    “I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. Only with your...

  • Obama under fire for being 'proud generally' of troops

    President Obama's comments to a Denver TV station that he is "proud generally" of U.S. forces in Afghanistan is angering his conservative critics who were already riled by his apology over the accidental burning of Quorans by troops. "Generally proud of our troops? What a loser," said nationally syndicated radio host Michael Brown, the former Bush-era FEMA boss. "I am generally disgusted by this man." Katie Pavlich, the news editor of the conservative website Townhall, added, "The calculated shooting of innocent civilians is nothing to be proud of, however, President Obama's generalization of the U.S. military as a whole because...

    Give ear to my words, O LORD; consider my groaning. Give attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to you do I pray. O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch. For you are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not dwell with you. The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers. You destroy those who speak lies; the LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man. But I, through the abundance of your steadfast...

  • Trashing Tricare...Obama to cut healthcare benefits for active duty and retired US military

    Free Beacon ^ | 2/27/2012 | Bill Gertz
    The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges. The disparity in treatment between civilian and uniformed personnel is causing a backlash within the military that could undermine recruitment and retention. The proposed increases in health care payments by service members, which must be approved by Congress, are part of the...

    SIERRA VISTA—— Tanya Conde’s kindergarten class at Bella Vista Elementary School says the pledge of allegiance every morning, but until recently it was little more than an exercise in rote memorization. Now it means much more as the students associate the words with the freedoms they enjoy and the people who strive to protect them. Sporting red, white and blue outfits, Conde’s students wrote letters to three special soldiers on Friday and filled up care boxes with food to send to them, in honor of Presidents’ Day. It was the culmination of two weeks spent learning about their country and...

    The Shark Tank: President Obama’s latest policy outrage makes no attempt to hide his contempt for our military, as he is ordering that our troops serving overseas in war zones overseas are not to receive combat pay unless they are being shot at. A Marine who lives in Florida has just posted a note on Facebook which stated that he received a letter from his PayPal account that he would only be receiving his Hazard pay (Imminent Danger Pay) if he is actually in a hostile area and at risk of being Shot at. So I just got a letter...

    Archbishop Timothy Broglio, who leads the Roman Catholic Archdiocese for the Military Services, wrote a letter to be read at all Sunday Masses for U.S. military personnel around the world that said that a regulation issued by the Obama Administration under the new federal health care law was “a blow” to a freedom that U.S. troops have not only fought to defend but for which some have recently died in battle. “It is a blow to a freedom that you have fought to defend and for which you have seen your buddies fall in battle,” the archbishop wrote.

    The United States has sent some 12,000 soldiers to Libya, in the first phase of deployments to the oil-rich North African nation. According to Asharq Alawsat, the troops landed in the eastern oil port city of Brega. Although the deployment is said to be aimed at generating stability and security in the region, the troops are expected to take control of the country's key oil fields and strategic ports. Brega, the site of an important oil refinery, serves as a major export hub for Libyan oil. The town is also one of the five oil terminals in the eastern half...
