 'burn teacher alive in front of pupils and behead children'

    I totally agree with these comments from my dear friend, Beverly Perlson of The Band Of Mothers!

    *****************

    “Many of the soldiers and officers fighting the Taliban have their children in this school so this is an attempt to demoralize the military,” he said.

    As a mother and a grandparent, I am sick to death by this.

    I look at the weakest and most cowardly President ever in the history of the great and strong America, who was re-elected because 4 million purists in the so called Conservative movement stayed home and didn't vote. As a result, the most dangerous President this country has ever seen was re-elected!!!

    My heart goes out to these families. I always feared what would happen when the draw down of our Troops started and how many brave Afghan and Iraqi Soldiers who have stood with us and fought, were left behind. I'm afraid we are about to find out.

    I have been sick watching our Sons trying to fight a war with their hands tied behind their backs. When this President and his dangerous administration started rewriting the military training manuals taking out any reference to the very sick ideology that is fueling the horrendous killing and be-headings of innocent people, including our fellow Americans, well what result did we all expect?!!!! When this President and his party referred to the slaughter of our Sons and Daughters at Ft. Hood by a terrorist, as workplace violence, I thought for sure that would get the attention of all Americans and we would take care of this nutcase in the White House in 2012. Unfortunately for all of us, we had “purists” in the Conservative movement who recklessly stayed home, didn't vote, and helped re-elect the most dangerous President ever in the history of this country. We cannot afford to make this stupid mistake again! We all hate the economy we are suffering, but dear God, don't we all love our children and our families more than anything else??!!!! That Americans could risk the safety of their children and families to stand on so called “principles”??!! What is principled about helping to re-elect a man who has shown repeatedly that his principles are always sympathetic to the butchering terrorists whose hands are covered in the blood of our Sons and Daughters?!!

    This latest stunt by Senator Feinstein to release the interrogation report of terrorists who had everything to do with killing 3000 Americans, is reprehensible. The Dems and Obama have repeatedly used the argument that they must close Gitmo because it is a recruiting tool for the terrorists. Well, if you follow their bleeding heart liberal thinking, then they just were instrumental in providing to the terrorists the biggest recruiting tool ever!

    Those of us who care about the safety of Americans know how reckless the Democrats and Obama are when it comes to protecting the lives of all Americans. What is their excuse for the terrorist's cruel and murderous actions way before 9/11 and Gitmo: there was no Gitmo when they bombed the USS Cole, the Embassy attacks, the Marine Barracks bombings, Kobar Towers??!!!!!

    And how is it that they are so concerned about waterboarding psycho terrorists yet their guy in the White House is blowing Iraqis and Afghans, and MANY INNOCENT CIVILIIANS, to smithereens with his drones??!! Where are their bleeding hearts over all those drones being dropped??!!! Their hypocrisy is beyond me.

    For the sake of our children and grandchildren, Conservatives must stick together NOW and UNIFY to take the White House back from the dangerous Democrats in 2016!!! The economy means nothing if you don't have your freedom and liberty. Please, talk to our military, listen to them and those whose boots have been on the ground desperately trying to keep us all safe and they will tell you that it is imperative that Conservatives take the White House away from the Democrats in 2016!

    For the sake and safety of our children and grandchildren, it is my hope ALL Conservatives will UNIFY over the next two years because I can promise you, that is the one thing the Democrats are NOT counting on. What they are hoping for is more dissension and disunity among Conservatives over the next two years and they will use that division as a recruiting tool to keep the White House in the hands of the Democrats. If that happens, I believe that is the final nail in the coffin for our children and grandchildren.

    For me, the Ft. Hood shooting was a nail in the coffin and I thought for sure that all Americans understood what danger we are were in when a terrorist shot down our Sons on this soil and the Democrats refused to call this a terrorist attack!!!

    Keep your children close, stay safe and please help us win back the White House in 2016. If we don't win the White House in 2016, I'm afraid we can get use to terrorism on our shores and God help us all if our children are attacked. We must do everything in our power to protect them and unity and voting in 2016 is absolutely imperative!

    I send this on behalf of all the brave men and women who are doing everything humanly possible, with hands tied behind their backs, to keep us safe. How about we all pull together and help them out!!!

    Please consider making a donation and please forward this to all your lists. I have had the honor of meeting SFC Soldier Kelly Stewart and his father, who is a retired Veteran of Special Forces. The conviction of this Green Beret is based on a lying accuser whose friends, in post trial testimony, gave witness and testimony that she lied! The jury was NOT a jury of Stewart's peers at all, but consisted of jury members who had just come off a deployment with the Prosecutor!

    Please help us fight for this Soldier. SFC Kelly Stewart served over 12 years in the most dangerous areas of the world to keep us all safe. Now he needs our help and our support! Please call your Congressmen and Senators and if you live in Florida or Virginia, please call these two Congressmen (below) and ask them to intervene and help Kelly and his father get new eyes on this wrongful conviction.

    Virginia Congressman Robert Hurt (202) 225-4711
    Florida Congressman Richard Nugent (202) 225-1002.

    Thank You and again, PLEASE forward to all your lists! What happened to SFC Soldier Kelly Stewart is just plain wrong!

    11/24/2014 10:45:41 AM PST · 25 of 51
    seekthetruth to Adder
    I believe you have it right! Hagel was not doing exactly as Obama wants. Here is a view from my friend Bev, and I agree with her totally!!
    *******************

    Hagel just isn't releasing the terrorists fast enough for Obama!!!

    http://www.news.yahoo.com/obama-goal-gitmo-closure-stalled-pentagon-070252607—politics.html;_ylt=AwrBT9UkCUhUNEAA.hdXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTExcTdidDdsBHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA2JmMQR2dGlkA1VJQzFfMQ

    “My name goes on that document , that's a big responsibility,” Hagel said earlier this year. “I'm taking my time. I owe that to the American people, I owe that to the President.”

    No Secretary Hagel, you got that last part wrong. Obama expected you to do what HE ordered and that is to release those 79 terrorists HE cleared for transfer, and do it quickly! How dare you take your time on HIS order!!!

    Folks, there are now 143 terrorists left in Gitmo. That means the new Defense Secretary must release 72 terrorists once he is appointed.

    Seems the one question that should be asked of the nominee is “Are you going to sign off on the release of those 72 terrorists Obama has cleared for transfer?”

    I truly believe Obama wants the Gitmo detainees here on this soil, preferably at Thomson Prison, and once there are less than 100 terrorists left in Gitmo, he plans to move them here. They have hired a warden at Thomson and they are currently beefing up the security perimeter there. I know, I know, he isn't allowed to bring the terrorists here.

    Well, Obama wasn't allowed to trade terrorists and he did that. AND, as the President of the United States, he is suppose to uphold the Constitution and he just defied the Constitution with his latest move on immigration.

    We have lost so many of America's Sons and Daughters in this war and it will be an absolute slap in the face of their most noble sacrifice to bring any terrorists here. Our Troops fight and risk their lives, and so many have given their precious lives, to keep the terrorists away from us!! It will be the absolute epitome of disgrace to their sacrifice if any of the remaining terrorists end up here!

    Not to mention, we continue to keep our Sons locked up in Leavenworth as the worst of the worst terrorists are released! I knew the gravity of their resolve to empty Gitmo when the legislative director for Congresswoman Edwards, Chris Schlosser, told me and Sgt Miller's mother in a meeting last April: “But We're Trying To Close Gitmo!!!” He said that sternly and boldly as an answer to my question to him, “What do you have to say to this mother whose son continues to sit in Leavenworth as your guy in the White House just released 5 of the worst terrorists?”

    We have paid a Heavy price for the re-election of Obama. Obama and the Dems counted on those “purists” Conservatives who refused to vote for Romney, and in doing so, helped re-elect Obama. Now Obama and the Dems are counting on those folks again to disrupt and help divide our party.

    I'll say it again, we all better stick together to fight the progressive left! Like Andrew Breitbart said, “you're either with us or you're on the other side!”
    As we move forward, I believe UNITY is the only way we win! Stick together, like the Dems do, no matter what! Or play right into the hands of the Democrats and suffer even more horrendous consequences!

    The reason I asked folks to join me and my friends by making a donation if they can is that I know Kelly needs help. His parents are helping all they can so we also help any way we can. I know how even small donations can help as when just 10 folks give $10 it is good help.

    Thank you so much for your reply! You are wise to talk with your children. Of course Kelly regrets his mistake, and I will know there will be some folks who would think he deserved punishment. Then there is the question, how much punishment and whom involved is really telling the truth?

    The fact that Kelly was not able to provide information during the trial to defend himself against the charge of rape and kidnapping is just unreal.

    I know Kelly's heart and the only way readers here can get close to knowing Kelly's heart need to take the time to read the letters written by those who know and served with him.

    Thank you for caring! If folks take the time to read this thread, and especially John Stuwart’s letter in support of Kelly, they will be as outraged as I am. The fact that the Army is requiring Kelly to pay back $25,000 of bonus pay he received BEFORE his conviction is so hard to take! That was bonus pay Kelly received for his exemplary actions as a soldier prior to the one mistake he made.

    If anyone reading this thread wishes me to tell them more details I know in support of Kelly that I CANNOT SHARE here, PLEASE FreepMail me.

    My hubby and I met Kelly and his parents two years ago, and have been helping along with others to bring attention to this travesty.

    An important fact for everyone to know: The reason those who knew the accuser did not come forward to testify until “Post Trial” is because they never thought Kelly would be convicted! They knew the accuser was a nut case and liar and were sure the jury would rule in favor of Kelly.

    I have Florida Freeper friends whom I know joined me in donating to help Kelly. We can't give much but know every little bit helps. Thanks again for helping to bring attention to Kelly's case.

    Please read this letter written by John Stewart in support of his son, Kelly Stewart.

    CMSgt (retired) Johnny E. Stewart Beverly Hills, FL 34465

    August 24, 2014

    Secretary John M. McHugh 101 Army Pentagon Washington, D.C. 20310-0101 Secretary McHugh:

    As a former three decade serviceman and Vietnam War veteran I am not in the habit of circumventing military command channels, but out of complete and utter desperation I seek your assistance.

    Please allow me to provide a brief background of my son SFC Kelly A. Stewart who proudly and honorably served the United States Army for over 12 years including tours in Kosovo, Macedonia and multiple tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom where his decorations included the Bronze Star while performing as a Combat Medic and later as a Sniper with 10th Special Forces Group. After his last deployment he was assigned to Germany as a weapons instructor to foreign national special warfare personnel.

    At that point complete tragedy struck both he and our entire family, so tragic that a well-known author I’ve never met learned details of it from trial transcripts and wrote a best-selling novel that has received rave reviews. His name is Bob McCarty, a former military officer, who authored the book Three Days In August which can be found on Amazon and in bookstores. Every single person who has read the book, from government official to private citizen, has been in complete shock of what occurred and extremely disturbed by our inability to convince the Army to correct this injustice.

    As briefly as possible, I will explain what occurred and why I am seeking your help.

    At his new assignment in Germany and being fluent in the language, my son visited a local discotheque after his duty hours accompanied by fellow special warfare troops and as the night progressed he and others met young ladies, some of whom accompanied them to the hotel where they were being billeted during the special duty assignment. The young German lady accompanying my son told friends she was leaving to spend the night with my son, voluntarily, o to include consensual sex. In her possession at bedside in the room was her cellphone, my son’s cellphone and a room phone. All readily accessible when my son was out of the room in the toilet, shower, etc. Military officers residing next door reported they heard nothing out of the ordinary throughout the night. The following morning she gave my son her personal cellphone number to call for future rendezvous. I wish the story ended there. Sadly, my son never called her again and it led to some unbelievable events destroying many lives. What my son was unaware of that night was the fact this young lady had been recently committed to a mental institution obviously more than likely leading to her irrational behavior over the coming months. As proof, nearly 3 months later after she told her best friend and roommate that after the night with my son she had “finally met her Master”, she filed rape charges against my son with the German police. Charges refuted in statements by her roommate from conversations and phone calls between them. Both my son and I were informed by everyone in the military community not to worry about it due to her medical situation and the fact there was no proof of any possible crime being committed, to include witnesses or physician evaluations. Only her lone statement was basis for the accusation, on which the German government refused to prosecute and simply turned the issue over to U.S. military authorities to be resolved. Again, we were informed time and again it was not a serious problem and we should not be concerned.

    Unfortunately it was indeed a problem because suddenly my son was notified of a court-martial, one that was formed and took place under some unbelievable circumstances and events. I refer you to the aforementioned novel by Mr. McCarty for the lengthy details and I would be more than happy to forward you a copy if you wish. Anyway, to summarize events:

    a. We were unable to introduce the mental illness facts or health records into the trial because Germany will not allow it without “victim” release and, of course, she would not do so.

    b. The “victim” repeatedly committed perjury on the stand, so much so that her best friend and employer filed statements refuting the “victims” statements of what occurred that night and what had occurred in her life after the supposed event. No investigation was implemented to confirm this point.

    c. The “victims’ own U.S. Army appointed interpreter and counselor contacted us directly after the trial and demanded to be able to testify at later appeals AGAINST the “victim” to refute the her statements and behavior. Sadly, that GS-9 employee was reduced in rank two grades for stepping forward with the truth and later retired. No investigation was implemented to confirm the employee’s statements.

    d. The selected court-martial board membership was obviously prejudiced and repeatedly challenged by my son’s defense team on areas that included having participants on the Board who served under senior members of the Board in their regular duty assignments. Too, directions given to Board members were unbelievably suspect and obviously prejudiced the case. As example, the following questions were asked of Board members by the Senior member:

    (1) Does a non-response to all questions indicate an intended guilty verdict regardless of there being no evidence of any crime being committed??? (Negative response from all members).

    (2) Do any of you think that if a woman doesn't immediately report a sexual assault, then she must be lying or have something to hide? (Negative response from all members).

    (3) Do any of you think it's uncommon for the victim of sexual assault to wait months before reporting a crime? (Negative response from all members).

    (4) Is there anyone here who would have difficulty finding the accused guilty without physical evidence, like semen, blood, hair samples? (Negative response from all members).

    (5) Is there anyone here who would have difficulty finding the accused guilty without medical evidence, like a rape kit, sexual assault nurse notes, etc.? (Negative response from all members).

    (6) Is there anyone here who would have a problem finding the accused guilty because the only eyewitness is the victim? (Negative response from all members).

    In other words, an American military justice system can convict and individual without proof of a crime, without witnesses, with no medical evidence, without physical evidence, without the possibility of the “victim” committing perjury, and a guilty verdict can be achieved. I think we would agree a fair trial under these parameters would be impossible and it is a terrible black eye placed on the military justice system. Unfortunately, without evidence, without witnesses, without medical proof, and the complete ignorance of actual facts, with perjury and an inability to introduce evidence of mental instability, my son was convicted and sentenced to 8 years in prison. Because this resulted in the destruction of his military career and life itself, he attempted suicide twice before being imprisoned.

    We did file appeals, received some reduction in sentence and an upgrade of his Dishonorable Discharge to Bad Conduct but he still spent 2 ½ years in Leavenworth before probation was issued. He is now clear of probation, but life has been hell to say the least. As a convicted sex offender there is no life. For the past couple years he lived in an unheated old camper I had in Virginia mountains with no running water and few amenities while working for my brother at minimum wage levels with no healthcare. However, in the past few months he finally met an understanding employer who accepted his situation and after talking to my son, plus having read the Three Days In August narrative of facts, he immediately hired my son. Unfortunately, at a scale of $10.50 an hour this is truly not a great improvement but better than he had been experiencing over the two previous years. We did find him an unfinished underground basement in a house to rent, which I pay for, where he would be somewhat protected from the elements and have some semblance of life. We also purchased an old car for transportation to the new job, pay his insurance premiums until he gets on his feet and from what little money he has my son was able to purchase some old furniture from local thrift shops and install an old wood burning stove for heat. Frankly, it has been an exhaustive financial situation by all of us. Personally, my wife and I have lost our life’s savings, 401k investment and private insurance savings to proceed through the long legal system of appeals and to simply help feed and clothe my son over the years during imprisonment and as he returned to society.

    Last month, we finally believed though a $10.50 hour wage in his new job was not much, at least he was finally progressing in life. He now had a warm bed to sleep in and was finally able to properly eat. Additionally, we applied for health benefits through the VA for the period of his honorable service because he has many, many health issues resulting from service in Iraq that range from sever PTSD, to physical injuries from combat. Though we received a VA reply quite some time ago indicating they were reviewing our request, absolutely nothing has been heard since. Hopefully, it will be approved someday and we can actually begin to believe my son’s life will substantially improve by getting needed healthcare for military related problems.

    Our belief that things were finally improving for my son were completely dashed today when we received the attached letters from DoD and from the Defense Finance and Accounting Center with content that will entirely destroy what is left of my son’s life. As you can see, it is a directive to recoup bonus paid during his last enlistment. Though it does not state how this was computed, or what period it was computed for, it is undoubtedly a repayment impossibility. My son has no money, has a take-home income that is less than what the monthly payment would actually be in the recoup and he could never, ever, pay that amount of money within his current situation that has no foreseen improvement for the rest of his life. He will simply be relegated to return to jail for non-payment at some point in time rather than continuing his courageous attempts to return to normal society after having been unjustly convicted. It is my hope the U.S. Army did not implement this action as a result of our request for medical support, but is rather suspicious that after so many years it is brought forward shortly after our application for the medical service.

    Obviously, I am asking for your help and I realistically have no one else to turn to. Quite frankly I could easily use media to highlight what has happened and in my positions here in Florida and nationally as a fairly well known veterans support advocate I probably could gain some attention that would reflect poorly on our military and to my son’s situation. But, I remain military through and through and come to you in the interest of integrity for help and understanding of the problem.

    I do believe this amount of money should be reviewed for proper amount regarding what unearned portion of his enlistment was used to determine this amount and specifics of that determination, which should have been clearly outlined in the letter. We have been unable to determine how the amount was even computed because my son’s records were “lost” at imprisonment. He has formally requested copies through the VA but nothing has been received and in particular we are trying to get a copy of his reenlistment contract at that time. In fairness, until the amount is confirmed as proper, payments should be delayed until the information is properly provided in the event an error was made in computation. But, more importantly, I firmly believe this recoupment should be completely absolved to allow this soldier who faithfully served America for over a decade, including as a decorated veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and convicted by injustice, to be able to attempt to live a normal life once more. A point to consider is that nearly all of the bonus money was spent for legal support in Germany during the trial, later appeals, family support, and related expenses.

    Sir, I am not very familiar with DoD and Army regulations regarding this situation but it is my understanding there may be DoD regulation indicating the Secretary may waive a member’s repayment bonus. If not, then it truly must be addressed from a point of human understanding and compassion and an appreciation of one’s sacrifice for duty for over a decade with honorable service.

    So, Secretary McHugh, I ask for your help. No, sir, I beg for your help for my son who was a dedicated a professional soldier unjustly convicted and is attempting with all his heart to return to normal society. This recoup process is a complete and total impossibility and will only lead to complete failure of a human being, a probable return to prison and bankruptcy for all concerned. Is it worth it? Please, please help my son by absolving this debt from consideration in appreciation of his honorable periods of service to America prior to the supposed event. Needless to say, a complete investigation of his entire conviction process needs to be conducted.

    Thank you for your attention to this matter.

    Renee's letter brought tears to my eyes too. She and her husband (Derrick's Stepdad) continue to do whatever they can to bring attention to Derrick's case. It just sickens me that while Obama and Hagel release terrorists from GITMO at the rate of over 70 at a time, we Still have 10 of our own locked up in Leavenworth! So terrorists go back to their families to fight our soldiers again in the war zone, while our own can't go back to their families. AND they certainly would not be a danger to anyone!!

    And now Obama and Durbin are wanting to transfer terrorists from GITMO to Thompson Prison in Illinois!!

    FROM MY FRIEND BEVERLY PERLSON:

    When I talked with Sgt. Miller’s mother last night at 8:30, she was $30 away from our goal to raise $900! By the end of the night she received $900 in donations! Derrick’s mom and stepdad will be spending Thanksgiving holiday with their son at Ft Leavenworth! God Bless Each and Everyone of You! Thank you! Beverly

    Derrick’s mom posted this on Facebook last night:

    My husband Craig and I have been working very hard over the summer months to raise the funds we need to visit Derrick over the Thanksgiving weekend. You see, the United American Patriots have a travel stipend that they provide to each family that they help, and we try to leave as much of those funds as possible available for Derrick’s children to visit him when his ex-wife can take them. We were very excited to be very near our fundraising goal when, as life often does, we were dealt some untimely financial setbacks in the form of major repairs to our vehicle, and a furnace replacement for our home. With a heavy heart, we used our hard earned travel savings to pay for the urgent and immediate needs, and prayed to God for a way for us to visit Derrick so that he would not have to spend his Thanksgiving alone...
    He answered that prayer in the form of YOU! Thanks to an email appeal by our friend Beverly Perlson of Band of Mothers, a compassionate response from my church family (love you Kim!), and the wonderful support of folks right here on Derrick’s page (thanks Brent!), in less than 24 hours so many generous people responded to the call that we now have the funds we need to book our trip! Please excuse me if this message gets a little wonky, as I am once again typing with tears in my eyes, feebly trying to tell you how much this act of kindness means to us. We will be reserving our trip today, and when I spoke to Derrick last night and told him what’s happened, he laughed with joy to know that we are coming after all. This outpouring of generosity means the world to us, and when we wrap our arms around our son and thank God for the chance to see him this Thanksgiving, we will add a special prayer of thanks for the incredible, unwavering and steadfast support of folks like YOU! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts

    Messages have been sent out regarding the egregious life sentence Sgt. Derrick Miller is serving for his defensive actions on the battlefield in Afghanistan. His mother bakes cupcakes to raise money to visit Derrick. She has saved $800 toward the trip her and Derrick’s stepdad hope to make for the Thanksgiving Day holiday. Hotel and airfare is expensive. She is short $900. Sgt. Derrick Miller will sit in Leavenworth for another holiday and it sure would be nice if we could help his family spend the holiday with him. Thank you for any help you can send him.Please folks, if you can help them with any amount at all it is greatly appreciated. Every little bit helps, if many of us can chip in..

    “The election will depend upon how many people actually vote for the libertarian. I have a felling that when push comes to shove, they will go the D or R route instead.”

    I agree. And I hope those across the country who plan to vote for the Independent candidates because the Republican isn't “conservative enough” will realize they might as well give their vote to the Dem candidate, because that is exactly what they would be doing if they vote for the Independent!
