Soldier Spots ‘Lone Man’ At Arlington Cemetery On Veteran’s Day, Who It Was Will Give You Goosebumps

Army veteran David Brown visited his fallen military friends at Arlington National Cemetery.

Brown noticed one man standing alone and decided to talk to him.

He was surprised to see who that lonely gentleman was.

Brown described his friend as “one of whom hardened me into a soldier,” and he explained that the second one “helped soften me into a leader.” When Brown started walking towards the man, he noticed something familiar.

It was U.S. Marine Corps General James Mattis, who is currently serving as the Secretary of Defense for our president, Donald Trump. Even Brown was quite surprised by his visit, he understood that he has many reasons to be there.

On his Facebook profile, Brown wrote: “This morning, I visited a quiet, out-of-the-way plot of Arlington National Cemetery known as Section 60. Being Veterans Day, the Cemetery was packed with tourists and volunteers, school children and general well-wishers. The crowds at Arlington’s main gate jostled shoulder-to-shoulder to see the Tomb of the Unknowns, or visit Kennedy’s Eternal Flame. Some had arms full of flags to plant, row by row, stone by stone.”

Regarding his encounter with James Mattis, he wrote: “While visiting their graves, I met a lone man walking the stones at Section 60. Far away from cameras and fanfare, Defense Secretary James Mattis spent his Veterans Day with the recent fallen. I watched him listen patiently to stories from surviving friends and family members. An old man visiting his Marine son’s grave told Mattis that he was his boy’s hero; the Warrior Monk smiled sadly and said that the old man’s son was one of his.”

Apparently, Brown admires James thinking of him as a “living legend” who “transcends politics and ideology.”

After his contact with the secretary of defense, IJR conducted an interview with him and he explained that mostly he listened instead of giving speeches. Also, the general spoke with everybody “like an old friend.”

Brown stated: “He was just as comfortable talking to an Army major in dress blues as he was a service member’s child, and the ability to transition seamlessly from one particular type of loss to another is something I’ve never seen in anyone else, military or otherwise.”

Furthermore, he explained: “I think it’s important that the boots on the ground feel like there’s someone at the top who has their backs. I’ve always heard that a leader can serve the people above him or the people below him, but rarely can he do both at once. I think every individual service member knows that General Mattis is looking out for them first.”

It isn’t a surprise that Brown admired James Mattis, his leadership is strong and effective. President Donald Trump made a good decision when he chose Mattis to serve as his Secretary of Defense.

Breaking: Kim Jong Un Surrenders, Sends Letter to White House, Trump Wins North Korea

On Thursday, President Donald Trump teased a big announcement related to North Korea.

He said that South Korea will be making a “major statement” about North Korea.

This is major.

The North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has invited President Donald Trump to meet and he agreed. South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-Yong, who led a delegation to Pyongyang for talks with senior North Korean leadership, briefed the White House on the recent meeting in North Korea’s capital.

According to our source, America News Central, Chung said that North Korea is committed to denuclearization and stressed that Kim expressed “his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible.” The South Korean envoy revealed that “President Trump appreciated the greeting and said he would meet Kim Jong un by May to achieve permanent denuclearization.”

This announcement represents a significant development given that last summer, President Donald Trump was threatening North Korea with “fire and fury,” and a total destruction while Kim was warning that he would tame the president with fire.

 

It is unclear why North Korea is deciding to pursue dialogue now, but there is evidence that North Korea is struggling under the weight of the president’s maximum pressure strategy. There are serious concerns about the “military option.” As Kim Jong un aspires to survive Donald Trump’s presidency, these factors may be affect him in making a decision.

At the same time, Kim Jong un has repeatedly heralded North Korea’s emergence as a nuclear power, so it is unclear whether Kim is approaching his landmark meeting for a position of confidence or desperation. South Korea credits President Donald Trump for his remarkable moment, as Chung explained that the president’s “leadership and his maximum pressure policy together with international solidarity brought us to this juncture.”

9th Circuit Court Stabs POTUS in the Back, Rules Children Can Sue Trump for Most Idiotic Reason Ever

Lawyers have a joke about the craziest courts in the country, for nuttiest decisions.

One of the courts that lands high on the list is the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

And they just managed to outdo themselves.

A federal appeals court ruled on Wednesday in favor of 21 children and young adults suing the U.S. government for not doing enough to protect their constitutional right to a stable climate. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals judges refused to grant mandamus relief and block the U.S. District Court in Oregon from hearing the suit, which was filed by the environmental group Our Children’s Trust in 2015.

According to our source, America News Central, President Donald Trump’s Administration and oil and gas groups appealed the decision in June 2017. They asked the judges to “end this clearly improper attempt to have the judiciary decide important questions of energy and environmental policy,” and upset the balance of powers. The Ninth Circuit disagreed with it.

Julia Olson, Our Children’s Trust  chief counsel, said that the ruling gives a “green light for trial.” Julia’s case on behalf of the young people argues constitutional rights to life, liberty and property are being violated by the federal government’s failure to enact policies to stop the global warming.

Applying the public trust doctrine to global warming was a way to “circumvent unfavorable political outcomes with legal actions, which runs afoul of non-justiciability limitations,” a 2014 Dartmouth Law Review article by Andrew Ballentine argued.

The Ninth acknowledges that the claims are overboard and recognize “some of the remedies the plaintiffs seek may not be available as redress.” Just like the kids from Parkland, Florida, it is not really just kids behind this. The adults supporting this push, using kids as a front, are the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.

THIS Sanctuary City Just Got A HUGE $178 MILLION Surprise Straight From The President — BOOM!

Sanctuary cities will be gone soon.

And all the Liberal mayors who have defied the United States law for the past eight years are going to be very sorry.

This is huge.

While some mayors have seen the light and come over to President Donald Trump‘s side, some of them resisted. Maybe because they can’t imagine that there will be real consequences. Austin, the most Liberal city in Texas, a state that is otherwise completely Red, its sheriff has defied both federal law and the governor for some time.

According to our source, My Right America, Travis County Sheriff  “Sanctuary Sally” Hernandez has fallen out of the graces of Governor Abbott, who has stated that if she continues to defy the rule of law, he will cut off millions of dollars to the county. Texas Governor Greg Abbott made abolishing sanctuary jurisdictions in Texas an emergency item for this year’s legislative session and a bill is speeding through, that would enforce the move.

Sheriff Hernandez is about to create a catastrophe for Austin. They could use $125 million in state and federal grants. “Travis County currently receives $125 million in state and federal grants that flow through the Office of the Governor,” Governor Abbott’s spokesman John Wittman said on Tuesday. “The governor’s office is currently evaluating how much of that $125 million could be taken away under SB4.”

The S.B.4 legislation, contains provisions to cut funding from any “local entity,” refusing to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

“A local entity may not receive state grant funds if the entity adopts, enforces, or endorses a policy under which the entity prohibits or discourages the enforcement of immigration laws or, by consistent actions, prohibits or discourages the enforcement of immigration laws.”

BREAKING: 12 Hrs After Trump Pardoned Him, Freed Sailor Makes Shocking Admission – WATCH!

In 2009, U.S Sailor Kristian Saucier’s life took a turn for the worse after he took nine photos of the inside of the USS Alexandria.

He was arrested and convicted of being in possession of  “unauthorized retention of national defense information,” which is a felony in 2016.

But, President Donald Trump pardoned him and ended the nightmare that plagued him for so long.

President Donald Trump is keeping his promises to not only make America great again, but to right the many wrongs that occurred under the presidency of Barack Obama and his Administration. Among the mistakes was the arrest of U.S. Sailor Kristian Saucier, for taking photos of the inside of the USS Alexandria.

According to our source, Daily Vine, at the time of the arrest, Saucier was enjoying a stellar career in the Navy and was looking forward to serve for more years. Now he is free, and he is speaking out about the circumstances surrounding his prosecution and the double standard to which he was held to.

“The president has pardoned Kristian Saucier, a Navy submariner. Mr. Saucier was 22 years old at the time of his offenses and has served out his 12-month sentence. He has been recognized by his fellow service-members for his dedication, skill and patriotic spirit. The president is appreciative of Mr. Saucier’s service to the country,” Sarah Sanders said at a press conference.

“That was the press secretary yesterday,” Fox News reporter Pete Hegseth said. “Well, former Navy machinist joins us now for an exclusive interview. Sir, thank you very much for joining. What it must have felt like today… to wake up as a free man. You were a felon yesterday. Today you’re free. How are you feeling?” he asked.

“Pretty good,” Saucier said. “We’re very grateful to the president for following through with his promise to help our family out. He is an amazing man, and this is just one of the many great things that he’s done in his term. You know, I got to speak with him briefly yesterday and what an amazing guy. Just to be able to take time out of his busy schedule to speak with me and to turn my family’s life around and give us our lives back.”

“This case could have been handled at a much lower level within the military, as it should have been because I was active duty at the time and I would have taken my punishment the same way — like a man. I made a mistake when I was a young kid, it was a misguided attempt to have some mementos, and it should have never reached the level like it did. And I believe President Trump saw that and he spoke about my case.”

“It was a clear attempt by the Department of Justice… under Obama to use me as a scapegoat to take the heat off Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information,” Saucier added.

Home Depot Founder Risks Entire Company With Shock Announcement – Trump’s DOING IT Anyway!

Major retailers around the nation have become battlegrounds for political correctness.

They used their businesses to make social statements.

It is not very wise to polarize your customer base with a divisive stance.

Home Depot’s competition, Lowe’s, has proven to stay true to their values and the American citizens, especially our nation’s heroes and their families. Their counterpart has received some pretty bad press over the past three years, regarding an apparent disrespect for the military. Most of this seemed to occur at the store level and not a decision condoned or approved by the corporation especially since the CEO of the home improvement is a major President Donald Trump supporter, which is a fact that the founder has not been shy about.

According to our source, Daily Vine, the Home Depot Foundation, a leadership arm for the company founded by Bernie Marcus, Arthur Blank and with the help of Ken Langone, hammered down on its pledge to closing the gap among skilled laborers in America. It announce that it would commit $50 million to train 20.000 tradespeople over the next ten years, starting with separating military and veterans, in a n effort to reduce the number of unfilled construction sector jobs in the United States.

“We want to bring shop class back, from coast-to-coast,” Shannon Gerber, executive director of The Home Depot Foundation, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to train 20,000 next-generation plumbers, electricians, carpenters and beyond. It’s a true honor to welcome our first classes of separating soldiers as they transition to civilian life and into successful careers in the trades.”

Our country needs to see more of this and it will, within the next four years under President Donald Trump’s leadership. He praises our military all the time and that is how it should be.
