Alabamian (Alabaster) and Iraq War hero Noah Galloway, (NO Excuses) who lost his left arm and leg in a roadside bomb blast, delivered an incredible performance on Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) Monday night, bringing at least one judge to tears, and the audience to its feet.

Now a personal trainer and motivational speaker, Galloway doesn’t take excuses from his clients, fans and followers – and finds ways to get things done.

“You want a super hero?” Len asked after Noah Galloway and his partner Sharna’s short contemporary dance to Toby Keith’s “American Soldier,” “There it is.”

Monday night Galloway told the story of his “most memorable year;” sharing the night in 2005 he was nearly killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq:

“My most memorable year was 2005, on my second deployment to Iraq.”

Galloway and his former platoon leader, Lieutenant Jerry Eidson, then told the story of being out on a patrol in the night, attempting to see their surroundings in a hostile country with night vision goggles, when their Humvee rolled over a trip wire.

“It detonated a roadside bomb large enough it threw this 9,000 pound armored Humvee through the air.”

“Noah’s injuries were catastrophic,” said first responder Major Dennison Segui. “We didn’t think he was going to make it.”

Galloway woke up six days later on Christmas morning in Walter Reed hospital in Washington, D.C.:

“I was a physical person before the military. Once in the military, I had fallen in love with the job that I had, and suddenly I woke up and all that was gone,” Galloway said. “The career was gone, two of my limbs were gone, so I thought, ‘Well, there goes me ever being physical again.’”

Galloway said he tried to make it seem like he was ok, burying his grief, and drinking away his pain. Until one day he realized he couldn’t do that any more.

“This dance represents the journey of acceptance from the man I was, to the man I’ve become,” he concluded.

“I really looked in the mirror and quit looking at what I was missing, and paid more attention to what I still had left,” Galloway said, fighting to hold back tears. “I realized I had to make a change, and it had to happen fast; my kids were growing up.”

~ And when Noah looked into the mirror at the beginning of his dance, well that says it all ~ JP:

The robber stopped near the door – like he was looking inside the billfold – then, all of a sudden, he took off running.

We asked what scared the man off, Jandebeur said, “I pulled out my automatic and was getting ready to ventilate him.”

Other than a big bruise on his face, Jandebeur was in pretty good spirits. He said it’s just one more event in his pretty eventful life.

He hopes the guy gets caught and he’s thankful that nearby Video Revolution put up cameras and caught the whole thing on tape, including a shot of the robber’s face.

Footage also shows, earlier in the evening, the guy waited around, hid behind a pillar and waited around some more, until Jandebeur went outside so he could strike, but was caught off guard.

~ Check this 2nd Amendment Warriors:

“Anybody who doesn’t arm themselves is asking for trouble,” Jandebeur said.

If you recognize the man in the video, you can call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS

‘How Is That Not Concealment?!’

Megyn Kelly and Juan Williams tonight sparred on “The Five” over whether or not Hillary Clinton broke the law through her use of personal email as secretary of state.

megyn

If you think Juan looks stupid, it is because he is. And we stuck up for him, when it turns out NPR was smart to get rid of him! In this blogger’s opinion Megyn decimates Juan and I don’t even wanna give him a sentence here. I believe Megyn is the only worthwhile primetime on FNC. Heck, mostly all 24 hrs. I rarely watch FNC anymore since it became MsM and jock TV.

Kelly argued that the law says it’s a violation to willfully conceal records:

“She’s got all the documents on her computer, FOIA requests are coming in, congressional demands are coming in, litigation requests are coming in, she doesn’t produce any of the documents. How is that not concealment?” Kelly asked.

“We lost credibility from the next fight because of this vote today.” – Gary Palmer

IMHO a Reagan in the making! ~ JP

MUST see Gary on house floor speech after the vote. JUST type Palmer in search and click play.

House Session, Part 2

The House passed H.R. 240. The bill funds the Department of Homeland Security without the policy rider that blocks President Obama’s executive action on immigration.

THIS is what he said: Excuse the caps, its CSpan :) *The transcript for this program was compiled from uncorrected Closed Captioning.

ACTUALLY. WE ARE NOT THREE SEPARATE BUT EQUAL BRANCHES OF THE GOVERNMENT. THE ABUSE OF THE EXEC TESTIFY ORDER HAS DIMINISHED CONGRESS AND THE ABUSE OF THE SENATE RULES HAS DIMINISHED THIS HOUSE. WE ARE NOW REDUCED TO PASSING WHAT THE SENATE WILL ALLOW US TO PASS. AND WE ARE — AND THE SENATE’S REDUCED TO PASSING WHAT THE SENATE WILL NOT VETO. THIS IS ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION. WE HAVE THREE MORE DAYS IN WHICH WE CAN CONSIDER LEGISLATION THAT UPHOLDS THE RULE OF LAW, THAT RESTORES THE BALANCE OF POWERS. WE SHOULD TAKE THOSE THREE DAYS. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THIS IS A DAY THAT WE WILL REMEMBER FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES, THAT THE COUNTRY IS LOOKING TO US RIGHT NOW TO MAKE A DECISION WHETHER OR NOT WE WILL UPHOLD OUR OATH OF OFFICE. I CALL UPON EVERY MEMBER OF THIS HOUSE TO BE AN OATH KEEPER. I YIELD THE BALANCE OF MY TIME.

Palmer Votes Against Bill Funding Obama’s Unconstitutional Executive Action

“Netanyahu said we were the most powerful legislative body in the world. And we are until the President says we aren’t.” – Gary Palmer

March 3, 2015 Press Release:. As did ALL of Alabama congressional Republicans.

“The abuse of the executive order and abuse of the Senate rules has diminished this House.” - Gary Palmer

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) in a statement saying:

“The will of the American people cannot be forever denied. Republicans will have to come to realize that it falls on their shoulders to give voice to the just demands of the American people for a lawful system of immigration that serves their interests, defends their jobs, protects their security.”

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Gary Palmer voted against a bill that would allow for Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funds to go toward President Obama’s unconstitutional executive action concerning immigration, and is deeply disappointed that the bill passed:

“I have no higher priority as a member of Congress than restoring Constitutional governance. When it comes to funding DHS, the focus has been on immigration, but that is really not the issue. The real issue is the separation of powers set up by our Constitution. I believe the President, the Congress and the Courts should have the power given to them by the Constitution but not one power more.

“I am pleased that a court has given an injunction against President Obama’s unconstitutional executive order, and I hope that will result in this illegal order being permanently struck down. However, it is not the sole function of the judiciary to uphold the Constitution. Congressmen also take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution. This vote was not about politics, but about keeping my oath.

“Congress can and should pass legislation to secure our borders and fix our immigration system, but nothing in the law justifies unilateral action by the executive. The Constitution forbids the executive from unilaterally making law, and that is precisely what the President is attempting to do. I have consistently opposed measures that would legitimize President Obama’s unlawful executive action and I am deeply disappointed that this bill has passed.

“If Congress does not stand up for its own Constitutional role in the process of governance, no one else will. I fear this vote today will lead to further lawless action by the executive branch and further erosion of the powers granted to the Congress by the Constitution.”

January 21, 2015

From today’s Jewish Journal:

Sen. Robert Menendez hands down got the most enthusiastic reception of any speaker so far at AIPAC’s annual conference.

I’d say you could barely hear the New Jersey Democrat on Monday night but for the whoops and shouts, except that Menendez has a preacher’s style and his rich tenor and rolling cadences rode the cheering like a rodeo cowboy. He was in control, and everything he said was crystal clear.

So what happened?

Well, for one thing Menendez is the Democrat who puts the “bi” back in partisanship, a one-man bulwark against the notion that hewing to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s Iran-skeptic precepts makes you a Republican.

His tough talk was just the tonic for a lobby battled by perceptions that it is increasingly identified with the GOP.

“I can tell you one thing,” he said. “As long as I have an ounce of fight left in me, as long as I have a vote and a say and a chance to protect the interest of Israel, the region and the national security interests of the United States — Iran will never have a pathway to a weapon. It will never threaten Israel or its neighbors, and it will never be in a position to start a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. Not on my watch!”

“And, when it comes to defending the U.S.-Israel relationship, I am not intimidated by anyone — not Israel’s political enemies, and not by my political friends when I believe they’re wrong,” he said.

Then he took on Rice.

I take issue with those who say the prime minister’s visit to the United States is ‘destructive to U.S.-Israel relations.’

“And tomorrow I will be proud when I escort Prime Minister Netanyahu to the House chamber to give his speech! To show him the respect he deserves from every American who cares about our relationship with the only true democracy in the Middle East.”

The crowd went wild.

A middle school student in Georgia has become an viral sensation after releasing a YouTube video Saturday that defends former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and argues President Obama’s stance on Islamic extremism is evidence he doesn’t love America.

“If you really did love America, you would call [Islamic State] what it really is: an assault on Christianity, an assault on America and downright hate for the American values that our country holds — freedom of speech, freedom of religion and every single thing that our country stands for,” CJ Pearson said in the clip, which has amassed nearly 300,000 views since Saturday.

“I hope that one day people will get enough guts to speak out against your downright hatred for this nation,” he said.

“I want to applaud Mayor Rudy Giuliani for his comments about President Barack Obama,” CJ said in the clip. “Here the truth of the matter: I don’t want to be politically correct. I don’t care about being politically correct at this point. President Obama, you don’t love America.

“Here’s what you need to realize, that here in America, we don’t back down to terrorists,” he said. “We fight them on their own battleground and we annihilate them to the very end. Here in America, we don’t allow the government to take away what we work for. … President Obama, if you really did indeed love America … you’d fight for our values domestic and abroad.”

So I ask you obama, is CJ a racist? Better yet I betchya put CJ on the ‘Right-Wing Extremist terror watch list! Bah!

Gov. Scott said his Mom was gonna bake them chocolate chip cookies :)

LOVE this piece from Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Today!

walker-signs

A Republican governor from a blue-leaning state that actually practices the conservatism he preaches.

Suppose you were an immigrant who had just landed on America’s shores. If you picked up The New York Times in the past week, you might suspect that you had entered a time machine and catapulted forward to the year 2017. You’d probably ask (in your native language), “Who is this President Scott Walker that the Times keeps talking about?”

There’s an elementary fact that Walker’s opponents are incapable of learning: Every attack he endures simply endears him to more Republican presidential voters. Any time a liberal in Wisconsin pulls out a bullhorn, Fox News buys five new cameras.

union

When union protesters march on a home inhabited by his septuagenarian parents, it is electoral gold falling from the sky. Want to make fun of his lack of a college degree? Go ahead — Republicans will be happy to be the party that demonstrates you can achieve anything no matter what diploma you hold.

So on behalf of Scott Walker, I would like to welcome the national media to this simple little place we call “Wisconsin.” Just keep in mind — your foray into the world of Wisconsin politics only helps Walker show the nation what he’s achieved here.

Major Props to Christian Schneider, who is a Journal Sentinel columnist and blogger.

… ends forced dues! Now THIS is a worthwhile executive order Friends. Do we have another Wonderful Scott Walker in the rising?

Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner struck a first official blow on Monday against the public sector labor unions he has frequently criticized by ordering an end to a requirement that workers pay dues even if they decide not to join a union.

His executive order sets up a fight with the state’s powerful labor unions, a key ally of members of the Democratic-led Legislature, just as Illinois has begun divided government for the first time in more than a decade. Unions immediately lashed back, while top Democrats questioned the legality of Rauner’s action and said their legal teams would review it.
