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 first video is from PJ Media:A Guy Walked Into a Muslim Bakery and Ordered a Gay Wedding Cake…What do you think happened next?
Steven Crowder went into a bunch of Muslim bakeries in Dearborn, Michigan, and tried to order a “gay” wedding cake. Many of the bakers politely declined and sent him to other bakeries, including one man who tried to send him up the street to Kroger.
Oddly enough, we haven’t seen any mainstream media reporters ambushing unsuspecting Muslim bakers and demanding in McCarthyesque fashion, “Are you now, or have you ever been a homosexual hater?”
Could it be because, as Crowder notes in the video, “You’re still killed in virtually every Muslim country for being gay.”
The next set of videos is from a serious and surprising source, Theodore Shoebat…
Say that “Bestiality Is Wrong” or “Polygamy Is Wrong” and it’s not considered hate speech, but if you have the opinion that “Gay Marriage Is Wrong” the whole world jumps up and down screaming “racism” “bigotry” and “hatred”.
This is becoming the politically-correct norm, but no matter what one argues, this is suppressing free speech.
No one targeted pro-gay bakeries, but gay activists target Christian bakeries:
This experiment proves beyond doubt that the gay agenda is not just about their freedom to practice a sexual orientation, but the suppression of free speech…
To make our case we provided 3 video clips, the third one is a video showing homosexual activists in Ireland used the state to force a Christian bakery to make a cake with the slogan “Support Gay Marriage” for a pro-gay marriage event, but he refused which added a tremendous loss to his business. Several Christian bakeries were sued in the United States with several who lost their businesses and we said :
Enough is enough.
So Shoebat.com decided to call some 13 prominent pro-gay bakers in a row. Each one denied us the right to have “Gay Marriage Is Wrong” on a cake and even used deviant insults and obscenities against us.
It was all recorded. It will stun the American people as to how militant and intolerant the homosexual bakers were.
Christian Man Asks Gay Bakeries To Make Anti-Gay Cake (Part 1):
Irish Bakery Refuses to Make Gay Cake – Could Face Legal Action”:
Jul 8, 2014 ~ Ashers Baking Company declined an order from a gay rights activist, asking for cake featuring the Sesame Street puppets, Bert and Ernie.
The customer also wanted the cake to feature the logo of a Belfast-based campaign group called Queerspace.
The bakery firm could face legal action from the Equality Commission.
Here is our point. A Christian making a homosexual cake with “Support Gay Marriage” goes against his faith and a homosexual putting “Gay Marriage Is Wrong” goes against his faith as well. Now of course we honor their right to say no, this is not the issue, but what about honoring the Christian right to also say no?
The big lie of the homosexual agenda is this: They claim that they are only fighting for equality and tolerance.
On a day Iran and western powers reportedly agreed to move talks on Iran’s nuclear weapons program to “a new phase,” a commander of the Islamic Republic’s volunteer paramilitary force issued new threats of “wiping Israel off the map.”
The goal of Israel’s destruction is non-negotiable, Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi, head of Iran’s volunteer Basij Force said during a recent conference, according to a Kol Yisrael radio report. The Basij Force is a part of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps.
Such talk might be dismissed as idle rhetoric.

But Iran continues to beef up Hizballah’s rocket arsenal, smuggling guided warheads into Lebanon, the Jerusalem Post’s Yaakov Lappin reports.
Iran “is manufacturing new and advanced ballistic missiles, and cruise missiles,” Col. Aviram Hasson, an Israeli missile defense expert, told Israel Air and Missile Defense Conference in Herzliya this week. “It is turning unguided rockets that had an accuracy range of kilometers into weapons that are accurate to within meters.”
NOTE: Israel’s Home Front Command has warned cities that they may need to evacuate civilians in the face of an onslaught of dozens to hundreds of missiles in a single day, Lappin reports.
Those missiles are likely beyond the capability of Israel’s “Iron Dome” defense system, which intercepted scores of Hamas rockets fired at the country during last summer’s war in Gaza. “David’s Sling,” a similar system for longer range missiles, isn’t expected to be operational for another year.
Hizballah fighters are busy in Syria, fighting alongside dictator Bashar al-Assad’s forces in fighting that has claimed more than 210,000 lives. But the group continues to plan for the next war with Israel, too, perhaps because Iran’s rhetoric about seeking Israel’s annihilation is consistent and specific.
“The biggest threat to our security and our future was and remains Iran’s attempts to arm with nuclear weapons,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday. Iran’s Ayatollah Tweets That Israel Must Be Destroyed.
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.
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.
Barack Obama is doing damage to the Democrat Party that, while not irreparable, may well take decades if not longer to recover from. Not just on Capitol Hill — from Canada to Mexico, Atlantic to Pacific, governor’s mansions to local school boards Obama is obliterating Democrats everywhere. He’s fortifying red state strongholds, turning purple states red, and even toppling Democrat seats in solidly blue states. Republicans should almost lament the 22nd Amendment. With another term in office Obama could well deliver the governorships of California and New York to go along with the gifts of Maryland, Illinois, and Massachusetts he just airmailed them in November. Derrick Wilburn February 17, 2015 (from the American Thinker titled) The Democratic case for Impeachment
The principles of conservatism – personal empowerment, less government intrusion into private lives, a strong national defense, greater individual freedom & liberty, fiscal responsibility from our elected officials – make sense and work for all people, regardless of race or ethnicity.
The chasm between black (and brown) and conservative America is unhealthy for both sides, and at B&C.com we are dedicated to helping bridge that gap. Our deepest desire is to aid in bringing both sides to a place of mutual understanding and respect.
Black America, we have got to change the way we operate. Automatically running to one political party and voting for its candidates and policies without so much as considering another is fundamentally flawed. Conservative America, we have got to change the way we operate. Where is the outreach, where and what is the message to ethnic minorities? Not making an effort to reach divergent groups is fundamentally flawed.
Introducing the American Conservatives of Color. Being black and being conservative are not mutually exclusive. JUST listen to Derrick Wilburn:
Derrick Wilburn from American Conservatives of Color sits down with host Jon Caldara to discuss how the GOP can be less awful at appealing to black voters, and how the political Left has hijacked the message of Martin Luther King Jr.
