Read The Manliest Xmas Card EVER, Courtesy Of General Patton

At a critical juncture in the Battle of the Bulge, General George S. Patton’s Third Army became bogged down in its drive to relieve the legendary 101st Airborne Division trapped at Bastogne, Belgium.

An encircled force of 15,000 elite American soldiers defended the vital crossroads town from a German contingent that outnumbered them by nine-to-one in critical sections of the front.

Meanwhile, wintry conditions had grounded the Allied air force, neutralizing their massive advantage in air supremacy.

That’s when Patton called upon the power of prayer.

Rev. Msgr. James Hugh O’Neill, chaplain of the 250,000 man Third Army, composed what became known as the “Weather Prayer” at the behest of his general.

Here’s what it said:

“Almighty and most merciful Father, we humbly beseech Thee, of Thy great goodness, to restrain these immoderate rains with which we have had to contend. Grant us fair weather for Battle. Graciously hearken to us as soldiers who call Thee that, armed with Thy power, we may advance from victory to victory, and crush the oppression and wickedness of our enemies, and establish Thy justice among men and nations. Amen.”

On the reverse side of the prayer card distributed to every GI under his command, Patton wrote:

“To each officer and soldier in the Third United States Army, I wish a Merry Christmas. I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We march in our might to complete victory. May God’s blessings rest upon each of you on this Christmas Day. — G.S. Patton, Jr., Lieutenant General, Commanding, Third United States Army.”

The next day the weather cleared, American air power decimated the Nazis’ ability to wage war on the ground, and, well, the rest is history.

If that isn’t the Christmas card to end all Christmas cards, I don’t know what is!

Breaking News: Amtrak Launches A High-Speed Project Turned Deadly

Breaking News: Amtrak Launches A High-Speed Project Turned Deadly

 From Mommy Underground

America is about being bigger, better, and faster. You have seen this concept applied to various facets of our culture; in some situations, it may not have been optimal.

In a transportation unveiling, this proved to have an ill fate. Caution was not exercised in an industry that takes trusting lives into their hands every day.

Learning about not only what happened, but how it did, reveals insights that can prevent tragedy from striking again.

Fox News reported:

An Amtrak passenger train with more than 80 people aboard derailed in Washington state on Monday, killing at least three people and injuring dozens more.”

It was outside of Tacoma where the passenger train became one of 26 Amtrak derailments that have occurred since 2014, and the fourth since then that has happened in Washington state alone, according to Fox News.

A large majority of the people in the tragic calamity were rushed to nearby hospitals. Out of the over 70 that went to the hospital, 2 were critical, 11 were deemed serious and 1 was taken to surgery.

Fox News reported:

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency after Amtrak train 501 derailed around 7:30 a.m. along Interstate 5 as it was leaving the new Tacoma station.”

 Multiple sources say the train was speeding during the derailment that caused a total of 12 train cars and 2 engines to jump off the track.

USA Today reported:

Train 501 was going 80 mph Monday in a curve posted for 30 mph when several cars derailed and dangled off a bridge above Interstate 5, according to Bella Dinh-Zarr, a member of the National Transportation Safety Board that is investigating.”

The cause for this speeding and the derailment that ensued is not clear. Investigators are looking toward the engineer being distracted, or a railroad obstruction.

President Trump tweeted his sympathies for the victims Monday after the crash, which read:

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved in the train accident in DuPont, Washington. Thank you to all of our wonderful First Responders who are on the scene. We are currently monitoring here at the White House.”

The train accident that just occurred in DuPont, WA shows more than ever why our soon to be submitted infrastructure plan must be approved quickly. Seven trillion dollars spent in the Middle East while our roads, bridges, tunnels, railways (and more) crumble! Not for long!

 President Trump, also, pointed out the irony in overseas spending, while our infrastructure is in need of attention here in the United States.

President Trump tweeted:

The train accident that just occurred in DuPont, WA shows more than ever why our soon to be submitted infrastructure plan must be approved quickly. Seven trillion dollars spent in the Middle East while our roads, bridges, tunnels, railways (and more) crumble! Not for long!

During the Obama administration, the Democratic aim seemed to be making the United States a friend to everyone, to be politically correct in diplomacy, and to ignore the true needs of every citizen.

Thankfully, after the tremendous crash onto the highway, no motorists were killed, according to Pierce County officials.

Amtrak was launching a new line, called the “Cascades” service when the crash occurred. The new stretch was in efforts to run a faster train on a more direct route.

Fox News reported:

Monday was the first day of schedule changes to include two new round trips between Seattle and Portland, according to the Amtrak website. Amtrak train 501 is part of the new route running between Portland and Seattle daily. The Washington Department of Transportation spent $180.7 million project on passenger train improvement project, which sped up service by removing passenger trains from a route along Puget Sound that’s bogged down by curves, single-track tunnels, and freight traffic.”

 The Amtrak derailment was foretold with eerie accuracy by Lakewood Mayor Don Anderson in a comment to KOMO News after he proposed grade separations and was denied:

Come back when there is that accident, and try to justify not putting in those safety enhancements, or you can go back now and advocate for the money to do it, because this project was never needed and endangers our citizens.”

Anderson, also, said, “It was only a matter of time a deadly derailment will occur.”  This comment leaves many wondering if Amtrak had selfish interests when initiating this project that cost the lives of 3 people.

An important safety feature was set by Congress to be implemented by the end of 2018, that may have been able to prevent this unfortunate end.

USA Today reported:

The technology collectively known as “Positive Train Control” provides signals between tracks, trains and dispatch centers to slow down speeding trains or to stop them at the appropriate signals if the engineer isn’t responding. Railroads are installing the technology piecemeal across the country at a cost of billions of dollars.”

 “”The Positive Train Control equipment has been installed and is now still in testing, which is why the system has not been activated,” Jason Abrams, an Amtrak spokesman, said of the track owned by a Seattle-area transit company where the accident occurred.”

Whether or not the breaking system would have been used, it still does not account for the responsibility of the train engineer that was supposed to be in control of the speed.

As the investigation, that could likely take months, progresses we should have more definitive answers that will show whose shoulders this weighs most heavy.

Our prayers go out to those injured in the accident, and to those families that will never be the same after this tragedy.

Forward With Anti-life Measures

Forward With Anti-life Measures

 From Mommy Underground

Taking a life is a horrendous act, which requires psychological manipulation by the aggressor to be able to go through with it.

For those whose lives are taken, things are changed forever in their wake. Doubt and grief often plague the loved ones left behind.

There has been over 897,000 that have been aborted this year in the United States alone, and millions worldwide.

For them, their story doesn’t get to be told, they don’t get graves for loved ones to grieve at, and they don’t get a chance to plead their case for life.

This Christmas season, one child, who almost didn’t make it, will get the opportunity to make some memories thanks to her brave mom, and a medical marvel.

In Massachusetts a single mother, named Samantha, became pregnant with her 4th child, and with the societal pressures of such, decided she was going to seek out an abortion.

Samantha attempted to end the life of her unborn child at a western Massachusetts abortion clinic not once, but three times.

The first attempt she couldn’t make it because of childcare issues with her 3 boys at home. At a rescheduled appointment, Samantha made it to the waiting room, and you won’t believe what happened next.

National Right To Life News reported:

Then, Samantha tried a second time to abort her baby girl, this time keeping her appointment at a Boston abortion business. However, as she sat in the waiting room, waiting for the staff to call her name, Samantha was shocked when the nurse came in and called for another woman: Giselle.

 That was the name Samantha had picked out for her daughter, who she was just minutes away from aborting.”

 Samantha recounts, “It was at that point, I felt like that was a sign of some sort, and I ended up just freaking out and leaving the appointment.”

The pressures of life laid heavy on Samantha, and after only a short time, she made, yet, a third appointment at the abortion clinic.

This time the murderous physicians gave her a dose of mifepristone- a pharmaceutical that takes the life of your unborn child.

Completing this protocol requires an additional dose to be taken, but the negative effects begin at only one.

Immediately after taking the first dose, Samantha realized it wasn’t what she wanted for her child, she recounted, “I’d done the wrong thing.”

 Two weeks earlier, Samantha had visited the office of Abundant Hope, a pregnancy help center, located right down the street from the abortion clinic where Samantha had taken the chemical abortion pills.

While in the office of the help center, they gave Samantha the number to a hotline called the “Abortion Pill Reversal hotline” (877-558-0333); which she called.

National Right To Life News reported:

Within hours, Samantha was in the office of Abundant Hope’s medical director, receiving an emergency dose of progesterone. One of 350 physicians who make up the national Abortion Pill Reversal network, the doctor then worked with Samantha to prescribe an ongoing progesterone treatment plan to get her pregnancy back on track.”

Abundant Hope gave Samantha the support she needed to get through that trying time, and, more importantly, provided her with the means to reverse a choice that would have haunted her.

Samantha referred to the attempted abortion as “that horrifying thing that would have affected the rest of my life.”

Despite Samantha being one of nearly 300 women in the past 5 years that have saved their children from a moment of weakness, the Abortion Pill Reversal gets a bad reputation among abortion supporters and liberal political representatives.

The progesterone used in the Abortion Pill Reversal is FDA approved, and has been prescribed for decades, typically for alternative means.

National Right To Life News reported:

Ironically, Abundant Hope has come under fire in recent weeks from the pro-abortion Campaign for Accountability, which lodged a formal complaint with the state, accusing Abundant Hope of tricking women into rejecting abortion.

The complaint was filed less than a week after the staff and volunteers at Abundant Hope held a baby shower in Samantha—and her unborn daughter’s—honor.”

Abundant Hope will fight this preposterous complaint with all those they have helped saved in mind.

In just a matter of days, Samantha will meet her beautiful baby girl, Giselle.

The holiday miracle is touching many in her birth with the staff at Abundant Hope saying, “We’re very excited to meet this little girl in December.”

Every life is brought into this world a precious gift. We must speak out against the leftist manipulators that think they are in a position to judge a life worthwhile.

Any amount helps, but if we have a 1,000 people contribute $100 than we have a real chance at a very competitive race.    The maximum contribution per FEC regulations in $2,700 per individual.   But even if you can only afford $5, $10, $20, $50 or more…  every bit helps.

We have to pay for walk cards, mailers, broadcast Ads, signs, and event fees and travel, all that takes time and costs real dollars.   We are all in for everything we can do, and will put everything in the game and on the field but we really do need widespread, grassroots, financial support!

Please pass this along and Forward to Friends and family who will help!

Happy New Year!
