Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi saga...a national disgrace

Written by Fox News on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  The family of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi as well as We the People of the United States have been waiting far too long for the release of this young man.

In case you live in a cave, here is a snapshot of a young decent guy who happens to be a United States Marine that made a wrong turn into Mexico about six months ago.  He wasn’t doing anything wrong, he just made a simple mistake and got on the wrong exit ramp…he happened to be carrying several of his legally owned firearms; but in Mexico only the drug lords are allowed to have them and he was subsequently arrested.

Since that time, his plight has been ignored by the administration of Barack Hussein Obama.  Pleas from his mother and family as well as several Congressmen have gone unanswered, while the president of Mexico has recently been wined and dined by the Governor of California.

We the people are being side tracked by many distractions, but this is a front burner issue and a national disgrace.  Especially at a time when we are hosting upwards of 12 million illegal trespassers from that country, there needs to be a hue and cry across the country on this…Mr. President, forget the fund raisers, put away your golf clubs, pick up your phone and pen, and bring this man home.

Fox News:  SAN DIEGO - There's no dispute retired Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi drove with three loaded guns in his truck into Mexico where firearms are illegal.

Tahmooressi says he got lost on a California freeway ramp that sent him across the border with no way to turn back. His attorney argues Mexican Customs officials also violated his rights by holding him for some eight hours without notifying the U.S. Consulate or getting a translator.

But arguing those points could mean a long time in jail for the 26-year-old Afghanistan war veteran.

Instead, his lawyer is relying on another argument to win his freedom in the shortest time possible: He needs to be release so he can go home to get treatment for his combat-related post-traumatic stress, which Mexican authorities don't treat, even in their own soldiers.

The Bellevue Flu

Written by Fox News on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  To listen to Hizzoner NYC Mayor DiBlasio and NY Gov. Cuomo talk, one would think there is nothing to worry about where it concerns the threat of Ebola.  However, many of the staff at Bellevue Hospital have suddenly come down with what can only be described as 'Bellevue Flu’ and it is anyone’s guess as to how long this new ‘outbreak’ will last.

New York City's first Ebola patient is prompting frightened staffers tasked with his treatment at the city-run hospital in Manhattan to call in sick, according to a published report.

The New York Post reported Saturday that an "extraordinary number" of Bellevue Hospital staffers took a sick day Friday rather than treat Dr. Craig Spencer. And those who reported for work were petrified at having to enter his isolation ward, the paper added, citing sources.  "The nurses on the floor are miserable with a 'why me?' attitude, scared to death and overworked because all their co-workers called out sick," one source told the Post. "One nurse even went as far as to pretend she was having a stroke to get out of working there, but once they cleared her in the ER they sent her back," the source also told the paper.

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.

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.
