The Drumpf family, including sons Eric and Don, have always traveled all over the world on business. Now that they run the Drumpf business interests and must have Secret Service protection, it costs money to protect them.
Melania and son Barron stay most of the time in the family’s New York City apartment while the ten-year-old finishes up school. It costs money to protect them there. The family travels to their place in Palm Beach, Florida, and Drumpf’s talking about retreats at his New Jersey Drumpf golf course.
That’s the way they’ve always lived their lives.
Protecting the president isn’t easy or cheap, and according to estimates from The Washington Post, the cost to protect Drumpf and his family is on track to supersede the cost to protect former president and his family by hundreds of millions of dollars.
Joe Biden Defends Veterans After Donald Trump’s PTSD Remarks
Vice President Joe Biden defended veterans during an impassioned speech Monday, October 3, after Donald Trump’s comments about soldiers who suffer from PTSD.
The Republican presidential nominee was addressing PTSD and suicides among those returning home from war before a veterans group in Virginia when he said those in the room were “strong” and could “handle” the horrors of war.
However, “a lot of people can’t handle it,” Trump added.
Many took his phrasing to mean soldiers who can’t handle PTSD are weak.
Biden, who said he has been “in and out” of Afghanistan and Iraq more than 29 times, said Trump was not intentionally trying to offend but that the real estate mogul “doesn’t get it,” according to The Hill.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is working diligently to take care of homeless veterans, but the scope of the problem is so vast that no one agency can do it alone. Eradicating homelessness among veterans requires partnerships between a myriad of government and private entities. Think of it like the American Cancer Society or the American Lung Association. While the government funds a considerable amount of medical research, those organizations have existed for years because of the general public’s desire to see even more done in the fight against killer diseases.
In our case, the fight is against homelessness and the despair, PTSD, substance abuse and other factors that contribute to homelessness. If you agree that veterans facing these life-threatening challenges, many the result of serving in combat, deserve more help than the government can provide, we ask you to contribute.
New Report Reveals Nation Still Not Fully Equipped to Support Women Veterans
While the federal government has raced to establish programs to serve combat veterans, the current system that awaits women transitioning from military service is a disjointed patchwork of programs marked by serious gaps in health care, housing, other community support services, employment and efforts to eradicate sexual assault, according to a landmark report released today by Disabled American Veterans.
A veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, service and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following the events of September 11, 2001. It operates as a nonprofit 501(C)(3) organization with a mission to “honor and empower Wounded Warriors” of the c, as well as provide services and programs for the family members of its registered “alumni,” as its registered veterans are called.
I’m dusting off an old post that I prepared more than one year ago. I find it relevant today in light of the reported events which occurred in the one year celebration of Michael Brown’s shooting death in #Ferguson.
It’s been reported that the group was seen there during the memorial.
Their presence lead to chaos, intimidation, trouble and “persecution” of those who were present trying to remember these sad events one year prior.
I find them to be intimidating and overbearing.
I strongly believe in the 1st amendment and the right to bear arms for those who feel that need.
Yet, I’m not for an armed militia who has military training and god knows what’s in their (maybe twisted) minds.
I WENT TO A LOCAL ESTABLISHMENT TODAY AND FOUND THIS BROCHURE IN THEIR LOBBY.
THIS IS COPIED WORD BY WORD.
Needless to say, I haven’t returned to said establishment.
Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers and Fire Fighters. Members will fulfill the oath we swore, with the support of like-minded citizens who take an oath to stand with us, to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God.
Our oath is to the Constitution, not to the politicians and not to any political party. In the long-standing tradition of the US military, we are apolitical. We don’t care if unlawful orders come from a Democrat or Republican or if the violation is bipartisan.
We will not obey unconstitutional (thus unlawful) and immoral orders such as orders to disarm the American people or to place them under martial law. We won’t “just follow orders”.
Against all enemies …..
PRINCIPLES OF OUR REPUBLIC WE ARE SWORN TO DEFEND
As our Declaration of Independence states:
All men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, To secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men. Governments derived their just powers from the consent of the governed. Whenever any form for Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it and to institute new Government Governments long established should not be charged for light and transient causes.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce then under absolute Despotism .. … it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government
Each of you must remind yourself of those hard earned lessons, renew your understanding of the principles of American liberty and how those principles are reflected on the Constitution and Bill of Rights you swore an oath to defend.
And then you must search your soul and arrive at your own personal line in the sand.
REMEMBER YOUR OATH
If you are in military service or are a peace officer, remember your oath. We hope for a return to the Constitutional Republic free from fear and hatred. We hate only tyranny. You may someday find yourselves as the last bulwark against that tyranny.
We are not advocating or promoting violence or acts of aggression towards any person, group or organization or government, whether local, state or national. We simply want all public servants to live up to their oath to “support and defend the Constitution” as it is written.
At all Oath Keepers gathering, we provide an opportunity for those who have taken the oath to renew their oath and for those who have never sworn the oath to do so for the first time, all standing together and repeating the following:
I, ___________________ , do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, pledging my life, my fortune and my sacred honor. So help me, God.

~Oath Keepers: American Revolution Started Over Disarmament~
~Published on Jan 23, 2013~
The American revolution started on April 19, 1775, after the British regulars came to disarm the militia of their stockpiles in Lexington. It became the shot heard ’round the world.
Today, the same establishment that has openly violated much the Constitution and Bill of Rights, wantonly spied on communications and staked TSA agents at airports despite the 4th Amendment, and much more in a long train of abuses, is now seeking to dismantle the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
Right now there are a lot of people looking for a revolutionary leader; they are looking for someone to step up and organize a resistance against the government and the bankers. This is creating a vacuum of power. One that could be filled by someone who doesn’t have your best interests at heart.
