China to US..."watch this, nyah, nyah, nyah, yah!"

Written by Fox News on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  This event, similar to the one in April when a Russian aircraft buzzed one of our ships, happens only because our enemies no longer fear or respect us.  The message is loud and clear; “…anytime, anywhere, we own you.”  

Not even during the Carter Administration were we this weakened and vulnerable.

Fox News:  The Pentagon said Friday that a Chinese fighter jet made “several passes” by a U.S. Navy aircraft earlier this week off the coast of China in international airspace, baring its weapons and coming within mere feet of the U.S. plane.

Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby said Washington has lodged a protest to China through diplomatic channels, calling the maneuver “very close” and “very dangerous.”

“Not only is it unprofessional, it’s unsafe,” Kirby said.

Kirby said the Chinese jet made several close passes by the Navy P-8 Poseidon plane, coming within 30 feet of it. He said the Chinese jet did a “barrel roll” maneuver over the top of the Poseidon and also passed across the nose of the Navy plane, exposing the belly of the fighter in a way apparently designed to show that it was armed.

Acuity Insurance flies US Flag in a big way

Written by The Patriots Press on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  In a time when so many American companies side with those who would diminish and ultimately destroy us, it is very encouraging to see one company make a very serious Patriotic statement.

Without a whole lot of fanfare and publicity, Acuity Insurance Co. of Wisconsin took it upon themselves to have the tallest Flag Pole in No. America constructed at their Headquarters in Sheboygan, WI.  

The Patriots Press salutes Acuity Insurance and hopes more and more companies will follow their lead.

2nd Amendment upheld in DC

Written by Fox News on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  Saturday was a great day for the US Constitution!  In a ruling yesterday, Federal Judge Frederick Scullin Jr. sided with the US Constitution and the 2nd Amendment saying “there is no longer any basis on which this court can conclude that the District of Columbia's total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny.”

No doubt there will be an appeal; however, with the ban on guns in the Nation’s Capital finally being undone, it is clear that gun bans are rightfully on their way to the history books.

Fox News:  A federal judge in the District of Columbia on Saturday overturned the city’s total ban on residents being allowed to carry firearms outside their home in a landmark decision for gun-rights activists.

Judge Frederick Scullin Jr. wrote in his ruling in Palmer v. District of Columbia that the right to bear arms extends outside the home, therefore gun-control laws in the nation’s capital are “unconstitutional.”

Dialing for de$erter$...Bergdahl may get huge windfall?!

Written by Fox News on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  Someone help me out here.  According to Fox News, if found not to be a deserter, Bowe Bergdahl could receive up to $350K tax free for his time in 'captivity.'  The breakdown is $200K in back pay and a 'bonus' $150K?!  

My first question is how the hell does 5 years of a Private promoted to Sgt. equate to $200K in back pay?  Then, maybe I’m wrong, but since when do POW’s receive a 'bonus’?!

Fox News:  Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl could have a tax-free $350,000 dropped into his bank account if the current investigation into his disappearance from his base in Afghanistan was not desertion, and if he is deemed to have been a prisoner of war for the five years he was held by Islamic militants, Fox News has learned.

The 28-year-old soldier, for whom the U.S. traded five senior Taliban operatives held at Guantanamo Bay, was set to return to active duty Monday after spending six weeks in medical rehab at Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio. 

“Essentially he’ll be working a desk job,” Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren told reporters at the Pentagon Monday.
