President Donald Trump once requested that the United States host a military parade to pay tribute to the hard-working soldiers and staff who defend the great country of America. Trump’s request is very close to being put in place as the details are worked out, and the plans are underway. The Pentagon recently announced the military parade and it was noting something that would be missing.
While many people criticize President Trump’s decision and need for a military parade, there are millions of others who think it’s a wonderful idea and a great way to honor and pay tribute to the brave men and women who enlist in the military to protect our country and freedom. President Trump may have wanted an all-out parade to showcase what great powers our military has, but he’s going to be asked to settle for something a bit less than desired. The Pentagon announcement has stated that there will be many items on display, but that the parade will not include tanks. The military parade will not involve tanks because the military does not want to cause damage to the infrastructure of the location in which the parade is being held. For example, some tanks are so massive that just rolling over the sidewalk curb, or parts of the outdoor area could ultimately damage them. Then the location would be forced to repair the damaged area, which will cost taxpayers additional money.
The Pentagon is ready to go on with a parade, but President Trump will have to settle for vehicles on wheels and maybe a few aircraft. This information comes from a memo that was obtained by NBC News, who provides more coverage on the announcement: “The event will include “no tanks,” but it will play host to “a heavy air component at the end of the parade, to include older aircraft as available,” the memo states. The route will be from the White House to the U.S. Capitol Building.
As previously reported, the parade is to take place in November — on Veterans Day to be specific — and it “will focus on the contributions of our Veterans throughout the history of the U.S. Military, starting from the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 to today, with an emphasis on the price of freedom,” according to the memo.
The parade “will integrate with the annual D.C. Veteran’s Day Parade,” and will also “highlight the evolution of women Veterans formations in World War II to today’s integrated formations,” the memo states.
The cost of the parade, however, remains unclear.
Critics have largely panned the idea since Trump proposed it earlier this year, worrying that it would be a display of authoritarianism, carry a hefty price tag — tens of millions of dollars by some estimates — and damage the roads in Washington D.C.
The memo says only aircraft and “wheeled vehicles” will be used — no tanks — to “minimize damage to local infrastructure.”
Many criticize the parade and state that it will cost taxpayers money. However, events like this often generate money with people coming in, stores and restaurants being filled with customers, and it generally all works out very well when the event is over. For every penny spent on the parade, there will be plenty of money spent by consumers who purchase items, and it will also be a great time to bring people together in a patriotic event and tribute to our American military units.
Many Americans would gladly visit the Military parade and make it into a fun-filled day for family and friends. Parades in America are a fun event that many people attend to spend the morning or afternoon with family and friends. It’s just a fun day watching things go by. Kids love them and cheer for things that go by. A military parade will be very cool as onlookers get to see things that were used, or could have been used, in real military action. All of this while being patriotic, loving your country, and paying tribute to the men and women who serve, and have served, in this great American military.
There will probably be a few protesters because President Trump can’t seem to please everyone, but local law enforcement will likely handle them, or they might even get pushed away by those in attendance. People who still protest President Trump have not been following the timeline of his presidency, nor have noticed the positive changes done by his administration. The #Resist movement consists of people who are part of the problem instead of being part of the solution that works in a bipartisan manner to serve America in the best way possible. The #Resist movement whines when they could be discussing relevant topics with people on the other side of politics.
Working together for change is always better than working against the other half of the country.
Let’s hope that a fun day at the parade is another way to unite people instead of pitting them against each other.

BREAKING: He Just Chased Him Down And TACKLED Him On CAPITOL HILL!
For eight years, Democrats have gotten away with an incredible amount of debauchery, feeling as is they were above the law since Barack Obama allowed it. It’s the end of that era with President Donald Trump in charge, who has come in and cleaned house and shaped the place up. However, every now and then a rat sneaks in and tries wreak havoc on our administration. This is part of what just happened but was made worse by what this particularly rotten Democrat did to one of Trump’s female officials.
Capitol Police urgently arrested him on the spot and hauled him away from the White House in handcuffs. Not only was the public arrest humiliating, but so was what he did to earn it. It’s safe to say he probably won’t be showing his face around the White House anytime soon, if ever again, considering that even if he tries, there’s no way Trump will allow it.
It’s no easy task to get through all the red tape and security clearance required to work within such close proximity to the president, especially one who is the most controversial Commanders-in-Chief our country has ever had. He walks around every second of every day with a target on his back from lunatic leftists, which leaves one to wonder how this physically violent Democrat operative was ever allowed on the property in the first place.
The Interior Department appeared before the House Committee on Natural Resources to discuss the department’s 2019 budget this week. A female Trump administration official was present for the budget hearing, whose name was not released, as well as another unnamed individual who had only identified himself as a reporter for American Bridge. While many assumed the reporter was there to collect information regarding the meeting to report on later, it turned out that he had a much more sinister and dangerous motive in mind.
As soon as Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had finished his testimony on the budget before the committee, the American Bridge reporter charged toward him to attack, violently pushing the female Trump official out of the way and down to the ground to get to Zinke, according to what the Daily Caller learned of the details of what happened.
The physical assault victim is on the communications team for the department who was apparently in the deranged Democrat staffer’s way of doing what he was really there to do. The communications director for the department was also shaken by the terrifying burst of sudden rage, telling Politico that she was “greatly alarmed and extremely irate that a female senior member of my DOI Communications team was physically assaulted today by a Democrat staffer from the PAC American Bridge.”
What makes this assault more salacious is that American Bridge is a George Soros-funded outlet, founded by the billionaire globalist’s good friend and apparent business partner, David Brock.The Center for Responsive Politics reports that Soros dumped $2 million into this PAC to keep it operating back in 2016 and clearly has a vested interest in it to push his agenda. Afterall, American Bridge’s mission is to hold Republicans accountable, according to the group’s tagline. Now, the out of control, violent, unnamed reporter is being held accountable for his action.s
Capitol Police took the deranged Democrat operative into custody on Thursday and transported him to the Capitol Police department’s headquarters where he was held for processing, according to Politico’s report on the incident. Having proven himself as a violent threat, he shouldn’t be allowed in any major government buildings on Capitol Hill. This attack is proof that unhinged leftists are completely incapable of civilly discussing differences without resorting to desperate violent measures. If “holding Republicans accountable” means that they can and will do so by any means necessary, then any person belonging to the American Bridge PAC should be banned from involvement in civil discourse.
This is now the third Democrat that Capitol Police have had to arrest in the last couple months. On two other unrelated occasions, Democrat lawmakers were arrested outside the capitol for their individual immigration protests getting out of control and inciting violence. There is a trend among the left and it’s that they are unhinged, desperate for control, and dangerous.
BREAKING: BIG Dem Just Found Dead In Washington, D.C. – NOBODY Saw It Coming
When many politicians got involved in a career on Capitol Hill they probably didn’t think that it was a job that should come with hazard pay. The political game is more vicious than ever from the left now that we have a non-career politician as a president who has been draining the swamp since day one in office. President Donald Trump makes no apologies for exposing the corruption in Washington, D.C. and making America better for it. However, that’s causing the entire establishment to panic, which often has devolved into desperate measures which there’s been no shortage of in the past 14 months.
There have been a lot of sudden and strange deaths reported among people involved in politics recently. While some have mysteriously slipped out of the mainstream news media coverage, others have not. The long fight on Capitol Hill that high ranking Congresswoman Louise Slaughter was most known for has now come to an end with her sudden death. What led to her passing is rather ironic considering what else happened the very same day she died.
Regardless of political affiliation or opinion, it’s tragic when anyone passes away and that’s no different for Slaughter, even though she had a progressive mission as a Congresswoman. This news is especially devastating for Democrats and certain notable liberals who relied on her to help execute their agenda, which she fought long and hard for during her career. Slaughter fell short of her goal which had already been compromised under President Trump who didn’t support what she stood for.
The Democrat & Chronicle reported on her shocking passing: On Capitol Hill, she was known as an energetic leader of the Democratic Party and a passionate champion for progressive issues. In Rochester, most of her constituents knew her simply as Louise.
Rep. Louise Slaughter, a Democrat who represented the Rochester area in Congress since 1987, died Friday morning in a Washington, D.C., hospital. She was 88.
The report also noted that Slaughter had suffered a fall in her Washington residence last week, causing injuries which ultimately led to her death just a few days later. The Congresswoman died the same day that Hillary Clinton had a second fall within a week while in India that required a hospital stay. While Hillary just fractured her wrist in her second fall in which she tumbled into the bathtub in her hotel room, Slaughter tragically couldn’t recover from her injuries. Perhaps this is the same path that Hillary is on which could be the cause of her ultimate demise.
What’s important to note is that Slaughter was admired by people on both sides of the aisle for her ability to be respectful to her opponents despite their difference in opinions. This is what’s missing from most younger liberal politicians who resort to name calling and even violence to get their way or their point across. Slaughter was an example that politics doesn’t have to ruin a person.
Speaking favorably of his opponent in her passing for the incredibly respectable representative she was, Republican Mark Assini, a Gates Town Supervisor who had challenged Slaughter in two elections, said her Southern drawl was disarming.
“People were surprised at the genuine affection we had for one another and the respect and the politeness,” Assini said. “Losing to her was no shame. She was beloved. She was beloved for a reason. It wasn’t because she was a good politician. She was a good person. … She cared about people and she was pretty candid about things.”
As a Kentucky native, it was Slaughter’s sweet southern accent that she was most known for, having never lost it even years after moving from her home state. She reportedly used it to charm constituents and colleagues alike with a folksy manner, rather than a negative approach of attack that we see so often now from other Democrats on Capitol Hill.
Democrat & Chronicle continued: Flags at the U.S. Capitol building were lowered to half-staff Friday morning, and condolences poured in from nearly every major American political figure.
“Louise was a giant in the people’s House,” said Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI). “She was unrelenting in fighting for her ideas and the people back home in Western New York. But really the thing that I keep coming back to is that she was tough but unfailingly gracious.”
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-NY, called her “a giant.”
“She had deep convictions — on both issues important to the people of Rochester, and for the integrity and honesty of the political system,” Schumer said. “The ferocity of her advocacy was matched only by the depth of her compassion and humanity. Her passing will leave a gaping hole in our hearts and our nation.”
Despite her progressive political mission on Capitol Hill, her approach to fighting for what was important to her is something that all liberals in Congress can and should learn from. She will certainly be missed as will her southern drawl that captivated the hearts of all in Congress.
Trump Bulldozing US Gov’t Officials Who Admitted To Poisoning Our Military As THOUSANDS Are Dying
Water is essential to life and as Americans, we expect that what we’re drinking is safe. While that’s the case everywhere around the country, it was not true for our Marine heroes and their families living on base in North Carolina while serving our country. For years, the victims had no clue that the water they were consuming and using on a daily basis was killing them, and now it’s too late. The government has admitted their part in poisoning thousands of America’s finest and their families for years, many of whom have died before justice could be served.
The devastation of those affected is far sweeping and extends beyond having been poisoned. Many rely on the Veterans Affairs for treatment for this horrible illness and aren’t getting it. Approximately 900,000 Marine Corps veterans have been poisoned by contaminated water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. These victims’ only hope is in President Donald Trump to be the first president to do something about it and a VA whistleblower is now being the one to pursue the president in getting the deathly ill veterans the help they deserve.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports of what these victims were contaminated with for years while the issue in the water was ignored:
The North Carolina base’s drinking water contained toxic chemicals from the 1950s to the 1980s. Hundreds of thousands of people — Marines and their family members — were exposed to the water. The Lejeune Community Assistance Panel, administered out of the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention offices, was created 13 years ago to share information and give those poisoned, many who are sick, a forum to be heard.
An AJC article on Sunday highlighted complaints about recent efforts designed to help those suffering. Veterans and their families say programs administered through the Department of Veterans Affairs are failing to properly notify those affected and leaving family members behind.
Just as the contaminated water issue went unaddressed for decades, so have victims’ access to healthcare and disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Those who served at Camp Lejeune from 1953 to 1987 who had been poisoned, have already died waiting for a response and care. However, a suspected 500,000 more affected veterans are still living but believed to have a much higher mortality rate than the general population. Playing a critical part in the death rate is the lack of care they are getting and responds to requests for help and answers from the defunct VA system which has been mismanaged, overwhelmed, and understaffed for years.
According to the Washington Examiner:
The majority of deceased or living Camp Lejeune veterans and their family members have not received any compensation for the health effects from being exposed to contaminants at Camp Lejeune or for the loss of their children who were miscarried as a result of the toxic water on the base.
Less than 20 percent of family member insurance claims have been approved by VA. The agency has only approved 463 of the 2,519 family member claims filed between 2014 and 2017.
VA’s decision not to compensate Camp Lejeune Veterans for all of the 15 known health effects related to Camp Lejeune is in direct opposition to the findings stated in departmental guidance.
Currently, veterans who suffer from critical illnesses like neurobehavioral effects, miscarriages and infertility, and renal toxicity receive no presumptive disability compensation. There is no reason that Camp Lejeune veterans do not receive the same type of disability compensation as veterans exposed to Agent Orange.
It’s sad and unacceptable that prisoners in our country get better medical care while serving their sentence than our heroes who defended and served our nation. They are being forgotten and ignored after suffering horrific poisoning they should have never been subjected to on an American military base of all places.
Washington Examiner reported the whistleblowers call to action:
“I strongly encourage the Trump administration to move forward with administrative and legislative reforms to improve veteran access to healthcare and disability benefits. The White House should resist bending to the will of disloyal false prophets who seek to undermine the presidency by exploiting veterans concerns about privatization as means of maintaining job security.”
“The president would find that the veteran community (21+ million strong) will support his administration, if the White House engages them directly and conveys a clear cohesive message about its long-term goals for preserving the VA while expanding access to care for veterans who can’t be serviced by a VA medical facility in a timely manner.”
Something can and should be done about this to save or at least extend the lives of hundreds of thousands affected veterans who need someone to rely on.
