If you are registered to vote are you going to vote November 6,2018?
I was told years ago by a boss of mine if you don’t vote on Tuesday then you have zero right to complain how the country is being run on Wednesday.
He also said you may not always pick the winner but you made a choice.
I have been eligible to vote for 46 years and have missed two primaries as I was not in the area long enough.
If you got a raise, a bonus or a job thanks to President Trump’s tax cuts. You need to vote. If you have lower taxes you need to vote.
If you do not vote don’t come whining to me about your tax increase or losing your job because the DemocRats raised taxes.
I will ask you if you voted and if you say no then I will tell to shut up and quit whining as you are to blame because of the DemocRats winning.
President Trump is supposed to be so racist yet his tax cuts are creating jobs and putting blacks to work at record levels.
And now he creates this monument.
President Trump used his executive powers to designate Camp Nelson as a national monument, establishing a 380-acre site in Kentucky to honor African Americans’ role as soldiers during the Civil War. Camp Nelson is the first national monument designation under President Trump.
Established as a Union supply depot and hospital during the Civil War, Camp Nelson became a recruitment and training center for African American soldiers and a refugee camp for their wives and children. Thousands of slaves risked their lives escaping to this site with the hope of securing their freedom and, ultimately, controlling their futures by aiding in the destruction of slavery.
Complete silence from the talking heads on the alphabet networks. I can already hear what the Left will say… “This only proves how racist President Donald Trump really is… only a racist wanting to cover their racism would build a monument to blacks….” or something like that!
“Camp Nelson, and all the patriots who have ties to it, holds an incredible place in America’s history, and President Trump’s action to designate Camp Nelson as a National Monument will ensure the ongoing protection of the site and the story,” Secretary Zinke said. “America’s parks, battlefields and monuments tell the story of who we are as Americans. Camp Nelson was instrumental as a refuge for escaped and emancipated slaves. The Camp tells the story about Americans who risked absolutely everything they have and everyone they love to fight for their freedom, the cause of liberty and to preserve the Union. I thank the President for using the Antiquities Act as it was truly intended and I can think of no better place for his use of the Act than to recognize African Americans for the sacrifices they made for this country and for the contributions they made for all Americans freedom than by elevating Camp Nelson to National Monument status. I look forward to future generations visiting this site and learning about our nation’s history.”
“We are excited to share this story with our great nation,” said David West, Jessamine County Judge Executive. “The historical, cultural and personal significance of Camp Nelson will inspire and enlighten visitors for generations.”
“It’s an honor to have this place designated a National Monument in honor of those who fought to preserve the Union for the generations to come. These are hollowed grounds here, let it be a park, let it remain a park,” said Jim Frye, retired U.S. Navy Senior Chief and descendant of the U.S. Colored Troops including Smith Lackey (Tevis) and Jefferson Perkins, and African American refugee women.
“Camp Nelson offers exceptional insight into the experiences of our nation’s African-American soldiers during the Civil War,”American Battlefield Trust President James Lighthizer said. “Its landscapes and visitor facilities make vivid the struggles of these soldiers, their wives and children toward a new and uncertain freedom amid America’s deadliest conflict. Preserving the site as part of America’s national park system honors their sacrifices, and will help communicate the camp’s dramatic military and emancipation history to new and larger audiences.”
Camp Nelson build cabins for refugees from slavery, generally the families of the soldiers. Although wives and children of the enlisted men were still not legally free, they were legally entitled to sanctuary. Finally, on March 3, 1865, an Act of Congress officially emancipated the wives, children, and mothers of U.S. Colored Troops. This provided legal protection for the refugees at Camp Nelson and an additional incentive for African American men to enlist in the Union Army.
R.I.P. Master Sergeant Llewellyn Morris Chilson April 1, 1920 – October 2, 1981.
If the actions by Master Sergeant Chilson does not merit getting the Medal Of Honor what does?
Llewellyn Morris “Al” Chilson was born on April Fools’ Day, 1 April 1920, in Dayton, Ohio to a World War I veteran. The Chilson family later moved to South Akron, Ohio.
How hard was Chilson’s childhood? When he was ten, his mother was hit and killed by a vehicle in front of their house. He later said that he mastered his combat skills on the rough streets where he grew up. At 16, he dropped out of school to become a truck driver.
Little did anyone know that that teenage driver would eventually become one of the most decorated U.S. Army soldiers of World War II. He earned twelve individual combat awards, seven of which were decorations for valor. Unbelievably to many including President Harry S. Truman, this rough and tumble real-life “Rambo” was twice denied the Medal of Honor.
On March 17, 1942, Chilson got his draft letter. He was in Camp Livingston, Louisiana when he was nearly put out of commission before he even made it to the front. A heavy wheel fell on his leg, knocked him over, and gave him a severe concussion.
However, he was not discharged, something many Germans would later regret. By July 1943, Chilson was at the invasion of Sicily with the 179th Infantry Regiment, 45th Division, known as the “Thunderbirds.”
On February 15, 1944, Chilson was near Carroceto, Italy when he was wounded in the face by a shell fragment. It did not stop him from firing until he ran out of ammo, after which he was captured.
Five days later, the Allies counter-attacked the German position, allowing Chilson to escape—along with four German captives he took back to the Allied side. With their information, the Allies were able to press their attack and capture forty more Germans.
For Chilson’s wounds at Carrocetto, he was awarded a Purple Heart. For what he did on February 20, he received a Silver Star. However, on July 9 he was court-martialed for two counts of AWOL and his Silver Star was revoked as part of his punishment.
Despite the court-martial, Chilson became a technical sergeant with Company G, 2nd Battalion in Operation Anvil (also called Dragoon) and took part of the Normandy Landings.
On October 28, he was pinned down by Germans on a hill in Lorraine, France. Twenty-five of his friends had been captured after previous attempts to dislodge the enemy. Chilson sneaked around their flank, took out the Germans, and freed his men.
On November 24, the 2nd Battalion went to Denshein near the Vosges Mountains where they encountered a fortified roadblock. When night fell, Chilson crawled to the German outpost and threw two grenades at the sentries.
Seconds later, he gave them a taste of his submachine gun, killing three. That convinced the other nine to surrender, and the Army to reinstate his Silver Star.
Just before dawn on November 29, Chilson’s group was attacked outside the city of Mühlhausen, forcing them to retreat to Engwiller in France. The following day found them back in Germany some two miles southwest of Gumbrechtshoffen.
Chilson’s group ended up on a seemingly indefensible hillside where they were unable to dig foxholes for cover. Chilson successfully held the hill anyway, lying down until approaching Germans were mere yards away and then standing up suddenly to mow them down with his Thompson 45-cal sub-machine gun. That was how reinforcements found him: firing at about 100 Germans crouched several yards away.
Chilson’s superiors recommended him for the Medal of Honor for the first time after this action, but the Awards Board refused to grant it.
In February 1945, Chilson heard about his brother’s death in the Philippines. He went AWOL again, but made up for it on March 26. The Thunderbirds had crossed the Rhine near the town of Gernsheim at 2:30 AM when two platoon commanders were hit. Chilson took command, and got his men across when they came under more flak.
He single-handedly took out an ammunition car and two heavy machine guns, which his battalion then used to take out three enemy flak cars. The Thunderbirds killed 11 Germans and took another 225 captive, earning Chilson a Distinguished Service Cross (DSC).
Just before dawn, they were attacked outside Gernsheim. Unable to pinpoint the enemy, Chilson set fire to a horse-drawn ammunition wagon and sent it rolling toward where he thought the shots were coming from. The burning wagon illuminated the area and proved Chilson right. As the enemy ran, he gunned them down.
Later that day, he attacked more German positions with grenades, killing five and forcing another 41 to surrender.
The Thunderbirds were again attacked outside Horsenthal on March 31. Chilson and two others ran through enemy fire and hopped into a tank. With one man firing and another driving, Chilson stood exposed so he could direct the shots. His conspicuousness made him a perfect target, but he wasn’t hit.
Chilson was recommended for the Medal of Honor for the second time after this series of actions. Again, it was denied.
On April 25 at Meilenholen, Chilson ran ahead of his men, hopped onto a jeep, and drove down the main road. He steered with one hand while firing away with his machine gun in the other. The resulting forty dead Germans, two ruined flak guns, and two damaged 88 mm howitzers earned him his second DSC.
Later that day, the Thunderbirds found another American battalion trying to storm the village of Zell. Chilson found a motorcycle, drove it toward a machine gun nest, and had the bike shot out from under him—but not before he got close enough to take out three German gunners with a grenade.
April 27 found Chilson in Neuberg. The Americans came under fire from the second story window of an apartment building, so Chilson ran toward it through a hail of bullets. He ran upstairs, where his grenade took out two gunners and convinced another eight to surrender.
More flak then began coming from another apartment across the courtyard outside. Chilson chucked a white phosphorous grenade out the window, rushed back down, dashed across the smoke-filled courtyard, and fired at the upstairs window.
Although the Germans could not see Chilson, they managed to shoot him in the arm. He did not even slow down. He killed another two Germans, ran out of ammunition, and chased down and beat a third German unconscious. Chilson then passed out as well and was rescued by his men. With those actions, he earned his third DSC.
At that point, Chilson was out of the war for good. His wounds earned him a second Purple Heart, a hospital stay in England, and a wife from among the nurses at the hospital. He was sent home in June 1945.
On December 6, 1946, President Harry S. Truman pinned seven medals, including the Legion of Merit, on Chilson. Truman then turned to the press and said, “This is the most remarkable list of citations I have ever seen. For any one of these, this young man is entitled to all the country has to offer. These ought to be worth a Medal of Honor—that’s what I think about it.”
The Awards Board disagreed. Regardless, Chilson eventually retired from the Army in 1964 as a master sergeant—and although he may not have earned the Medal of Honor, his legendary status is assured.

In a recently surfaced video, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi reveals just how hypocritical she and the Democrats are when it comes to the rhetoric being blamed for the actions of a crazed terrorist.
The video shows Pelosi, in the wake of the baseball field assassination attempt on GOP lawmakers that nearly ended the life of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), vociferously denying that Democrat demagoguery against the political opposition had anything to do with the shooter’s motivations.
Hateful lies, repeated ad nauseam by the Democrats regarding health care were viewed by some as the motivation behind the shooter’s actions.
In fact, Senator Rand Paul recently revealed that the shooter, a volunteer for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, shouted ‘This is for healthcare!’ as he opened fire on Republican lawmakers.
take our poll – story continues below
Should military force be used to stop the caravan of migrants marching toward the U.S. border?
While the motivations of this week’s serial bombing attempt are unclear thus far, the shooters kill list and healthcare message made it clear – he was a democratic socialist who wanted to take out the political opposition.
Pelosi, at the time, wasn’t having any of it, angrily denying that her words and the words of her colleagues had anything to do with one man’s actions.
“How dare they!” she lashed out when asked if her party’s tone would be seen as a motivating force and hurt them in the future.
“This sick individual does something despicable, and it was horrible what he did, hateful,” she added. “But for them to all of a sudden be sanctimonious as if, they don’t, never seen such a thing before …”
Take a look …
Recall, if you will, that Pelosi was in the midst of hanging out with a California Democrat Party chair who yelled “f*** Donald Trump” to an adoring crowd because the President supposedly wanted to take away everybody’s health care.
“First of all, the timing of it all,” she whined after the shooting. “Everybody is so sad, so concerned, so coming together … Don’t you think it’s strange that instead of praying … that they would start saying – ”
Pelosi then said she’d talk about it some other day. That day has arrived, and she doesn’t quite sound like the same person.
What She’s Saying Now
While Pelosi had a point back then, that words are not responsible for the insane actions of any one person, she has done a complete 180 just a year later.
The Democrat leader is demanding President Trump apologize for previous statements that she believes condone the actions of this week’s serial bomber.
President Trump, by contrast, asked the nation to unify, calling the incidents “abhorrent” and “despicable acts.”
“In these times we have to unify, we have to come together,” he implored.
Pelosi rejected those calls for unity, issuing a joint statement with Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
In joint statement, Senate and House Minority Leaders Schumer and Pelosi say President Trump’s comments today on the wave of pipe bomb packages “ring hollow until he reverses his statements that condone acts of violence.” http://nbcnews.to/2qaK95g
“President Trump’s words ring hollow until he reverses his statements that condone acts of violence,” the two raging hypocrites wrote. “Time and time again, the President has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions…”
It’s striking to see the same person, under the same circumstances, completely reverse course in one year’s time. That is until you realize it’s Nancy Pelosi.
R.I.P. Eileen Mary “Didi” Nearne March 16, 1921-September 2, 2010.
Eileen Mary “Didi” Nearne is a brave woman that deserves to have her story told and she should have a place in history books.
On September 2, 2010, an 89-year-old woman’s body was discovered in a modest apartment in the British town of Torquay, Devon. She appeared to have died several days before. Neighbors claimed she had been a recluse who loved cats.
As the police examined her possessions to ascertain her next of kin, however, they discovered something incredible. As a result, she ended up with a far more elaborate funeral than she probably would have imagined, but it was certainly one she deserved.
Eileen Mary “Didi” Nearne was born on March 16, 1921, in London, England, the youngest of four children. In 1923, the family moved to France.
They were still living there in 1940 when Nazi Germany invaded. Her parents and brothers decided to remain in France while sending Eileen and her sister Jacqueline back to England.
The journey was not easy. The young women had to travel through neutral Spain, then Portugal and Scotland, before finally reaching London in 1942. There they were offered jobs with the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force, but Eileen turned the offer down.
Because she was fluent in French, British intelligence offered her a job with the Special Operations Executive (SOE). Initially, Eileen stayed in Great Britain, working as a signals operator who handled messages from undercover agents abroad.
Eileen did not know that Jacqueline and one of her brothers, Francis, had also been recruited by the SOE. Both were sent to Nazi-occupied France, but Francis was soon returned to Great Britain.
Jacqueline fared better as a SOE agent. For 14 months, she acted as a courier, moving cash, weapons, and ammunition before she too was recalled to Great Britain in April 1944.
In March 1944, Eileen’s time had arrived to go to France and work in the field. On March 2, she was flown to Les Lagnys, Saint-Valentine in Indre, France.
Although SOE’s primary function in Europe was sabotage operations, Eileen was detailed to work as a wireless operator for the Wizard Network.
Wizard was the brainchild of Jean Millet, also known as Jean Savy. He was a commander in the French army who also worked for the SOE. As D-Day approached, he utilized Wizard to create safe houses for Allied troops and to help finance local resistance movements.
The Frenchmen that Eileen met upon arrival thought she was too young for such dangerous work, but she refused to be sent home. She assumed the aliases Mademoiselle du Tort and Jacqueline Duterte, and set to work in Paris. Her code name was simply “Rose” and her main mission was raising money and keeping open a wireless link to London.
In April, Savy’s network discovered that the Germans were preparing to launch a powerful new weapon against Great Britain: V1 rockets. Savy departed for England to relay this crucial piece of intelligence personally, leaving Eileen behind to continue the wireless work.
For five months she transmitted messages, but her work became increasingly difficult. The Germans were getting better at detecting radio transmissions, and agents were getting caught.
To stay ahead, Eileen regularly changed addresses, always moving after sending a message to London. She was nearly caught on a train when a flirtatious German soldier offered to carry her bag—the very one which contained her transmitter.
On July 21, 1944, Eileen had just sent her 105th message when she heard the wail of sirens outside. She quickly burned her notebook and hid her equipment before the Gestapo broke in. The burning papers were incriminating enough, but then they found her radio.
Eileen claimed she was French and simply sending messages for a businessman. She was taken to the Gestapo headquarters, where she was stripped naked and subjected to their notorious water torture. Despite that, she would not divulge any information.
The Nazis then sent Eileen to the Ravensbruck concentration camp in Germany. They shaved her head, and also threatened to shoot her when she refused to do prison work. Over the next few months, they moved her to different labor camps and tortured her, but she never changed her story.
In April 1945, as Allied forces were drawing near the camp, the inmates were forcibly marched out. Eileen and two French women seized the opportunity to escape, and hid in the forest.
Later they were discovered by a German patrol, but were able to convince the Germans that they were local workers and were released. The women then made their way to Leipzig, where a Catholic priest hid them in a church bell tower until American troops liberated the city on April 15.
Eileen’s story sounded so incredible to the Americans that they initially thought she was unbalanced and had made the entire thing up. Fortunately for Eileen, the British confirmed her account, and she was sent home.
For her work, Eileen received the French military decoration Croix de Guerre. Also, King George VI made her a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE).
She never recovered psychologically from her torture at the hands of the Gestapo. After the war, she lived with her sister in London. She moved to the seaside town of Torquay after Jacqueline died in 1982.
In 1997, she took part in a TV interview about her role in WWII, but spoke in French, wore a wig, and insisted on being called “Rose.”
Her funeral was paid for by Torbay Funeral Services and was complete with a piper, members of the police and military, and media coverage. It was a late but well-deserved tribute for a woman who had done so much for her country.
More evidence of the voter fraud President Trump and others have spoken about.
“The U.S. Census Bureau reports that 28.2 percent of Hispanic voters in the 2008 election were immigrants,” according to Steven Camarota of Center for Immigration Studies.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Friday officially reported that four suspects were indicted on numerous felony counts of voter fraud. The suspects were arrested during the ongoing investigation by the Election Fraud Unit of Paxton’s office. However, Democrats are not celebrating such arrests calling the case an example of overzealous police work.
Paxton has been charging a record number of people with committing voter fraud, an effort his critics condemn as a law enforcement campaign to discourage minority voters from casting ballots. “The truth is that the attorney general’s office is only trying to discourage non-citizens from voting,” said former prosecuting attorney Charles Simpson.
These four latest defendants – all members of an organized voter fraud ring – were paid to target elderly voters in certain Fort Worth precincts in a scheme to generate a large number of mail ballots, and then harvest those ballots for specific candidates during the 2016 elections.
“Ballots by mail are intended to make it easier for Texas seniors to vote. The unfortunate downside is their extreme vulnerability to fraud,” Attorney General Paxton said in a statement. “My office is committed to ensuring that paid vote harvesters who fraudulently generate mail ballots, stealing votes from seniors, are held accountable for their despicable actions and for the damage they inflict on the electoral process,” said Paxton, a long-time Republican.
The state’s newly filed notice of intent to introduce evidence in the criminal case alleged that Stuart Clegg, then Tarrant County Democratic Party executive director, funded the alleged voter fraud ring’s criminal activities.
The Star-Telegram added that “after learning about a state investigation, Leticia Sanchez — one of four women arrested and indicted on voter fraud charges — allegedly directed her daughter to send a text message to others in the scheme, urging them not to cooperate with investigators, state officials say.”
According to the Texas Attorney General’s communications officials, Leticia Sanchez was indicted on one count of illegal voting, a second-degree felony punishable by a prison term of two to 20 years, if convicted. All defendants in the case face state jail felony charges of providing false information on an application for a mail ballot – Sanchez (16 counts), Leticia Sanchez Tepichin (10 counts), Maria Solis (two counts) and Laura Parra (one count).
During a press briefing, the Attorney General described how the suspects operated: Vote harvesting is accomplished generally in two phases: seeding and harvesting. In the seeding phase, applications for mail ballot are proliferated in order to blanket targeted precincts with mail ballots. Then, when ballots are mailed out by the election offices, harvesters attempt either to intercept the ballots outright, or to “assist” elderly voters in voting their ballots while ensuring that the votes are cast for the candidates of the harvesters’ choice. In most cases, the voters do not even know their votes have been stolen.
The investigation into the Fort Worth voter fraud ring by the attorney general’s prosecutors and detectives revealed that falsified applications were generated using forged signatures and by altering historical applications and resubmitting them without the knowledge of the genuine voters.
The ‘harvesters’ also used deceptive tactics in order to obtain signatures from unsuspecting voters. Many of the victimized voters were forced to cancel their mail-in ballots in order to be eligible to vote in person. Some of the unsuspecting victims were forced into receiving primary ballots for the political party supported by the harvesters, though it was not the Democratic Party candidates the voters wished to vote for.
From 2005-2017, the attorney general’s office prosecuted 97 defendants for numerous voter fraud violations. This year alone, Attorney General Paxton’s Election Fraud Unit – with assistance from a criminal justice grant from the governor’s office – has prosecuted 33 defendants for a total of 97 election fraud violations, according to a news release.
In February 2018, the attorney general revealed his plan for a significant voter fraud initiative and he addressed key problems and policy areas related
