The American's Creed

Our Flagpole

Happy Independence Day!

I attended a Tea Party picnic and meeting on Tuesday evening.  The speaker read something called The American's Creed.  I decided it would make the perfect Independence Day post.

I think there are some folks in Washington, DC who need to read this and take it to heart.

The American's Creed

by William Tyler Page
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.
–Written 1917, accepted by the United States House of Representatives on April 3, 1918.

Remember to keep America in your prayers every day.

America (My Country, 'Tis of Thee)

 My country,' tis of thee, 
 sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing; 
 land where my fathers died, 
 land of the pilgrims' pride, 
 from every mountainside let freedom ring! 

 My native country, thee, 
 land of the noble free, thy name I love; 
 I love thy rocks and rills, 
 thy woods and templed hills; 
 my heart with rapture thrills, like that above. 

 Let music swell the breeze, 
 and ring from all the trees sweet freedom's song; 
 let mortal tongues awake; 
 let all that breathe partake; 
 let rocks their silence break, the sound prolong. 

 Our fathers' God, to thee, 
 author of liberty, to thee we sing; 
 long may our land be bright 
 with freedom's holy light; 
 protect us by thy might, great God, our King.

UPDATE 6/2 - Questions Arise About Sgt. Bergdahl Release; Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is Free

Good news for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who I have previously posted about in this blog.  After 5 years, the United States has obtained his release from the Taliban in Afghanistan.  We released 5 GITMO prisoners to obtain his freedom.

(Note Update:  I corrected his rank from Pfc to Sgt.  The previous articles listed him as Pfc.)

WASHINGTON — Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has been released after nearly five years of Taliban captivity, President Obama announced today.
“On behalf of the American people, I was honored to call his parents to express our joy that they can expect his safe return, mindful of their courage and sacrifice throughout this ordeal,” Obama said in a written statement released this afternoon.
Bergdahl was discovered missing from his unit in Afghanistan in June 2009. He was declared to have been captured by the Taliban soon after.
His freedom was secured in exchange for the release of five prisoners from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, according to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, who said on Saturday that Bergdahl is now under the care of the U.S. military.

UPDATE 6/2/14:

Since the release of Sgt. Bergdahl, stories are being released bringing into doubt his allegiance to America. There are more questions as to whether or not Mr. Obama had the right to release 5 dangerous GITMO detainees for Sgt. Beregdahl's release without notifying Congress.  I've linked to all the stories from The Drudge Report that I could find.

This is very disturbing. 

Bergdahl: 'I am ashamed to be an American'...

'The title of US soldier is just the lie of fools'

'The horror that is America is disgusting'...

Resentment lingers among POW's peers...

CHARGE: Soldiers died searching for 'deserter'...

RICE: Bergdahl Served With 'Honor and Distinction'...


Five of Most Dangerous Taliban Commanders in U.S. Custody Exchanged for American Captive...

Terror suspects were labeled 'high risk'... 

Deal Could Be First Step to Emptying Gitmo... 

Taliban Hails 'Great Victory'...

Soldier allegedly abandoned his post after growing disillusioned with war...

ZERO FOOTPRINT - Benghazi Operation Yet to be Reported in the MSM, including FNC

If you are not a subscriber to The Blaze TV, you may not have seen the entire April 30, 2014 episode of For the Record, a show hosted by Laurie Dhue.  The report exposes more information than we've been seeing in the MSM or even Fox News Network (FNC).  For example, Zero Footprint (you'll see what I'm talking about soon).

I've tried to gathered as many links as possible to share with you..  Then, just before publishing my blog post, an enterprising gentleman posted the entire episode on YouTube (approx 29 mins).  I've added the entire video to this post, but kept the clips up in case the video becomes unavailable for one reason or another.

For the Record has done an extensive investigation into Benghazi and the operation called, Zero Footprint.  What's Zero Footprint?  Good question.  It has to do with covering up any proof that the Obama Administration was providing support to the terrorists freedom fighters in Libya.  I haven't even heard  Zero Footprint mentioned anywhere else, including on FNC.  For The Record interviewed people directly involved in the operation and who know first hand about what went on in Benghazi.

This information is definitely something that has to be added to the information being released about Benghazi.  Hopefully, the rest of the media (or at least FNC) will pick up on what For The Record has exposed and include it in their reporting.

We can pass this information along, too, as I'm sure many of our friends and family won't hear about it otherwise.
The truth about Benghazi is coming out
The news today has been dominated by new revelations surrounding the attack on Benghazi. For the past week, TheBlaze has published a series of investigative stories detailing how exactly weapons supplied for Libyan rebels, with tacit support from the US government, ended up in the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Qaeda. Then today, e-mails revealed an effort by the White House to link the attacks on the consulate in Benghazi to the Youtube video and not to a broader failure of the Obama administration’s foreign policy. In his morning, Glenn discussed the latest news on Benghazi, as well as TheBlaze’s investigation as part of For The Record: Zero Footprint.

The entire Zero Footprint episode is below.  I've noticed that sometimes the video starts 11 minutes in.  If that happens, you can drag the video curser (if that's what it's called) back to the beginning to start over.  I have no idea why this happens.

In case you can't watch the entire video, or it gets deleted for some reason, you can go to the bottom of the post to see the clips I was able to scrounge up.
